CHEENGZ, in a Private Public Partnership with Prodigy Discs and the City of Austell, has just awarded a Municipal Grant for Disc Golf in Public Parks to Frog Rock Disc Golf Course located at Louise Suggs Memorial Park in Austell, GA.
Frog Rock DGC was designed by John Ritger as an 18 hole 900 Rated Par 55 Course with Blue (Pro) Tee Pads and Red (Recreational) Tee Pads on each hole. The course had 3 pin placements per hole and Mach III baskets that rotated periodically between A, B, and C pin positions throughout the year.
The City of Austell approached CHEENGZ in 2018 asking how to improve the course to get more community involvement. After consultation with Greg Campbell PDGA #12968, Jim Akins PDGA #2498, Tom Monroe PDGA #033, Joe Costa PDGA #5195, and Martin Young PDGA #27853 a proposal to add 18 Blue Prodigy T2 Targets to extra pin positions on each hole along with a grant of $1,850.00 was presented to the City of Austell.
On March 4th, 2019 The City of Austell approved the purchase of the baskets and the installation was completed on 4-11-19.
The original course designed by John Ritger now features 4 parallel courses that include a Pro Par 55 Course from Blue Tee Pads to the Blue Targets in the longest/most difficult pin positions, and three recreational courses from Blue to Red, Red to Red, and Red to Blue options.
Frog Rock Disc Golf Course is located 1/2 mile from Thornton Road on 278 in Austell, Ga at Louise Suggs Memorial Park.
