Great Schools Partnership partnered with community organizations, businesses and volunteers to create a public-accessible Wee Frisbee Golf Course at Sarah Moore Greene Magnet Academy Community School.
The 9-hole youth disc golf course opened at the school in November 2018. Families are invited to enjoy the new wee frisbee golf course located behind Sarah Moore Greene Magnet Academy Community School at 3001 Brooks Ave., Knoxville, TN. during after school hours. This is only the second Wee Frisbee Golf Course in Knox County. Wee frisbee golf courses are sized specifically for children.
“This new wee frisbee golf course is a perfect example of our Community Schools strategy working at its best,” said Stephanie Welch, Great Schools Partnership president. “Building stronger schools includes building stronger neighborhoods. We are so pleased with how this entire community stepped up to make this course happen, developed a positive use of this great space and created such an ideal opportunity for getting outdoors.”
While playing frisbee golf, students can also test their knowledge about the devastating risks involved with smoking by answering tobacco quiz questions at each of the course’s nine holes. Studies have shown that students who are physically active are less likely to smoke than their classmates.
Great Schools Partnership thanks the many organizations and individuals who made this youth disc course possible, these include: Smoke-Free Knoxville, the Knox County Health Department, Knoxville’s Disc Golf Association, Vulcan Materials, Home Depot, B&B Lawn Service, former Knoxville City Mayor Daniel Brown, Pluto Sports, Colby Byram, the numerous volunteers from Town Hall East, and Sarah Moore Greene’s families, students and staff.
