Fun will return to old Libertyland theme park site when a new disc golf course officially opens there Saturday.

Memphis Mayor A C Wharton and other city officials will open the new, 18-hole disc golf course with a brief ceremony Saturday at 10 a.m.

The course is free and open to the public.

Disc golf is played much like traditional golf, or "ball golf" as disc golfers call it. But instead of using clubs to hit a ball in a hole, disc golfers try to throw discs, like heavy Frisbees, into a basket.

The Libertyland Disc Golf Course will be the third free and open course in Memphis, joining courses at Meeman-Shelby State Park and Shelby Farms Park.
