Lappe Nordic Center would like to announce that they have committed to the installation of an 18-hole disc golf course starting in spring 2022 with the goal of installing more on the property for disc golfers in the future.
It has been a little while since a new course has been designed / installed in the region and with the explosion of the sport locally, the need for more places to play disc golf in Thunder Bay has grown significantly. The need has also grown for a course where disc golfers are more the focus and less of an afterthought. In recent years, traditional golf courses have been a target for disc golf courses but the conversion-style installations often come with established clientele that understandably don’t always wish to share their favourite stomping grounds.
Lappe Nordic Center would like to announce that they have committed to the installation of an 18-hole disc golf course starting in spring 2022 with the goal of installing more on the property for disc golfers in the future. Players that have played disc golf in the states of Minnesota or Wisconsin might find some familiar shots and similarities in the terrain. Rolling hills, fairways that go from very wide to very narrow, open field plays, water carries and a whole lot of up and down. The design for the course has already begun with installation beginning in summer 2022. There is currently no date for completion, these things take time to get right and there is no rush.
Disc golf has been long proven to be the perfect off-season compliment to cross-country / nordic skiing with many courses installed on tracks worldwide successfully. The LNC property is about as perfect as it gets for disc golf in the community as it will provide an experience very different than any course in the region. With many of the Lappe Nordic Center’s tracks being designed for more than one lane of skiing, the width allows for more room for discs to fly freely.
Those looking to sponsor signage, individual holes and other parts of the course whether as a business or individually can reach out to Superior North Disc Golf through this website to be put in touch with the course manager. More news on the impending new course as it becomes available!
