Scott Reinert, left, and Chuck Moore, who both played a key role in the creation of a new disc golf park in South Haven, are shown holding the sign that will be placed at the entrance of the park, on 14th Avenue, just east of Blue Star Highway. The course is located at the site of the 40-acre site owned by South Haven Area Recreational Authority for the future construction of a recreational park for youth sports.

SOUTH HAVEN — Seven years ago Chuck Moore noticed his kids and grandkids playing an outdoor game he had never really seen nor heard of before – disc golf.

“It looked like a lot of fun, and it was starting to catch on with people,” said Moore.
