Dustin Bethel has completed his Eagle Scout project, a culmination of a Boy Scout's career.

Bethel, almost 17, is a junior at Park Rapids Area High School. His project included constructing a nine-hole disc golf course at Heartland Park.


Players throw discs to baskets along a course, similar to golf.

"I'm a golfer so it kind of fit because it's similar," Bethel said.
