SPIRE Institute & Academy and Shoot The Breeze Disc Golf Club have agreed to partner to develop an 18-hole disc golf course on the professional training and competition complex’s sports academy campus in Geneva, Ohio.
SPIRE is a sports academy and boarding school with one of the largest indoor, multi-sport, training and competition complexes in the world. With more than 750,000 sq. ft. under roof and acres of outdoor facilities, SPIRE has the unique capacity to simultaneously host clubs, leagues, tournaments and championships.
Shoot The Breeze Disc Golf Club is dedicated to the growth of the professionally sanctioned sport of disc golf. The club currently has a course in Ashtabula Township with a partnership with Lake Shore Park. The Club runs an annual professionally sanctioned tournament on the first weekend in June, two additional charitable tournaments, and weekly leagues.
Disc golf is an easy-to-learn, healthy activity that is accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels. Instead of clubs and balls, players use specially-designed flying discs to aim and throw at elevated metal baskets, which take the place of holes on a traditional golf course. The object is to complete the course in the fewest number of throws.
There are over 8,000 courses around the world. Each year, millions of people play disc golf both recreationally and competitively. Visit the Professional Disc Golf Association’s website (www.pd,ga.com) to learn more about the increasingly popular sport of disc golf.
Layout of the course is underway and is expected to be complete in the spring, and a schedule of events and tournaments will be developed and published by the summer of 2021. The course will be open to the public free of charge.
