According to a friend, that owns a dispensary and works with one in Billings, an old 9 hole disc golf course is being converted to a disc golf course. The old bar and restaurant is being converted to a medical marijuana dispensary. Anyone in Billings know any more about this. My friend could be off, perhaps Helena I thought, but he said it is going down for sure and they've already started.
The site would be the old Circle Inn in the Heights. I have heard the rumor as well but not sure of the deal. B-town is having quite the winter this year and has probably put the squash on anything being built so far. The place is real cool and did have a sweet little 9 holer behind the building next to a junk yard. There is a large fence so you can't see the junk but would be interesting to try to retrieve some good old plastic in leu of the Junk Yard Dog No affiliation with AF as of yet but who knows. They may have a gold mine in more ways than one now! Would be a great links course though. Not quite like the OTHER links course i love so much but could be real fun. There were lights on the course for night ball, Night Disc?
I just thought it'd be sweet to see ball golf going broke and disc golf moving in cause IT IS THE SPORT OF THE FUTURE PEOPLE!!!!
Sorry guys. I rarely use the word 'folf', but that is the best description for this course. I know the owners of the salvage yard next door, so I walked over one day to check out the course. I didn't go past the fence. This is a very amateur attempt at a course. All the grass is dead now. No one is maintaining it anymore. The targets are fence posts with a one-foot area of orange at the top. I noticed one target is a cut off limb of a tree (painted) at the southeast corner. This place needs some serious help from some experienced individuals. I wish they would have reached out to AirFairways, at least for a little guidance. I don't believe the owner realized the labor and financial aspects of putting in a quality course. It is a little disappointing. We'll see what the future holds. An illuminated night course would have been amazing. We still have hope for High Sierra park, which is in the process of approval for a new disc golf course in the heights area. It will definitely aid in the traffic issue and the rehabilitation of Pioneer Park.
It looks like they finally made some upgrades. I still haven't played there, but I see baskets now. I've heard there are nine holes with two tee pads, for 18 options.
