Disc Golf Course Under Buckwalter Rec Center’s Master Plan Proposals

A disc golf course is one of several proposed additions to Buckwalter Recreation Center’s master plan.

Bluffton and Beaufort County are seeking city approval to amend the plan with the following changes:

• Reduce the number of new football fields on the north side of the center from three to two.

• Remove plans for a sports pavilion near the existing football fields.

• Replacement of three proposed baseball fields, a press box and concession facilities with two new football fields.

• Adding a new maintenance building.

• Adding a disc golf course along Buckwalter Parkway, north of Barton’s Run Crossing.

The City Council will vote on the changes at its next meeting. The Bluffton Planning Commission last month recommended that the council approve them.

The disc golf course would be the first in Bluffton, according to the UDisc app’s course database. Other Lowcountry courses include one in Hardeeville’s Sergeant Jasper Park, two on Hilton Head Island, and one in Beaufort.

The Buckwalter course would be nine holes and include a shade pavilion, according to the proposed master plan.
