So what's the story on the Lucketts' course (Freedom Center at Elijah's Gate or something)? There was a lot of talk about it opening up this year and needing to contact the LoCo guys to play it in the interim but now I hear nothing. My job just recently moved from Maryland to Herndon and I drive through Lucketts several days a week.

Robbio123 Hi Crooow,
The Freedom Center course (or now referred to as Clarks Run Disc Golf Course) is not quite ready for plat, but is available. The concrete tee pads are still being installed by the LoCo we have not listed it yet as it's really not ready for review as yet. Imagine several holes of concrete/gravel/tools etc (still) need to be hand wheel barrelled in over a 1/2 mile of wooded/hilly terrain. It's taking quite an effort to complete the course set up. The group is almost there. Most holes now have a concrete pad. The inaugural tourney has been listed on DiscGolfScene in case of interest:
As such, there's a lot of activity to get it ready for tournament play. No real signage is available yet. Which at the moment makes average play tough for first timers. The course is looking like it will be over 7300 - 7400 feet in a rolling hilly/wooded terrain. It is sure to challenge most seasoned veteran DGers. The hope is to set it up so that it takes around a 1000 rating to beat par.

The LoCo guys are truly working hard on this, they're almost there. Give them a couple more weeks. You can check out their progress on the Facebook page.

All the best.

sisyphus Well, Andrew has been doing updates, but Blue to long baskets as of right now is at 8,198 feet, and Kurt has been talking about fundraising to make that layout permanent, and rotating a second set of baskets amongst the shorter pin positions. Very, very cool!

Holes 6-14 only have the long tees as of this date. Will update once the short tees for those holes have been poured.

Created a quick map off of memory to help navigate course. Dont believe signage is up yet so please bring copy of map to help. Hole #14 will eventually play as an island green once some sort of markers are installed. Roads and or walking paths and over are OB. No water holes.

Future_Primitive Update: No signage yet so use Map in Links/Files above. Nice, grippy cement pads maybe 4 ft x 10 ft. Rough is not very deep but very lush and leftover debris from last years clearing can make walking in it awkward.

Future_Primitive Update: Working on distances for short natural (grass) pads. Some got mowed over and are hard to identify. Have a list of 7 holes that share pad (long/short) and 11 that will have shorts. Hope to knock it out this week.

Future_Primitive Shout out to T Pills on painting 18 concrete pavers white and painting on the Hole # and distances for each pad. These temp signs will help players around course until the real signage arrives.

ALL 18 baskets are in. Pay no attention to the 2x4 posts in the course pix.

Just went out today to add a few last minute improvements: directional minis added at or near the baskets to point the way to the next set of tees; a visibility pole for the blind basket on hole 13; red arrows and spray paint to mark the tees for easy visibility.

Scott K will be out later this afternoon to weed-eat OB lines and around the pins. (Thank that man for his hard work if you ever see him, please!)

It should be noted. The first hole, which was often considered gimicky and annoying since the basket was so high, has been changed. The basket is now much lower to the rock, you can easily reach the basket without climbing or using a stick The hole is now much more easy to putt on since it is not a death putt from 15' away.

Please keep in mind that this course is not completed. We are working hard to finish the course but it's a slow process. The course is being installed by volunteers. If you would like to help you can contact us on facebook.
