Something flying in the air...
Throughout the greater Houston area, there are parks everywhere. In every part of town, at least one park has a local disc golf course. Disc Golf, one of the fastest growing sports anywhere, is an inexpensive and fun way to get out and exercise. Played by young and old, men and women, Houston’s Disc Golf community is one of the most active in the sport.
This weekend (April 13-15), the 2018 Texas State Disc Golf Championships is being held in the Spring/Cypress/Conroe area. Encompassing 4 courses and 3 different towns, the area will see 300 talented players representing the entire United States. The tournament is in its 23rd year.
Course locations include Bud Hadfield Park (Texas Army Trail Disc Golf Course) in Cypress, Northside Christian Church (Spring), McDade Park (Conroe), and the championship course at Spring Valley Golf & Disc Golf (Spring). Players will compete for 3 days playing 3 rounds to determine both professional and amateur champions.
This year’s event is hosted by the North Side Chain Gang, a local volunteer disc golf club based out of Spring/The Woodlands area. The club, celebrating their 10 year anniversary, has spent the last 8 months preparing for this event, and raising sponsorship from local businesses.
