Grand opening and ribbon cutting held for new Deja Vu Disc Golf course

The Deja Vu Disc Golf course received significant support from the community and businesses to complete construction.

MOOSE JAW — After a year and some change, the Deja Vu Disc Golf course in Sunningdale Park has finally been finished. On Thursday, May 30, representatives from the City of Moose Jaw and the Sunningdale VLA Community Association held a grand opening and ribbon cutting.

This 18-hole course was professionally designed to include amateur and professional tee boxes so that everyone can play. There is no charge for public use, which breaks down many barriers to entry. A unique feature is offers the option of baskets to be moved to different hole locations to ensure the course stays fresh.

"It's a growing sport. It's a sport that people can play individually or in groups. It's a sport that you can enjoy any time there is daylight. It's just another feather in our cap for the city of Moose Jaw," stated Mayor Clive Tolley. "It's another thing that we can brag about and bring visitors to do when friends and family visit from all around the world. Let's go play some disc golf."

The Deja Vu Disc Golf course received significant support from the community and businesses to complete construction. The title sponsor is Deja Vu Cafe. Not only are they the title sponsor, but anyone who throws a hole-in-one on the 17th hole can win a free meal from Deja Vu.

Additionally, they have 13 other sponsors that are sponsoring holes, including Blue Whale Financial Solutions, Cornell Design and Landscaping, Favel Transportation, Global Direct Reality, Moose Jaw Carpet One, Moose Jaw Police Association, Ottawa Real Estate and Insurance, Paice Construction, Purposed Financial Corporation, Silver Star Salvage and Recycling, the Mad Greek, TNA Construction, Westrum Timber Mart. Without the help from these gracious hole sponsors, this project would not have been possible.

"As Parks and Recreation professionals, we go to work every day with one goal in mind, and that's to increase the quality of life here for our residents of Moose Jaw," stated Derek Blais, Director of Parks and Recreation. "I think this project ticks all of those boxes. When you look at the framework for recreation in Canada, there are five goals, and I believe this project completes all five of those goals, which are active living, inclusion and access, connecting people with nature, supportive environments, and creating recreation capacity."

The project began in April of 2023 when the Sunningdale VLA Community Association received approval from the city council to build the course. After a couple of setbacks and barriers that needed to be removed, the disc golf course has opened.

“On one hand, it feels like we blinked, and it happened. On the other hand, though, there’s been so much work that has gone into making this happen," explained Leslie Campbell, representing the Sunningdale VLA Community Association. "It just feels really, really good that the course is officially open, and people can play and have fun."

Deja Vu Cafe concluded the grand opening by throwing the first discs.
