Meridian Disc Golf...Finally!
March 22, 2013 01:15PM
Meridian Parks and Rec have agreed and with the help of Lauderdale County have purchased 9 baskets to be installed at Highland Park. This will be the first course in Meridian and if all goes well they will add 9 more. They should start installation around the second week of April and are planning an official grand opening sometime towards the end of April.

It is just a 9 hole, but we hope this will be the start to getting multiple course here in town. We have been in talks with the city about other possible locations for other courses, but they will want to see if this 9 hole course was money well spent first.

It's not much but it's a start!

Jason, do you have the distances and pars for the first nine? Played 18 holes yesterday and the course is nice. The layout was incorporated into the park very well. Looking foreward to playing more with a course just down the road from my house!

Don't know about the pars, some holes are long to be just 3, but the distances were measured.

1- 300'
2- 186'
3- 390'
4- 378'
5- 294'
6- 288'
7- 330'
8- 375'
9- 330'
9a- 243'

This is the facebook page for the local club. Also let me know when you are going to play a round, I don't know many in Meridian that play.

Thanks for the info. I thought there would be a distance to par ratio regulation. I figured that they would be a "3" with the longest hole being 390'.

Just an update, hole #1 has been moved a little closer to the tee box. The new measurement is 270'.

Just want to add that there is a casual weekly round at Highland Park on Sundays starting at 2pm. Anybody is welcome, if your around or passing thru Meridian, stop in and check it out.

Well that would be helpful...I guess.

I-20/59 East to exit 150 towards MS-19 N/ Philadelphia. Head north on MS-19 for 1 mile to a right on 8th St. Continue for .8 miles to a left on 39th Ave. Follow 39th straight into the park.

First tee is between the parking lot and the pool, north side of the duck pond.

If you see this before you play, let me know what time, I'd like to meet you out there and play a round.
