DGCourseReview link (not available)
So while I was playing Quivira DGC in Marquette, Bentley and I were talking and he says something about a new course in Hesston? I assume they are reworking the Hyzernaut Farm course at the retreat center and he nixed that. Now he has my attention! After grabbing lunch in Marquette I headed to Hesston. I stopped at the Sonic for a half price Route 44 Diet Cherry Limeade. While I’m sitting there waiting for 2:00, I see on Facebook that Smitty (Chris Smith) just saw baskets east of the interstate at Hesston. My biggest problem was that I didn’t know there was a park where the course is located and my wife’s family has lived in Hesston for years.
All bets were off and I went and found the course. As I drove in there were 3-4 mowers hard at work knocking down the grass. It appeared to be a fairly open course which was quite a contrast to Marquette where I had battled trees earlier in the day. One of my first questions getting out of the truck is always, “How do I find the tees?” In this case I found basket 9 and started looking around to see any kind of marker close by that would indicate the designer put the finishing hole close to the first tee. I found a 1x1 stake with a blue wire flag stuck next to it and on it was written T1. As I looked up I saw a basket in front of me out in the open and I was in business.
At this point I stopped to consider the course just a bit. I didn’t do a Periscope as I already had 36 holes under my belt for the day and it was HOT. Between Marquette and Hesston I had stopped and thrown Moundridge which I hadn’t done in a couple of years and it was on my way home. It appeared to be a pretty open course where wind would play a factor. I decided to take pictures and measure hole distances via GPS in my UDisc app. I didn’t map it in UDisc.
DISCLAIMER: The distances note below are not highly accurate and are straight line measurements. The baskets were all in their short positions.
Hole 1 (230’) This is a wide open hole with a couple of trees to the right. I played on/over the road as OB. As I got to the basket and looked at it I discovered it was a new DGA Mach III. I also discovered there was an alternate basket location with a sleeve in the ground and marked with a 1x1 stake and a red flag.
Hole 2 (460’) I assumed the course was going to pretty much follow the perimeter of the park so I started looking for basket 2. There is a tree line that runs to the NW and basket is in line with trees towards end of the row. The tee is on the south side of tree line. You can throw along the trees which is a longer route or cross over the tree line to cut down on the distance. I again played on/over road as OB.
Hole 3 (215’) The tee is just north of basket 2. You’ll throw north around a group of trees to the basket across road tucked up against some evergreen trees. If you step right of the tee, you can see the basket. An overthrow will get you in a bit of trouble.
Hole 4 (210’) The tee to right (SW) of 3 basket. If you look towards the cell tower you will see the basket through cottonwood trees. Going left around trees puts you in tall grass if you don't make it. Going right is mowed but a bigger bend around trees. The basket is in an opening with a landing area. There are no real problems unless you don’t get around the trees.
Hole 5 (210’) Tee 5 is south of basket 4 and don't confuse with alternate 4 basket placement (until more permanent tee markers are in). This is a straight shot to a basket with trees and a small hill behind it. It shouldn't be a problem unless you overthrow it. The alternate basket is to the right around the trees/hill about another 70'.
Hole 6 (350’) The tee for 6 is NNE around trees/hill. You are throwing south to a wide open basket. The only challenge here may be the distance.
Hole 7 (240’) The tee for 7 is back to the NNE between two trees. You can't see the basket from the tee. Step about 30' to the east and you can see it between two sets of evergreen trees to the right.
Hole 8 (235’) The tee is south of basket 7 in the open. If you look SSE towards the big blue sign in the sky, you'll see basket 8. The large group of trees to the left of basket are closer to the basket and thicker than you think. There are a few trees line right side of fairway
Hole 9 (265’) Tee 9 is south of basket 8 in the open. Basket 9 is in the circle drive and is a straight shot to west. There are few evergreens on the right of the fairway.
Here are some thoughts I had as I finished up. As I stood on Tee 9 and looked to my left I wished they would have incorporated the pond into the course. It could have added a couple of holes with some different challenge. What I don’t know is what the city of Hesston gave them permission to do. I also think some holes would be more interesting if the baskets were in their long positions. Hole 3 and 5 come to mind.
I’ll definitely play it again. It was hot and I had 36 holes under my belt already. I’d like to play it when I was fresh. This course was on nobody’s radar and I’d like to see what the designer(s) have in mind for the future.

