Rockford University features a 19 hole disc golf course open to the campus and the Rockford community. The disc golf course was completed and opened during the Spring of 2012. There was a Disc Golf Club started that helped spearhead the project led by Robert “Bobby” Tassone ’13. The Club also worked with the Student Government Association and Brad Knotts, Dean of Students. They received a grant to build the course, and after some controversy over its construction and when the holes would be placed, it was completed.
The course continues to be a unique staple on campus. Students and guests are able to come and play on their own or join tournaments that are hosted throughout the year.
