Troy Becomes Disc Golf Hub
The Prospect Park Disc Golf Course opened in Troy in August of 2020 after a group of disc golf enthusiasts gathered signatures, raised funds, and petitioned the city for a permit. Today, dozens of disc golfers flock to the course in all kinds of weather to play. HMM correspondent Corinne Carey spoke with Sam Wechsler and Jeff Daniels (pictured here)– two disc golfers who worked to get the course up and running — as well as disc golfers out on the course. Carey also spoke with the founder and proprietor of New York Disc Golf Supply, Heidi Williams, who opened her shop in downtown Troy after trying her hand on the course and finding there was no way to buy supplies from a store within a 100-mile radius.
