Local disc golf enthusiasts brought their plastic to an unusual spot Saturday — a course of nine “holes” inside the Staggering Ox — raising money for past and future improvements at the disc golf course in the South Hills.
The Sleeping Giant Disc Golf Association is still paying for the installation of tee pads and tournament-grade baskets at the course, which is on city land. More tee pads and baskets, as well as signage, are still to come for the course, off Cabernet Drive near the South Helena exit of Interstate 15.
About 35 people used miniature discs and baskets and raised about $1,200 in the tournament Saturday, according to association president Jason Schmidt.
He said he’s unaware of an indoor disc golf tournament anywhere else, but that an indoor fundraiser last year was a hit with the golfers.
“We had people basically begging us to do it again this year,” he said.
