Buck Creek State Park Disc Golf Course is now in the ground and playable!!!

It is located at Buck Creek State Park in Springfield.

Tees are marked with flags, so pay attention. This course is in its infancy so be prepared

18 Innova baskets a great view of the lake decent elevation change

9 wooded 9 open

Directions from Cincy 675 north until it dead ends into I-70 go east to st rt 40 (you will pass springfield exits st rt 4,68,72 and 41) get off exit and turn left follow for asbout 3 miles to Bird rd (marathon on corner) turn right
this dead ends into park. Once in the park turn right (just after Div of Watercraft bldg) follow this to the fourth left

park in the second parking lot hole #1 goes into the woods Maps will be available soon

Footages are close to actual, but there are going to be a number of changes this Spring.
Total ft = 4,717 short, but can be a bit deceiving.

Sean, just curious on why the baskets are in the ground when it looks like the course isn't even complete.

?? Complete. The course is playable. I guess you might be talking about honeysuckle off the fairways and a few stumps? Bill is working out there this weekend on some of the fine details.

Could you elaborate on complete. I guess I'm missing some of your point

Sean, don't get me wrong but I didn't see any tee signs and tee pads. I can see that it is playable but I think that putting the baskets in last will give the guys an incentive to pitch in and help and will keep disc golfers from playing through when you're working on the course. They can't play through if there's no bastets to throw to. Just my thoughts. Keep up the good work.

I didn't take it the wrong way, but thanks for your words. I do appreciate your opinion on this. The tee signs (at least posts) will be in within the next month or two if not sooner. We have had a limited budget and are keeping things tight so we can have funds for the teepads. Also, we are adding two more holes in the woods and eliminating 2 current holes so we want to wait until that work is finished. We are presently working on that now. Hopefully we can meet up there this year so we can play it and I can get your perspective on a few things.

Thanks Fred

PS Tee pads will be last. This way we do not lock ourselves into something we may want to change after play this year!

I'll make it up there sometime this year. I see your point on the tee pads. Take care.
