Disc Golf Course Closed For Maintenance

Williamson County has closed its disc golf course for site maintenance until approximately mid-October. The course, located at the Williamson County Southwest Regional Park, 3005 C.R. 175 in Leander, is in a natural area of the park that is heavily treed. Due to the drought, many trees have died, which poses a safety hazard for disc golfers due to falling limbs.
“Our primary focus is providing safe places for people to recreate, so we are closing the disc golf course until we can do the maintenance necessary to restore it to a safe condition,” stated Randy Bell, Williamson County parks and recreation director.
Mr. Bell anticipates it will take approximately six months to remove the dead trees and evaluate and maintain the healthy trees.
“We apologize for the inconvenience this causes our disc golfers, but we hope they will take advantage of the other great disc golf courses that are located in the county during this time,” said Mr. Bell.
