Comparing Google Earth to the map, photos, and video tour, there is about a 35 foot drop from tee to target, and the actual distance is likely much shorter than the 565 listed here.

It would be difficult. For one, the spray pattern of the golf balls is much longer and wider. For another, there would just be too much open space (both long and wide) for an interesting disc golf...

It seems that if they won't even let uncertified golfers on the course, it wouldn't be a good candidate for trying to convince them to allow disc golfers.

TV10 is an open hyzer 35 feet downhill to a basket you can't really see behind trees filling up the middle of the fairway. The negative elevation would seem to explain why it is easy to 2.

The last full-power drive should always land within putting range?
