The Cobb Disc Golf Club in a nonprofit organization that supports disc golf in Cobb County, Georgia. We work with young and old alike to advance their skills and participation in the sport, and our current membership boasts a range of players from middle school age to retirement age. We organize local disc golf competitions at Oregon Park in Marietta, Georgia, and work with the Cobb County Parks and Recreation Department to maintain the disc golf course at the park.
We are also working with the parks and recreation department to expand the presence of disc golf courses in the county. In 2009, our club helped expand the Oregon Park course, the only disc golf course in Cobb County that is open to the public, from a 9-hole course to an 18-hole course. We are continuing this expansion in 2010 with plans to upgrade Oregon Park with a new layout, currently being designed by Kevin McCoy. We also have long-term plans to install a course at Pitner Road Park, also in West Cobb, on land that the county has set aside for disc golf.
The club organizes and hosts several annual tournaments at Oregon Park, including an "Ice Bowl" charity tournament in the Winter, a "Friends of the Park" fundraiser tournament in the Spring, and a late Summer "Ace Race." Each of these tournaments, especially the Ace Race, are growing in attendance every year.
In addition to these seasonal tournaments, the club hosts weekly random-draw doubles competitions on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, generally at 6pm. These events are held in the daylight during warm weather months, but the format changes to "glow doubles" with a later starting time when we lose the benefit of daylight savings time.
