Carly’s Playground Shuts Down After Safety Concerns Are Raised

The disc golf course at Mt. Holiday in Traverse City is closed after safety concerns are raised.

Carly Jean Lewis was murdered in 2011.

She loved to disc golf with her friends.

Shortly after her death Carly’s Playground opened— in memory of her.

Last week, Mt. Holiday’s board of directors decided to shut the course down after their insurance company said they did not like how close it was to the newly installed zip line.

Carly’s father was devastated.

“We invested thousands of dollars. This was a community effort and a gift to the community. It’s really disheartening and sad to see it rejected,” said Todd C. Lewis. 

Lewis is hoping to build a new disc golf course soon.
