Bringing DG to rural IN
Pros: DG in the middle of rural Indiana.
Short, newbie/kiddie friendly.
No chance to lose a disc unless it goes in the pond.
Proshop with a very small selection of Innova discs, refreshments, etc.
Cons: The golf itself isn't anything to write home about. Mostly wide open fairly short holes on a short par 3 golf course.
Listed DISCatchers are actually DISCatcher sports.(portable baskets.)
Tee pads appear to be one single horse stall rubber mat, maybe 5'x4'.
Long and short tee pads listed but we only saw one tee pad per hole.
Other Thoughts: My travel buddies and I squeezed a quick (late evening) 9 holes in here while on our way to Lafayette after rounds at Lemon Lake and Rogers Lakewood. The people that rang us up seemed honestly surprised that they had 3 people show up to play DG. They let my buddy rent a golf cart (even though she mentioned it was usually for people "that can't walk very well.").
This place was packed at 8:30PM on a Saturday night as it appears this is likely one of the few entertainment options in this neck of the woods. The driving range had a few folks on it, the golf course had a few two-somes finishing up their rounds, but the miniature golf was backed up on nearly every hole. We were the only disc golfers, and the only ones on the entire course by the time we got to hole 3. The proshop had refreshment options and a small selection of discs for sale.
My buddies and I literally stopped here because we had no idea what to expect. The course was listed, but no reviews, and no pictures. We buzzed through the course pretty quickly (less than 1 hour for 3 disc golfers), even as we took pictures to add here on DGCR.
The owner came out to chat with us as we were packing up our gear. Thanked us several times for coming out to play and appreciated our critiques which amount to "Good opportunity for kids and newbies to learn the basics." He mentioned the course designer has a golf/disc golf/mini-golf tourney he runs here and talked about plans for adding more trees to the course and continuing to tweak the design.
The course won't challenge anyone Intermediate level or above, but all in all a good place to stop for a stretch and a quick round if you're driving through.
