"Again this is a beginner/family freindly course" Then I would put more green along the creek side of 4 & 5.
MANY people were putting it in the water and becoming very frustrated.
Or at least make access to creek easier. It is straight down and limited access mostly.

both points are true.

#5 is a bad hole to practice your drives on, unless you bring beach shoes or something. I finally made a birdy quality drive on #5 using my t-rex (is over stable) while side arming it yesterday. Missed the initial first putt, but made several practice putts from that spot, so it was a decent drive, and I proved to myself I could get a 2 on it if I keep at it.

On the other hand, on the creek access points, I'd be inclined to improvise some other ways younger, older, and/or more delicate players might make it across the creek in a few spots other than walking all the way around or splashing through, or sliding down the mudd. There has to be a way to do it without taking away from the natural beauty of the creek. I'm 40 now, I don't want to be climbing out of that creek when I'm 50/60, so I either need to get much better at the game, or place some rocks strategically around the creek between now and then.

Most of the time the creek is less than 6 inches deep.Any area at this time of the season will be slick and muddy. It isn't bad getting discs out of it. I have left several long sticks along different spots so people could drag their disc out but they always disappear. I will run this issue pass the board but I don't think they will do anything to it other than what has been done. They want to keep the park as natural as possible. Not every hole should be a deuce hole, some holes are designed to be lay ups and approach shots. I'm 51 and don't have any problems going after my disc there, try going down Banlick's creek holes !!

Any word on whether they might install concrete tees at some point? With the rain, the dirt tees are quite a mess.

or maybe mulch as mentioned by Steve earlier in the thread? but,  I doubt they would want to lay mulch before winter.

If you need help, with this next season I'll try to be around.

This year was just too see how things went. More things hopefully will happen next season. I know for a fact that we are going to have a least 2-3 glow events at the park. Dan pm me sometime and maybe we can meet at the park.

Yes I am 47 and brother in law 48 and it is not the easiest to get in/out of creek safely.
It has not been deep just seems we get it into the pondish areas where there are few good flat rocks
or an easy step down to it. We have put several long sticks out there as well. They help but in those
areas I mentioned, you get it to side of creek but it is still feet away from being able to reach safely.
To me on #5, the limb right as you cross the creek is one of the killers. Dont remove it however. Love
the difficulty there. Just looking to make creek acces safer and a little easier. Was sad to see all the
bush and shub ripped out on 4. Now we throw to the hillside and come around from right side. Whereas before
will all the growth, you went down the fairway and doglegged it right to the hole. I think that was much harder
and preferred.

I try to lean my risk toward hitting the trees on the right for a brush out. Seems I can reliably score a 3 on it. Working the kinks out of my technique though, since I hadn't played disc golf for most of the last decade. Well have to figure out something about the magical moving sticks. My guess is that kids, hikers, and dog walkers are taking them. Maybe I'll tie a note to one and see if it stays.

The park board decided to remove the brush without asking our opinion. I myself did not like that. It made hole 4 way to easy. That is way the basket on 4 was moved back as much as possibe to make it a little harder. Thanks for playing it and your input. That is one way for me to approach the board, They do look at this forum as well.

Curiously, what par would you say each of these holes are? is it typical to say its a par 3 if its unlisted? I understand that par doesnt really matter, its your overall score that counts, but I'd like know how well I'm shooting...specifically on the 9th hole. (Sorry if this has already been covered in the forums!)

@DanTheMan - Not sure if you're the same Dan I saw out on the course today, but if you are, thanks for picking up debris on the course today! If you're not the same Dan, well thanks to the guy who was cleaning up the course today! :D

your welcome.

At this course, Par is 3 on every hole, which is normal for disc golf whenever the holes aren't too long.
No one has made a 2 on hole 9 that we know of, although, if you have the whip, it is surely doable.

I'm thinking for a round of 9:
pro 20 or less
advanced 20-24
average 25-28
beginner 29 or more

Thanks Dan . My son is Shawn. I think on hole 9 when he went pass the hole to the trail , he threw I belive was a force. As for the events coming up, they published them in their monthly magazine and made several flyers to pass out. I have some of them that I will be putting out as time gets closer. These dates where decided upon last year but we had to wait until the board approved everything. Thanks for your support.

Im there every other day at least from about noon to sundown trying for more -9's lol..The pads are not awful. you cant run on 3 but you shouldn't need to, 5 around the basket is awful right now but not unplayable. There is a huge stick on 5's fairway you can use to get your disc out of any part of the creek, just put it back please. I am keeping an eye out for kids, there were 3 young (under 13) shooting a paintball gun but i think they were just dry firing it (No paintballs) and it was up by the playground not the course.

A maxweight force is a great disc if you have a strong forehand you can birdy both 5/9 regularly if you S it.

No We had a clinic there Tuesday and the holes up top were still very wet. Very strange how that area holds water .
