COURTENAY, B.C – Lake Trail Middle School has partnered with Comox Valley Disc Golf Club to install a 12-hole disc golf course.

The course will be installed throughout the forest off Lake Trail Road near the school.

The project was started by teachers Jeff Hoy and Tim Horner with the help of the school Parent Advisory Council.

Horner says the initiative will be great for both students and residents.

“This initiative not only provides an opportunity for year-round outdoor physical education, but it also creates a space for students to embrace stewardship of their immediate surroundings.”

The course is part of a larger project installation that includes an outdoor training course along the outside of the upper field next to the school.

The Lake Trail course becomes the fourth in the Comox Valley to be installed by CVDGC.
