The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Today was all about that search for the elusive first tee. I felt like I was on safari, at least the courses themselves were well marked and I didn't have to play safari. It rained for the most of the morning, until after the first 3 rounds. I am probably going out later to knock out a short 9 hole course that says 'no drivers' tonight.
Black/Red Hawk, then Haikey Creek tomorrow.

Tulsa (Sperry), OK- Mack Taylor:Currently closed, looks like because a storm came through and tore some limbs apart, signs of work crews cleaning up the trees but not nearly done. I parked next to it and RAN through with one disc anyway, I didn't go up there for nothing. It has most of it's 9 signs intact, and once you find the 1st hole in the back corner, it's easy to follow. Medium length holes through tall trees in a completely flat field bordered by roads. The holes are somewhat well defined tunnels and slight turns, no rough stuff no hazards. A bit of ivy vines. Very typical/average course. 2.5/5 stars.

Tulsa, OK- Chandler:Tough to find the first tee. A basic old design, short through open park with stands of trees and some tight holes. Never goes into the thick woods, a few road OB's and no water hazard. Fun, challenging to throw such soft shots sometimes forcing me to throw a putter past the hole and putt back. Good variety. Some small hills, some ivy vines. Holes #14-15 are apparently missing? I could not find them or where they could be, where they should have been was partially under construction so I assume they were taken out. Easy to navigate otherwise, with good color-photo signs, worn paths. #1 is straight back into park from the entrance by 'Chandler Park" spelled out in white rocks on the hillside, by pavilion #3, to the left. 3/5 stars.

Tulsa, OK- Reed:Short, mix of tight tree filled holes and some mostly open. Small city park w/ other park users. A few holes cross and play up to a small creek down at the bottom of a steeply sloped drainage canal. Well maintained. Rough dirt/mud today tees. Most signs broken, but someone had the idea to write the # and length on the post just like I was talking about the other day! Good for them, much appreciated. Not hard to follow, find. Roc-shot type course. 2.5/5 stars.

Tulsa, OK- Course Dovillio:Long, tournament level and tough course in a flat park filled with all sorts of trees, along a drainage canal that's only in play on 2 holes. The #2 basket is on a slope by the water, but a rock pile should stop most roll-aways from getting wet. Very well marked, all signs intact and informative. Cement tees. Well maintained/mowed. Many holes over 400', with more than a few over 600' including the first hole. Nothing very short, but a good amount of reachable 250-350' deuce opportunities. Long range accuracy important, as well as sidearm or left-handed ability. I found it to be not well balanced, many holes (at one point like 6 out of 7 in a row) offer an easier, more open route with less trees in the way and no low ceiling for a slight left hand back hand fade, but a much tighter and low ceiling route for a right hand back hand hyzer, leaving me to throw a slight 's' or turnover or try to poke through and low. Basically, Geoff Bennett would make it look like a joke of a course. 4/5 stars/

Tulsa, OK- Hunter:The most technical and challenging course in the area by far. Tournament ready, lots of hazards to be wary of including a creek running through half the holes, some crossing it and some baskets right up next to it. Poison ivy is pretty bad, but not that rampant and easy to avoid- EXCEPT on the walk between #4-#5, where I almost walked right into a jungle of it along the path, have to walk down to the creek to get to the next tee to avoid it there, the leaves so big and since I have gotten used to not watching out, I didn't recognize it until it was in my face. #4 is kind of crazy too, forcing an overhand shot 180' and downhill with water behind. Many long just-out-of reach holes. Finishes in a more open very nice grassy area, with #17 teeing blindly over a large marsh and it starts to look like a ball golf course. 4/5 stars, 4.5 without poison ivy, change hole #4, make #1 easier to spot.
