BILLINGS - Illinois
Temperatures continue to drop and on Wednesday afternoon, the weather wasn't the most inviting for disc golf enthusiasts at the new course.
Yes, that's right. A new disc golf -- folf -- course is ready for use right across the street from the High Sierra Dog Park in the Billings Heights.
The once dream, turned reality experienced a long road to opening as the project to open a folf course began more than five years ago when the idea was spawned in a Skyview High School class.
It's now the third course in Billings as Phipps Park (known as Diamond X) and Pioneer Park see tens of thousands of rounds played each year.
More than $50,000 later, the "soft opening" of the course means there is a few more pieces to put together before Billings Parks & Rec Department dedicates the course.
It plans to add a Q-Code to scan to your phone, providing a map to the 18-hole course.
Parks Director Mike Whitaker said the department will erect a kiosk for players at the entrance.
The dedication will take place sometime next month.
