CHEYENNE MOUNTAIN STATE PARK – Frolfers in the Colorado Springs area now have a new, scenic place to play.

Cheyenne Mountain State Park announced Friday that their newly installed 9-hole disc golf course is now open in the Meadows Campground loop.

The park said the new course is short but challenging and offers frolfers plenty of chances to try out their roller, tomahawk, and hyzer throws.
