A new nine-hole disc golf course is now open to the public at Pellissippi State Community College.

The course is at the Hardin Valley campus, located at 10915 Hardin Valley Road, and is open from sunrise to sunset. There is no cost to enjoy the course.

"Our new disc golf course is an expansion of our recreational facilities at Pellissippi State and a wonderful addition to our campus," said Philip Ems, manager of Pellissippi State's Student Recreation Center. "We are proud to have such a wonderful course for our students and community, and we are excited to join the disc golf community of East Tennessee."

Pellissippi students can check our discs at the Student Recreation Center, but the public should bring their own.

"The course is challenging and exciting, presenting a number of formidable shots, from navigating tight tee shots to subtle but difficult elevation changes. And of course, the three-hole tour around our pond is one of the most exciting three-hole stretches in disc golf," said Ems.
