Disc golf course closed during construction

ROSEBURG, Ore. - The disc golf course at Whistler's Bend Park will be closed to the public starting Wednesday.

Greg Logan with the Douglas County Parks Department says they are closing the course while construction for a new campground begins.

Disc golf tournaments already scheduled during the closure will still be held.

Logan says they have a projected completion date of October of this year for the campground.

"The campgrounds actually goes through a portion of the disc golf course, so some of the disc golf holes have to be moved in order to accommodate the new campground," he said.
