Disc Golf course ranks high with players from around the region

SEGUIN, Texas – The popularity of the city’s new disc golf course continues to rise – not just with locals, but with players across the region. Last week, a group of players met at the course for a mid-week mini-tournament.

“One of the best courses around. The park itself is beautiful -trees, grass, it’s next to the river. When it rains it doesn’t get muddy like other courses. When it’s hot, the constant shade makes it very tolerable,” said Mike Herrera, disc golf player.

On November 5th, the Starcke Park Disc Golf Course hosted its first tournament organized by Converse Disc Golf Association.

“There ended up being 86 players and turned away many others that wanted to play but I could not fit them all in,” said Thomas Martin, Tournament organizer/Converse Disc Golf Association.

The 18-basket course is one of the final park enhancement projects funded by the 2013 voter-approved bonds that also paid for our new library and Park West. The brightly colored main sign with course map is located on the restrooms next to the playscape. ###
