Flying Dragon Disc Golf in Decatur, Alabama

Does anybody have any additional information about this course or its development progress? The Decatur Parks and Recreation page says it will be completed in 2013. Its located in the Jack Allen Recreation Complex and it appears the official hours are 7am-4pm Monday through Friday.

Anybody on this board helping put this course together?

The course is currently open with 10 holes (1-9, and 12). There is supposed to be a workday soon to work on the other 8 holes.

Flying Dragon: Design Input Requested!!!

work on the final holes will begin soon (november 2012). check out the new "Course Map" images, but realize that these are subject to change. in fact, design input is welcome from anyone willing to walk the undeveloped areas of the course within the next 2-3 weeks. the terrain is a critical factor and it is not possible to provide useful input without 'on the ground' knowledge.

the new layout will add 2-3 more holes in the wooded section, but in a much more scenic and rocky area (i.e. hard work but fabulously beautiful), and the final holes in more open areas, allowing for longer (up to 616') shots.

to assist in the development, contact us through this forum or via 'flyingdragondiscgolf@gmail.com'.

thanks much!

btw, the posted hours that were mentioned earlier refer only to parking. the disc golf hours are dawn to dark, but when the soccer complex is not open, you have to walk further to begin playing disc golf. hint: start at hole 3 if you have to park at the gate.

Played the in-progress course when I was in town over the weekend. First 12 holes looked good, especially 11 and 12. Those look to be "Signature" holes FWIW. I'll have a review up soon.
