Service: The Mobile Disc Golf Experience
Location: Dolce Norwalk
City: Norwalk, CT
The Big Idea for The Big Idea for The Mobile Disc Golf Experience at Dolce Norwalk was to move users to significant on-site features while providing the infrastructure for a positive first time experience for the Leadership Team of ISG in Stamford, CT as they played the course as a team building activity during their weekend company retreat.
Our firm was contracted to design/install 9 holes of disc golf and provide a clinic to members of ISG’s Leadership Team during their afternoon activity time. The Leadership Team broke into twosomes, and played an 18-hole scramble format with winner’s receiving custom dyed discs as prizes. Overall, the experience from each player was extremely positive as Dolce Norwalk’s facility provided a perfect opportunity for a beginner-friendly disc golf course.
While many of the holes were 150′-200′ in length, the property featured large changes in elevation, specimen trees and stone structures around every turn. The layout provided players with several ace-run opportunities, like the 9th hole where the basket was located in an old stone alter that provided a backboard for well thrown discs to deflect back into the basket. Many good times were had on this hole, as players scores varied from hole-in-one excitement to double bogeys or worse for those who went too long.
All told, this was an incredible experience and the course was very well received. Explore Disc Golf has provided disc golf to several company retreats over the years, as this form of passive recreation is a wonderful platform for team building.
