OPELIKA— Opelika Parks and Recreation hosted a grand opening and ribbon cutting for the Spring Villa Disc Golf Course on Tuesday, Nov. 28, at 9 a.m.
The Spring Villa Disc Golf Course is comprised of two 18-hole championship disc golf courses. Both courses were designed by renowned course designer and disc golf professional Kevin McCoy. The Spring Villa Disc Golf Course offers two distinct playing experiences, the Graveyard Course and the Rock Course.
THE GRAVEYARD COURSE
As the name suggests, this course offers a thrilling challenge with tighter fairways and steeper elevation changes. Disc golfers looking for an adrenaline rush and a true test of their skills will find the Graveyard Course to be a formidable adversary. This course promises to push players to their limits and reward them with breathtaking views of Spring Villa Park’s natural beauty.
THE ROCK COURSE
The Rock Course was designed with a more diverse range of skill levels in mind. The course’s terrain is much easier to navigate but dense vegetation, relentless obstacles and twisting fairways demand precise control and even seasoned players will be challenged.The Spring Villa Disc Golf Course is located in the northern end of Spring Villa Park. It shares a parking lot with the Opelika Community Archery Park and has access to bathrooms. The park is open seven days per week from dawn until dusk. The Spring Villa Disc Golf Course is free and open to the public.
