With the construction of our disc golf course, students and staff at Mount Pisgah Academy are able to enjoy the outdoors in a new way this school year. Disc golf is exactly what it sounds like, the game of golf played with Frisbees. While it might be hard to imagine an entire golf course on the campus of Mount Pisgah Academy, it is actually well suited for disc golf. “For many, having a disc golf course on campus was a long sought after dream, and COVID-19 was the perfect excuse to finally build,” says Darrell Bedwell, local parent, supporter, and designer of the course. Bedwell, with the help of many others, was excited at the opportunity to give students the ability to get outside while doing something fun and active together. Currently, MPA has nine holes completed, and plans to expand to a full 18-hole course in the future.
There are many negative things that one could focus on this year alone; however, MPA has been blessed by seeing the joy a simple thing can bring to campus, and thanks everyone that has made this small dream come true.
