Great Course, Very Close to CU Campus
Pros: This was only my second time on a disc golf course, but it was a very fun course. The first few holes are wooded, the middle of the course is wide open, and the last four or five holes have some interesting turns and obstacles that you have to negotiate.
Cons: The only con I found on the course today was that there was a lot of mud from the main field's use as a parking lot for a football game from two days prior. It was a wet weekend, so there was more mud than normal.
Other Thoughts: I liked the course a lot. Given the opportunity and a bit more time, I would have played it again. I didn't mind the lack of concrete tee pads, and most of the holes were easy enough to find. You could probably get a lot of college kids into the sport with this course being so close to the University Campus.
Longest in the Area
Pros: It's nice and close to the Clemson campus. There's a swimming beach and nice views of the lake.
Two sets of tees on most holes and some nice 'touch' shots at the beginning of the course. It's also a longer course and more wide open than most, giving a reason to work on distance without having to worry as much about which way it goes.
Cons: Other than the first three or four holes, the course is a bit boring with mostly open shots with little obstacles to worry about. It's also not open to play on Saturdays in the fall during home Clemson football games...fans park on the course.
Other Thoughts: Not as easy to follow...with only markers on the ground. Could really become a nice course with a few small changes...could be moving some tees or basket locations to take better advantage of the limited trees and use the elevation changes better.
3 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Orange holes, Great location, First real and official Clemson University course
Cons: Still a work in progress.. Signs and tee-boxes are not going to happen because they use the area for parking during football season.. No use of the water (with the lake surrounding the area, I wish there was more of a lake-front feel to this course)
Other Thoughts: Like I said, still a work in progress- as this course evolves, it will be amazing. Tee-markers are going in (orange and purple for pro/am tee's) Search Facebook for "Clemson Disc Golf" and join the group- maps of the course are available there)
