 Anyone have any info regarding the 9 baskets that were recently installed around the baseball and soccer fields at RA Jones Middle School?  

Someone already has the minimum info on DGCR but nothing on hole lengths, map, etc.

My kids have all gone to this school. Through my kids, the Physical Education department knew that I was an avid disc golf player. The PE department has always had curriculum to introduce kids to different sports and encourage exercise. I have been asked to do disc golf clinics in the past for PE classes. The administration was approved for a PEP (Physical Education Promotion) grant. Based on the response of the kids and staff of those clinics, I was called to consult on a course design and installation on the school grounds.

Based on the space available and a walking trail already installed, 9 baskets were installed with help from Boone County Parks and Recreation. It is a beginner/rec course with kids in mind. The tees have not been installed yet. The tees will be grass. Posts and signs at teeing areas are planned to be installed in the fall. Hole 1 is the shortest hole along parking lot (~ 150ft) and longest will be hole 7 (~ 550ft). Total course length is approx. 2400ft. We are having kids of all skill levels play the course to determine rec par for kids. Once school is back in session, we will have more data. I am thinking it will be around a total par of 31 (6 - par 3s, 2 - par 4s, 1 - par 5). More to come in the fall.

The RA Jones 9 Hole course is officially open now. The tee pads and signs were finished 2 weeks ago. The official opening occurred May 29. It is mostly open, designed with middle school kids in mind. The course traverses the outer property for the most part. We had to work around the ball fields and exercise stations. The first tee is to the left of the tee ball field near the building. First tee throws to basket between parking lot and tee ball screen.

Signs at tees show hole distance and next tee direction from basket. The distances I am listing are what I actually measured. Tee sign distance may be somewhat different.

Hole 1 - 123 ft.
Hole 2 - 210 ft.
Hole 3 - 219 ft.
Hole 4 - 198 ft.
Hole 5 - 288 ft.
Hole 6 - 246 ft.
Hole 7 - 383 ft.
Hole 8 - 165 ft.
Hole 9 - 282 ft.
