RUMMU Quarry I DiscGolf

Rummu karjääri discgolfiraja loomine

With the construction of the disc golf course, Rummu Quarry has created a completely new service and opportunity to engage in active activities in the open air, regardless of the weather. 

The goal of the project was to build a non-contact disc golf park at the Rummu quarry. The park is intended for visitors during the day as one activity alongside other services or as a completely separate visit and experience. This mitigates the effects of Covid-19 - the park is located in the open air, the visitor does not come into contact with other visitors and he can enter and exit the park at a convenient moment contact-free

For the locals of the hub, this means the opportunity to come after work or the school day, and why not also take a career and learn a new sport during the holidays. 

The disc golf park in Rummu was built with the help of a LEADER grant (LEADER measure regulation § 42 subsection 7 paragraph 12).

If you have any suggestions, comments, proposals or if you would like to organize your own event on our territory, please write to us to info@rummu.ee. korraldada, siis kirjuta meile julgelt info@rummu.ee.
