DG on the Main Street of America
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Shot variety, need Forehand and Backhand.
Hilly terrain involved, big uphill shot on #2.
Water coming into play with a nice little creek flowing through.
Some risk involved with some drop offs/roll-aways on a number of greens.
Dual Pin positions.
Great signage, plus directional signs to the next Holes.
Cons: To me, just natural Tee pads would be preferable to the lumpy rubber mats, it's noted that cement may come in the future.
#8 plays directly next to a large shelter, and has a playground as well, which could be a problem in summertime with families. Grip lock would send a disc straight into the children's play area.
#9 shoots over two picnic tables, if busy, that hole is unplayable, potentially two holes that would have to be skipped.
Geese enjoy hanging around #6, count on goose poop as you approach the basket near water's edge.
Other Thoughts: Riley Park is not your typical small-town city park Course.
With the elevation changes, and well-thought out holes, it's fun to play. Beginning players will have a challenge on their hands, but cutting their teeth here will give them a leg up as they explore more difficult Courses.
Cruise down U.S. 40 to double the day up with Boondocks Farms!

Pros: Nice park with easy access, decent parking, restrooms. Lots of elevation changes, a mix of open and semi-technical holes, nice mature trees and a creek in play to make things fun! New Innova 28's catch great! Dual tees for all holes except #8, Rubber tee-pads for now, maybe concrete before too long. A/B pin locations for each hole. Some really fun greens with lots of drop away putts if you miss. Great course for Rec to Intermediates to learn the game. Advanced players will have a blast throwing ace/birdie runs on fun, hilly terrain.
Cons: Shorter course will not really challenge Pro level players (but they would have fun). Park can be busy and parking is adequate, but not expansive.
Other Thoughts: Great first public disc golf course for this community. A nice park with plenty of exposure for disc golf, right on US 40. The National Road. Plenty of options for gas, food & drinks nearby. Nice warm up, or after round, if you are playing either nearby course, The Boonies in Knightstown, or the private course at Mohawk in rural Greenfield.
