Teeny tiny "park"
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -Nice, small park in Rock Hill with an easy disc golf course in a very nice neighborhood, not sketchy or anything.
-You can play 4 rounds here in less than an hour because it's very short.
-It's short but every hole can blow your birdie, for example, #1, you can't throw straight, #2 is a good bit downhill and has a dropoff and #5 is slightly uphill with a bunch of trees and ya have no line. Thing is, every hole can stop you from getting a birdie except #7. You really should birdie that one.
-#2 is pretty fun! It plays nicely downhill and has a dropoff, it's fun AND aceable, like #15 at South Mountain. #9 is also interesting, it's a dogleg left that goes into the woods.
-Baskets are 17 to 18 years old and they catch very well still. I got a hole in one on #7 so it shows that they catch well enough.
-Nice, mild challenge for beginners considering the fact that it's wooded.
-Arrows pointing back where the long tees are. The front tees are blue and the longs are yellow.
-Long tees so it can be a bit more interesting.
Cons: -Mainly, the "Parking lot" is tiny, only a few parking spots and a couple were reserved. It felt like pulling into a driveway and playing in a man's backyard which was an interesting layout but lack of parking spots.
-As a freshman in high school, I was frustrated that the front office wasn't open on weekdays. So no bathrooms on the weekends.
-#4's long tee was pointless. It's only maybe 4 feet behind the short tee.
-18 years old and has no teepads, only 18 inch carpet and the longs have no teepads at all. -Course seems to be neglected since the baskets are very old and there still are not real teepads. I don't think this "park" is good for a dg course.
-#2's long tee crosses #9's green.
-No benches or trashcans but they aren't really needed despite the course being really short.
-#7 isn't a real hole. It's got about a four to five foot drop and it's only 65'. It's just a long putt with a 0/10 challenge.
Other Thoughts: Overall, the course was super easy with a couple nicely designed holes for the small space availible for the course. I thought it was boring but I was happy that I got a 1 on #7 even though it's 65 feet long, It definitely has potential to get a higher rating if it gets maintained better. I woundn't consider it good but it was it okay place to practice your approach shots but since I got a hole in one, I don't think I'm coming back. It will get boring quickly.

Just for practice
Pros: Very short course good for pitch and putt practice. many aceable / par at worst holes. If you have young kids take them here to give them confidence.
Cons: Course layout seems very basic and not well thought out. Baskets are in rough shape. Holes can be boring and basic after playing it once.
Other Thoughts: DO NOT go here if you want a challenging course. Use this course for sharpening short game skills only!

Pros: good for putt and approach practice, a good place to bring a new player. little park in a nice neighborhood.
Cons: too short, the baskets looked acient, maybe mach 1's. every hole had someones name on them and how they aced that hole...whoppty doo.
Other Thoughts: i went here just to check it out, that being said, i wont be back. if you are in rock hill and want to play a 9 hole course, goto tirzah church or the high school.

You won't believe it til you see it
Pros: Good place to work on your approach and putting.
Cons: Small, short, not much of a challenge. More like a Pitch and Putt.
Other Thoughts: As long as you don't expect much, this can be fun. Only 9 holes. The total area is probably less than 5 acres.

Enjoyable pitch-n-putt course

Pros: Fewell is the ultimate pitch and putt course. Only 1 hole is over 200 feet.
- Leave the bag in the car. Seriously, if you bring a bag, it will slow you down on this course. You're much better off carrying the 2 or 3 discs you'll actually use on these holes.
- 9 baskets, dual tees make it 18. 2nd set of tees at least give some challenge. And by challenge, I mean, you'll actually have to do a little work for birdies.
- Birdies galore on this course, especially on the short layout. You can take aim for the basket on every hole, making plenty of ace runs. You shouldn't be penalized too much for overaggressive play. Barring bad bounces off trees, or missed putts, shouldn't see many, if any, bogeys on a scorecard.
- Quick, easy rounds. Played 36 holes in under an hour. As such, this is the type of course you bring kids or first time players to. And with so many short holes, even the greenest of players should have chances for birdies.
- Nice, little neighborhood park. There's a nice playground, walking trails and tennis courts here. Good course to practice your short game on.
Cons: Baskets are in bad shape. Several are dented and crooked. Yet in some way, that adds a slight challenge.
- Dirt tee pads. Not a major issue because run-ups aren't needed for short shots.
- Course is cramped. Holes come real close to overlapping. If the course is crowded, could pose a real issue.
- Hard to take any course with a 65 foot hole seriously. I could only see two of these holes realistically ever being used on a traditional, advanced level (non pitch & putt ) course. And even with that, they'd still probably be the easiest holes on a more advanced course.
Other Thoughts: For such a poorly kept course, it actually wasn't that bad to play. You gotta enjoy birdies no matter how easy the course.
- Course is great to introduce kids to the game. Good course for the casual player, clearly not for the serious player.
- It's probably a good course to use as a warm up before tackling Winthrop. Other than that, or if you don't live nearby, you don't need to go out of your way to play.
- Perfect course for an ace race, skins match, one-disc challenge or other type of games to play.
