New Disc Golf Course Open in Richland

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - A new disc golf course is now open in Richland with elevation changing terrain and six-foot sage brush.

James Lawless Park is home to Richland's first disc golf course. The Columbia River Disc Golf Club says golfers will not be disappointed playing in the rugged brush filled park.

"The baskets are really set up in a way that they play around the sage brush. It's old growth sage brush. So, disc golfers like to protect the land that you use. You really just play the course the way it's designed and you're not taking apart anything," said Randy Kirkpatrick with the golf club.

Kirkpatrick says this course will help alleviate some of the crowding at the other courses and open it up so more people can play in the area.
