Greene County Parks & Trails to Unveil Championship Disc Golf Course
Recreational and competitive disc golf players will soon have a world-class course to play close to home. Greene County Parks & Trails invites the public to the ribbon cutting for the new Caesar Ford Park Disc Golf Course on Saturday, October 19 at 2:00 p.m. at 520 S. Stringtown Rd., Xenia. Refreshments and commemorative discs will be available while supplies last.
The public is also invited to participate in the Innova Disc Golf Pro Clinic with PDGA Pro World Champion Steve Wisecup and FPO Champion Christine Jennings. Steve and Christine have strong connections to the Dayton area. Born and raised in Dayton, Steve now lives in California and works for Innova. Christine lives and works in the Dayton area as an Innova-sponsored Female Pro Open player. The clinic is free and will start at approximately 2:30 pm.
Participation in the Best In Dayton (BID) Finale tournament round on Saturday morning and the Break the Chains Doubles after the clinic are open to the public as well. Preregistration for both events are encouraged, and each preregistered player in the BID tournament will receive lunch and a Grip It and Rip It signature disc by J. Gary Dropcho. The pre-registration form can be found at dgscene.com/CFPGrandOpening

Gary Dropcho, senior course designer with over 30 years of experience in the sport. Local enthusiasts anticipate that this course will draw interest from around the U.S. and from other countries. Course planning and development was supported by Brian Crabtree and the team at Dayton Disc Golf, as well as Innova Disc Golf.