DG Course Review
Inman is a small town of about 1300 halfway between Hutchinson and McPherson. The course is located in Lambert Park at the corner of Center St and Gordon St which is pretty much in the middle of town. I came in town westbound on Center Street and the first thing I saw was the pond. As I looked farther south I saw a playground and shelter building. I turned down Gordon Street and parked just south of the shelter. As I got out I saw the skateboard park.
There are several reasons for me playing this course. It is new and so becomes part of my journey. It was a project by the high school daughter of a friend I play with occasionally and it was a food drive for a town that is important to some of my family. With that said, it was also a beautiful day at the end of February and was to get up into the low 70s with the usual south Kansas wind that makes winter days that warm.
After getting checked in I stepped out on the east side of the shelter to take a look at the course. My first impression was, “this is a small park!” I’ve been in other small Kansas towns with bigger parks and their courses were pretty decent. I’ve also been in some similar sized towns with this or smaller sized parks where things weren’t so good.
I’ve got a buddy, Ty, and we remind ourselves that we never make judgements on shots until we are standing over the result. I’ve adopted the same attitude for my travels so I grabbed my NutSac bag with the 7 discs I’m focusing on this year and headed out for tee 1.
The tee pads are cement, new and short. There are posts in for the signs. The permanent signs aren’t in yet, but they had laminated pictures of them stapled to the posts. I would come to like their signage a lot! They are very clear in relation to mandos and OBs. The baskets are new and are the yellow Discatchers. As you can see, I’ve listed the distances below, there is nothing over 300’ which can also lead to some discouraging thoughts. I found the tee pads to be adequate on most holes because of the distances.
Hole 1 has a basket protected by trees and a straight path takes you over the skateboard park which is marked OB on the tee sign.
Hole 2 goes across a drainage ditch that shouldn’t come into play and the basket iss located near a tree and shrub row.
Hole 3 travels over the same drainage ditch to a basket protected by a bushy tree 30’ in front and an OB street 20' to the right. (distances estimated)
Hole 4 tee is right next to hole 2 tee. It is about 30’ back from a group of 3 mature trees. There is a mando between the nearest two trees and the third tree has some low branches that force you to keep your shot down, but you still need to get some distance out of it. It is slightly downhill which helps. The basket is located in a group of 3 trees as well.
Hole 5 goes back the other way with a tree near the tee with low branches that affect your shot. In addition, it is uphill making the low branches even more effective. It is somewhat protected by a tree and there is a street close behind it making an overthrow dangerous.
Hole 6 is the longest on the course and it is slightly downhill toward the water. The basket is quite near the water. There is a large evergreen just off center of a direct line between the tee and the basket. There is also a large tree to the left of and a bit closer to the tee. Beyond the evergreen to the right is a group of mature trees. There are routes for both lefties and righties, but accuracy is a premium and an overthrow gets wet. You really want to be putting from the sides of this basket because putting straight at it with the water directly behind can be a bit unnerving.
Hole 7 is the only one that goes directly across the water. It is the second longest hole and is uphill. During warmer weather there is a fountain in the middle of the water that will cause you to change your throw a bit. If you do end up in the water, they have a very nice drop zone with a cement pad and sign on the north side between the pond and the street. The basket is located near some trees and close to a sidewalk that is OB. The street is also OB which makes the grass strip in between not OB. There is a hill to the left side of the basket that has no real effect except to stop your disc short and quick if you go that way.
Hole 8 is a dangerous hole. The basket again is located very near the water and the fairway is downhill. Together they encourage discs to get wet! It plays on the other side of the hill that affects Hole 7. The tee is located near trees that have no real effect on your drive. About halfway down the fairway is a tall light post that is a mando right. For lefties, this hole can be tough! The tee sign indicates that on this mando, should you miss it, you are to take a stroke and drop next to the light pole.
Hole 9 finishes back slightly uphill. The basket is located in the middle of 7-8 trees which force your uphill drive to be low if you want to get there for a birdie.
I made it around the course 3 times: 1 practice round and 2 rounds for the tournament. You really don’t need a course map to find your way around. I’ve got to say I had a very good time! It’s a small park with short holes and I mostly used my mids and putters, but they have done a great job with tee and basket placement to make it fun and a bit challenging. I would think people in the area who are starting and learning the game will really enjoy this course. For the more experienced players in the area, it will be a great place to hone the short game. I have family in the area and I have no doubt that I’ll play that course every time I get a chance.

