Rimrock gone, may reappear elsewhere
From a Bend Bulletin article
Prineville disc golf, past and present
The Rimrock Disc Golf Course in Prineville was removed last spring, but the Crook County Parks & Recreation District is working to relocate the course to a better spot, district Director Maureen Crawford said Tuesday.
Perched along the Crooked River, Rimrock was known as a difficult course where water hazards and overgrown brush caused more than a few lost discs. Also, two of its tee boxes flooded often and had to be repaired repeatedly.
As a result, the course was not used as much as district officials would have liked. So when the district needed a spot for a new youth fishing pond in the spring, the course was taken out.
Now, Crawford is working with the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department to lease state-owned land along the state Highway 126 grade west of Prineville to be the new home of the disc golf course. Plans include nine holes at first, but room for an additional nine (which have already been designed), plus a small playground, Crawford said.
The project is currently caught up in paperwork, but Crawford hopes to open the new course in the spring of next year.
