I'd love to but I've sold off a few. They're my main putter and a stack for the backyard. Sorry

Here's PDGA list of approved discs from that era...Innova only. I think you can search other manufacturers.

We used to read all about how great it was in Disc Golf World News. I think it was as widely known as a course could be at the time.

Trying to get a handle on the layout...was it a lefty course
? Been throwing frisbees around since the early 70's, but with no real purpose.

The course would change each time because of the trees. Some got bigger others were cut down so the same tees and pin locations had new routes to learn.

Like 3-Putt said it was one of the most famous courses of that era.

This made me wonder if a course that is, say 3 1/2 stars today, was considered a 5 star course back in that day. Maybe not, but we have come a ways so it made me curious.
