The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

So, today I traveled out of town to play in Lafayette and the course there was okay. It really wasn't marked, so that took points off of its rating.

It had duel tees, and the course didn't seem to flow well, so I spent alot of time looking for tees and such. Difficulty was a 2/3. Built for your average player, not a beginner course, certainly, many routes required extreme concentration and skill, and I had alot of luck today. Nothing too long, most around 300'

I had fun, I hope to play Fly By Faith next time I go to Lafayette. Its at a church

Allen = cool guy

Pieradise = good course, but I still like honeybear. I felt like pieardies was alot of chuck & pray shots, Instead of honeybear being nice,short and controlled.

I grew up in Peru and man was that a good place for a disc golfer to grow up. 3 courses within about 10 miles when I was younger, now Pier has a course so there are 4 courses. I believe there is also another private course on the outside of town near highway 24...I saw baskets back in the woods there a couple years ago. Honeybear is an ok course but definitely not the best imo. I went to college at Purdue for a year and a half and when I was there, Ross Hills was the best. I played Ross Hills a couple months ago though and it had changed a lot. They added more holes to what used to be the front nine and what used to be the back nine was confusing and not well marked. The hole Avenger Ray talked about that goes WAY down into the woods was the sweetest hole on the course but when I was there recently it wasn't there...either that or I couldn't find it. It sure was a hike, though! I played Murdoch a couple times and it was ok but I agree that it's not well marked. In Peru, I definitely like Pieradise the best. Allen's a way cool guy, too!

I usually just do a mix of both. I decide that since the tees where hard to find and there we no signs, I'd take some off the score, so I just take a 3 or 4 off the rating. But for rating difficulty I have a system. I look at length, tree amounts, hazards, and routes.

The routes at Murdoch required concentration because of the trees you had to put it through, and how far away the basket is. Because when I walk up to a tee at most parks, I just think of ripping off a huge drive and throwing it asw hard as I could and HOPING I get close to the basket. But at Murdoch, I had to aim my shots well to fit around trees and such, but the baskets were still beyond my normal shot range. My average drive is like...230 maybe. most baskets were in the 260-300 range

Plus on a few holes, if you didn't concentrate, you drive would go into this swamp.

Do you have a system in which to rate courses or do you just throw out an arbitrary number? I plan on playing multiple new courses soon and am intersted in how other people rate courses.

Also, when you say that they routes require concentration, is there a lot of trees or what makes them difficult?
