Description: La Vista is located in a beautiful 90+ acre park on the Mississippi River bluffs. Itís a quiet, calm, and great place to lose your mind and find your soul while playing a round of Disc Golf or just enjoying the scenery.
The course is full of rolling hills and is approximately 2/3 open and 1/3 wooded. The majority of the open holes have greens tucked just inside the wood line or deeper. Most of the greens are on a sloped terrain but typically wonít result in anything more then a 15í comeback putt if you miss your first putt. Several of the baskets are blind because of distance and or the lay of the land but the maps on the tee sign are great for determining pin location. The course features 3 sets of tee pads (white concrete, red & blue natural) and 3 pin placements. Park Department is in the process of building permanent bathrooms but has a Porta potty on site.
The wooded holes are hilly and range from 200-420í with tight lines and a few protected baskets. The open holes are 300-750í and utilize the wood line to provide more of a challenge or are pushed back into the woods 150-200í for the C pin placements. As for types of shots, the course is balanced and doesnít show any favoritism for one type of player/shot over the other. The white tee pads have a map on each tee sign while the reds and blue tee sign show distance and par. The course has a great flow and uses arrows as well as numbered signs to help get you to the next tee. We tried to minimize walking back out of the hole with trails going to the next tee but there are a couple greens that require it (2, 4, & 8). This course will test every level of player while utilizing all the disc in your bag.
Check out Bluff City Disc Golf page on FB for more info.
NOTE: The course is still new and has had several changes over the past year where things may have been a bit confusing or unfinished at times. Those include changing holes 17 & 18 for safety reasons and moving tee pads to find a level spot for concrete. I apologize for any issues you may have had because of these changes and upgrades. Those issues have been addressed and corrected. Please keep this in mind when submitting your review.
