Nice 9 Holer!!
Pros: Nice long holes. Couple of wide open holes. A short hole thats ace-able! Nice concrete tees.
Cons: JOGGERS!! There is an actual jogging path, but these runners think the disc golf course is their path!! They will run right by you as your are running up the tee box to throw. Other than that, nothin!

Pros: Work right and left turns. Work on threading the needle. Give it a ride on #3 and #7 (unless you're a disc cannon).
Mix of open and wooded. Never crowded.
Cons: This summer, the over-abundance of rain has done TWO nasty things to this course: ditches are full but can't hold all the water -- the viny undergrowth grows a foot a day.
Other Thoughts: Course was originally planned to be 18.
Parks Dept ran out of funds before they finished.
Plans to finish the course have been shelved. Instead, a championship-quality course is slated for nearby Frank Liske Park. Reportedly, 18 holes with two longer than 800'.
Don't dis N Cabarrus. It's a really good 9-hole. It's not Bradford or Brackett's but it's not Dorton either.
Park closes at 5 in the winter and 8 in the summer.
BIG NEWS! As a result of suggestions made by tournament participants, #4 has had the left side bamboo trimmed! It's still tough, but possible.
By the way, there have been 4 unsanctioned, but fun tournaments here.

Great 9 hole course
Pros: Great variety of shots. Half of the time you're in the woods and half the time your in the open field. Advanced players will stay entertained while beginners will not despair. Well maintained, safe park. All tee signs have been moved to the side or behind the pads. Funds are being raised to make this an 18 hole course.
Cons: I've never gotten par on hole 4 (par 3), and hole 6 is barely 100 ft (also par 3). Some holes get sloppy after it rains, but they pour gravel in the worst spots from time to time - still don't play after a big rain. Little elevation change, but that's because the whole park is fairly level to begin with. This park has tons people walking on the main loop. An errant throw could be dangerous, but you'd really have to shank one. Even though there are always people playing golf, some people still like to walk on the fairways. Had one group walking towards us on #6 take their sweet time, and just when we thought they were going to be out of our way, they stopped just in front of the tee to look at the creek.
Other Thoughts: First Tee is 150 feet directly behind the Bathrooms
Hole 1 - tee pad tilted uphill. Keep straight and under the Oak tree's branches and you'll be in good shape.
Hole 2 - throwing between two wooded areas then left to the hole. Beautiful for RHBH.
Hole 3 - par 4 - let 'r rip! If it just rained, make sure you get over the water in the ditch; It's not deep, but I've seen people lose their disc.
Hole 4 - Throw into the opening in the bamboo; do not stray from the path! Once you're in the woods, throw your straightest disc, keep it low, and say a prayer that it ends up puttable.
Hole 5 - Long slow left curve next to a creek. If you go right...your in the creek. If you throw a roller...your in the creek. If you go left you'll end up lumberjacking your way to the basket.
Hole 6 - 100 ft dogleg left to the basket. I figure they put this here to raise your spirits after the last 2 holes.
Hole 7 - par 4 - Grip and rip. Basket is just over the crest tof the hill. Easy to over-throw your approach.
Hole 8 - great for LHBH narrow dogleg right; gets wider the closer you get to the basket. Miss to the left if you can't stay in the clearing... at least then you'll still have a clear shot.
Hole 9 - level, open field with the basket straight ahead.

My 3rd favorite 9 hole course
Pros: - Best pro was the course flow, sidewalks and gravel paths lead you right to the next tee.
- Easy to find park in and pleasant environment
- Restrooms, vending machines, grills, kids play areas.
- Surprisingly large concrete tee pads.
- Superb maintenance
- Variety in distances and hole layout.
- Bright Discatchers are easy to see and in great shape.
Cons: - Hole 6 is a super short ace run that kills the excitement from the too nice holes prior. Hole info says 175, but it seems more like a 90ft left hook. (sign is gone)
No alternate tees or basket locations were noticed., with alternate tees this course could have rivaled some of the best 9 holers I have played.
Other Thoughts: - Course opens at 9:00 during winter, in March it opens at 8:00. a sign warns that you can be prosecuted if you try to sneak in early or play after close.
- I looked over at the land where the next potential 9 could go, there is A LOT of potential with nice elevation changes and a good amount of land and foliage, when this is a 9 holer it can rival some of the area greats.
- Most maintenance is done by Sr. Ranger Doug Buckner, who seems to really care about the sport and would be interested in finding a local who would consider running a local club, kids clinic, or even giving input on the next 9 holes.
- When choosing what discs to bring consider:
1. 215 very slight left
2. 265 downhill with bush on the left, plays like a 220
3. 473 wide open
4. 279 through a tunnel of trees
5. 240 down stone path, blind shot with fence on the right. Wooded, but nice fairway.
6. super short hard left. Moderately wooded, but decent fairway.
7. 347 wide open over a hill.
8. 340 moderately wooded. Straight for about 180 ft then right turn.
9. 310 open and straight.
