Work has started on the two temporary baskets at the Tye F. Cunningham Memorial Disc Golf Course and is expected to be completed within a month, said Earl London, interim Edmond Parks and Recreation director.
“They were in the way of the security fence,” London said. “They are being moved to the south toward the pond.”
J.L. Mitch Park, 1501 W Covell Road, is the home of Edmond's disc golf course.
“This has caused a problem for some of the die-hard players,” said Diane Self, parks and recreation program director. “There is always a group out there. It is very popular.”
Cunningham, who died in 2004 at age 29, was an avid fan of the sport and worked with Edmond officials to build Edmond's disc golf course.
“It was his idea, and he designed it,” London said. “This is one of those private/public deals. It was his labor and his expertise.”
