The Village of Sturtevant could be home to a new, double nine-hole disc golf course.

A course in Sturtevant would be the first in Racine County after the county board voted last summer to divert funds from a proposed course to a new dog park instead.

In a nutshell, disc golf plays a lot like traditional golf; you stand at the “tee” and throw a Frisbee into a metal basket affixed to a pole as you follow the course from hole to hole. The player with the fewest throws comes out the winner.

According to the Professional Disc Golf Association, there’s no way to tell who played the first game and where, but the association lists the first documented game in 1926 in Bladworth, Saskatchewan. Disc golf is growing in popularity in Southeast Wisconsin, with several in Milwaukee and Kenosha counties, including at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside.

Local resident Nathan Strand approached Trustee Carrie Harbach about constructing a course in Sturtevant. Potential locations include the relatively new Hiawatha Crossing retention pond and recreation area.

The Continual Committee meeting begins at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Village Hall, 2801 89th Street. Call (262) 886-7200.