I seem to have some issues with my schedules. I always seem to miss a time calculation somewhere and this time I missed it early. The whole day is going to have to change a bit to get everything done. Now that I’m into my 5th trip, I also understand that to enjoy the ride, I have to relax and roll with the punches. I’ll probably not get one of my scheduled courses done this trip and that is OK.
I found the park easily and as I drove in there was a sign with some info and the tee sign for hole #1. The info on the sign was in poor shape and there was a mailbox with scorecards, but no maps. Looking around I didn’t think that would be a problem because the park isn’t that big. It is ‘busy’ though, like a lot of smaller town parks. There are multiple ball fields, soccer complex, playground, picnicking areas, and a water park.
My initial thoughts include the observation that it is a well taken care of park which I have found true for most small Kansas towns. The baskets appear to be homemade and the park appears to be pretty ‘busy’ with lots of potential activities. My guess is that it will play pretty quick.
The weather was a cool 67 degrees, overcast, a little foggy, and quite dewy. There was also a light breeze.
As I played the first two holes I noticed the park was well mowed and in fact they have mowed fairways even shorter which turned out to be a good help. I’m guessing the fairways may also indicate the disc golf course gets used. I found the course to run around the perimeter of the park counter clockwise
I got delayed after hole 2 because I was looking for tee 3 based on what was written in a review on DGCourseReview.com. After some searching I found tee 4 and decided I’d play from there. As I got ready to throw, I looked around and behind me across a road and down an incline was a basket. As I tried to guess the path back to tee 3, I found it up another incline close to basket 2. After you hole out on 2, look to your right, backwards across the road and you’ll see the sign for tee 2. The basket for 3 is to the east, inside the soccer complex and under a huge old cottonwood tree.
With that noted, it’s a bit of a walk, straight north, from basket 3 to tee 4. Holes 4-6 use a more heavily treed area pretty well. This is the most technical portion of the course.
Your next walk comes from basket 6 to Tee 7 in a NW direction. Look for the porta-potty to the north of the ball field and you’ll see the sign. Hole 7 is straight down an open area with road on the left and a tree line on right. At the end of the fairway there is a 90 degree dogleg right, up an incline, into the trees. It’s good to see they didn’t just stick the basket out in the open.
Hole 8 is open all the way to the basket, but the basket is close to the highway on the right and an access road on the left. I always play roads as OB so it made the hole more interesting.
I couldn't find a tee sign for 9 so I walked straight south from basket 8 passed one ball field to the corner of the next ball field. I knew where basket 9 was because it is close to tee 1. This is the longest hole on the course. I decided the corner of the ballfield was probably a good choice because I spotted a mowed 'fairway’ arcing left along the field and then towards the basket.
It’s a fun little Rec course. Beginners will have a really good time here. Intermediates can enjoy it as well. The treed holes of 4-6 provide some technical practice. I appreciate that they did a really nice job of not just making it a wide open and simple course. I did use a lot of mids off the tees and ended up with 3 birdies missing a fourth by an inch. With a couple of straighter drives I may have been able to up the birdie total to 5 or 6.
The tee signs are hole numbers only, the tee pads are grass and there was no map. I put a little map together and uploaded it to DGCourseReview for reference. I do wish I could have had hole distances. My wheel is no more and I haven’t bought a new one yet. I talked to guy in the Rec Department office and he knew the sign for hole 9 was missing and has been for a while, but that’s about it. I didn’t get any other information.
If you're around Council Grove and like to throw, you should stop...it's a good time

This ended up being the last course, number 13, of the trip. I had one more planned, but just didn’t have the energy to get it done. A special addition to this course was the addition of a good friend, Ty! He is one of a handful of guys I play with on a regular basis and it was great having along!
As we pulled into the park, the ‘lake’ was very low. Fortunately, it wasn’t the main lake because the course is literally designed around it. We found the grass a bit tall. Using a picture of the map on the course sign we got started and then it was just a matter of walking around the lake.
The first third of the course is pretty flat and open. Things get much more interesting with Hole 6 which goes across the corner of the lake. The Basket on 6 is located close to the water in front and the sidewalk behind and has trees close.
The next few holes add elevation and trees. When you get to 11, placement starts getting more important with trees, OB and structures.
It’s a walk from Basket 13 and Tee 14. The next 4 holes have narrow fairways water on the left and road on the right. Trees and a few manmade artifacts add to the difficulty.
