Pros: Roy Lake Campground is located right next to Roy Lake. It's your normal state park type campground with scattered mature trees, nice green grass open space in between and not much underbrush to contend with. It's almost totally flat (it is in South Dakota) but will give you a pretty good challenge. I always wonder about these campground courses? Who are they designed for? The average camper isn't a disc golfer and very few disc golfers seem to come into the campgrounds to play these courses. You can tell that this course hasn't seen many golfers. It has Discatcher baskets with the red numbers on top. The pads are natural dirt but because they are relatively unused, they are flat and smooth. There are little poles sticking out of the ground with the hole number on it and a board at the front of the teebox. The holes range in distance from 203 feet to 383 feet. The pars on the on-line map give the pars in Junior High or Campground terms. As in # 6 at 370 feet is listed as a par 5 and # 5, 215 feet is listed as a par 4. You can play this listed pars and try to rack up the eagles and maybe even that exclusive double eagle and you can be boring and play them all as par 3's, suit yourself.
Cons: For being a campground course and susposedly aiming at campers, #'s 3, 4 and 5 all play along the lake and newbies would probably have a great chance of hysering one into the lake or thick lakeside bushes. The # 8 teepad is currently in a marsh. It should be moved approx 15 to the right.
Other Thoughts: The nearest course is 43.8 miles away. I think that makes this the only game in town. If I lived with in a 20 miles radius, I guess I'd buy a pass to the park. It's not the greatest course in the world but it's the greatest course around here.
