The Clinton County Youth Council is hosting the second annual Make a Difference Day disc golf tournament Saturday at the CCYC Disc Golf Course, 302 W. Sugartree St. on the grounds of the CCYC after-school youth center.

Registration will begin Saturday at 1 p.m. First round tee-off is scheduled for 1:30 p.m., according to CCYC director Eric Guindon.

Divisions are available for all levels of play including juniors and beginners. Registration is $20 for all adults and free for students. Prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers in each division. Registration is available online at facebook.com/ccycdiscgolf.

Disc golf follows the rules of traditional ball golf, with the difference of a flying disc replacing a golf ball and clubs. A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to a target (a suspended metal basket) which is the “hole.”

The CCYC Disc Golf Course was established in 2015 through a donation from Alkermes. The course design snakes and traverses a partially wooded layout throughout the five-acre campus that has direct access to the Luther Warren Peace Path. The course is maintained by students and volunteers, with support from Ewing Tree Service.
