DISC GOLF COURSE
In the late 1950’s and early 1960’s a series of classes from Cashton Schools were asked to assist in planting the original pine trees in the Village Park. That forestry project has stood the test of time in beautifying, providing habitat and recreation for generations of Cashton residents. Today, a new opportunity to create a lasting improvement in the Park is upon us. The Village of Cashton Board of Trustees has authorized the building of a Disc Golf course to be created in the area of the Village Park Pines.
There are more than 3,000 Disc Golf courses in the United States and nearly all have been installed by municipal units of government. It is a sport played by all ages, year round, in all climates, and fits well into park areas that generally get little use, such as the Pines at the Village Park.
Disc Golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of hitting a ball into a hole , you throw a more streamlined looking Frisbee disc into a supported metal basket. The goal is the same as golf which is to complete the course in the least number of shots. However, because disc golf is so easy to understand and play, it serves a broader array of individuals looking for recreation. Young and old, men and women, families with small children- all can play Disc Golf.
Besides the fun of Disc Golf, The Pines acts as the home course for Cashton Cross Country events. It is also a fantastic spot for cross country skiing and snow shoeing during the winter.
