The disc golf course at Central Oregon Community College is closed temporarily but could close for good. COCC says the immediate closure is due to the high fire danger in the region. It's the first time COCC has closed the disc golf course since it opened in 2001. The course is located on the COCC campus in Bend in a dry wooded area on the west side of the campus.
College officials say there is a serious problem with smoking, drinking and littering on the course. “At this point, our intent is to reopen the course once the fire danger has come down,” said Alicia Moore, dean of student and enrollment services at COCC. “However, when we reopen the course, we will be monitoring closely and are asking all participants to follow college rules related to not smoking, drinking and littering,” she said. “All are against our policies and we will be forced to close the course permanently if the situation does not improve.”
If there is no change in behavior at the course, COCC says it may close it for good.
