Cumberland Disc Golf Course opening

Grand opening celebrations Wednesday afternoon

  • Apr. 11, 2016 10:00 a.m.

Cumberland council and the Comox Valley Disc Golf Club will celebrate the grand opening of the new 18-hole Coal Creek Historic Park Disc Golf Course on Wednesday, April 13 at 5: 30 p.m. at hole No. 1.

Council entered into a memorandum of understanding with the Comox Valley Disc Golf Club in the summer of 2015 to work together on developing the course on a trial basis until the end of 2016.

A course assessment and evaluation will take place in the fall to identify any issues or concerns related to the operation of the course in the park.

The course is located just south of the historic Cumberland Chinatown site in Coal Creek Historic Park, located one kilometre west of the Village commercial core on Comox Lake Road. Hole No. 1 is located 300 metres south of the parking lot at Jumbo’s Cabin parking area.

Parking is limited onsite and visitors are encouraged to walk, hike or bike to the park by way of Dunsmuir Avenue west (Camp Road), Porky’s Path off Sutton Road, Mama Bear’s Trail of Tears in the Cumberland Community Forest, or Comox Lake Road. A trail map can be viewed at Cumberland Recreation or can be purchased at local bike shops.

A limited number of rental discs are available at the recreation centre for anyone looking to try out the sport. Call Cumberland Recreation at 250-336-2231 for more information.
