Disc golf is alive in the east coast of Canada. Three of the eastern provinces were represented this weekend in Amherst, Nova Scotia. Sub-freezing temperatures and the threat of snow were no match for north-of-the-border disc golfers. Most of the golfers crammed 54 holes in to cap off a successful day of disc golf in a new territory. The new course (Gogans Greens') is the first basket course east of Montreal, and the first disc golf course of any kind in Nova Scotia. A local club was also established to further the development of disc golf in the area.
Plans are in motion to hold a 'memorial day' disc golf tournament to celebrate these firsts and to encourage growth in the maritime provinces.
