Lets get some Disc Golf variety in Ottawa! Sure, Jacques Cartier Park is great, but wouldn't another course help the sport grow tremendously in our nations capital? Not to mention it would double the annual tournaments held. Please give me some feedback and support!

DiscCanada,

I like your Chuztpah! Believe me, you are not alone.

The course at Jacques Cartier was installed by the Ottawa Disc Golf Club (ODGC). The course was originally 9 holes. Today, as you know, the course features 19 holes with three sets of tees.

The ODGC is a volunteer-run, non-profit organization committed to growing disc golf in the National Capital Region.

The next step is a new course on the Ottawa side. We are currently looking at several locations and going through the appropriate hoops to find out who owns what.

Once we have permission, we plan to install a test-course using tonal targets similar to the ones used in many courses out west. This approach will enable us to get feedback from our members concerning course layout before we make any permanent decisions.

In order to make this happen, the Club is working to raise money and grow its membership.

You can find out more about the ODGC from Rob Wormald at the Ultimate Disc Golf Store in the rear of CD Exchange’s Rideau Street location.
