New disc golf courses open at Chennault Park

MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Two recently finished disc golf courses in Monroe received a little extra attention Wednesday.

The two courses were officially opened Wednesday morning at Chennault Park. Crews finished work the green course in Spring 2017, and they put the finishing touches on the blue course in November.

The 36-hole track features brand new chain baskets. John Taylor, the designer of the course, says the park has already hosted many people wanting to get out and enjoy.

"Come out and play. We're having a charity tournament this weekend to buy bicycles for the youth here in this community so please come out and just attend. You can watch, you can come out and play, and you don't have to play professionally. It's open for everybody."

There's even a major tournament on the books already for Memorial Day Weekend in 2018, but until then you can head out to the course during regular park hours and try it out for free.
