It’s not finished yet, but the McCormick Park Disc Golf Course is now officially open and playable.

Columbia County’s newest disc golf course debuted with a soft opening on Dec. 28 after a work party to pour the final tee pads and install the 18 baskets.

One of the course’s creators, Jared Fischer, said the course will host its first official PDGA event on March 15, and will hold a grand opening in the weeks leading up to that tournament.

Other additions are also planned for the course. Currently, small laminated signs placed near the tee pads instruct players where to go next. Fischer said improved tee signs are first on the list of additional improvements. Benches and a course kiosk are also in the works, and Fischer said those items will be installed over the next couple of months.
