18-hole course officially opens

April 4, 2011

KALAMAZOO, Mich.-After receiving more than 180 contest entries, the Air Zoo has chosen a name for its disc golf course-"Field of Flight."

The winning name was submitted separately by two contestants-Brian Mosher of Otsego and Chris Chester of Marshall. Both contestants will receive a prize package, courtesy of the Air Zoo.

"We received a number of great suggestions from the public," said Bob Ellis, Air Zoo president and CEO. "We selected 'Field of Flight' because it symbolizes the spirit of the Air Zoo and aviation."

The Field of Flight disc golf course officially opened this weekend as a full 18-hole course, designed by professional disc golfer Larry LaBond. Field of Flight is the only public disc golf course in Portage. It is free and open to the public year-round.
