ENOCH--Disc golf cages have been installed around Enoch City as a community unity project headed by Enoch City Council Member Jolene Lee.

Lee said she got the idea about a year ago when she was in Canada with her granddaughter playing the sport.

“It was so fun, inexpensive and something our city can embrace,” she said.

With nine parks in the city of Enoch, Lee said, she felt with trails and disc golf it would be a great way for residents to connect and enjoy the city.

She said she wanted to get Southern Utah University involved and asked Pre-Med/Rural Health Program Member Ryan Dalebout to spend a few days showing students at Enoch Elementary, Three Peaks Elementary and Gateway Preparatory Academy how to play.

Each student will get an Enoch City Trails and Disc Golf Brochure and scoring pencil and will be able to use discs provided by Enoch City to learn how to play the popular fast-growing sport.

Dalebout said by getting the kids involved it will give them the desire to play. He informed the students that with the assistance of a parent or adult the kids can rent the discs for free from the city.

“It’s such a great community thing to do,” Lee said. “When kids pick up a disk it makes my heart happy that they are not in front of a TV all day.”

She said her mother is 82 years old and loves to play as well. The Ad Committee was introduced to Lee’s idea and has been excited and getting it introduced and publicized. She said they are emphasizing doing a 5K run for the July 4 celebration with disc golf.

Enoch City Manager Robert Dotson said the game is great to play anytime and with any attire. He said the trails connect the disc golf cages and some are at the city offices where the discs can also be rented. Dotson said Lee has really helped the city with her disc golf and other ideas.

“She’s a real go-getter,” he said.
