Timpson Disc Golf was introduced by Councilman Kyle Allen when he first was elected to the Timpson City Council. Kyle was interested in bringing something fun and affordable to Timpson that would benefit both citizens and businesses. Kyle visited with Paul Smith and together they got the Timpson Area Chamber of Commerce, Timpson Economic Development Corporation, City of Timpson and many sponsors to take the idea from paper to park. The 9 basket, 18 tee course was designed by Craig Lewis.
We hope that you will join in the fun and become a disc golf enthusiastic. It’s good, clean, healthy fun and we have an amazing course right here in Timpson Texas.
