South Hills Disc Golf Course
Not positive who darwindave is but have a clue. He says course makes great use of its space then says it can be crowded at times. I won't bore you with hole to hole details but its a its approximately 30 acres where only 18 acres are used. Darwindave has basically only played crap Montana courses so you have to take that into consideration. Montana courses are good if mountain climbing is your favorite sport. This course is mild in that aspect. But still the alternate pin placement on hole 9 is where all the RHBH players throw their Destroyers when aiming for original placement. Just one example of discrimination. I played with the player this past summer that all the pros are afraid of. He still uses a DX Eclipse and can get as much distance as those with Destroyers. He still is a jerk which is why some rig their courses.
Take the naysayer's opinions with a grain, or pound, of salt. This course is a blast! Boasts a yearly C-tier, the Queen City Classic, which is easily the best C tier I've been to! Course layout makes great use of it's space. Can be crowded at times due to the walking path, but is clearly visible from any teepads and only requires a bit of etiquette for it to not be an issue.
Great mix of shots needed to get through unscathed, especially with the relatively dry grass and slope style layout that punishes careless upshots with tough, but fair, roll-aways. You can't get away with a good score without having a versatile shot selection and angle control. A great challenge ran by folks that know disc golf well and care about our beloved sport! Can only imagine the test it will present after a few more year's worth of tree growth take away the few 'cheater' lines still present.
Try playing on a windy day! Would test even Ghandi's patience ;)
Lastly, disregard any statements about it being biased towards RHFH/LHBH players... A left hand back hand dominant player out of Idaho, Jared Person, won the 2017 QCC by something like 15 strokes during the 2 round event, including what I believe was a course-record 15 under par 42? May be off a bit, but damned close if I am.
One of my favorites! Great usage out of a public park area! Can't wait to see what else this great non-profit dg club pulls off in the coming years!
Baskets are actually Mach II. New pin placements have been added. New club that is a non-profit. Same members of sleeping giant club. Original long pins I would give course s 58 rating which is for 19 holes. Can't influence enough members of club to make course safer by removing a hole in NW section if course which is cluttered. Still if they would have contacted people like me that know how to design a course it could have been a premier course. Now it's barely adequate. As with any course nowadays vandalism is outrageous. Some people's kids.
Another course blatantly designed to discriminate against RH sidearm or left-hand backhand throwers. If you throw RHBH you simply throw an easy hyzer on 17 of the nineteen holes. Other type thrower have to throw trick drives. It is so blantant that the tee boxes are angled to start your throw on the right of the fairway. Most holes are crowded in the NW section of course, making that section of course very unsafe. Baskets are actually the inferior Mach V's. Discs bounce out of basket regularly. Irregular flow of course. Meaning you walk by tee boxes to get to proper tee box. Two years of talk of making course safe have yield no action by local non-profit club. City installed walking path through middle of fairways. Five kinds of illegal noxious weeds grow on course. High use course with very little golf etiquette displayed by players. I quit their club because of the poor etiquette of many club members as did some of my neighbors.
