Hinds CC’s Vicksburg-Warren Campus opens disc golf course

Vicksburg-Warren Campus PTK students gather around the new disc golf course. From left, Joshua Masterson, Haley Harmon, Tiffany Carroll and Thomas Dabney.

The Vicksburg-Warren Campus of Hinds Community College celebrated the grand opening of a disc golf course Nov. 11.

The new addition to the campus was the brain child of several administrators and students. Rip Engler, assistant dean of the Vicksburg-Warren Campus, came up with the idea several years ago, but wasn’t able to find the resources needed to get it going. Recently, Marvin Moak, the new dean of the campus, Mark Stanton, district director of student activities, and Dr. Sarah Nichols, Phi Theta Kappa advisor, along with several PTK students, took the time and energy to make Engler’s idea a reality.

“I am excited about the disc golf course because it’s a successful completion of our PTK project, and also because it’s going to give me something to do between classes,” said student Tiffany Carroll of Vicksburg. “I usually go home between classes because there’s nothing going on. But now I’ll be challenged to learn something new and also have an opportunity to socialize with friends.”

The Vicksburg-Warren Campus’ disc golf course is only one of two courses in all of Vicksburg, and is the only public course. Anyone from the community is welcomed to use it. The course opens at dawn and closes at dusk.

“We hope this will bring more visitors to campus to see what the college has to offer,” said Stanton. “We plan to hold a disc golf intramural tournament here in the spring, as well.”
