Sheppard Air Force Base has a new activity for airmen and their families.
The official ribbon cutting for a new disc golf course at the Wind Creek Park on base took place Monday morning. A change in Department of Defense policy forced the closure of the golf course back in June.
Sheppard partnered up with the Wichita Falls Disc Golf Association to make the course possible. Organizers say this shows the constant support that Sheppard sees from the Wichita Falls community.

On Tuesday July 21, 2014 at 8:00am CDT the first discs will be thrown to start off one of the largest events in disc golf, the 2014 PDGA Amateur & Junior Disc Golf World Championships . The Minneapolis/St. Paul area is hosting the event this year with 620+ competitors in 14 different divisions playing on eight courses spread out over a period of five days. Whether you’re a player, a staff member, or a volunteer, your effort for the remainder of the week should be applauded. As a competitor, the amount of mental and physical endurance it takes to finish at the top of your division is unmatched by any other amateur event all year. As a staff member, the amount of work leading up to this event is mind-boggling, and it will only get more stressful and exhausting as the week goes on. When it’s all said and done, it will all be worth it. This is Am Worlds baby!
