One of Canada’s top disc golfers, Thomas Gilbert, visited our South Mountain 9 hole disc golf course on the weekend of October 15th.
Returning from the US and European pro circuits this summer, Thomas was coming home after placing second at “ Le Phe-Nominique, Quebec. Three hours from Nominique, Thomas was delighted to discover our 9 hole community golf course.
Disc golf is an accessible all inclusive sport that is gaining popularity around the world. Developing his game at grass-root courses such as ours, Thomas is recognized internationally and has earned multiple sponsors such as Thought Space Athletics who he partners with today.
Kudos to the keepers maintaining the South Mountain course, encouraging participation in an up and coming sport.
