Edward Medard Disc Golf Park
Great course especially in the winter months when the Florida heat is not a factor. Many of the baskets are hidden from the tees making it a very entertaining course. Low ceiling in many areas forces long low shots. Mostly well laid out and marked. If you have a booming long throw, maybe take a friend to help search for discs.
Just played this course on 01/01/16. It was well maintained, and is set up for intermediate to more advanced users. Best to bring a friend or group unless you want to lose a disc, or several discs. The first 9 holes are very easy, but 10-15 are in dense wooded areas, up and down hills, some pretty steep, and dangerous water hazards(if it goes in you are not, trust me). The last three have a lot of trees, but not terribly difficult. I wouldn't recommend playing this alone unless you know the water hazard areas well, or don't care if you loose your discs. It was my first time playing the course with a group of 4, and I lost one to the water, but I enjoyed playing the course. It will definitely be a challenge for beginners beyond the 9th hole, but would be good experience, and overall, it is fun to play. There are no par indicators on this course, just distance only. It is well marked at the beginning of every pad, and there are clearly marked arrows pointing to the next hole which makes it really easy to play at a good pace. There are posts at each holes tee pad that has a map of the hole and the distance, NO PAR. Hope this helps anyone wanting to play here. They also have handy cap tournaments for all skill levels every Saturday, with quarterly Bar-B-Que. It is still $2 for a car load up to 8 people, so bring friends! Enjoy.
Living in Lakeland, Fl its nice having a course not to far away. the basket placement makes this course fairly difficult with a fair amount of hills to traverse through. several of the tee signs warn of water though it has dried up, but on the outskirts of 12-15 there is a lot of thick woods with some swampy water generally to the right of the fairway so keep an eye on your discs. other than that i love the course for the challenge it provides compared to other courses I've playing in central Florida.
the park itself is very nice, the entire course plays around a playground and hole 9 throws through an open field that sometimes has people flying kites, so make sure its clear before launch. and the price of $2 per car is extremely reasonable especially if you take a car load. but i would highly recommend this course to any disc golf fan.
