Disc golf involves throwing a Frisbee-like disc through a series of baskets.

The council also plans to add foot golf to the park – golf played with feet and footballs and larger holes, rather than clubs and golf balls.

The new routes are expected to attract 6,000 to 10,000 additional visits per year to the park.

Earl Andy Burgin, the council’s portfolio holder for environment and recreation, said: “The course is a fantastic addition to the facilities at King George V Park.

“It fits with the council’s aim to encourage people to take up more physical activity and sport and to increase the number of visitors to the area.”

The disc golf and pitch and putt courses are open on weekdays, except public holidays, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Rounds cost £5 for adults and £2.50 for children and OAPs. To book a game call 01623 463463.
