World War I Park DGC, North Attleboro: Ahh... That New Course Smell!

6/16/2014 by mcmanus



Once considered a barren disc golf wasteland,  the Route 495 corridor in Southeastern MA is slowly filling in with new courses. Just a few years ago, Borderland State Park was the only course option between Cape Cod and the disc golf mecca of Central Mass and the North Shore courses.  Since then, Dacey Community Fields DGC has been installed in the town of Franklin and most recently, a 9 hole layout at the beautiful World War I Memorial Park in North Attleboro. 

   
A great mix of elevation changes, mature hardwoods and large rock outcroppings, WWI Park Disc Golf Course presents a fun and challenging all woods layout surrounded by a beautiful park setting.  Course organizers have hosted several workdays over the last few months to get the 9 hole layout in place (keep an eye on the previously listed facebook link for info on the course).  Presently, the fairways have been carved out and baskets are in place, so let the race for the course record begin!



As is the case with most disc golf courses on public lands, the park has multiple uses, so please respect other users of WWI Memorial Park.  Be sure to park in designated parking areas only and show the same level of respect you would use on your own home course.  This course has the possibility of expanding to 18 holes as long as players continue to show respect for the land, the park facilities and other users of the park. 



Many thanks to Jay Mello, Pete Violet and the many selfless volunteers who have worked on making this latest addition to the 495 corridor a reality!  You can follow the course progress and get the latest info on the WWI Memorial Park DGC facebook page here or on NEFA.com here
