The Echo Sunshine Club has organized a “try-it” session for its new disc golf course on Tuesday, July 5 at 10 a.m.

Dan Walker and Craig Dieno are the guest instructors for the session. They are also the BC Seniors Games disc golf co-ordinators for the zone that includes the Alberni Valley, and they designed the Sunshine Club course.

“We are calling the route the ‘Echo Woods Disc Golf Park’,” said Deb Barr of the city’s parks and recreation department.

Parks and Rec will have scorecards available at Echo Centre (complete with a map of the course printed on the reverse) by the beginning of July.

Discs will also be for sale for $11 each for anyone wishing to purchase their own equipment.

The scorecard and map will also be available on the city’s website, www.portalberni.ca, under the Parks and Recreation link.

For more information, please call Echo Centre at 250-723-2181.
