November 3, 2019 saw about 100 people come and try out BC's newest disc golf course at Veterans Park on Bowen Island.
Endorsed by BC Premier John Horgan on the community's Facebook page, the course is off to a great start. Opening day was sunny and warm for the beginning of November and even brought over a few carloads of people from the mainland to try it out.
The course is nine holes, beginner-friendly and the hope is it will become a hub of community activity on the island.
Huge kudos to Sam Nosek, who spearheaded the project, designed and built the course and signed all the sponsors for its development. Big thanks to Jeremiah Hart of Hartwood Creations for building the sign structures, Chris Hartmann and Jamie Bennett for their input on planning and design, and Nate Gosse and Sarah Gander for help with GPS coordinates and mapping.
