18 baskets!! Still a work in progress...
Pros: Now it's got 18 permanent baskets and uses the whole park for play.
There's quite a bit of elevation change in this park. It's not constantly changing but when you're going up hill or down hill, you'll know it.
Still has the same front 9 layout as before. The back 9 being a little bit more open than the front. Still a good amount of trees, except for hole 13(WIDE open).
A couple of island shots on holes 15 & 17. I'd assume a lie on the road would be O.B. for these holes.
Good variety of shots and conditions. The open holes are fairly windy and long. A few short but tight wooded shots. Most of the back 9 holds low ceilings so it helps to keep em low.
All the times I've played here, I've never played in grass taller than my ankles so the park maintenance is great.
Cons: First off, if it wasn't for the map on the course's Facebook Page, I would have been a little off. This course has decent flow but a few tee spots are not where you'd think they'd be. Now that it's a permanent 18 hole course, getting pads and/or signs should be a priority. I had several other players ask me where to tee off on the back 9. Even with the map, I wasn't completely sure if I was in the right place.
Watch your footing on hole #3, the brush/tree stumps are still sticking out of the ground. Not a big deal but wouldn't want anyone getting tripped up or a rolled ankle.
A couple of bridges or crossings on holes 10 & 11 maybe another one on 13 would be nice.
The reason for the bridges would be in case of rain run-off. After a rain, holes 5 & 6 get pretty swampy anyway. Not much anyone can do with the swamp though. Best advice is to not land in it.
If the original tee placement for #9 is the same place it was before, then #8 & #9 cross each other. Could be a hazard if someone bombs one in that area.
This might be more of an idea/opinion than a problem but the places where the steps are dug out to go up/down the steeper grades, maybe use some sheets of limestone rock to make for better footing. I don't mind the dirt but if this is going to be a high traffic course or even playing in wet conditions, these places are going to be ate up quickly also very slick to be walking on.
Not a crazy amount of parking. Doesn't seem to be a problem yet.
Other Thoughts: Check out Concordia Disc Golf Facebook page for info and to look at the layout for the new 18 hole course.
Definitely worth the trip because you can hit up Miltonvale while in the area too. Two awesome courses all located in Cloud County.
I'd rate this as a 4 if it had tee signs and maybe a 4.5 with signs and solid tee pads.
Come let em fly at the Airport!!!!!
