Three years of work will culminate in the grand opening of Belle Isle's disc golf course tomorrow, Model D reports.

After many volunteer clean-ups, tournaments, and discussions with the state, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources has given Detroit Disc Golf the go-ahead to open Belle Isle Disc Golf Course for daily operations. The first 18 hole disc golf course in Detroit opens at 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 12.

The 18-hole course, which is situated across from the Detroit Yacht Club, will be open through Halloween. Hours are noon to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, Model D says. No price has been set, but organizers tell Model D it'll likely be less than $5 per day's worth of play.
