Local Support for the Sport
Door County’s towns and villages have hopped on the disc golf bandwagon supporting newly constructed courses in their parks with more on the way. After Sister Bay and Jacksonport supported the construction of courses, Baileys Harbor and Egg Harbor are the most recent to approve construction of an 18-hole course that will be the site for tournaments in coming years.
