Business Students open Disc Golf Course on DC Campus

May 1,2012

 

DEFIANCE, Ohio – The Defiance College Business Advantage Student Advisory Board (BASAB) has announced the addition of a Disc Golf course to the campus. Recently opened, the nine-hole disc golf course is available to the campus.

The DC Disc Golf course, known as Jacket Woods, winds throughout the campus and offers a scenic view as players walk the course. It has nine holes, or baskets, and a place to tee off, just like golf. The object of the game is to throw a flying disc at the basket in the fewest number of throws.

Modern disc golf started in the early 60’s and has been a rising trend, with around 3,000 courses in the US. It is a fun, interactive sport that is great for the entire family.

Disc Golf is being run by the Business Advantage program, a student group focused on “bringing textbooks to life.” The goal of creating this project is for students to be interactive with business opportunities and gain real-world business experience backed up by solid academic understanding.

For more information, contact Josh Beaverson, a senior business administration major and BASAB president or Jay Page, assistant professor of marketing and BASAB advisor, at BASAB@defiance.edu.

The Business Advantage program is offered to students majoring or interested in the field of business. Students work together to create and run businesses and provide services for the community and DC campus using the academic knowledge they are learning in the classroom. By bringing textbooks to life, students are able to understand what it takes to develop and manage a business.
