Since the construction of a Disc Golf course at the site in 2017, the sport continues to draw players locally and outside of the area.

The Binghamton Disc Golf Club Ice Bowl tournament January 30 brought in players from Albany, Buffalo, Syracuse in New York as well as Scranton and lower Pennsylvania and Connecticut, raising thousands of dollars and 147 pounds of food for the Tioga County Rural Ministry food program.
