Jumpstarted Charlotte Disc Golf.
That's why I ... after Nevin. I figured listing those three course alone would give him a pretty good idea of the epic designer he was inquiring about.

But Kilborne? I thought someone else did Kilborne. Did Stan design Skillborne perhaps?

Well he designed the Skilborne layout at least. No designer for Kilborne listed here.

Ah ha, I found it! On DGU it shows Steve Lambert and Alan Beaver as the designers for Kilborne.

I think Stan may have done the most recent redesign there.

Stan was going to make Nevin easy! Me and Matt Keatts had to beg him into letting us design the bits that eventually made it an (advanced beginner course) :-P

Parts of 5, 8, 9, 10, 12,15 16, 17, 18

From the old Mule himself. Here is the design and a message from Stan.

"Howdy,



I thought you Pinehurst disc golfers might want to know what the status is on the proposed course in Chicken Plant Rd. The Park Dept. has purchased nine Mach 2s for phase 1. Phase 1 will be an Eagle Scout project. I met with the scout and the park dept and walked holes 1-9 that will be his project which he hopes to begin by March.

The second phase, the back 9, will probably not happen till the next fiscal year. However, if there is a strong local contingent of disc golfers who would be willing to organize and work, perhaps we can convince the park department to allow the club to prepare the fairways on the back 9 in anticipation of when the park will have funds for the baskets for the back nine.

I have tried to convince the park dept to install two sets of concrete tees on each hole. This would provide a long tee for more experienced players and a tee for those of less experience or skill. They seem open to the idea but funding is always an issue.

The front 9 should play around 3700 from the tips and be par 30 as it will have three par 4s. The back 9 should play around 3500 from the tips and also will be a par 30 with three par 4s. This would put the layout in the general ballpark of 7300 from the tips with three of the holes bringing the pond into play.

Hole 1-330 par 3, Hole 2-320 par 3, Hole 3- 650 par 4, Hole 5- 290 par 3, Hole 6- 370 par 3, Hole 7 660 par 4, Hole 8- 520 par 4, Hole 9- 305 par 3. Hole 10- 290 par 3, Hole 11- 260 Par 3, Hole 12- 690 Par 4, Hole 13- 550 par 4, Hole 14- 280 par 3, Hole 15- 300 par 3, Hole 16- 260 par 3, Hole 17- 300 par 3, Hole 18- 600 par 4.

There are no amenities in this park at this time. No restrooms, no parking, not anything. They will provide some parking spaces, but this will be a primitive course until they develop the ballfields (the clearing on the map) and build a restroom facility.



Hope this help you get an idea what is coming to town.



Sincerely, Stan McDaniel"

It appears that this course will be a good complement to the new course at Southern Pines Reservoir Park i.e. Pine Cone Crush. I hear that Sandhills CC is thinking about starting a DG Team that will travel and compete with other colleges. I looks like the design above could make a fun tournament course.
