Indiantown Park DGC
Pros: The orginal course has been upgraded to Innova DisCatcher Pro baskets plus a practice basket near hole 1. Tee pad upgrades are expected in early 2010. They will start as 5'5" X 10' boxed frames filled with crushed stone, then rubber pads will be installed on top. There are also 36 holes at the park now. Basically 18 on each side, with old hole 9 being played either across the park entrance or back to the practice basket (approx 615'). Signage on the original 18 is also completed with 4x4 posts and Houck designed signs. The fairways have really matured and been beaten back, so the course is ready for action. The additional holes feature Murray Disc Golf FiberShot baskets, which are PDGA approved basic targets. They have been slightly modified and are going to be re-submitted for use in A and B tier events.
Cons: The new 9's on the front and back are still in the "beat in" stage. They are completely playable, there is just minimal signage at this time. Given a little time, they will offer more of what Indiantown is known for - low ceilings and precision!
If you're passing through on the RT13 corridor, it's well worth the stop to play. The CBBT can be cost prohibitive for casual play, but if load your car full of buddies and pack a picnic, it makes for a good day of disc golf. The local club runs a series of monthly tournaments as well as annual bigger events (Ice Bowl, PDGA C tier event and more...) It's worth checking out! Look it up at: www.esdgc.com
look for updated maps and info soon on the website.

Pros: This is a fun little course. The holes are tight and require that you throw well. The roughs are so thick that you disc can't go to deep. Hole nine is a true par four. Every year I work over on the Eastern Shore and I look forward to playing this course. I like to take new players out and give them a taste of disc golf. This course is actually easier for the player who doesn't throw too far. As they can easily reach most of the baskets in two if they can keep it in the fairway. The Holes are clearly marked. It is not hard to find your way away around. The only doubt you might have is locating hole 10. you have to walk aroud the back of the ball field. And the ball field is OB.
Cons: This course is short and tight. I wish they could make it a little longer. Bugs can be bad even in the fall. The closest restroom is the ball field. Bring water in the summer
Other Thoughts: Indian town is a good place to introduce folks to disc golf. You may not be able to boom one but you will be tested to get a respectable score. And that is the turth or my name is not Gran Pa Fibbz.
