Was a fun day
Pros: - Plenty of parking. As you pull in, drive past the Clubhouse and continue around the bend in the road and park at hole #1.
- Pavilions/benches around back of the Clubhouse, with bathrooms and food inside during the ball golfing season
- Full bar at the Clubhouse!
- If you are a golfer, you could easily make a day of playing ball and disc golf
- There is no 'Disc Golf' sign at the entrance, but turn into the driveway with the Mulligan Springs Par 3 Golf - Pub sign.
- The map is very accurate and helpful
- The tee signs are very unique and well done
- The baskets are in great shape and have a very unique look to them as well
- The scenery and landscape are very pretty and manicured as expected on a golf course
- I have not been there during a golfing season, however, I have heard that there is only light traffic on this course by disc golfers and ball golfers.
- There are trashcans at the Clubhouse and the course is very clean
- There is no vandalism
- The distances on this course is simply average. For the average arm, much of the course will be your max distance drives. For the big arm, this course only has one challenging hole, #5, that you may not be able to reach the basket on your drive.
- This course is fairly flat overall but #1, #5 & #10 sit on a hill and provide some fun elevation
- The water is everywhere! Plan your shot carefully! The water really adds to this course and may even scare the big arms into playing it safe.
Cons: - Course is located on a ball golf course. It is free to disc golf, but playing ball golfers would have the right-of-way.
- Because of the flow of this course, tee signs with basket location would be very helpful. This course would be highly difficult to play for the first time without a map. Some Next Tee signs would be very helpful.
- The natural tees are in good condition but could really use some kickboards. The rating on this course would really jump much higher with a concrete tee makeover.
Other Thoughts: - The flow is neither a Pro or a Con. It goes in a circle but can be sporadic at times. For example, switching from hole #3 to #4 can be confusing because #4's tee is somewhat in #3's fairway. The walk between #4 to #5 is quit long. #7 tee can be difficult to find the first round you play there after finishing #6. But in the end, #10 does finish at #1 where the parking lot also is.
- I suggest only hitting this course in the winter. There are sure to be no golfers and most likely no disc golfers. There are water hazards for 5 holes and in the winter, on thick ice, it's easier to get your disc back.
- This is not a challenging course overall but it was fun to play. There were no really technical heavily wooded shots. Most were fairly open with maybe one or two obstacles to go around downrange.
- The most challenging hole is #6. Even after the second round I was still undecided on what path to take through the narrow tree entrance to the more open area where the basket is.
- My favorite hole is #7. It has a beautiful layout and I loved throwing out over the water to have it fade back at the basket.
- This not a destination course, but if you are in the area it's fine to stop and do a round. If you have never played disc golf on a golf course then I would suggest making the trip here just for the experience.
