In 1969, George Sappenfield, Recreation Supervisor for Conejo Recreation and Park District, introduced a new game to many adults by planning the very first official Disc Golf Tournament. He used frisbees for throwing,and hula hoops as targets. Disc Golf was born in the Conejo Valley. Since then Disc golf has exploded with its own professional organization (www.PDGA.com) with nearly 40,000 members, tournaments worldwide, and courses across the world. Disc Golf comes home this spring with the grand opening of Rabbit Flats Disc Golf Course. The park is located on nine acres in Thousand Oaks Community Park.
There are 9 baskets for beginners and 18 for more advanced players playing from 9 tees through some challenging fairways. Designed by semi-pro, pro and amateur players the course is being built slowly using mostly volunteers, service clubs, Eagle Scouts and the local Disc Golfers. Disc Golf classes and tournaments are already planned for the summer. Come on out and Play!
