Come for the Biking, but stay for the Discing.
Pros: This is a somewhat interesting course that is perfect for beginners. The tee areas are well marked, the route through the course is obvious, and the layout manages to avoid throws that might be dangerous to other park users. The lack of any real consequences from errant throws and minimal risk of lost discs will keep beginners throwing happily and mostly frustration-free.
The entire park is exceedingly clean and well tended. The port-a-johns are almost always spotless, and there are picnic tables available for "just hangin' out".
A second round here showed this course is deceptive in its simplicity. Drives under and around trees; ball field, tennis court, and road OBs; and several blind dogleg fairways means this little course plays harder than it looks. #6 in particular appears to be a short straight drive, but undulating terrain and prevailing winds make it tougher than you'd otherwise think.
Cons: The simple layout and mostly open terrain will have more experienced players yawning by hole #4. No trick shots needed here.....a basic ability to control turn and fade, and a solid putt will have you making par or birdies on most of these holes.
Low lying areas with a clay base means you'll be slogging through standing water after any major rains.
Other Thoughts: Come to Greenville for the most excellent mountain biking!!! Ride a loop on the intermediate to advanced Edward's Creek trail (trailhead at the Walnut St entrance to Alan G Davis Park), have a snack, play a round of DG, then ride the well-marked paved connector trail to the Shearer Rd trail. Ride a loop (or 2) on this beginner to intermediate trail, then follow the signs back to Davis park. On a hot day, stop at DQ before leaving town, then follow the signs to the hospital, jog around the back side, and keep going down the hill to the cute park on the lake for a dip to cool off - an awesome end to a perfect day!!!
