  Boardman Park Expands Disc Golf Course, Sets Tourney  
  February 8, 2018 Edition  
     Boardman Park announces the expansion of its Disc Golf course to 18-holes. An additional 9-holes is scheduled to be completed by late winter.
      The 9-holes will play through the wooded area of the park, located just east of the tennis courts. Each hole is densely wooded and provides water hazards and elevation changes, with two holes playing over McKay’s Run Creek. The natural environment not only provides players with an appreciation of the beauty of nature, but also provides a greater challenge than the family friendly front 9-holes. This will be the only disc golf course in Mahoning County to feature 9-holes through a heavily wooded natural area.
      The 1st annual Boardman Park Disc Golf Open on Sun., Mar. 25 in celebration of the expansion of park’s disc golf’s wooded nine holes.
      The tournament is hosted by Mahoning Valley Disc Golf Association (MVDGA). The will be two rounds of golf. Sign-in is at 8:00 a.m.; the first round starts at 9:00 a.m.; lunch break is from noon to 12:45 p.m. Round two starts at 1:00 p.m. Players will be divided into three divisions depending on skill level: Advanced, Intermediate, and Recreational.
      Starting at 3:00 p.m. there will be side games including a ‘Ring of Fire’ putting tournament, CTP throw off, and a long drive competition. Players will be able to register that morning for the tournament; however, MVDGA is asking the players to register in advance so they can properly prepare for the event. To register go to discgolfscene.com or comment on the MVDGA Facebook page. For more information, call Boardman Park (330)-726-8015
