(LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga., - April 19, 2010) Gwinnett County Parks & Recreation recognizes the volunteer efforts of Gwinnett Disc Golf Organization (GDGO) during National Volunteer week.
GDGO partners with Gwinnett County Parks & Recreation to expand disc golf recreation opportunities in Gwinnett County. GDGO members have freely given numerous hours to expand the sport of Disc Golf in the county park system. Members raised funds to donate 19 replacement disc golf baskets at Lenora Park, 36 sets of replacement chains for disc golf baskets, practice basket, benches, brooms and more.
Volunteers have become a valuable asset to Gwinnet County’s park system, dedicating over 5,000 hours of their time in the past five years to improve course layout and provide disc golf lessons to novice players.
In addition to introducing new players to the game, these volunteers go above and beyond to assist staff in hosting Disc Golf tournaments to support a scholarship fund, built an informational kiosk and stay abreast of new developments in disc golf in order to keep Gwinnett’s disc golf community ahead of the trends.
The volunteers also assist with course maintenance by moving pin placements bi-weekly, installing distance markers for practice baskets, completing weekly safety checks, replacing brooms and other equipment, installing benches, broom holders and tee boxes.
For more information on Gwinnett County Parks & Recreation’s Disc Golf courses or volunteering with Gwinnett County Parks & Recreation, contact the Volunteer Resource Coordinator at 770-418-2331 or visit http://www.gwinnettparks.com.
