Rookery Run Disc Golf Course hosts first professional tournament
NEWBOLD - Disc golfers from all around the Midwest made their way to Newbold this weekend.

The Rookery Run Course hosted its first sanctioned professional tournament.

The new 18-hole course turned one-year old this month.

More than 50 golfers got the chance to play two rounds at Rookery Run.

Wisconsin native and professional golfer Terry Miller made his way north for the debut.

"This is validation, this is the time when people come from literally all over the state and sometimes all over the Midwest just to be here so I consider that validation for their hard work," Miller said.

Tournament Director Mike Cozzens stepped away from his own course in Lac du Flambeau to help jump start the Newbold tournament possibilities.

He said disc golf course owners in the Northwoods want to make this area a prime destination.

"The more courses we get the more people start participating," Cozzens said.They hear about other courses and they are like 'oh that's a cool course we want to get up here'. It's just, we just are all looking out for everyone else."

Each player got a prize pack with new discs.  

Newbold Recreation Board Members Jackie and Pete Cody hope this is the first of many successful events at the Rookery Run.
