KREBS — If the homemade look of the Eagle Hills Disc Golf Course behind the His Place Community Center in Krebs has been the main reason you haven’t checked it out, fear not. Thanks to fundraising efforts by the course’s disc golf club, several changes should soon transform the course into something even professional disc golfers would enjoy spending a day at.
The biggest change will be the baskets disc golfers must “putt” into to finish an individual hole. Up until now, players have made due with large blue plastic pins donated by club member Josh Meyers as an Eagle Scout project. Those bins will be replaced by shiny new baskets made from galvanized steel, according to a club press release Tuesday, as soon as the club can get to Texas to pick them up.
“The new goals will make it easier to score, as course regulars can attest,” the release said. “The original home-built goals are not as forgiving as commercial ones.”
