Indiana: Salamonie Lake hosts disc golf open house

Find your friends, family, and flying discs and head to Salamonie Lake for an open house celebrating the park’s newest feature: a nine-hole, par-three disc golf course.

The open house will be on Aug. 24 from 2 to 4 p.m. People who register during those hours and play at least one hole will be entered for a prize, the winner of which will be drawn at 4 p.m. The new disc golf course is located next to Pear Grove shelter in Lost Bridge West SRA. Registration is free.

The disc golf course is open now for people to play and will remain open year-round, from dawn to dusk.

“Outdoor recreation is something we promote,” said Salamonie Lake property manager Ronnie Hileman. “Disc golf is a growing sport and a great family activity.”

There will be a cornhole tournament with a $5 registration from 3 to 5 p.m., with registration beginning at 2:45 p.m., at the wildlife management pond. Sweet corn on the cob will also be available for purchase in two forms: in the husk, hot off the grill and ready to eat, or ready to cook at home. Kettle corn will also be available.

Games for kids will be offered from 3 to 5 p.m. at the pond shelter area.

Property entrance fees apply: $7 per in-state vehicle; $9 per out-of-state vehicle.

Upper Wabash Interpretive Services (dnr.IN.gov/uwis) is at 3691 New Holland Road, Andrews, 46702.
