MCPARC is pleased to announce that in 2004 we assisted with the creation of this area's first Disc Golf course. This first involved creating a course layout at Morris Park, weaving through the the gentle hills and massive trees of this quaint little park. The City of Fairmont has enthusiastically given their support for establishing the challenging and fun game, one that all ages can get involved in. The WVDGA has recently completed the 18-hole challenging woods course entitled “Orange Crush”. The 36-hole disc golf course complex offers multiple tee boxes and pin locations throughout. For updated tournament information and course activities check out the West Virginia Disc Golf Association.
