On Christmas Day 2007 - after having received a gift of three Champion plastic discs from Santa - the family & I went down to North Port to have Christmas dinner with my mom-in-law. So, I made a plan to hit the disc golf course that can be found down there. The kids went with - probably to avoid the boredom of hanging out at Grandma's - and we tackled the course.
The North Port Charlotte Regional Sports Complex disc golf course is rough-hewn and carved from some serious wild Florida-style palmetto scrub, pine trees and everything in between. Lots of tight fairway shots, and a disc that goes astray can be difficult to reclaim, due to the thickness of the shule. The signage is quite adequate, however, and all tees are concrete.
There are only a couple of relatively open fairway shots (holes #6 & #18), but the majority of the course is fraught with fighting your way past the foliage. This is not necessarily a bad thing. My guess would be that most disc golfers who have played any of the other courses in the area would not care much for this little cubic zirconium-in-the-rough, but it does force you to bring plenty of skill into play to navigate.
And, after recently getting the chance to go back there and play again, I like the course even better than I did before.
I can see a lot more that can be done with this course, but as I always say: it's another very different place to play, and you can't fault it for that!
