Rustic Course At Christian Camp Needs Work!
Pros: Sunrise Bay DGC is located at Pinelow Park and Conference Center located on the shores of lovely Lake Loon. This is a christian camp and retreat so no drugs or alcohol are permitted. You need to stop by the directors office's and pay Doyle a daily use fee of $5.
The 18 hole course starts down near the lakeside, then plays through the cabins, back through a wooded area before finishing back near the director's office. The course features homemade baskets, many of which were not in the best of shape. There are simple carved tee signs giving the hole # and the tee off area in green and the basket position in red. There are no tee pads of any type.
The course does provide some decent challenge in it's overall length and in the technical nature of throwing through, around and over the trees. Unfortunately, since the course was designed for novice players; ie. campers, these challenges will only frustrate any beginning type player.
Cons: The baskets are not good to start with and then a few of them have vandalized. Not having tee pads is also a problem.
#'s 15 and 16 are both holes where you are just throwing through a thicket of small trees and brush. There is no fair route to the basket. A little clearing would help make these holes more fair.
Other Thoughts: Doyle (Park and Conference Center Director) was told by a "former frisbee champion" that this is the most difficult course in the state. I think this "former frisbee champion" was the one who designed this course. Maybe the "former frisbee champion" played this course using the old "Whamo" plastic from the 70's. Maybe the "former frisbee champion" ingested too many magic mushrooms back in the 60's.
While the course does feature a fair amount of challenge, I'd rate it as an average recreational course on the challenge meter and well below that on the overall rating scale. Unless you're a serious course bagger such as myself, you probably want to skip this out of the way stop on the tour.
