Wind SW @ 1
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.
