- Upon arriving, there is a course map found beside the parking lot and hole maps are found throughout the course.
- A practice basket is located beside of the tees to hole one.
- There are two tees (white front and blue back) at every hole, allowing for varied difficult for all types of players.
- Great variety of holes; some are among rows of trees while others are distance holes in open field.
- This course will require the use of all types of discs in your bag along with the use of multiple driving styles. (I am predominately RHB, but I had to go forehand a couple times for the best drive.)
- Grass and foliage is well maintained.
- Concrete tees, hole maps, and baskets are in great condition.
- Shrubbery to the left of holes five and six is dense. A drive that slips into the high grass may not be found with ease.
- This course, being so popular, can be rather crowded on the nicest of days. Plan to play a round either early in the morning or later in the afternoon in order to avoid waiting at holes.
Other Thoughts: Critiquing this course against other 9-hole courses, Steele Creek Park excels. From beginner to intermediate to the advanced player, this course is both challenging and fun. I would highly recommend this course to all players in and outside of the tri-cities. In addition, the small shop found across the street from the parking lot features a great selection of discs you won't find at your local Dick's Sporting Goods. I will undoubtedly be returning to Steele Creek Park.

 Nice Course

Pros: Very scenic and beautiful course
Very good layout signs at each hole
Two sets of tees
Cons: Only 9 holes
Not very challenging
Other Thoughts: This is a nice course to play at. A lot of the holes are open or have trees that are not in the way. A few of the holes make up for this by having 400+ ft holes but still not a big challenge. There are are only 9 holes but two sets of tees makes up for that since you can play a different tee on the second round. Will be returning to play this course again and recommend anyone to visit this course. If you've played Kingsport's Borden and Warriors courses, this course is like an in-between course; easier than Warriors and tougher than Borden.

Pros: This is a very scenic, well kept course.
My pros are:
Concrete tee pads and nice signs.
Very well kept grass and "greens"
The park is very disc golf friendly despite having a ball golf course.
Two tee pads per hole are well placed and challenging.
The wildlife and beauty surrounds you while you play.
Very conservation minded.
Very challenging distances at 400+ and 500+ feet.
Roller opportunities
Pro shop sells discs at a reasonable price.
Restrooms in the pro shop.
Free score cards.
Has a practice basket for pre tourney putting.
Also has a large soccer field for driving warm ups.
Cons: Very few anhyzer holes.
Pro shop doesn't carry anything but Innova.
No alternate pin placements.
Other Thoughts: This park is beautiful. I really love to look out over its private lake and breathe in the fresh mountain air. Steel Creek park is a wonderful place that a serious disc golfer or a family can come and have a fun and challenging round. There are many pavilions in the park and a few around the disc golf course that will accommodate a BBQ after a round. Play here you won't regret it!

 Great Course

Pros: I love this course. I've played it many times, but it never gets old. The layout makes great use of the space. Many of the holes appear open, but they close up tight when you step up to throw. Excellent Signage and the course flows well.
Cons: It's only 9 holes. There are multiple tee positions, so you can make 18 out of it. However some of the tee boxes are just longer. There isn't that big of a difference on some of the holes.
Other Thoughts: Great course in a beautiful park. Be sure to check out the pro-shop (over by the "ball" golf course as you come in). They have some of the best prices in town - only Innova though.

 Beautiful Course

Pros: Multiple tees for ever hole. Concrete tee pads. Beautiful scenery. Secondary tees don't just change the distance of the hole, but completely change the way it is played.
Cons: Only 9 holes.
Other Thoughts: Absolutely stunning course, really beautiful park. Great pro shop at the beginning. The white tees are fun for advanced players and challenging for new players. The blue tees will give advanced players a little bit of a challenge. Playing both gives you a nice 18. If it had 9 more holes the quality of the first 9, this would definitely be a 5 out of 5. Great pads, great diagrams at each tee. great course, I will be back.

Pros: Very well maintained course with two possible aces! Holes #1, #3, #8 and #9 are wooded but accessible. Holes #2, #4, #5, #6, and #7 are mostly open. Slower players are good to let you play through and this will be a 5 star course when they add the other 9.
Cons: The tee boxes need to have the concrete poured and you must watch out for the occasional bird watcher. (they will learn).
Other Thoughts: Playing from the blues or whites, you can finish in 35-45 minutes and still have the energy to do 36 holes.

Pros: Great layout. Well kept. Well marked with awesome signs. Great beginner course, but also fun for the semi-pro. Dual tees on all holes. GREAT selection of discs at clubhouse. Paper scorecards available at clubhouse.
Cons: Only 9 Holes (but soon to be fixed, adding 9 more). Dirt tee pads (soon to be concrete). People walking across course (in middle of public park, big functions cause headaches)
Other Thoughts: According to the clubhouse manager, 9 more holes across the river and up the mountain a bit will be added, to make 18 (front 9 will be split current 9=future 18). Also concrete teepads are in the works. All of this is based on money available, so it may not be very soon. Great course all around, especially for families, but semi-pros can power play it in about 45 minutes. Clubhouse has great selection of discs at low prices. Worth at least 1 play, and then you will want to play again and again.
