Greenville beginner Course
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: The layout of the course is really easy to follow, it just simply circles the whole park around the perimeter of the wood line. To the right of hole one there is also a practice basket which is cool. Chances are you won't lose a disc playing this course either because its pretty open. For beginners this is a great course to learn on and it doesnt seem to be too busy. There is a variety of simple shots with dogleg shots that go both left and right.
Cons: The course could really use cement tee pads which would make it better, but is ok without them. The scoring on all the holes vary from par 3 to 5, in reality to make all the holes hard every hole has to be played as par 3's. Hole 8 is 309 feet and is considered a par 5, its too simple to be a par 5. The course should have implemented the woods to make an awesome 18 hole with water holes and tunnel shots. The practice basket works but one side of the basket is badly bent from a lawnmower accident or something along those lines.
Other Thoughts: The park offers a lot of other amenities to keep everyone entertained. If the designers of this course had taken more time it could have been designed to incorporate some of the woods to make it a full 18 if they did it right to play around the bike trails. I think that would bring a lot more DG players to Greenville and would make it an awesome course.
Lately since there isn't any softball tournaments I've been playing the practice basket as a 10th hole. After playing hole nine we walk over between the right side of the community center and the softball field and throw next to the community center behind the guard rail. It makes for about a 200 foot hole that doglegs to the right around ball field.

Good Enough for Greenville
Pros: Enough distance to get some good drives in.
Cons: Trees where you start and trees where the traps are. Weird angles. Fences. Play through quickly so a few rounds to make it worth while.
Other Thoughts: I live in Portage where there are quite a few courses so I'm used to better but at least it is something. I like how nobody in the area seems to play, so I got it all to myself. Snakes, lots of them!
