The Red River Waterway Commission started construction this month on a second disc golf course at Fort Buhlow Recreation Area near Pineville in Rapides Parish. The first 18-hole course completed there a year ago has been well used. The commission’s operations director Mike Boydstun said enthusiasm for the sport surprised him. It’s drawn new people to the recreation area.
“You wouldn’t expect them to be out there in the heat of the day this time of year, but we have a lot of people who just come all day long," Boydstun said.
