City of Carrollton Accepts Lions Club Donation of New Disc Golf Baskets
Carrollton City officials and staff members accepted a donation of 18 new disc golf baskets from the Carrollton Evening Lions Club (CELC) at a tournament on Saturday, June 24.
The updated baskets were installed at the 18-hole Greenbelt Disc Golf Park, a recreation area nestled inside 41 acres of greenway and part of the Furneaux Creek Orange Trail. In honor of the CELC’s centennial celebration, the baskets were presented to the City and inaugurated during the CELC’s annual Carrollton Disc Golf Open, a tournament that attracted both professional and amateur players.
“We want to thank the CELC for this generous donation,” said Carrollton Parks and Recreation Director Scott Whitaker. “These baskets will help improve gameplay and increase competitiveness for the many disc golfers in the City and surrounding areas.”
Carrollton Mayor Kevin Falconer, Councilmembers Frances Cruz, John Sutter, and Young Sung, along with Whitaker were on hand during the tournament’s opening ceremony which also included the unveiling of a commemorative plaque, placed near the hole one marker of the course.
