A little disappointing.
Pros: Nice cement tees. There were lots of trees and hills, a fairly challenging course. You will get your exercise playing this one, but you won't end up winded.
Cons: There were, as often happens at disc golf courses, no maps, so it was difficult to find the first tee.
There are some pretty astringent rules at this course, which is great; but there were two which we didn't know about which caused us to have to leave. Where we are from in NE, the rules are fairly relaxed. Basically:
* If you play slower than those behind you, let them play through.
*It's ok to throw while others are playing at a long tee, as long as they are well out of range.
At this course, we didn't know it, but here are the two rules which ended up getting us impolitely booted from the course for the day.
*No more than 3 people playing together at a given hole. (we have 7 people, so someone would always have to throw alone)
*Absolutely no throwing until the people ahead of you are finished throwing, no exceptions.
Being from a more relaxed environment and not knowing the rules of the course, this was disappointing.
Aside from that, there was glass on the ground at virtually every tee we did get to play. It was generally not a good experience.
Other Thoughts: This course has the potential to be a lot of fun, but needs some clean up, and some more trash cans.
Amarillo has plenty of places for disc golf courses. We lived in an area that had 7 courses within an hours drive, 2 of which were very challenging, one was a PDGA course. There needs to be more courses put in this very large city for variety.
There are 3 other courses within 1.5 hrs. drive, but nothing close.
