For more than 80 years, Easter Seals has helped people with disabilities in communities nationwide. BADCO members have been working with Easter Seals of Colorado on the installation of an 18 hole private disc golf course at their camp in Empire, Colorado.
On Saturday, Ronnie Ross, Brett Marshall, Tim Panis and Jeff Panis drove to the camp to work on the final layout of the course. For wheelchair players there will be a (minimum) 3-hole layout in the meadow of the camp that is accessible on asphalt paths. A more challenging 18-hole course will cover a small portion of the over 100 acres of the property.
On several visits, Ronnie and Brett have surveyed the available land with camp administrators and are close in establishing the final layout of the 18-hole course.
The course is private and for the use of the Easter Seals Camp members only. There may be opportunities in the future where BADCO will host club only events.
BADCO is working with local disc golf vendors to get equipment together for the course. Stay tuned to BADCO news for future updates of the course
