AHOSKIE – The Ahoskie Recreation Department has opened its first new full 18-hole Disc Golf Course with several armature pads for beginners at The Ahoskie Creek Recreational Complex.

Hole 1 starts behind Baseball Field Number #1, running parallel to Lakeview Drive.

The public is invited to play this new and fantastic course.

The Disc Golf Course features a variety of terrain types, hole distances, challenging for beginner and advanced players alike on 70 acres of land that includes the baseball complex, soccer fields, multi-purpose fields, picnic shelters, amphitheater, play grounds, walking trails and a dog park.

“This course is sure to attract players from all over the region,” said Ahoskie Town Manager Tony Hammond. “Currently, there are competition courses in North Carolina and we hope that this one becomes an attractive course for tournaments and individual players. We’re pleased to add this course at the Ahoskie Creek Recreational Complex as the first location in Hertford County. Disc Golf play is free to the public.”
