Valley Springs Park
I used to have such great love and respect for this course. It is where I set my personal record for consecutive birdies. I have to disagree with you, Untested Virtue.. that "fore more' is the stupidest aspect of any course I've ever seen; even more so than when Cedarock was 20 holes. I shudder to think of how many old growth pines were felled for that asininity. Golf, whether it be golf golf, disc golf, or putt-putt golf is supposed to be 18 holes...nine if you have limited land.
This is a very fun and challenging course to play. 2-3 tees per basket. several basket locations are changed even/odd months to add variety (diagram will guide you). course is in the woods and it is well maintained. while you need accuracy, it is possible to get long throws in if you can nagivate the disc past some key trees. There is a map online and at the park. concrete tees at each basket with signs showing diagram and distances and faily easy to navigate through. a little confusing after I think #16? to get to #17. If you're not paying attention you may replay #15 as you have to walk past it again.
Fun and wooded. Usually three tees per hole (red, white, blue), sometimes an alternate basket. Cuts through the woods with fairways expertly carved out. Disregard the pars for the advanced tees - or kill yourself trying to par the 514-foot uphill "par 3" #18. Well trodden and usually not too busy. Linear layout, difficult to get lost.
Because it borders baseball fields, you might have to battle Little League traffic to park, but you'll find that no matter how crowded the park is, the disc golf course will be open to you.
Nice course! Bring your marksmanship and walking shoes. And save time for "Fore More (#19-#22)," perhaps the highlight of the course.
This course is very well maintained and spread out nicely. You will work up a sweat traversing the course, but the challenge of each hole (three tees and moving holes) keeps me coming back. The "fore more" holes are deviously long and difficult, but always a fun way to end a round of 18 holes.
Pros: great challenging course spread out wonderfully. Lots of challenging shots and the 3 tees make it fun to play. well maintained
Cons: lots of walking( not for the faint of heart)
