|Description & Services|
In the fall of 2012, The Village of New Minas constructed the Valley’s first ever disc golf course at Lockhart & Ryan Park. “The Links at Lockhart & Ryan Park” is Nova Scotia’s first public- 18-hole-basketed course. It is free to play, and discs may be borrowed from New Minas Recreation. Simply stop by the Louis Millett Community Complex during regular business hours to sign them out.
What is Disc Golf?:
Disc Golf is played much like regular golf, but instead of trying to hit a ball into a hole, contestants attempt to throw discs into a basket. Discs are weighted differently, allowing for participants to use “drivers”, “mid-ranges”, and “putters”. There are currently over 3000 established disc golf courses in North America. Most holes at the Links at Lockhart & Ryan Park are par 3’s.
