Hosted by Marquette Mountain Resort, the Disc Golf Launch Party aims to bring together enthusiasts from all walks of life to celebrate the intersection of art, sport and fun. The event will be held at Marquette Mountain, the area’s year-round outdoor recreation resort renowned for its scenic beauty and family friendly atmosphere, to celebrate the installation of this first-of-a-kind disc golf course.

Highlights of the Disc Golf Launch Party include:

  1. Scrap Metal Art Sculpture Holes: Immerse yourself in a world of artistic expression as you navigate the unique art sculptures creatively designed to serve as disc golf holes. Each hole promises to be a fun and challenging blending of creativity and functionality in a joy inducing manner.
  2. Putt Putt Disc Golf: Prepare to test your disc golf skills in a thrilling putt putt format. Our first season of disc golf will feature a putting course across the base of the resort. Whether you’re a seasoned player or new to the sport, this accessible and inclusive format guarantees an enjoyable experience for all participants and focuses on families of all ages and abilities playing together.
  3. Meet the Artist: Stacy Hines, the artist and metal worker behind the amazing sculptures will be with us for part of the day. Stacy is a native of Michigan and a mechanical engineer by trade. He enjoys creating sculptures from scrap metal in his spare time. You can find Stacy on Facebook and Instagram @ScraptoArtMetalWorks.

“We are thrilled to bring together the worlds of art and disc golf at our Disc Golf Launch Party,” said Kaet Johnson, General Manager at Marquette Mountain Resort. “This event will provide a unique opportunity for people to engage with art in a dynamic and interactive way while enjoying the excitement of disc golf. It’s a celebration of creativity, sport, family, and community, and we can’t wait to share this unforgettable experience with everyone.” “These sculptures were created by Stacy Hines and the original 5 were featured in ArtPrize in Grand Rapids last summer. Once Marquette Mountain’s owner, Eric Jorgensen, saw them he knew they belonged here. He immediately commissioned four more holes and gifted all 9 to the mountain so that we have a 9-hole course.” Plans for another nine are in the works as well as subsequent phases that will install the holes around the mountain in a full course design, according to Johnson.

The Disc Golf Launch Party is open to all ages and skill levels. There is no cost to enjoy the putting course on Saturday. For more information, please visit or contact or 906.225.1155.
