New public disc golf course opens on south side | Events
A new 18-hole disc golf course will challenge disc golf players on Madison's south side, the county executive said.
On Friday Dane County Executive Joe Parisi said the Capital Springs Disc Golf Course features 18 challenging holes surrounded by picturesque prairie restoration areas that help provide grassland bird habitat.
The new disc golf course is on the Capital City Trail near Lake Farm County Park in the Capital Springs Recreation Area.
A bicycle parking area off of the Capital City Trail allows users to bike or drive to the course.
A Dane County disc golf permit works at both Capital Springs and the disc golf course in Token Creek, but it is not accepted at City of Madison disc golf courses.
An annual disc golf permit is $48, and a daily permit $8, the county executive’s office said.
The course is the Dane County Parks Department’s second disc golf course. The first, Vallarta-Ast at Token Creek County Park, was expanded from 18 holes to 27 holes last year.
Parisi said the course was designed by retired professional disc golfer.
Parisi said an educational kiosk with information regarding the many archaeological resources found throughout the Capital Springs Recreation Area will be installed later this summer.
