The Tinderbox

A new disc golf course aimed at families, youth and the disc golf-curious is open at the Mason County (Mich.) Campground, according to the Ludington Daily News.

The course, called the Tinderbox, goes “around the campground itself,” said Ranger Tom Oele, adding that some holes are “literally a hop and a skip away” from campsites.

It should take 45 minutes to an hour to complete, with holes one-third to one-half the length of those at nearby courses, he said.

“It’s really downsizing the professional experience,” Oele said. “It just creates a faster pace, a shorter walking distance.”

The Tinderbox is just the latest addition to Mason County’s suite of disc golf courses, which Oele said is becoming a regional magnet, drawing in hundreds of tournament players and vacationers seeking “destination courses.”
