Eagle Scout project makes disc golf course possible – News – The Daily Telegram – Adrian, MI


Coldwater Recreation has a new, nine-hole disc golf course at Heritage Park thanks to Boy Scout Carson Perz.

With snow covering the course, it was dedicated and officially opened Thursday. Laid out along the hillside and lakeshore, City Recreation Director Julie Santure said a course for the popular sport was discussed before she came in 2011.

A year ago, Perz came to Santure asking if he could do the disc course for his Eagle Scout project.

“Every time we tried to push it forward, other projects came up,” Santure said. “With Carson’s effort, it was finally done.”

In 2014, Aaron Gabrielse and Tyler Labo designed an 18-hole course. As the baseball/softball complex expanded, the course was cut to nine holes.

Perz received donations from 19 people or businesses whose names are listed on the course layout sign. Many were on hand with friends, family and city staff.

Each hole has a sponsor: Coldwater Recreation, ProMedica, CBPU, Kiwanis, Noon Rotary, the Albright family, Michigan Graphic Arts, and Gerry and Fran Hage, Perz’s grandparents.

Perz’s grandfather worked with him to construct the course in August.

The city engineering worked on the layout and municipal services moved one hole late in the project. Michigan Graphic Art did design for the signs.

Santure thanked Mayor Tom Kramer and the council for making recreation important in the community.

“This just another great avenue for people to remain active,” she said.
