If you enjoy disc golf, you’ve no doubt noticed recent changes to the course in Indian Riffle (I.R.) Park and the grounds surrounding the Kettering Recreation Complex. Holes 6-9 are in the process of being redesigned and laid out due to the Prugh Woods Development. New baskets, as well as new tee pads and signs, will be installed for the new hole layouts. All changes are slated to be completed by the end of 2017.
“With the help from our partners at Dayton Disc Golf Association, getting the entire course at Indian Riffle Park back up and playable is a top priority,” said Gary Schussler, Parks Superintendent for the Kettering Parks, Recreation & Cultural Arts Department. “We have heard our course is both challenging and playable for intermediate and expert disc golfers, but also for the novice disc golfer growing their skills.”
“The Indian Riffle Park disc golf course is one of 14 courses throughout the Dayton region that is highly used due to its convenient location and surrounding amenities,” explained Schussler. “Being one of the 1st courses within the area, the sport of disc golf has grown exponentially since its humble beginnings back in the late 1970’s. As the local following and interest grows it is imperative that the improvements and re-design of the I.R. Park course continue in being a staple course within the Dayton region.”
In addition to improving the course, please know the City has plans to plant over 200 trees in that area to address the removal of trees as a result of the development. Thank you for your patience as the City works to bring more housing options to Kettering as well as maintaining our play and nature spaces.
