Vernon Schrade MS

Pros: -- Patriot baskets in good shape.
-- Tee signs with par, distance and a map of the hole that shows the few obstacles.
-- Nice distance variation: 2 holes less than 250 feet; 4 holes 300-350; 2 holes longer than 400 (No. 8 is 506).
-- Baskets are numbered; they are stick-on labels below the catching basket, so they are not visible from far away.
-- White stones with blue arrows to facilitate course navigation. Those are mostly unnecessary, but they are a nice touch.
Cons: -- Very few trees, no water and very flat ground make this far from ideal land for disc golf.
-- Tees are natural. The front is clearly marked, but the ground is SO dry that in some instances, the ground is cracked enough that trying to use the tee pad could cause an injury.
-- Long walk from 9 to 1.
-- No. 2 is the best designed hole on the course, but it's dangerous. It's 207 feet, RHBH around trees guarding the basket. However, in addition to likelihood of hitting the building (or a window), the No. 3 tee pad (right beside the building) is in danger from a slightly short hyzer shot. Look at the photo on this site from the 2 tee pad and see the people standing on the No. 3 tee pad. A slight overthrow on No. 2 could reach the parking lot or the walkway to the front of the school.
-- Not available before 4 p.m. on school days. Campus police enforce that. Also, hole 8 plays near football/soccer practice field, so you might have to skip that hole if you play during the school year.
-- No map on site.
-- No benches.
-- No restroom.
-- No water.
Other Thoughts: -- Park in front of the school and head south. No. 1 tees from near Danridge Road (front of the school), throwing west. Course then plays clockwise around the school and finishes on the other side of the parking lot.
-- This isn't a great course, but it is a course, so let's try to keep it available. I found half a dozen beer cans lying on the ground at the No. 8 tee. If that continues, I wouldn't be surprised if the school pulls the course.
-- No. 9 could be a cool finishing hole. It's 383 feet and throws over what appears to be a dry pond. If that were a pond, it would be great, but the 200-foot water carry might be too much for the middle school kids.
-- Tee signs and wooden 4x4s in ground that mark the front of the tee have different distances on about half of the holes, but the difference is generally less than 10 feet.
