The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
From the Outsiders News letter!
Our newly re-constructed disc golf course gets its official name after over ten years of discussions, meetings, hard work and perseverance!
Press Release (11/30/10):
On Monday November 29th, the Bidwell Park and Playground Commission officially named the highway 32 disc golf area. The 40 acre site was purchased from the Bureau of Land Management in 1994-5, along with 1300 acres of private property,
and has been the topic of much community discussion. This is the first component of the 1994-5 expansion of Bidwell Park to receive a formal name.
The BLM property was more formally added to Bidwell Park in 2008 with the completion of the Bidwell Park Master Management Plan update. Since that time the pre-existing recreation of disc golf has been modified and realigned to avoid environmentally sensitive areas. The newly aligned recreation component is expected to open to
the public soon.
The commission named the site the Peregrine Point Trailhead and Disc Golf Facility. The site is named after the Peregrine falcons that can be seen hunting among tree tops in Bidwell Park's Iron Canyon, below the cliff top locale. The name was originally
suggested by the Chico Outsiders who are building the disc golf facilities. "The intricate and skilled flight of the falcon is something we wish we could emulate with our golf discs, and the Peregrine is an appropriate symbol for this lofty park perch" said Lon Glazner, president of the Chico Outsiders.
Peregrine Point tee-shirts and golf discs supporting the new disc golf facility may be purchased from the Chico Outsiders online, or via the contact below.