Hole 18 is fairly wide open and finishes the course by going over part of the lake. It’s not particularly difficult or touchy and isn’t a great finishing hole after surviving the previous four holes.
After Norton, it was my next favorite course on this trip. Ty and I both thought it was fun, challenging and would love to play it again. If I lived a bit closer, I wouldn’t thik twice about a day trip to play these two courses. If you haven’t, you should consider heading this way and enjoying these courses

Some time ago I had used the stfanciskansas.com website to make contact and check the status of a possible course there. So when it came time to play it, I used their instructions to find it. While they got me to the course, they didn’t get me to the beginning of the course.
I drove into the park and saw baskets and started driving around the loop to see if I could find Hole 1. Halfway around I spotted a couple of guys throwing so I stopped and asked them for better instructions. I took what they gave me and went to find Tee 1. I finished driving the loop and couldn’t see it so back I went. This time I asked better questions and got better answers but instead of going to Tee 1, I parked, locked up and joined Bill and Chris on Hole 5!
It’s a small park that is clean and mowed. It has some trees along with covered shelters, and restrooms. There are tee signs, but no tee boxes. You’ll find the beginning of the course along highway 36. Just west of the old church is a covered shelter with a map of the course and nearby is a practice basket. You’ll also see Basket 9 to the south of the shelter and then Tee 1 to the south of Basket 9.
Hole 1 throws east with a tree row on the right and hole 9 on the left. Hole 2 has to clear a road to get back into the main park. Holes 3, 4 and 5 are pretty tame with 5 being wide open. Hole 6 has trees in it and a little dogleg around a building…don’t leave your disc on the roof! Hole 7 has some trees to deal with. Hole 8 is a blind shot with a bunch of evergreen shrubs to go over and the basket is across a road on a strip of grass. You’ll need to walk west across a road and behind a building to get to Tee 9 which takes you back to the original shelter.
Having Chris and Bill along added a whole new dimension to the course. With them being local they could add info I wouldn’t have gotten anywhere on the course. That and they were just good guys!! It’s one of those courses you don’t drive a ways to go play but if you’re close, it is a good time. I was in the far reaches of NW Kansas for this project with the added benefit of picking up a good friend of mine, Ty, who would join me for the rest of the day. He was here for a wedding.

I played this course early Saturday morning. I stayed in town overnight and as I came into town there was a huge car show. That should have been a red flag.
When I got to the park, there were a number of people, a large tent and several trailers starting to set up in the park in the fairways of holes 1 and 3. I threw out my normal prep and started throwing to get those holes done and out of their way.
It’s a nice looking park with some trees, shelters, play equipment, baseball field and a swimming pool. There is a road that splits the park into 2 parts. It was mowed and appeared to be well taken care of. There is a sign that includes the rules for recreational play and tee signs with yardage, par and a general look at the hole. The yardage is off GPS so it will be close but not exact.
Tee 1 is on the north side of the park next to the swimming pool. There is a walking path and light poles in fairway #1. I decided to count sidewalks and roads as OB to increase the difficulty.
Hole 2 goes across a parking lot and road but can be cleared. The basket is near the baseball field.
Hole 3 goes across the south edge of the north side of the park with the basket on the other side of some evergreen trees and up close to the swimming pool.
Tee 4 is south of Basket 3 and across the road. It’s one of the longest holes and the sign shows it going over part of the baseball field which I would think is OB. There are two trees in front of the tee pad along with a memorial sign so either you go over the field or you go right around the trees and sign lengthening the hole. As you go around the ball field the basket is tucked in close to the far side of the field.
Hole 5 is pretty short and you can’t see the basket which is close to a toddler swingset/playground.
Throwing Hole 6 you'd better have a low shot all the way which is about 230'. There are low trees which prohibit the disc from having much height. The basket is tucked in behind trees and close to a fence.
Hole 7 goes back to Tee 6 and has the same low shot. This basket is quite close to a shelter which could cause issues.
Hole 8 is LONG for this course. It runs to the west and if you follow the curb to the 2nd gazebo, the basket is a hard right around the parking lot. It is anchored in a little strip of grass with parking lot in front, fence in back and a tree on the right. If you throw right at the basket, the flight pattern is almost all OB over the parking lot.
You can find Tee 9 by walking across the parking lot towards the pool. If you look towards the pool you can see the basket is tucked into a couple of large old trees and close to the swimming pool.
