Parks & Rec and SEMO team up for disc golf course at Capaha Park

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - The Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation Department, Southeast Student Government, and Recretion Services at Southeast are teaming up to build a disc golf course at Capaha Park. The three entities are sharing the cost of the project.

The disc golf course will use baskets and frisbees in a ten-hole golf course spread out over 4000 feet at Capaha Park. The service will be provided free of charge, but the players will have to supply their own frisbees according to Troy Vaughn, director of Recreation services at Southeast Missouri State University.

"You don't have to be a great golfer to come out and do this. Men and women alike will enjoy it. If you even have a disability there's even some opportunities there," Vaughn said. "There's so many different, unique things that you can do with this. For kids as young as four or five they can get out there and walk and play with moms and dads and brothers and sisters."

The disc gold course will be open during the park’s regular hours. Vaughn says that the course will open in late April.
