Check out Disc Golf
Now that Forsyth’s new disc golf course is open and ready for use, you may want to try it for yourself.  Come borrow an official golf disc from the library and head to the park to see what disc golf is all about. Course creator Wilbur Wallis has selected discs especially good for beginning disc golfers, and they are available for check out at the library. Also available at the library are “What is Disc Golf” brochures from the Professional Disc Golf Association. Disc Golf is played like traditional golf, but instead of using a ball and clubs, players throw a flying disc toward a specially designed metal basket. The goal for players is to get to the basket in the fewest number of throws. The game can be as leisurely or as competitive as you wish and can be played solo, with a group of friends or as a family. Check out a disc at the library and try out Forsyth’s newest park feature, The Forsyth Park Disc Golf Course.
