Stuart Nelson Park Disc Golf Course

Disc golf course signThe City of Paducah opened an 18-hole disc golf course at Stuart Nelson Park in March 2007.  The Greenway Trail bisects the course.  Disc golf is played like ball golf; however, flying discs and large baskets are used.  One stroke is counted each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred.  The winner is the golfer with the lowest score.  At each hole is a sign that shows the hole layout, the par, and the distance in feet.  The City of Paducah thanks West Kentucky Disc Golf Club member, Mark Koebel, in addition to other members for constructing benches out of logs at the various holes.  Paducah also appreciates the construction of a wooden bridge as a local Eagle Scout project.
