Great course in a great park
Pros: UPDATE: I figured it is time to update my review of this course from a couple years ago. There have been many recent improvements to this already great course. There are not any holes that share baskets anymore. This course is now 21 complete holes, 20 with concrete tee pads. The recent upgrades include several added baskets and tee pads. When I first seen the new course map I was hoping that they hadn't just stuck extra holes in and ruined the course. After getting to play it today that is not the case at all. The redesigned course is just as great, if not better, than the original. With this new set-up, tournaments could now be hosted here. Make a point to stop by in you are around, you will not be disappointed!
Cons: A couple of the newly installed tee pads are a bit short, hole 11 comes to mind for sure.
Other Thoughts: You should definitely give this course a play if you are in the area, or feel the need to travel to play a new course. I live 15 min away, shoot me a message if you want someone to play with, maybe I will be available.
Fun course despite some confusion
Pros: This course sits away from almost all other activities in a medium sized park. The tee pads are in good condition for the ones that are there and all tee signs are present. Course has a good selection of straight, hyzers, and anhyzers to work from. The design uses the available elevation very well with some big uphills/downhills and several with nice subtle elevation changes. Course flows from open to moderately wooded and back again throughout. Most holes utilize the available trees well with defined lines to the baskets on the open holes. The wooded holes test your technical abilities although all of these holes are rather short. Higher skilled players will be challenged to hit their lines for a chance at deuce while lower skilled players will do well with par here.
Cons: First off I didn't know that multiple holes played to a single basket. The first review of this course lists which holes share baskets. I found this confusing being the first time I played there. It also doesn't stand well for when if there are a lot of people playing on different holes. The signs near the tee pads are rather small and navigating the course is difficult unless you have a keen eye. Several of the holes play over or along a walking path through the park which can be dangerous to other users of the park. This is the only other activity in the park that comes into play though. In the wooded holes on number 13-17, they are all pretty much the same distance with only minor changes between them. This doesn't add any more challenge or excitement to the course.
Other Thoughts: All and all I was happy about making the trek to play this course along with the others on this trip. Most of the holes were pretty fun to play and give a good challenge to get a deuce. Less skilled players would do well with around par or a couple over on all 18 while more skilled players have a good chance to post low scores if they're hitting their lines and putts.
Pros: Good Variety on Front 9
Beginner Friendly Yet Challenging
Well Kept in a Nice Park
Good Mix of Distance
Appropriate Obstacles - Just Enough Trees
Cons: Repetition on Holes 14 - 17
Shared baskets on 2&4, 8&10, 9&11
Roots in Tee Area on Wooded Holes
Some Fairways Cross Walking Path
Tee #3 Too Close to Fairway #4
No Course Map
Other Thoughts: When I first heard of a course that shared baskets, I did not expect much. However, Eubank City Park DGC pleasantly surprised me with its mix of challenging yet beginner friendly holes. This course starts at the left of the park and somewhat follows the walking trail clockwise around the back of the park. The front 9 makes good use of partially open areas while the back 9 is mostly in the woods. The wooded holes are a little repetative and some of the tee areas in the woods have roots that are tripping hazards. Other hazards include fairways crossing walking paths, holes sharing baskets, and tee #3 located in fairway #4. However, if you are aware of these dangers, it should be no problem avoiding them and having a fun round of disc golf. Overall, I enjoyed my experience at this course. There was a nice mix of long and short fairways. Eubank City Park DGC is a nice place for an experienced disc golfer to bring a new disc golfer and both have fun.
Just a couple of notes:
In the fall, leaves will be an issue on the back 9.
Hole #12 has a pond that is not visible from the tee.
For a quick 9 holes of disc golf, play these holes in this order: 1-2-5-6-7-8-9-12-13
