CLASS XXIII PROJECT – DISC GOLF COURSE
Gilbert Leadership Class XXIII is excited to announce the building of the Town of Gilbert’s first public disc golf course at Freestone Park. Construction of the course is scheduled for completion on Saturday, May 2nd.
Class XXIII will contribute by providing a desired, family-friendly recreational activity at one of the Town’s most frequented parks. Identified as a potential amenity in the Town’s Master Parks and Recreation Plan, the disc golf course, played much like regular golf but with discs instead of clubs and balls, will feature nine holes and a practice hole. The course is being designed so that most ages, abilities or skills will be able to take advantage of this new community amenity. Golfers can bring their own discs or borrow discs from the Freestone Recreation Center at no cost. Additionally, class members will be celebrating Gilbert’s heritage by seeking donors in various areas such as education, public safety, healthcare, farming, etc. The course will have decorative benches and theme messages along the way highlighting these key components of Gilbert’s heritage.
