The Western Cary Disc Golf Course will be located across from the New Hope Church Road Trailhead Park. The course was originally planned for Mills Park, but based on a detailed analysis of the Mills Park site, both staff and consultants determined that it might not be the most appropriate location for a disc golf course due stream buffers and wet conditions. Several other sites in west Cary were reviewed. The future park site was chosen as the preferred site for the western disc golf course as an interim use. This site is adjacent to the American Tobacco Trail. Existing parking exists at the gravel lot (30 cars) located on New Hope Church Road. Parking and restrooms are also located at the New Hope Church Road Trailhead Park. There will be no bridge crossings needed to implement the disc golf course, and there is a great mix of land features and terrain, creating the setting for a course with a great balance of playability and aesthetics.
The current project will include the following features:
- 22 Holes
- Practices Baskets
- ADA Access from parking lot
Project Cost and Schedule
The disc golf course construction has been budgeted at $120,000 and is expected to open in Fall 2019.
