Hav Life and Parks Foundation View Disc Golf Program

POSTED: July 24, 2015

Representatives from the Hav Life Foundation and the Friends of Bettendorf Parks Foundation will be at the Life Fitness Center on Monday, July 27 at 5:15 p.m. to view the disc golf program.

The Hav Life Foundation provided a grant for $1,250 to help purchase the supplies and equipment to help start the program. The Friends of Bettendorf Parks also contributed the same amount to make sure the program was kept at a low a cost as possible for the participants. Disc Golf is a popular game and with two courses in Bettendorf and several others in the Quad City area. It is gaining new players all the time. This program offers youth between the ages of 8 and 18 some instruction and basic equipment to learn and play the game. They meet for six weeks from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Since the first workshop offering filled up within the first day of registration, the Parks and Recreation Department is looking to offer another session in the near future.
