Disc Golf at the campus
Pros: The course is located at the outside campus of the TU Darmstadt and offers a cool layout with nice surroundings.
Ob's and tight tree passages impede your play together with the average length of 280ft/85m+ and an island-hole .
I liked the placement of some baskets and even though the flow was not 100% perfect, the layout was elabored, complex and always fun to play.
Baskets/teesigns were in good condition and navigating was quite easy.
Some people were taking their dogs for a walk/jogging but i would not say that traffic is a big problem. You might have to wait at certain holes sometimes for people passing by but rarely.
Even though there were some dogs around, the area seemed clean and kept well.
Cons: Some benches are placed alongside particular holes making them !at least! uncomfortable to play when taken.
(Im not sure about the conditions in summer but it might be a bit more crowded)
Most tees were in good/ok condition but some were worn badly.
Although the layout is good and challenging the lack of elevation is noticeable. It's not vast but during play it feels like something is missing.
Other Thoughts: The course-area still has a lot of potential to grow and modify.
Definitely an advisable course for beginners as well as advanced players.
Worth to play a couple of rounds.
As the course is right at the campus, it is good to reach with public transportation.
Parking your car is possible right in front of the course map close to tee #1, but you have to pay about 2-3€ (whole day).
2 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: The biggest pro that this course has is that it's new with excellent quality baskets and tee signs. It's a great use of the land there.
When I played there this morning, the fairways were mowed and the course was in good condition. I wouldn't be surprised if they're not always mowed though.
Cons: This is a pretty boring course. The land is flat with 0 elevation change and most of the holes are very open. There's no creative 'signature hole' to make this course memorable.
The weeds on the sides of the fairways or behind the greens are really thick and stinging nettles are abundant.
This land is filled with non-disc golf players, so you need to watch out when you're throwing.
Course flow is a little awkward sometimes, so make sure to print or take a picture of the map!
Other Thoughts: I don't think I'll be coming back here again. I played two rounds and found it to be pretty monotonous.
