Disc golf courses are one step closer to becoming a reality in two communities. The Baileys Harbor Plan Commission and the Egg Harbor Parks and Public Works Committee gave their initial support to installing disc golf courses, sending it to their full boards for final approval. After knocking down potential knowledge barriers about the sport, Julie’s Park Café and Motel owner and Door Disc Golf founder Shane Solomon says much of the discussion is now centered on funding the courses.
Solomon says it is his goal to privately finance the courses through the group’s GoFundMe page so it does not put stress on the tax base. The village of Sister Bay will begin installing its own disc golf course as soon as the ground thaws.
