Default Course Design Help!



I have been trying to design a course on a local park, it's about 71 acres of land but all flat and open. The only hill in the entire park is the zig-zag path in the middle, other than that not more than two feet of elevation change it seems like across the whole park.

I know to start near the parking lot, but It's odd not knowing which direction to go. Usually when I design courses, the land gives me something, but this open??? I can't see where to go or what to do. any suggestions would be great. thanks.

for some reason the image might not work. here's a link. http://tinypic.com/r/sz7xnc/5

I can use the woods, but there's not much, one maybe two holes that could fit back there, not sure how much clearing I could do with it anyway. I'll have to move on from this project I guess

Being that open I'd go with a 9 holer or it will just get repetitive. You put two or three in the woods and the other six out in the open. Entire holes don't have to be in the woods, you can have one coming out of the woods and maybe one going in then one completely in the woods.

I'd try and utilize the pond and available trees. You also have alot of walking paths that you can use to frame fairways and create OB. You might want to avoid some of that artsy sculpture stuff if you can. And as far as the woods goes its a pretty good distance from the lot, @1300feet to get over to it or @ 3 holes worth of fairways to get there.
Oh and I'd design around the outside of that circle as opposed to having anything inside it.

Looks to me like a bad place for a disc golf course. Do you have anywhere else you could design a course?
