Soldier Springs Disc Golf Course.

After being turned down due to public access for the Deer Ridge course we set our sights on Soldier Springs.

We walked the 55 acres and started focusing on the 30 acres near the back of the property. We next designed a rough layout and played the course with a temporary basket. After that round we decided to make a few changes and redesigned four or five holes and played another round.
