Project Description

At Black Hoof Park, the City of Lenexa is constructing an 18-hole traditional disc golf course as well as a nine-hole short course that is family friendly. The 18-hole course is being constructed on undeveloped park property north of the Oak Shelter. The nine-hole course will be constructed between the Oak Shelter and boat ramp on the northwest side of the lake. Both courses will activate portions of the park that have not been in use before.

An additional parking lot will be built off the main drive near the Oak Shelter. It will be placed between the two courses to help meet the increasing needs of park visitors.

Black Hoof 18-Hole Disc Golf Course – driven by Henderson Engineers

Henderson Engineers is national engineering and construction firm headquartered in Lenexa. Founded in 1970, the company has long put an emphasis on an employee-first culture, quality, innovation, the client experience and wellness.

As a part of the wellness experience, a strong disc golf culture has existed within the company for years and the first internal disc golf league was started over 25 years ago.

Giving back to the community is an important core value at Henderson and the support of the Black Hoof Park Disc Golf Course, with the City of Lenexa, is a way of giving back to
Henderson Engineers' hometown.  

Black Hoof 9-Hole Disc Golf Course – launched by the KS Flying Disc Association

The Kansas Flying Disc Association (KFDA) is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2021 by Rich Smith, a longtime Henderson Engineers employee and previous president and CEO of the firm.

Rich began playing competitive flying disc sports in his hometown of Topeka in 1979 and it has been a big part of his life since then. He started the KFDA as a way to give back to the sport he so loves by documenting the history of the flying discs in Kansas, creating an ongoing Hall of Fame and helping grow the sport through resources, consulting and education.

he KFDA hopes to help grow the sport through involvement with the City of Lenexa and the Black Hoof Disc Golf Course.
