This technically challenging, medium length course winds thru rock-filled terrain dominated by cedar and hickory and the course's namesake the ''Flying Dragon' which is a wickedly beautiful thorny bush (Poncirus Trifoliate) that produces bitter oranges in the fall.

Although these plants and the moss and fern covered boulders provide great scenery, they can also quickly turn a birdie opportunity into a double bogie, so bring your A (for Accuracy) game!

We also have a very popular warmup area with 2 baskets a short distance apart, great for practicing your short game.

Location

Jack Allen Soccer Complex 2616 Modaus Rd. Decatur, 35603 Alabama
Local Directions:

From Highway 67 (Beltline Road) in Decatur, turn onto Modaus Road. Go straight for 1.9 miles (4th traffic light) & turn right at the stoplight onto park entrance road (Recreation Dr.) for Jack Allen Soccer Complex. The course is inside this park.

If the gate is closed, park there and walk up the road to the top of the hill. Then turn left into the gravel parking lot. You will find hole one tee box about 80 yards on the left. Two warm up baskets are off to the right in the grassy area beside the parking lot. Or just watch for the sign to tee box #3 and start there.

If there is a soccer tournament going on, just tell them that you are there to play disc golf and you do not have to pay to get into the park.
