Wet, very wet
Pros: 1. Not crowded at all
2. Pine trees create unique challenges for pars
Cons: 1. Low ground is often mushy from rain.
2. Lots of fire ant beds next to pines These critters hurt!
3. Seed pods stick to socks and sneakers
4. Gravel on tees needs to be packed tightly.
5. Grass should be mowed at least once per week.
Other Thoughts: Base entomology technicians should heavily spray insecticide to kill fire ants and mosquitoes.
Trees and limbs make a short course challenging.
Tees should be improved with red clay,
mechanically tamped down to create firm surface for the run up.
Outdoor Rec has a programmer, Erik Dahl, who is committed to some significant course improvements.
Post'l Point Disc Golf Course
1 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: -Well maintained
-Variety of long and short holes (150ish-425ft)
-Variety of doglegs right and left
-Plenty of obstacles
Cons: -Signage needs improvement
Other Thoughts: The Post'l Point Disc Golf Course is an excellent course on Eglin AFB, and is well worth the trip to play, if you have base access. No water holes on this course means that losing a disc is pretty hard, unless you put it up in a tree.
Easiest Hole: #6. A nice dogleg right for LHBH throwers sets you up for a par on this short hole, at worst. A good chance for an ace as well.
Hardest Hole: #10. Four Hundred and twenty-five feet in length, hole 10 begins right outside of a copse of trees, and finishes inside of another grove of trees. No birdie chances, and very easy to bogey.
Birdie chances abound, but so do bogeys, and the multitude of trees add to the difficulty of the course.
Overall, a great course!

Pros: Not much pedestrian traffic with only random walkers/joggers unless there is a 5K race scheduled. Good course for a beginner as most holes are >200' with a handful being marked 250-300' but seem shorter. 1 long hole (10) that will let you air out your distance driver. Baskets, Mach 3's, are new and most are in good shape. The biggest "PRO" is that Outdoor Rec knows there are issues and management is open to making changes and improvements including concrete tee pads, moving/expanding holes, etc. are on the radar for course improvements.
Cons: SMALL course, several shots ~150' and hole placement can make it difficult to know exactly which of the 3 or 4 baskets you can see from some of the tee pads you are throwing at. Speaking of that, if there's more than a handful of people playing WATCH OUT for errant, or not so errant shots when you're putting out or teeing off for that matter on at least 14 basket/tees!! Keep your head on a swivel if you're not out there alone. You'll also need to be able to get on Eglin AFB or have a buddy that can sign you in if you want to play this course. Easy to get lost on the transition from hole 9 to 10. 10's tee area is almost directly across from 9's teeing area so you have to come back up and cross the road over to 10's tee. everything elses is somewhat easy to follow. Sinage is available on some holes but all are printed paper in standard sheet protectors taped to very thin plexiglass sheets. some are missing or totally gone including the broken plexiglass that can be found on the ground by several tee sign poles.
Other Thoughts: Improvements have been promised and should be in the works. This could have been a GREAT 9 hole course but 18 holes were shoehorned into a tiny plot of land.
LASTLY ... if you are at the course, remember you're on a military facility. Don't sign the baskets for your "aces" sign your own discs! Also DON'T bring your medicinal items you don't have perscriptions for (legal in FLORIDA) as the base does frequently use this area for dog training/exercises.

A nice course in the making
4 Helpful / 5 Not
Pros: Nice course next to the ocean. Great for beginners and other levels with various ways to approach each hole. has some short holes and a few long holes to let your disk fly. No walkers or other pedestrians to get in the way.
Cons: A new course with no tee boxes and confusing paper signs. A bit confusing to find where to tee off and which hole to shoot for. Some holes are very close to location to tee off which can be trouble if not careful.
Other Thoughts: With a little work and new additions this could be a great course. The wind from the ocean adds to the challenge on some holes.
