STEWARTVILLE, Minn. — There’s always a first time for everything and, for some, Saturday was their first go at playing disc golf.
A disc golf tournament debuted at Stewartville Summerfest on Saturday, July 2, 2022, after the work of organizer Scott Boelman, who said he had about a month to throw the event together.
One family, the Burmans, drove from Rochester to Bear Cave Park with three rookie disc golf players. Parents Mindy and Mike had played a couple of times before, but “not anything competitive,” Mindy said. With them were their kids, 13-year-old Aidan and 11-year-old Sophia, and a friend, 13-year-old Owen Lent.
“It’s just something fun to do with them,” Mindy said.
Though it was their first time playing, Aidan, Sophia and Owen said they enjoyed playing.
“Yeah, I’d probably (play again),” Owen said. “Something to do in the day.”
The experience didn’t come without some hiccups though, like the times the disc went awry into a cluster of trees. Or the time Sophia’s disc flew too high and landed high in a branch. Or when a few Frisbees ended up in the bottom of a ravine off hole nine.
