Pellissippi State Community College opened a nine-hole disc golf course at its Hardin Valley Campus yesterday, April 10 — and the course is open to the community.

The course is open from sunrise to sunset and is free to use. The course is located at 10915 Hardin Valley Road. The college’s campus also features a walking trail that connects to the Pellissippi Greenway.

“Our new disc golf course is an expansion of our recreational facilities at Pellissippi State and a wonderful addition to our campus,” said Philip Ems, manager of Pellissippi State’s Student Recreation Center. “We are proud to have such a wonderful course for our students and community, and we are excited to join the disc golf community of East Tennessee.”

“The course is challenging and exciting, presenting a number of formidable shots, from navigating tight tee shots to subtle but difficult elevation changes. And of course, the three-hole tour around our pond is one of the most exciting three-hole stretches in disc golf,” he added.

Community members should bring their own discs. Pellissippi State students may check out discs at the Student Recreation Center.

The course was designed by Daniel Boutte of boutteDESIGN and installed by Outdoor Designs Knoxville. Pellissippi State’s disc golf course is listed with the Professional Disc Golf Association.
