Brainard residents now have a new activity they can take part in, disc golf. Kale Glasshoff learned that the community was looking for ways to get kids moving. The village had been awarded a $15,000 grant from the state to use to motivate children 6-17 to exercise, plus another $1000 donation from the Q125 Committee. Kale then contacted Dave Struebing, one of the committee members of the Healthy People, Healthy Brainard group. He had a suggestion, to put up a disc golf course. Struebing ordered the golf baskets from a company in Emporia, Kansas. Kale was also willing to put in the work to make the course happen. He felt this project would meet the requirements for earning his Eagle Scout Badge. It took three days to set up the course. There are five baskets in Evergreen Park and four baskets around the swimming pool. Discs are available for checkout at the pool for anyone who would like to play. Disc Golf follows the same rules as regular golf. The object of the game is to get your disc, which is similar to a frisbee, into the basket with the least amount of throws.
Other Healthy People, Healthy Brainard projects in the works are a GaGa Ball pit, bike repair stations, and a Pickle Ball court.
