Other Thoughts:

By the look of the property, I can only surmise this area was once a sizable RV park. There are remnants of old utility boxes here and there, small paved paths running all around the park, and there's waterside lodging adjacent to course. Post'l' Point's concrete tees look great, each has an informative tee sign listing distance and basket direction. Tall, bare trunked, high limbed trees are scattered throughout the course. These tree filled fairways make for great obstacles without clogging up the fairways. The high canopy also helps create natural shade. Fairway lengths vary between short and medium distances, one or two of them are little longer.

Post'l Point's flat landscape feels a little bland and repetitive. Baskets could use a splash of color or a flag to help them stand out. I think something as simple as adding multiple pins would greatly help add variety. Minor cons aside, I was pleasantly surprised by this course. Everything looked new, the course was clean, and the overall design was sound. There's not a whole lot of wow factor here, but it's pretty special compared to your typical military style course. Better yet, there's a beach on location for post disc golf recreational enjoyment. Come for the frolf, stay for the beach!

Great quiet course

Pros: If you're in the military looking for a mostly quiet, well kept up course this is pretty good. Decent variety, not a crazy amount of walking or any water hazards.
Cons: Variety is decent but a lot of the shots look the same without much weaving. A good amount of hazards are just from throwing the disc too high.

Pros: Scenic 18-basket course with great variety and challenge. Nice view of the bay.
Course is generally clean.
Only holes 4 and 5 pose an issue of possibly losing a disc in the shrubs (and would take a significant misfire to do so).
Cons: Need to have access to Eglin AFB to play course.
Signage marks the tees but maps on the signs are not always helpful.
Tee boxes are comprised of loose sand or rock. Some have roots. No benches.
Determining which basket to aim from a tee is not always clear or obvious.
Some holes lined up too close together, an issue if multiple groups are playing one after another.
Hole 2 may be an adventure to play during or after a significant rain.
Other Thoughts: Fun course with good variety that will challenge novices and experts alike.

Weeds and deadfall

Pros: 1. Not crowded at all
2. Pine trees create unique challenges for pars
3. Newly installed concrete tees
4. Benches are now on three tees
Cons: 1. Low ground is often mushy from rain.
2. Lots of fire ant beds next to pines These critters hurt!
3. Seed pods stick to socks and sneakers.
4. Bahia grass is now 18"-24" high. Desperately needs mowing.

5. Grass should be mowed at least once per week.
6. Two baskets are unlevel. These could be straightened.
Other Thoughts: Base entomology technicians should heavily spray insecticide to kill fire ants and mosquitoes.
Trees and limbs make a short course challenging.
There is a LOT of damage done by armadillos (looking for grubs) on number 2 and 3. I wish that the area could be sprayed to kill the grubs so that the armadillos would go away. Base Civil Engineering is less than a mile from this course. CE has the entomology technicians. This problem would not be allowed on any other part of this installation. Why does the problems remain at the disc golf course?
Falling limbs litter the course. Unsightly.
Outdoor Rec has a programmer, Erik Dahl, who is committed to some significant course improvements.

Post'l Point Disc Golf Course

Pros: -Well maintained
-Variety of long and short holes (150ish-425ft)
-Beautiful scenery
-Variety of doglegs right and left
-Plenty of obstacles
Cons: -Signage needs improvement
Other Thoughts: The Post'l Point Disc Golf Course is an excellent course on Eglin AFB, and is well worth the trip to play, if you have base access. No water holes on this course means that losing a disc is pretty hard, unless you put it up in a tree.
Easiest Hole: #6. A nice dogleg right for LHBH throwers sets you up for a par on this short hole, at worst. A good chance for an ace as well.
Hardest Hole: #10. Four Hundred and twenty-five feet in length, hole 10 begins right outside of a copse of trees, and finishes inside of another grove of trees. No birdie chances, and very easy to bogey.
Birdie chances abound, but so do bogeys, and the multitude of trees add to the difficulty of the course.
Overall, a great course!

Pros: Not much pedestrian traffic with only random walkers/joggers unless there is a 5K race scheduled. Good course for a beginner as most holes are >200' with a handful being marked 250-300' but seem shorter. 1 long hole (10) that will let you air out your distance driver. Baskets, Mach 3's, are new and most are in good shape. The biggest "PRO" is that Outdoor Rec knows there are issues and management is open to making changes and improvements including concrete tee pads, moving/expanding holes, etc. are on the radar for course improvements.
Cons: SMALL course, several shots ~150' and hole placement can make it difficult to know exactly which of the 3 or 4 baskets you can see from some of the tee pads you are throwing at. Speaking of that, if there's more than a handful of people playing WATCH OUT for errant, or not so errant shots when you're putting out or teeing off for that matter on at least 14 basket/tees!! Keep your head on a swivel if you're not out there alone. You'll also need to be able to get on Eglin AFB or have a buddy that can sign you in if you want to play this course. Easy to get lost on the transition from hole 9 to 10. 10's tee area is almost directly across from 9's teeing area so you have to come back up and cross the road over to 10's tee. everything elses is somewhat easy to follow. Sinage is available on some holes but all are printed paper in standard sheet protectors taped to very thin plexiglass sheets. some are missing or totally gone including the broken plexiglass that can be found on the ground by several tee sign poles.
Other Thoughts: Improvements have been promised and should be in the works. This could have been a GREAT 9 hole course but 18 holes were shoehorned into a tiny plot of land.

LASTLY ... if you are at the course, remember you're on a military facility. Don't sign the baskets for your "aces" sign your own discs! Also DON'T bring your medicinal items you don't have perscriptions for (legal in FLORIDA) as the base does frequently use this area for dog training/exercises.

A nice course in the making

Pros: Nice course next to the ocean. Great for beginners and other levels with various ways to approach each hole. has some short holes and a few long holes to let your disk fly. No walkers or other pedestrians to get in the way.
Cons: A new course with no tee boxes and confusing paper signs. A bit confusing to find where to tee off and which hole to shoot for. Some holes are very close to location to tee off which can be trouble if not careful.
Other Thoughts: With a little work and new additions this could be a great course. The wind from the ocean adds to the challenge on some holes.
