It was. Once. I don't think a tourney has been run there for a long time. MOB ran 1 event there in 2010, none since.

It's worth it to check it off the list, if you're into that kind of thing.

I go to East Harbor many times throughout the year. Swimming, camping, just taking a drive, visiting family in Port Clinton and Marblehead, etc, yet I still have not taken discs with me. EVERYONE I know that has played it says it's simply not worth it.
If I was to play it in the summer, I would just play the playable holes. I think you could get at least 9 playable holes out of it.

You know, I don't always agree with his reviews but man he comes up with great one liners now and then.

Bogey's review of Panther Creek pretty much sums it up https://www.dgcoursereview.com/revie...mode=rev#80822

This was part of my response to a local course designer who wanted to explain away the flaws with his "baby" and call it a 5-disc course when it simply was, and is, not.

A LOT of hard work has been put in to clear brush, etc. I understand that this work is done by volunteers, so kudos to them. However, that doesn't mean this is a good course, and it doesn't mean there isn't a lot of work that still needs to be done. When I order a meal in a restaurant, my rating/satisfaction is based on the quality of the food and is not influenced by any struggles or limitations in the kitchen, etc. Why something is a "con" doesn't make it not a con. The course rating should be based on what is, and is not, there. The reasons should not affect the rating.

Those are my words, so I'm biased, but if every reviewer used that standard, the quality of reviews would go up significantly.

I loved Bogey's review of Panther Creek. It's a tough course that I love-hate and can't wait to play again. It's part of the Tennessee State Championships at the end of May, and since McBeth is registered for that event I bet we'll get to see it on video.

aclay- I agree. I solo designed my first course last year, went in the ground december, and I am fully aware of it's shortcomings. I can explain why they are the way they are, but won't try to get credit for what could've been the design. I can't add hills to a place (though I did use the ones I could find), and I can't ask a private course to put in full concrete tees when they took a year to raise the money for the baskets in the first place. So I think you're being fair, and I ask that people who review are fair as well (but I do hope they wait till the end of summer when tee signs get installed)

Baysinger's DG channel is going to be there, asked him about it in the GBO chat. Not sure if anyone else is going to be. Marty used to do it but he isn't filming anymore.

I first noticed the name of the course and had a good chuckle...

Dinglewood Disc Golf...https://www.dgcoursereview.com/revie...mode=rev#80853


Then I noticed who wrote the review... wellsbranch...and he didn't disappoint...


Best review title ever?
