McTrustry worked with the park board and Youngstown State Director for the Office of Career and Academic Advising Justin Edwards planning the course. Edwards is involved with the Mahoning Valley Disc Golf Association. “That park is really in many ways is one of the more optimal plots of land that I have had an opportunity to design on,” Edwards said. “It’s going to be a really nice mix of really just using the beautiful space, but there is going to be some nice challenges on the course as well.”

The disc golf course will begin near the park entrance and consist of 18 holes along the outer edge of the park so other park activities go unhindered. The Mahoning Valley Disc Golf League is focused on working with communities, designing courses, and teaching young people along with creating leagues and tournaments.

Edwards considers disc golf as a financially accessible and low-entry sport. “You can start just by knowing how to throw a Frisbee,” Edwards said. “He said he’d like to make it challenging enough for league games, but not so challenging that they are going to scare the average player off,” McTrustry said.

The Youngstown Disc Golf Club is another area group that focuses more on competition. McTrustry looks forward to increasing recreational opportunities in the area.
