Pocono Bike Rental Sponsors Fundraisers for 2 Disc Golf courses in the Poconos
The disc golf mecca as it is locally known is White Haven, PA. With 4 courses within a 10 mile radius we are quite lucky to have ourselves some amazing vistas to play disc golf at. This is the time of year for spring cleanup and maintenance of these courses and this weekend there is 2 fundraisers happening at the Linesville Park Disc Golf Course just blocks from downtown and the Francis E. Walter Dam Course(s) to help offset some of these annual costs.
Pocono Bike Rental is proud to sponsor both events this weekend. All entrants to both events will receive a free bike rental valid during the 2015 season. Pocono Bike Rental rents high quality mountain bikes for use on the world famous Lehigh River Gorge Rail Trail System. Pocono Bike Rental also sells discs both new, used and new local course fundraiser plastic. You can also rent discs and bags for day play in the local area. Disc Golf Shuttles are available for additional fees to the local courses and for bikers to Glen Summit, Rockport and Jim Thorpe.
Brian Hoch from White Haven had the vision to build a disc golf course near the baseball fields on the edge of town. He carefully planned it out, got the funding through grant money and within a dedicated couple of years we now have 18 holes of brand new baskets, bridge over water, concrete tee boxes and golf bag holders on many holes. So he and Jonathon Meehan got together and are having a PDGA C-Tier Event that has a special event status for fundraising which allows non-PDGA members to play without any extra fees. This event to be held today is for Linesville and is the 1st annual. Tomorrow’s event at the “Dam” is not a PDGA event but is a fundraiser for the 2 courses there and is historically the annual event is named “Do it for the Dam”. Tom Williams the owner of Pocono Bike Rental and an avid disc golfer is grateful for the opportunity to sponsor these two great annual events.
