MENOMONIE — Visitors at the Brickyard and Wakanda Park disc golf courses in Menomonie may notice a new amenity when they play the courses in 2018: Rustic benches. Seven benches have been designed and built by UW-Stout students, and six of them will be installed at the courses in the new year, with more on the way, thanks to a collaboration with the city’s Urban Forestry Board through a state Department of Natural Resources grant. One bench will go to the city’s Leisure Center.
