Holston Creek Park
Pros: -The best tee signs I have ever seen.
-Great welcome/layout signs (Two of them!)
-Tee boxes are on point.
-Great layout variety.
-Fantastic imagination on basket placement and hazards.
Cons: -The out of play areas are quite thick. Discs thrown there are hard to find.
-The long blind holes are sometimes a pain to find where your shot settled.
-It is long and takes a lot of time to play. Can't really fit a round in after working a 8-4 day.
Other Thoughts: I recently moved to the area, and I have been making the tour of all the local courses. I had been putting off visiting Holston Creek because it is a bit of a drive from where I live, and I have heard that it is a beast of a course which was a little intimidating.
But, since I plan to play in The Hub City Halloween Open in a couple weeks, I needed to play the course at least once to be a little familiar with it before I hit it in tournament play. A buddy and I went and played the course Sunday, and I was very pleasantly surprised.
This course has many features I have never seen before. There is a lot of creativity that went into the layout, and each and every hole was an adventure. Sure, it was tough. But, I thought it was fair to the player. You have to know yourself and your limitations when you play a course like this.
I loved the hanging goals (especially the one on the cable). Bringing water into play on 3 of the holes was very well done. It incorporated a lot of pucker factor! I loved finally getting to some open holes and finding OB stakes in place, then bringing in sand hazards with those fences! Wow. We had an incredible time and enjoyed every hole.
Yes it is big. Yes it takes a while to play. Yes some of the blind holes make finding discs interesting at times. But this is an incredibly diverse course that you can use every shot in your arsenal on. I have played several of the top 10 rated courses in the world. Holston Creek deserves to be one of them.
