Renovation carried out on the Rendezvous Park disc golf course in West Fargo

WEST FARGO, ND (KVRR) – The West Fargo Park District has renovated its disc golf course, providing more space for players.

“We knew we really wanted to have a good pace throughout the course, so you start and end in the same place for parking and everything. Just the way the layout worked to try and give disc golf its own separate area from the hockey arena and the basketball and softball courts to keep them in their place,” said Micah Fraase, West Fargo Parks District Foreman.

Rendezvous Park offers disc golfers their own space away from other areas of the park. They can either play a standard 18-hole game or play a smaller round. Both options will see players end up near the parking lot.

“You also have the option of playing nine if you’re not looking to stretch and go all 18 holes, which is a neat aspect. You can go from hole five all the way to 15 and kind of keep it in the Rendezvous Park instead of Rendezvous Road,” Fraase said.

Fraase says he thinks hole eight could be North Dakota’s longest hole at more than 1,000 feet long.

He is excited to see more avid gamers from the FM region trying their hand at West Fargo Park.

“I think it’s always important to allow people to get out and move around. Disc golf, as we talked about earlier, is obviously starting to explode and become a bigger thing. To have a park of this size, add another element to it. I think it was key for us to really create a new course and make it more popular with people here,” Fraase said.

It has exploded in popularity since the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Disc golf is taking the world by storm. At Rendezvous Park, the renovated course looks brand new and could host tournaments in West Fargo.

“The Cass-Clay Disc Golf Club has met with us a few times and talked to us about this possibility. We would be on board for that. It would be exciting to bring people here to the new course and let them see it. The next step we hope to maybe get some concrete tee boxes and plant some more trees, maybe some natural grasses and some other obstacles to make the road a bit more difficult,” Fraase said.

Fraase says the next step is to build more concrete tees to make the course more official for the tournament.
