Disc golf returns to Pocono Raceway

Folks looking to try something new this weekend can participate in the Pocono Raceway Disc Golf Experience.

MONROE COUNTY, Pa. — Starting Friday, Pocono Raceway near Long Pond is home to the Pocono Raceway Disc Golf Experience.

This is the first time the event is back at the raceway since the pandemic; during that time, organizers say a lot of people started practicing their swings.

"Gave people something to do outside. Disc golfs has been going on since the late 70s down in California. Philadelphia actually has the second oldest course in Sedgley Woods from 77. but locally here in Northeast PA, there are courses at Hickory state park, Tunkcannock, Prompton Dam," said Michael Solt, organizer.

The disc golf tournament continues Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Monroe County.
