Disc golf dedication

Disc dedication

A group of disc golf enthusiasts gathered Thursday evening at Jackson Park to recognize and dedicate a new sign featuring the names of those who were instrumental in creating the 18-hole, par three course, then played disc golf until dark. Danville City Commissioner Rick Serres was on hand to talk about each of the men named on the sign: Stuart Arnold is credited with being the “inspiration” for the course; Josh Morgan is credited for design of the north nine holes; Anthony Isaacs is credited for the first organized disc golf club; and the late Todd Kleffman is credited for design of the south nine holes.
