LELAND — The new Town of Leland disc golf course, located at 893 Village Road, is officially open to the public.

According to a town press release, The course has been one of the most requested parks and recreation amenities in Leland.

The 12-hole course is a combination of open land and wooded area that’s adjacent to Sturgeon Creek. It totals more than 2,900 feet in distance and features 11 par-3 holes and one par-4 hole. The course includes a parking area and is open from dawn to dusk.

The former 9-hole disc golf course at Founders Park closed last fall to prepare for upcoming park renovations. Following that closure and an outpouring of public support, town-owned property on Village Road was identified as a suitable location for a new course. Design and construction started in the fall and wrapped in March.
