Twin Lakes Charity Disc Golf and Music Festival 2017 ... supporting The Royal/DIFD and The Ottawa Food Bank

The Ottawa Disc Golf Club has been active since 1998.  One of their charities has always been the Ottawa Food Bank. As I am lucky to live in and own access to a private parkland setting with two lakes, an ideal setting for a pop-up disc golf course, I saw an opportunity to create an event that combined my passion for Mental Health and Disc Golf, a sport that I have enjoyed for 20 years. So with that and the help of avid disc golfer Don Lane, Twin Lakes began on October 29, 2016. Year 2 featured a new twist, a stage was set up and an open mic music festival was added to entertain the participants. It was well received. In 2018, the plan is to bring more music and Ultimate frisbee to the event so we can raise even more funds and create awareness for these important charities. Join us.

 After a great day on October 21, 2017, the sun has set on the 2nd annual Twin Lakes Disc Golf Tournament where this year we added an open mic music festival component that featured over a dozen songwriters and performers.. Join us next year 2018 for another great day of music and disc sport fun supporting The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre, DIFD, and the Ottawa Food Bank. These three important charities are supporting  countless people in need as well as our ongoing efforts in helping bring us all towards a brighter and healthier future.

 Twin Lakes Fall Splendour: The beauty of disc golf is that it very often shapes the course to existing features and the natural environment. Designers are always trying to tread lightly on the landscape and hopefully find a balance that will help players feel more fully integrated into and surrounded by the best in nature. Yay! :)
