It's that time of the year again, when elk take over the golf courses during their rut! Mark Miller, local PGA professional and Manager of Golf Services for Estes Valley Recreation and Park District commented, "I just pulled the disc golf goals from our 9-hole course due to elk damage. Disc Golf will be closed through October 31 to prevent further equipment damage and to keep the elk safe".
