KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Knoxville city officials opened a new youth disc golf course Monday at Inskip Park.

The course was designed for ages 8 to 12 to try the sport and gain skills, but it is open to all ages and skill levels.

The course includes nine baskets with two tee pads per basket, giving various skill level options and doubling the course length. The Parks and Recreation Department was approached by the Knoxville Disc Golf Association last year about the need for a course geared for younger players.

The course was designed by Barge Waggoner Sumner & Cannon, Inc., and construction was led by the CAC AmeriCorps Conservation Crew with assistance from the City’s Public Service Department.

The total cost of the project was about $17,000. The course is free to use and open to the public during regular park hours.

Inskip Park is located at 4204 Bruhin Road.
