The disc golf course is a project on track for completion this year.

Andrew Miller of the Greater Cincinnati Flying Disc Association said his organization has been working to create a 18-hole disc golf course at the park.

Last year, the work involved surveying the area for the course and clearing the land, he said.

This year, club members plan to finish cleaning up any debris and preparing the fairways, he said.

Miller said by May club members hope to finish installing tee pads at each hole.

“The goal is to start playing in June,” he said.

Miller said his organization is a non-profit group with about 150 members that promotes disc golf in the Cincinnati area.

The group has been involved in developing about 30 disc golf courses.

He said the Goshen Park Board approached the club about putting in a course at Marr Park.

“We walked the land and thought it was a great opportunity,” he said. “We have a lack of courses on the east side.”

The disc golf course will be free and open to members of the public, Miller said.

In today's Cincy Enquirer there was an excellent article on the Goshen course with a focus on Adam's incredible amount of work he's invested in the course. Nice mention of the GCFDA, too. It was in the hometown section. Here's the link:

That is about the best publicity possible. Great job all who have donated their time and resources. Thanks to the GCFDA for the donation of $1000 toward the course.
