In April of 1999,
the Brakewell Steel / Town of Warwick Disc Golf
course officially opened for play at the Warwick
(NY) Town Park.
Disc Golf is a sport
similar in rules, terminology, and strategy to Ball
Golf, except instead of attempting to hit
a ball into a hole, in disc golf the object is to
throw a flying disc (e.g. a Frisbee) into a standardized
basket-and-chain catching device called a Pole-Hole.
There are approximately 1800 courses throughout
the United States and the sport is experiencing
fast growth as schools, parks, and recreation departments
seek alternate and inexpensive additions to their
Brakewell Steel is the main sponsor of this world-class
course, designed and installed by Dan Doyle. One of the unique features
of this course is that each of the tee signs marking
the Professional tees is one of Brakewells steel
These tees are now
known as the Animal Tees. For more information about
