Another Cromwell Connect project is now is place, with the 9-whole disc golf course having just been installed at Anderson Park, following Cromwell Community Board and CODC approval.
Last November, the project received funding of $25,000 from Tu Manawa Active Aotearoa Fund. This was secured from an application by Cromwell Connect, who lead the initiative.
Cromwell Connect is a non-for-profit organisation that helps community groups connect with each other and get their projects going to benefit everyone.
Georgie Affleck, Community Facilitator for Cromwell Connect, says, “The Disc Golf is going so well. Cromwell Connect as been delighted with the overwhelmingly positive response to the new disc golf course at Anderson Park.”
Full signage will be installed in April and a formal opening will be held in May.
The map below is a draft and will be slightly different but the course is set out as below.
Meanwhile, disc golf is live and in action. Paper Plus have a good supply of discs available.
Georgie is keen to point our that care need to be taken, especially on Tee 6, as it is close to a footpath. She warns, “Remember, never throw a disc if people are passing – Safety First.”
The Cromwell Community have taken full advantage of it being open over the Otago Anniversary weekend which coincided with Neighbourhood Day Aotearoa week. Cromwell Connect would love to receive photos of the community using the course.
Georgie says, “It was so cool to see neighbours and friends out there enjoying the course. This is a great outcome for Cromwell.”
