Heading to Chesapeake, VA

Iím heading out to Chesapeake, VA to introduce my sister to Disc Golf and Iím wondering what courses are worth going to around the Old Dominion University. Iíve seen a couple of courses in that area, but Iíd like a localís perspective.

I grew up there, in Portsmouth. But the Bennett's Creek isn't bad. I also went up to Newport News Park and New Quarter Park (Williamsburg) when I visited in the summer. All of them are pretty good, New Quarter being one of the best I've ever played.

If you are planning to introduce her to the game I would suggest Bayville in Virginia Beach as it is one of the closer courses to ODU (about 20 mins or so with no traffic). It is fairly flat and would be pretty good for a beginner to try out. I am a big fan of Bennett's Creek in Suffolk but it is heavily wooded and may frustrate a beginner. If you don't mind a bit of a drive there is Munden Point in Virginia Beach (about 45 minutes from ODU)which is fairly beginner friendly and New Quarter park in Williamsburg (close to an hour with no traffic) is a great course. There is another course in Newport News (about 45 mins away) but I havent played there yet. Let me know if you need additional info.

Go to Williamsburg and play New Quarter. It will be worth the drive.