The park isn’t very long, but really quite fun to play. The only hole I found to somewhat difficult was the 5th hole around the baseball field. It had length, trees and OB. Hole 8 could be an issue but I got a good drive and landed it on the strip hosting the basket for a birdie. The baskets were a bit older but in good shape. The tee pads are only 4' long but good news is they are flat with the ground so you can use space behind and in front of them. There were a couple of basket placements that could be issues because of manmade obstacles being used by people. It’s probably not a real busy park.

With it being a rainy, cloudy day I pulled up and parked in front of the swimming pool…since no one was there. Hole 1 is just on the north side. By the time I got back the skies had cleared and there were lots of people enjoying the pool!
I found the course sign, but couldn’t read it. It had deteriorated. It appeared that I was pointed to the north and I saw a basket so I started there. The course had been mowed, but you can tell it had grown quite tall before the mower got there.
Once hole 1 was done I was lost. I could only see one other basket to the south and so I walked a bit to the east and made my own tee and off I went. I found a disc! Unfortunately, it had been chewed up by a mower because it got lost in the tall grass.
Tee 3 had tee markers! Too bad the rest of holes didn’t. I couldn’t see the basket until I walked where I thought the tee was pointing. The ground dropped off to the creek and there was the basket. The area around the basket had been mowed and the tall grass made a cool effect.
Now I’m looking for tee 4 and couldn’t find it, but I did find Basket 4. There is a path from Basket 3 along the creek and then to the creek. Across the creek I could see a basket and assumed it was 4. I decided to throw from close to Basket 3. I laid up in front of the creek and then threw across. Looking at a photo on DGCourseReview.com and it appears that I should have been able to throw straight across. The picture is 4 years old and the foliage has really closed up the opening.
There is a path mowed to the SE from Basket 4 and I see another basket so I called it 5 and threw to it.
A path was mowed towards the road and as I followed it there was more mowed path and as I looked west I saw a tree up against the trees near the creek. Hole 6 does cross a road used to get into the south part of the park so check for traffic coming off the highway.
From Basket 6 follow the path mowed to the south around the trees and you’ll find a circular mowed area which is the tee. To get to hole 7 you’ll need to throw across a road again.
When I looked up there was a white sign pointing to the SW with the words 8 Tee on it…and yes there was a mowed path.
Hole 8 goes back over the creek and it would be worth your time to walk the bridge and see where the basket is. It’s not nearly as far as you might think (15’?) and it’s far enough right that you can’t see it from the tee.
Tee 9 is to the east and hole 9 runs to the east and goes over the little lip, flattens out and then drops down a bit to the creek. You can't see basket 9 but there is a mowed path (seen a pattern yet?) towards the trees and creek. Like Colby, basket 9 is a long ways from tee 1 and it’s a good hike back to the pool.
Enjoyed this course and sure wish they had clear tee markers on each hole. I’m guessing those big mowers pretty much take care of them. I would have liked to go back and play it again right away, but it was the 6th course of the day and 10th of the trip and I was a bit on the tired side.

This trip was overcast with rain even though I dodged it except for 45 minutes while I was driving. The effect was readily seen during my experience with this course. First I took County Road 52 instead of 57. I don’t know what the other route looks like, but this route was dirt road or should I say clay. With the rain they had, it was an adventure getting to the course. Once you start down the road, you don’t stop until you get there because if you slow down…you’ll probably end up in the ditch. I wasn’t sure I’d get back out, but I was committed to getting in!
As I drove in, I kept driving until I got to the back of the park. There was an incredibly beautiful log cabin home being built on a hillside on the way in. Other than hole 9, the course is separate from the camping, activity, picnicking area. I found a parking spot…I was the only one there.
I looked up on the hillside to the north and saw a basket and then as I was looking around, I found a few more. I decided to throw to the closest basket and then find another one. The baskets were in tall grass, but paths had been mowed, not real wide, and would be helpful. I found a walking trail sign on the west side of the hill and decided to use that as Tee 1. At that point I was looking around and saw a big white mailbox sitting on the ground by a tree across the road. It said Frisbee Golf Maps on it so I grabbed one of those. You can find a copy on DGCourseReview.com. After Hole 1, I found tall flags marking the tee spots.
Someone has created an iOS app (Smoky Golf) for the course. It uses a compass to direct you to the next tee and allows you to keep score. The compass was fairly helpful, but I was glad to have a map. I was disappointed when I found out that it didn’t save my score. I prefer using UDisc and a paper map.
