The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I woke up at nearly 8:00, was planning to tee-off at 7:00 so I did not get in 6 rounds, not to mention insane traffic (45 minutes wasted) due to a NASCAR event or whatever. I didn't know they did that up north.

Pennsville, NJ- Riverview:
A very nice recreational level 9 hole course along a lake, but never getting too close to risk losing a disc without a pretty bad shot. Grassy, open but with enough trees to craft shots on half the holes. Has some decent length, most holes well over 250'. Could be hard to navigate as tees are marked with bricks, but look around and use common sense it's not hard.

Kirkwood, DE- Lums Pond:In a large state park, has cement tees, tee-signs (though most inaccurate due to new basket placements, walk every hole first because there's no way to tell where the pin is). Mix of all shots. Nothing very long and open, but several long woods holes. Can be rough on the edges on the back 9, easy to lose a disc here. Other than a few odd holes, like a "U" shape and the roughness on the back, it is a great course overall.

Felton, DE- Killens Pond:
Has nice informative signs showing pin placement, 3 sets of decent rock/dirt tees. Consists mostly of very blind very sharp turns down tight fairways, with insane rough on the edges sometimes. The ivy is unavoidable, surrounding some baskets. Good design except for 2-3 crazy holes, tournament level course. One hole almost forces and overhand shot over some tall trees and bushes in the middle of the 'fairway' with no room to go around, landing in a tight fairway out of sight from the tee then an upshot from there. Have to see the pic to believe it. The next hole is similar, the view straight off the tee is a tree 5' in front of you, leaves and all, have to throw outward and around it, it blocks the shot completely, per design, weird. If you don't mind rough conditions, play this course for sure!

Lewes, DE- Camp Henlopen:
One of the most unusual courses I've ever seen, it's all on sand dunes and scrubby pine trees. Nearly every hole is blind, to the point you can't see the pin until you are putting. It is 30 years old, with original mach's and some cool new wooden tee pads. Easy to follow and play. I highly recommend it because it's like a walk on the beach, chance to lose a disc is slim even with all the blind shots. It is a lot of fun. Also in the first city of the first state.
Dover, DE- Dover:One of the best, in terms of design and maintenance, 9 hole courses around. It tests all skills, and has some extremely short holes. Mix of open-grassy and tight pine tree alleys. Has signs and is easy to follow. Worth playing as a warm-up between ends of the state. Hole #1 starts behind the office and pavilion to right after entrance.

Dude! You were down at Cape Henlopen and then didn't play Trap Pond State Park? You missed a course that would make your top 25, easily.

The U hole.... is that the one that plays into the Govt planted forest ((the really un-natural row(s) of trees)) and what number hole is it?

...standing at the fence in the Tri-Oval when 43 cars fly by at 200 mph...inches apart...inches from you...Hi Def don't touch that!!!!

BTW....The trailer they are running for the NASCAR races at MIS (Michigan International Speedway) has a clip of some Disc Golf folks partying and putting into a portable basket in the infield.

Also Carl Edwards is a recreational Disc Golfer. Carl runs the #99 Roush owned Ford.

White Clay should be an easy 10 down course...at least it was when I played it. It was a good course. Had some variety...in the middle of some changes when I played it...had to walk ahead here and there....I would imagine it's better marked now. I'd play it again...given the chance.

Can't they just watch it at home in Hi-Def, a lot cheaper!
I am lost by the wording on the U question. Skipping white clay, or not and playing it first thing in the morning, I am 10 minutes from there right now. Shot a -4 at Dover, only course I kept for today. Couldn't throw all of Killens due to insane ivy, Lums I forget, Riverview was for warm-up and Camp was about 4-5 down.

You don't follow NASCAR.....I knew there was a reason I didn't like you!!!! You really should get out more!!! Ha!

Well just kidding...I don't even know you.

The Cup guys go to Pocono next weekend. The following weekends in order.... they head to Michigan, CA, New Hampshire, Daytona, Chicago and Indy.

The Nationwide Series Heads to TN followed by KY then off to Milwakee, Wisconsin. Take note if your heading in any of those directions..

Lum's Pond, I like call the "lumber Yard" What's the number of "U" shaped hole and is that plays into the 'planted' forest?

What's next? White Clay?

Still like to hear how your shooting at some of these courses.
