Great activity for all ages!

The disc golf course is up and ready for players to enjoy at Liberty Lake!! Ringgold County Conservation is excited to provide this new recreational option for Ringgold County citizens and visitors!!

The par signage is in production and until those signs are available, we have numbered the posts at each launch site for usage. Launch pads will be installed shortly!

We would like to thank the HELP Youth Pod for their funding and persistence in getting Ringgold County a disc golf course. They funded this grant many years ago to another entity and that location didn't work out, so they held on to that dream and it has finally come to fruition!!

We would also like to thank the 5-2-1-0 Grant through Iowa's Healthiest State Initiative for grant funding for this project to improve and increase physical activity opportunities in Ringgold County!

We'd also like to thank Joe Hoepker with the SW Iowa Disc Golf Course group for volunteering his time to help us provide a fun and exciting course layout!!

To our knowledge there is NO official livestream of the Raiderette State Softball game tonight.

We have received multiple invites to "co-host" a livestream from suspect links.

Please research the link and make an informed decision at your own risk.

Some of these sites ask for credit card information, which can be an easy scam.