I started playing up the hill and realized real quick I might be having trouble finding my discs in the tall grass. When I got to Basket 1, I found it to be homemade with 12 single chains. By the end of the round, I found they can spit out kind of easy.
Holes 2-5 are on the top of the hill and behind the tree line. Back there are a number of evergreen trees. Hole 2 is short, but the basket is under the tree and branches hanging low. The baskets on holes 3-5 can’t be seen from the tees. Basket 3 is in the trees just to the right. Basket 4 is pretty much straight down the path. Basket 5 is down and to the right as well and if you’re playing with someone it may be helpful to have someone go down and spot throws.
By the time I got to Hole 6 I had changed my approach a bit because I’d almost lost my disc 3 times. I started taking a mid and throwing more straight, but shorter shots. Playing this course with multiple people is helpful.
After completing the course I found that it was kind of neat to be out in the middle of nowhere. There was a slight breeze through the grass and trees. You could hear the wild turkeys and Meadowlarks…Peaceful. Unfortunately, along with that setting come the flies and mosquitoes. The flies were incessant and plentiful.
I’m not sure when it was put in, but I think it’s fairly new. As long as they maintain the course, it’s not a bad play. It it’s not taken care of then I wouldn’t suggest playing it.

My first encounter with the course was the location. The instructions on DGCourseReview.com noted weren’t written well and were easy to misunderstand so I tweaked them a bit. It ended up being easy to find because of what appeared to be a nice new sign. When I figured it out, I parked in the TV station parking lot instead of driving down into the park and having to walk back up to Tee 1. There was plenty of space, but I suppose the station could have got on my case.
It had rained just before I got there and things were wet! The parks department was actually doing some mowing at the same time. It was obvious that it hadn’t been mowed for awhile. The wet finally killed my measuring wheel. I measured hole 3 four different times and got four different distances and I knew none of them were close. I didn’t get this course measured.
Tee 1 is marked with a field disc painted white. Other than that I only found a tee marker on 5 which was a rock with a 5 painted on it. There were not tee signs or course map posted. The baskets are old/rusty but seemed to catch OK. They could stand to be replaced if course use justified it.
Looking around I couldn’t see many baskets and with trees blocking my view of the lake I didn’t really know what to expect. I chose not to go wandering and looking and just get started. After the fact I discovered some playground equipment a fishing lake that was used and some trees that needed trimming for the sake of the course.
Hole one starts high and ends high with a valley in between. There was a drainage ditch into the lake at the bottom and with all the rain it had enough water in it to make getting across a challenge. Hole 2 was the same with the basket near Tee 1.
Hole 3 had a big evergreen with low hanging branches and trees on both sides making it hard to see a clear path to hole. Again, I didn’t walk to see what was really there, I just guessed there was a gap and anhyzered a Westside Hatchet which found the gap and landed close to the basket.
Hole 4 was a short, straight, flat hole with low hanging trees. Hole 5 was an open shot with a narrow fairway. There was OB road on the right and OB fence on the left.
Hole 6 was long and across an open field with a dogleg right next to some trees.
Hole 7 was also long with a slight dogleg left and followed a drainage ditch with OB road on the left. It was placed near the drains that go under the road. If there is any significant rain, this basket becomes unplayable.
There is a significant walk from Basket 7 to Tee 8 which is located on the north side of the pond. You throw across the water to a basket tucked under some trees. It’s not a long hole and the water shouldn’t be an issue.
Hole 9 is loooong with water on the right all the way and yards on the left side. About halfway is a big old tree with limbs that are nearly touching the ground. It really needs to be trimmed. The only real play is to lay up as near the tree as you can and hope you can see an opening. The basket is up on a hillside near a yard.
Once you’re done, it’s a trek back to tee 1 and, if you parked in the TV Station lot, your vehicle. It appears you either park down inside the park with a walk to the first tee or a walk when you’re finished.
I’m guessing they won’t mow holes 6 and 7 much based on where they are located so expect tall grass. The pars are a bit outlandish unless you are just beginning. I’m thinking they are all 3s except 9 which is a 4. I think that it would be an OK park if it is mowed and trimmed a bit. It isn’t a destination course
I'll write a review here on each course I play and also one on dgcoursereview.com. My views will reflect the fact I'm in this project for the journey...
