When You Can't Find Your Way Around A 6 Hole Course?
Pros: Candlelight Park is a fairly long but narrow little park. The park has somewhat of a slope from the top to the far end. The baskets are brand new Discatchers with the yellow band. There were small rubber mats for tee pads and no signs as of yet.
With no signs and no map, I was left to figure out the layout by myself. I'm not sure if I ever got it right.
I started at the lower end near the parking lot and played to the basket by the middle lot?
# 2 basket is then about 250' up the park with the street just six on your left.
I couldn't find any pad for # 3 but then found a very faint painted mark on the BB court and played to the basket at the very top end of the park.
Then up in this corner I found two tee pads just a few feet from one another. I'm confused! But I just played them both at the same time as 4 and 5 and threw to two baskets halfway down the park. There is a fence on your left with nasty rough and water that will eat many a hyzer discs from the beginners who might be playing this course.
Cons: I think you're probably just going to have play this course as a Safari layout.
Being such a small, narrow park, beginners will have a difficult time keeping their discs in play. I see lot's of discs flying over the fence on 4-5.
Needs signs badly.
Short and only 6 holes.
Loud barking dogs in neighbor's yard. Keep em chained up, lady!
Other Thoughts: I almost always enjoy these little beginner courses stuck in some neighborhood park. If the navigation issues could be addressed, this would be a fun little throw, especially for beginners or children. But until some kind of signage is put up, I found it to be mostly a waste of time.
It does make for a very quick 20 minute round and an easy score for a course-bagger such as myself.
Note: I'll be glad to add another .5 to my rating if signs are ever installed.
