Kenosha County Executive Jim Kreuser invites the public to join him for the official opening of the new championship 18-hole disc golf course at 10:30 a.m., Friday, May 21 at Fox River Park, 9521 304th Ave., Salem.

The new championship 18-hole Grey Fox Course is in addition to the 9-hole intermediate course, called the Red Fox Course, which has been available at Fox River Park for about five years. Play at the Red Fox Course is free. Donations are encouraged for play at the Championship Grey Fox Course.

“This championship disc golf course is an excellent addition to Fox River Park,” Kreuser said. “Disc golf is a fun sport that the entire family can enjoy and I’m pleased we can offer it in our Kenosha County parks.”

The object of disc golf is for players to throw a flying disc into a basket or at a target. In a group outing, the player who gets through the course with the fewest number of throws is the winner.

The Fox River Park Disc Golf Courses are open daily during regular park hours, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. People are asked to bring their own discs to the course.

The championship Disc Golf Course at Fox River Park was designed by Terry D. Miller, New Berlin, a professional disc golfer and Professional Disc Golf Association coordinator .

Miller will be on hand Saturday, May 22 for Fox River Park’s first tournament, being called “Fox & Furious.”

Registration for the tournament begins at 11 a.m. and players will meet at noon. Play will be one round on the new Grey Fox Course. Participants are asked to meet at Area 2 at the park. Tournament Divisions are:

  • Juniors – Ages 14 and Under, $5.
  • Women – Ages 15 and up, $7.
  • Men – Ages 15 and up, $7.

There will be prizes for the top winners.
