I was walking my doggies at Walter Jenkins Park this afternoon, marveling over the explosion of activity by disc golfers. I could see at least five groups and all of them were carrying or wheeling the trademark bags of discs and equipment. I even got to see a disc fly off course and disappear under the rushing water of Cary Bayou (Yes, not all of them float). The sudden rain storms have the bayou moving pretty good and just a couple of days ago, it was dry.
I talked to a number of the players who hailed from Kingwood and asked them how our course compared to the more than 50 courses in the Houston area, and as one they remarked it was a premier course. They were very excited about the upcoming tournament August 24th and said the park would be loaded with golfers from all over the state.
Baytown Parks under Superintendant Scott Johnson, has done a good thing and kudos all the way around to Parks planner Dustin Schubert and the other folks involved in making this course a reality. For more information on disc golf, contact the Houston Flying Disc Society.
