Friendly Folks At Singing Hills!

Pros: Singing Hills is some kind of a Christian camp complex with a wide range of activities for the family. There are cabins, a cafeteria, swimming pool, soccer and baseball fields, nature walks, and much more. The ground are beautiful and well kept. It would be a lovely place for a disc golf course with baskets and a layout designed by someone who's played before.
The course is open to the public. You probably want.to leave your brewskis in the trunk. I assume that might be frowned upon. The targets are 1 foot square wooden targets bolted to trees and the occasional shed or something. They also have the par on them. They are also the tee box for the next hole. I figured out to look around , completely around like at a 360 degree circle, when looking for the next target. By the way, they call them plaques. The course currently has two Par 1 's and a Par 6. I had to skip the Par 6 hole due to a volleyball game in progress. Too bad, I was fairly confident in thinking I was going to get my first ever double eagle. A triple eagle is a possibllty for a good player. Now honestly, who has ever scored a triple eagle?
The "Top of the World" shot on # 11 is awesome. It's wide open so no chance of losing your disc. The basket is visible. Every course should have this 445 foot downhill toss.
Cons: These little one foot square plaques are really small difficult targets to hit.
Regarding the Par 1's. Although very short, if you miss your short Ace shot and your disc goes by the tree holding the plaque, you're destined to get at least a three because the plaque can only be hit from one side.
The Par 1's are so short, they are quite silly. # 15 is about 30 feet.
Other Thoughts: The nice young lady at reception offered me the use of some of their loaner discs. They had a small collection, six or so, made of entirely of Whamo plastic toy frisbees. Imagine throwing one of those toy frisbees off a 445 foot downhill bomb and watching it flutter in the wind for, maybe 50 feet. I donated a beat up disc that I had found on one of the courses that I had played the day before. If this course was close to my house, I'd go out into my garage and grab about 15 skanky old beat discs that I've either found, discarded or inherited over the years and I'd donate them to Singing Hills. Let them have some better loaners to toss down their big hill.

Object golf at its best
Pros: This is a disc golf course from the throw back days of object golf. There are no baskets here, but there are 18 plaques nailed to trees spread out over a fine well thought layout.
There are both very long and very short holes. Two high risk / reward holes over water, and with creativity there is a third. The tees for each hole is supposed to be where the plaque for the last hole was. When friends and I play there we will make alternate tees for some of the holes to bring a new look to the drives.
There is terrain variation on every single hole. Hole eight in particular is about a four hundred foot hole that rises in elevation about one hundred feet. Hole eleven is about 500feet and goes down in elevation about 120 feet.
The entire course has great fairways that are clear in the middle but wooded on the edge. Always mowed and well maintained. Super easy to follow and navigate. An extreme workout for your legs.
There are plenty of amenity's for the rest of the family. There are basketball courts with balls present, tennis courts, fully stocked playgrounds with slides, swing sets, climbing equipment etc., also walking trails, and swimming pools and swimming pond with 50' slide. You would be hard pressed not to find something fun to do.
Cons: No baskets, just plaques.
No official tees.
Other Thoughts: If you are ok with not hearing the sound of chains for one round, then this is a fantastic place to go for a super nice round that you are guaranteed to enjoy. Really well laid out, fun and diverse.
