Blog #2 Thursday
For telling me about the 3 new courses in Mesquite, Bill Burns. Saved the day. The 2 I played so far are pretty awesome. Someone has done a lot of work and was given lots of $$$ to put these courses in. 3 new courses with tees and signs in one city that had 0, in one year!
Have not planned tomorrow yet..looks like the remaining one in Mesquite, Crawford Memorial, then some to the North of Dallas.
Round #4 Thursday-
Mesquite, TX- DeBosk:Possibly the most meticulously groomed grassy fairways on a disc golf course, besides those fly-18 courses. Some holes could be ball-golfed on, if not ridiculously short for that. Well marked, cement tees, busy park both with other golfers and walkers and kids. Plays on small hills and ridges along a creek, through some manicured tree clumps with a few wide open holes. Signature hole is 400' open and straight, a creek on the right, a tributary to it across the fairway, both with high edges and it looks awesome, and woods on the left. #8 and #9 are basically the same hole though, different winds. #1 is less than 150'. Lots of fun, super clean and enjoyable. Not challenging.
Round #5 Thursday-
Mesquite, TX- Paschall:Same set-up as DeBosk, same tee signs and tee pads, super clean and well carved out, well mowed and marked. Another great piece of land as well, with some tight tree line holes in an open space along some creeks, a few big open bomber holes. The middle gets tight with long tough to park tunnel holes with open fairways but thin, with thick woods on the sides (ivy there, but a pro should stay in fairway most of the time). Then a few holes carved out of low woods the same way Bandemer (back home) was carved out. These are middle range and finesse. Finishes with some longer partially open holes along water. Pure fun and easy to play, tough enough for a top player from longs. Tests many shots and is fair and balanced.
