Pros: 18 holes.
good shade on a scorching hot day!
great use of terrain- throwing off hills, up hills, down hills.
great mix of shots: hysers, anhysers, straight ahead drives, layups, forehand, backhand, and tomahawk throws were all used during my round.
secluded. i was definitely the only one out there! [granted it was a hot sunday morning in july!]
Cons: short holes.
TONS of trees - seriously, bring your cheap discs! i spent lots of time drilling my discs in trees. my main driver i used is now completely jacked up!
no baskets. [holes are railroad ties buried on end.
dangerous tee pads- decrepit old pallets partially buried. [nice gesture, but i shot just off to the side of them for fear of twisting my ankle!]
i couldn't find info anywhere online and i had a hard time finding it. [see other thoughts]
I stumbled upon this course by accident. I was looking for the Rat Pac Disc Golf Course [http://www.ratpactrail.org/ra...discgolf.htm
in Cle Elum, WA. But using their directions online, i was unable to find it.
Having no car and a full Sunday morning in Cle Elum to kill, and itching for some Disc Golf, i asked a nice walker if she knew how to find the course. she sent me up the miner trail [starting out near the flagpole park] to the trail exit that puts you off near the roundabout. then i asked the lady at Shell how to get to the high school. after bumping around there for a bit, i finally found hole #1. i sure wish it was better marked or there was more info available for it.
but my question is this: Is there still another Disc Golf course in Cle Elum?
this one has the same type of holes as the one pictured on the Rat Pac Disc Golf website, but i didn't recognize any of the terrain. Also, the directions on the website [while they didn't lead me to their course] definitely did not or could not lead to the Cle Elum High School.
i have an email in to the course designer of the Rat Pac course, hoping for some further information.
***i uploaded many pictures with pretty descriptive captions, so please check them out!
