las vegas courses NOT listed on dgcr???

going to vegas in a few weeks, so im doing a little research...i was checking out this site, discgolfscene and lvdgc.com

maybe i am mistaking, but these other sites have a few courses listed that are not on here...

Arroyo Grande
Casons Davis Park
Armagosa Trail
Mount Charleston

do these courses still exist? why not listed on dgcr? or am i an idiot and they are on here.

can any locals confirm which site has the most up-to-date complete list of current courses...also any info about leagues from 4/1-4/3 would be awesome

I'm certain that Cason's and Mt Charleston are listed here, did you try making sure that the checkboxes for seasonal, temporary and practice courses are all selected on your search? Mt. Charleston likely falls into one of the first two categories, and IIRC Cason's falls into the third. I have no idea about either of the others, maybe they're locals' names for courses that are on the site but under another name?

EDIT:
Mt Charleston: http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=5493
Cason's: http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=3054

Armagosa Trail (called Paseo Verde Trailhead)
http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=5122

Still can't find Arroyo Grande.

Its best to search for course on here via map search or the nearby courses feature than typing in specific names for parks, courses or cities. If the course has an alternate name or you make even one typo, your name search will come up empty. If you type in "Las Vegas" for the city, you're not going to pick up courses in suburbs like Henderson.

Although the name search could be improved by adding these park/alternate names to the park/location name field.

Just to correct scarpfish, typing in Las Vegas will bring up courses in the suburbs. I made that change a while back.

No idea on that Arroyo course, can't find much info on it anywhere, including the LVDGC site. I did stumble upon this page which indicates the course exists. No details though.

From the looks of the aerial image, it looks like there are seven or eight visible, circular concrete tees and possibly some basket shadows there. Somebody local might want to list a 'new' course?

Just checked the local metro here. I stand corrected.

A little googling and it looks like the course is here- http://goo.gl/maps/qvq8t in Henderson, NV. But I could be wrong.

"There are about 10 courses in the valley, but Jacquart said some are strictly for local or casual players, and the serious players concentrate on four: Mountain Crest Park, 4701 N. Durango Drive; Red Ridge Park, 9198 W. Arby Ave.; Sunset Park, 2601 E. Sunset Road; and Arroyo Grande Sports Complex, 298 Arroyo Grande Blvd., in Henderson."

"The Arroyo Grande course is a pretty decent, challenging one. Our club helped design it.” - from an article in Las Vegas Review-Journal



A youtube video show one of the tees- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNiY87yHPBc

I wouldn't waste your time at Arroyo Grande. The circular tee pads are tiny, like 2 steps of a normal 4 step throw. There are no signs to guide you through the course and no numbers on the baskets or tees. Some locals have designed a alternate layout not using the tees which isn't bad but you'd have to play with one of them to figure it out. It's always empty and more or less a waste of 9 really nice and new DGA baskets.

Paseo Verde had some baskets pulled due to neighbors complaining about the noise. I've never bothered driving out there for a 6 basket pitch and putt. Probably be ok if you lived close and wanted to do some putting practice.
