Soaring Teebirds and Bald Eagles
Pros: This temporary course was set up in a large lakeside park. The park features huge meadows with trees scattered around allowing for nice fairways with obstacles. Much of the park is marshy during the winter but the designer (Mr. Cefire himself!) did a good job of skirting the swampiest areas. Ground vegetation is mostly grass and weeds. There were not too many disc eating bushes on the course and we did not have to spend much time looking for discs. This course has a nice variety of open and tight, long and short, left turn and right turn holes. You need a bunch of different shots to successfully complete the course, which favored experienced players. That said, the course was easy enough and Andrew made some of the longer holes par 4 which made them seem less difficult. Andrew also did a good job of using the available pavement as tee pads. This meant that there were only a few natural pads and most of them did not get really torn up during the rounds. Bald eagles nesting in the area and flying by periodically provided a welcome distraction to the tournament. Several holes had awesome view of the lake. Overall, this is a place where you could get used to playing disc golf.
Cons: The marsh areas on the course can be very marshy. Andrew did a nice job keeping the main fairways away from those soft areas. Also wind was a factor the day of the tournament as the wind was whipping in from the lake. Several holes have no cover from the wind at all. Wind would likely be a factor for much of the year. This may not be a con if you like playing in the wind. My wind assisted discs found their way into several trees that I would not have otherwise hit. In better weather, several holes could be impacted by nearby walking traffic. We were fortunate that the cold weather kept most people away from the park.
Other Thoughts: A beautiful park for disc golf. If Andrew does this again next year, you should come!
