Shorty Ace Run Course
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Clean park setting with open green grass fairways. Short upshot practice course. You only need your putter & maybe a couple mid-range discs. There are a couple well paced trees on a couple holes that force you to shap your shots but no scary wooded holes. If you figure out where hole #1 is the course direction is apparent even without a map. Double chain DGA baskets in good condition. Very clean & tidy (no trash or junk laying about). A creek comes into play on a couple holes but you probably wont lose any discs here. Very good beginner's course.
Cons: Leave the long drivers at home. Only 2 holes are over 250' (average 197'). There is a paved walking trail that skirts the outer edge of the course. This brings the potential of hitting a pedestrian or two into play. Expect to wait on a walker or two. Benches are few & far between but its a pretty short, flat course so you wont really need them. Tee signs are missing on most holes. No maps. Small wood lined tee boxes with gravel base makes for loose footing. The design is a little redudant at first but gets a little more interesting as you play through the round. The course could be more interesting with multiple tee & pin locations but there is only one per hole.
Other Thoughts: This course is pretty close to my house yet I didnt even know it existed. There are people playing organized softball games. There are tennis & basketball courts & walking paths but nobody playing disc golf (?). I wasnt overly impressed when I first pulled into the parking lot but after playing the first couple holes quickly discovered that this is a great place to practice my approach shots & maybe hit an ace or two! One disc rounds & safari golf are real possibilities here. They could easily have an 'Ace race' here & they wouldnt have to change a thing!
