Muskingum College Opens New Disc Golf Course, Expanding Student Programs and Activities

Growing out of a student-generated idea, a new nine-hole disc golf course is now open on campus.

Student Senate President Steven M. Wright, and fellow students Elissa M. Fishbaugh, Thomas Williams, and Jeremy M. Finkel were honored for their work at a celebration in September with College officials in attendance.

“Students were engaged in every process and now, the result is an exciting new course that can be shared by all students,” said President Dr. Anne C. Steele. She thanked the students for their “terrific ideas” regarding construction of the course and called it their “lasting legacy” to Muskingum College.

“We’re happy to see that what started off as an idea was able to come to existence through hard work,” said Wright.

The course is located near the Patton and Kelley residence halls.

Nancy Chess-Felde was the landscape architect for the project. The natural landmarks of the campus make the Muskingum course both challenging and beautiful. The equipment of the course blends into the trees and remains unobtrusive to the natural beauty of the campus.
