The sport of disc golf has experienced explosive growth over the past few years and so has the interest in it from both public parks and private landowners. As we’ve seen lately, Loudoun County has not been immune to this.
The LoCo Disc Golf Club couldn’t be more excited to announce that we have signed an official Memorandum of Understanding with the board of directors of The Freedom Center in Lucketts, VA to develop no less than 27 holes of disc golf on their land. This beautiful 100 acre piece of property has amazing features with elevation, water, and lots and lots of trees.
Club member Tim Lawson proposed the idea to club leadership late last year and after months of discussion with the property owners, and a signed agreement in place, we embarked upon finding an experienced disc golf course designer. We are very fortunate to have engaged John Biscoe to help us make this dream a reality. Not only has John been one of the pillars of disc golf in the Commonwealth for close to two decades, he is the designer of Virginia’s highest rated disc golf course, Hawk Hollow. If you’ve ever played Hawk Hollow then you know how lucky we are to have John working with us on the development of this course.
We expect the design to be completed in March at which time the real work begins. We’ll need all hands on deck for both building the course and raising money for equipment. Keep your eyes open for more information as we get started on what promises to be Northern Virginia’s next great disc golf course.
