Frisbee Sanctuary Week kicked off Monday with the grand opening of the first disc golf course in Marquette.
Dozens of disc golfers turned out for a ribbon cutting ceremony Monday afternoon at the new Powder Mill Course near the Kaufman Sports Complex. The course is free to the public and is designed to accommodate disc golfers of all levels by offering two sets of tee pads. It challenges players with a range of terrain.
"So you have long shots that are no longer than 30-40 feet wide. You play up and down off of rockout croppings so you play 30 feet up to a rockout cropping. After you finish that hole, you step up another 15-20 feet and play 50 feet down that same rock outcropping for a nice downhill shot," said course designer, Tim Kopacz.
Frisbee Sanctuary Week continues Wednesday night with a girls' and ladies' clinic from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Powder Mill course.
