Bedford County welcomes Disc Golf Course to New London Technology Center
The Bedford County Parks and Recreation Department (BCPRD), in cooperation with the Bedford County Economic Development Authority (EDA), is pleased to announce a ribbon cutting for the newly constructed Championship Disc Golf course at the New London Business and Technology Center park on Friday, April 9, at 10 a.m. Five-Time Disc Golf World Champion and Bedford County resident, Paul McBeth designed the course and will be the honored guest to officially open the 18-hole pro course to the public.
The ribbon cutting will be held at Trail Head 1, located just beyond the roundabout, at the end of Meade Rd. The 18-hole course spans roughly two miles weaving throughout wooded and green areas in the business park. The course will boast custom-made Paul McBeth Signature Series Baskets, a “first of its kind” for McBeth and Bedford County. The custom baskets will be exclusive only to courses that McBeth has helped to design, with Bedford County being the first.
The course was designed and constructed through the dedicated work of BCPRD staff members and community volunteers, and 20 businesses or community partners that provided funds through hole sponsorships.
The addition of the course adds more recreation to the industrial park which also is home to New London Tech Trail, a seven-mile wooded trail created for biking, running, and walking.
