CALICO ROCK — Officials have announced that Pirate’s Ridge Disc Golf Course at Rand Park in Calico Rock is now open.
To access the course, enter Rand Park and take the first right up the hill. Hole 1 starts on top of the hill, while holes 2 and 3 are played along the highway. “Starting with Hole 4, you will be playing in the woods,” officials said.
The rules of disc golf are similar to golf.
The goal is to get the disc in the basket in the fewest amount of throws. There are three main types of discs (a driver, a mid-range and a putter).
Drivers are for longer shots more than 200 feet. Mid-ranges are shots between 100-200 feet and a putter is for any shot under a 100 feet.

Born in Memphis, Tennessee, Lacy, 34, spent most of her life in the hills of Lawrence County. Today, she lives in Cave City, the home of “World’s Sweetest Watermelons,” in what’s known as the Prince Matlock house. Its former owner helped create what’s known as the Cave Courts where the city’s cave lies above the Crystal River. He fashioned his home out of the same rocks and materials that are found among the cave’s property, and she feels blessed to now be its caretaker for many more years to come.
