Tetons Disc Golf Course: Volunteer Day

Updated: Apr 24, 2023

ElevateUT Disc Golf held a volunteer day on April 22nd, 2023 to prepare the brand new 9-hole disc golf course for its grand opening on April 28th. Volunteers came out to help with various tasks such as cleaning up trash, building the "island hole" 6, moving wood to designated areas for chipping, and building stairs after hole 9. 30 volunteers donated their time in exchange for 5 dozen donuts donated from Dunford Bakers and 90 discs donated from MVP Disc Sports.

ElevateUT Disc Golf's mission is to bring communities together through the sport of disc golf. This new course, located in the West Jordan, is a perfect example of that mission in action. The course is not only a great addition to the community, but it also serves as a complement to the 18-hole course that Salt Lake County is installing nearby in the new "Bingham Creek Regional Park" built in the former Welby Gravel Pit.

ElevateUT Disc Golf would like to extend a special thank you to all of the volunteers who came out to help prepare the course for its grand opening. Mark "The Sledgend" Kohut and his family, Zac Troff, Joe Kondor, Matt Belchak, Ron Smith, Mitch Balle, Dan Troff, Kit and Jackson Loyd, Rod Smith, Rob and Maretta Wright, Dave Roper, Coby and Tren Shurz, Randy Booth, Noel Legarre, Chris Norman, Mandie, Shae, Colton and Kingston Chamberlain, Evil, Trevan Allison, Weston Ringer, Josh McCluskey, and Jameson Scott all played a huge role in making this new course a reality.

In addition to the volunteers, ElevateUT Disc Golf would like to thank Bob Bumgarner for his great design and inspiration for the course, David Weaver for his incredible artwork, Doug Smith for documenting the volunteer effort, ElevateUT Disc Golf Board Member Sean Kelley, Corey Mecham for his drone work, and Hayden Seager for designing the tee signs. The organization would also like to express gratitude to Mayor Dirk Burton, Isaac Astill, and Dave Naylor from West Jordan for their support and hard work on the project.

This new disc golf course is a great example of what can be achieved when a community comes together. We are excited to see the impact it can have in a state that embraces outdoor recreation like Utah does. ElevateUT Disc Golf is committed to raising the bar for our existing courses and installing new ones. If you like what ElevateUT Disc Golf is doing in the state of Utah, consider becoming a Patreon patron or making a one-time donation.

Thank you to everyone who helped make The Tetons Disc Golf Course a reality. We hope to see you on the course soon!
