This course was a ghost because no one I contacted could tell me if it existed. That is until I stopped at City Hall to ask about a potential disc golf course. The clerk was very familiar with it and even gave me a bit of history not to mention the location.
It is at 4th Street and 40th road. Tee 1 is 1/2 block east of 5th Street and Spruce street. It’s been there since at least 2004 and was built by a student for a high school project. His father was into the sport as well and helped him make the baskets and design the course.
It’s not a destination course by any means, but if you're in Jamestown you can stop and have a good time. It won’t take more than 30-45 minutes to play 9 holes. The course runs around the outside of the park. The baskets have 9 chains and use rubber feed buckets that are a bit too small. There are no tee pads, but you should be able to find most tee markers which are a square stone with the word Hole and the number on them.
Hole 1, 191’, probably should play parking lot OB which means there is a big right bend just before hole
Hole 2, 141’, basket at corner of building
Hole 3, 240’, trees along right edge, playground along left edge, narrow opening
Hole 4, 227’, trees along right edge
Hole 5, 270', pretty wide open until you get close to the basket with bleachers on the left, then a tree and it is up against a building: Be aware of people
Hole 6, 315', a blind shot because of a shed in the way, sits right next to a baseball field with a road on the other side which could easily be made OB
Hole 7, 155', no really any danger there, road off to the right a little bit, have to throw over the corner of a fence, sits kind of in a corner of two roads but is far enough in not to be a real concern
Hole 8, 247', mature trees along the right edge, baseball field on the left edge, could be a bit tight
Hole 9, 163', baskets don't catch real well, 9 chains, plastic feed basket for catcher, reminds me of that skinny basket you can buy to sharpen your putting skills
