beautiful setting short course
Pros: The setting is a rare place for the Nebraska Panhandle, its in fact very beautiful and full of trees. Its as if an oasis sprang from the prairie plains in which spring time lasts a few months longer. Chadron State Park is worth a stop on its own. The park was the perfect afternoon relief, and was about ten degrees cooler in the park than in the nearby town of Chadron. The length of the course had my daughter insisting that she play. The homemade baskets provide an opportunity to think about putting differently. Drinks and snacks are available at the cabin where you pay to play.
Cons: The course is very short. Some of the holes would just be considered long putts or approach shots. Short homemade baskets, maybe they were just jammed into the ground too far. One basket was tipped over, I assume this was the result of people climbing on them and as a result I lost an ace. (It hit the chains and fell out of the side the basket was leaning). Perhaps some park employees can keep a better eye on the state of the baskets. I wish that the course could have gone into more sections of the park because the place is stunning. It would have been cool to bomb one over that lake.
Other Thoughts: Since the course is pulled in the winter, it can easily be redone the next season. There is a fee, when I paid the lady looked at me like I was crazy, but I insisted because I wanted her to understand that people will travel and pay for disc golf and I'm glad that the course is in the ground.
A few years back, a friend of mine played a course in nearby Ft Robinson Park. He described baskets that are very similar to these ones here. I called Ft. Robinson Park, and they knew nothing about a disc course. I suspect that the course that was in Ft. Robinson no longer exists because its in the ground here. You should diffidently call ahead before making the trip out to make sure that baskets are in the ground. If the course is not there or here the course in Chadron is permanent.
