18 MACH 7 BASKETS AND COURSE GROWTH ON THE WAY TO MICHIGAN
The Silver Creek Disc Golf Course in Marquette, MI has won the 2022 DGA RePlay Course Growth Program! As a part of this program, DGA will be providing them with 18 Mach 7 Baskets to replace their current Chainstars. Silver Creek will use these upcycled baskets to create two 9-hole courses at local schools.
“We are overjoyed to be recipients of the DGA RePlay program! We have an incredible disc golf oasis here in Marquette MI, with so many local schools and public parks looking to add disc golf for their communities, but just lacking the funds. The RePlay course growth program is a HUGE jumpstart to helping them out, and we at the UPDGA wholeheartedly appreciate the opportunity to receive these new baskets and help to truly grow the sport by passing along a wonderful disc golf tradition.
Thank you DGA!”Tim Kopacz, Silver Creek DGC Representative
Silver Creek Disc Golf Course
Silver Creek Disc Golf Course is a beloved destination for locals and visitors alike. Its popularity is due in large part to its convenient location near neighborhoods making it easily accessible for those seeking outdoor recreation.
The course offers a unique respite from the summer heat. Situated near the cool waters of Lake Superior, Silver Creek provides a refreshing escape from the sweltering temperatures that can plague the region during the warmer months.
Of the 18 holes on the course, 17 are fully wooded, providing a challenging and exciting experience for players of all skill levels. The lush trees and foliage not only add to the beauty of the course, but also create a natural obstacle course that requires precision and strategy to navigate.
Overall, the Silver Creek Disc Golf Course is a gem of the community, offering a unique and refreshing outdoor experience for those seeking adventure and recreation.
“Super cool layout! Multiple pin placements. Mostly woods and tight fairways. Great course”Online Review
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE EXISTING BASKETS?
18 Championship DGA Mach 7s will be installed at Silver Creek Disc Golf Course, and their existing Discraft Chainstars will be upcycled to two local schools.
- 9 baskets installed at Marquette Senior High School
- 9 baskets installed at Republic-Michigamme Schools
What’s the DGA Mach 7?
The DGA Mach 7 provides the added visibility of a band without the unwanted distraction and unpleasant “clanks.” The Mach 7’s shielded Visibility Ring allows you to focus on the catching zone rather than outside of it. You get peace of mind seeing your target while focusing on what really matters–making your putt.
