Passing Through? Short, Fun Course
- Hole layouts for all holes, excluding #9, are on display beside of tees with a small guide to the next hole.
- All tees are concrete.
- For the beginner or intermediate player, this course can be both fun and challenging.
- Course is well maintained, grass mowed and other foliage cut.
- All holes are a par 3 which makes for easy score-keeping.
- For the experienced player, this course may lose its luster as most holes can be a birdie run.
- There is a small amount of litter found throughout the course, some cups and bottles.
- A couple holes are close to a nearby road, players notorious for slicing drives should be aware of passing cars.
Other Thoughts: As this is a 9-hole course, I could only judge it against other 9-hole courses. I gave this course a 2.5/5 because I feel it's true rating lies between a 2 & 2.5. Fortunately, if there were another nine holes comparable to the first, this course would become rather boring. All-in-all, I would recommend this course to beginner/intermediate players looking for a quick course with a short walk.

Not as bad as it seems!
Pros: Great for college students who attend ETSU to get out and enjoy a few holes after class. I think they did a pretty reasonable job with the land that they had. Some open and a few with tree hazards. Definitely not a place you will loose a disc on. To me, concrete tee pads and Discatchers are a huge positive for a 9 hole college course.Could easily play this course a few times in one day to get your disc golf fix. Close to town so no major back road drives to get to it. As far as the holes themselves... they didn't put some money in to the land and throw baskets up... they took the time to work out different elevation changes. Some downhill shots and some uphill shots.
Cons: Last time I played the course the brush area just after the tee pad on hole 6 was way overgrown. This hole looks nothing like what it looks like in the picture on here. There are also a few holes where I could see the potential of hitting a car or a person with a disc. Sometimes people park just along the left side of hole 1's fairway and holes 6/7 follow moderately close to the road. Keep your shots clean and you shouldnt have any problems. Also, most of the tee signs are either missing or vandalised.
Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a course to test your skills this is not the course for you. Mainly just a practice course. Not necessarily a challenging course but good for a very quick and fun round. I wouldn't take a roadtrip to play it but if you are in the area why not?! One last request would be to update the tee signs on each hole. only 9 holes so it wouldnt cost that much... i think a course with nice signage goes a long way in making it a legit course.

Pros: A very open course. It's very good for practicing or beginners. It makes good use of the space.
Cons: The course is pretty new, so grass has not grown back in many areas. It can be very muddy. It also shares space with a bike trail, so watch where you throw. I am unclear on if this course is meant to be one open to the public, but THERE IS NO PUBLIC PARKING! I was ticketed for parking in a student lot nearby the course. If you are not a student, plan on walking or not playing at this course.
Other Thoughts: I enjoy playing this course because of its convenient location. It is a much shorter drive than some of the other courses in the Tri-cities area. It is good when I am short on time or if I want to squeeze in a quick practice round. However, I am unsure if I will play it again after receiving my parking ticket. If ETSU intends this to be a course open to the public, there should be public parking.
