“I am really excited that we were awarded this grant,” said Tim Petrea with the Waynesville Parks and Recreation Department. “Disc golf is a great sport that is growing by the day here in Waynesville.”
The Waynesville Disc Golf Juniors Team is meeting every Tuesday to practice and prepare for the Western Carolina Juniors Championship to be held on Aug. 3 at the disc golf course along Richland Creek in Waynesville. Anyone interested is welcome to participate. There is a small fee involved in the program.
The Waynesville area is home to several disc golf courses, including an 18-hole course at the Waynesville Recreation Center and another one at Haywood Community College.
