It is a pleasure to announce the Walton Community Park Disc Golf Course is ready for play.

A 2012 design by Fred Salaz.  Requested by Boone County Parks and Recreation.  Construction by Boone County Parks and Recreation.

This 9 hole course features concrete tee pads, up and down hill lines, wide open and wooded fairways, as well as right and left turning holes.

The disc golf course at WCP is the latest amenity provided by Boone County Parks and Recreation.  Other WCP amenities include:
three reservable shelters
baseball/softball field
soccer field
two basketball courts
two tennis courts
paved volleyball court
.7 mile paved walking trail
along with our other 2012 additions
an updated and expanded playground (I know it is big, but no adults please.)
a three enclsosure  dog park

Walton Community Park is located just off Interstate 75 at the Walton Verona Exit (171) near the Walton Verona High School.  Complete driving directions, along with a map of the course, can be found on www.dgcoursereview.com

**** details ****
Who needs what to get WCP on our courses page?
It was not me harassing BC parks to get a course in at Walton.  But I would like to know who and thank them.
The signage is not up at this time.

Thanks Rod!
Great location for anyone coming through. I can see all sorts of people having a picnic round on their travels. Heck, I might have to play it coming AND going to Louisville, Lexington, and any/all points south.

Jeff walton is out of the way if on way to louisville, but your right on the lexington front. I lived in Walton til I was 13 and used to throw my xd around the park when my uncle couldnt come get us for a round. Great news that the course is in, not only is the park right off the interstate but right by the local high school. Could see alot of new younger players from that area, and maybe that championship level course in Verona is still in play? Any one have a map? We Kenton county people need to get on our parks, boone has three to our one sure bank is great but Boone is starting to lure me back low taxes and they have more golf!

Played a couple times through today. Beautiful fall day for some light discin'.

Fun little 9 holer and pretty close to my place so it's nice to have another option. Gonna be a great course to teach new/younger players on.

Photos of the teeshots and basket areas have been uploaded to DGCR.

Late getting this out. Kevin (my youngest) came up for Father's day. We played thru WCP a couple of times. Thought it was cute. Took a Flicker, Stalker, Buzz and Challenger. Ended with a -4 and a -6. Beat it like a drum.
