The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

to visit, Alaska and Hawaii. Today my route to Rock Hill SC took me into NC briefly, so now I've been to all 48 lower states.

Greenville (Simpsonville), SC- Simpsonville City:Short city park, stays well enough away from other park goers for the most part. Tiny plot of land. Very open- some tight holes and a few trees, but so easy to just throw a hyzer around and obstacle and park every hole. Dual dirt tee boxes, marked by #'ed yellow posts. I'd have played flawless if not for 2 spit throughs on the also yellow baskets. Well maintained, not a bad area, clean. Everything reachable with mid range disc.

Greenville, SC- Timmons:Old and short, longest says 450' but I hyzered over it with a T bird so it's not even 350'. Hole #17 seems to be completely missing- after #16, #18 is right there and no sign of where #17 should be or is, if it ever existed. Well marked, msg board and map (should have checked for #17's top secret location). Lots of steep hills, some tough to climb when covered in leaves. A creek winds through most holes, some baskets perched nearby- shallow and clear, but I found a disc in it. A putter finesse course with elevation and OB and some tight shots. Lots of variety.

Greenville, SC- Holmes:Short neighborhood park packed too tightly, some holes play right alongside others. #5 hidden behind tennis courts, several missing signs but very easy to navigate as it's such a small park and flows well. A few tougher shots, like a 350' uphill, and a short tunnel, otherwise basic and easy open. Some hills. Large trees, well mowed grass. Safe looking area for night play potential. Good for beginners, high visibility.

Greer, SC- Century:I wasn't planning to play it as it says the baskets are gone, but then I found it just went back in. Thanks, Stevo for showing me around and how to play the holes (he's good). Currently- no signs or pads, just flags, without a guide it'd be iffy. Soon to be temp. signs, pads next year, it's undergoing a complete re-design and the parks systems is fully behind it. Mostly through recently well cleared woods, shredded tree debris covered fairways, some stumps and rough stuff loose lying around. One creek. A few par-4's, some easy duece holes and about half tougher par3's through or around a few trees. Has potential when completed. Good design nothing too hokey, just needs more work.

Boiling Springs, SC- Van Du Mar:Best of the day, dual cement tees on very well maintained and varying terrain. Large hills in the thick woods, a creek, two man made swamps to throw over, wide open field shots and more. Largest elevation changes on holes in the area I've seen, including a 500' downhill tunnel. Bonus 19th hole. Not well marked- just a post at the short tee only with the # on it, but I made my way around without any problem and quickly. Takes good shooting to break 57. Hole #10 needs to go, but otherwise a solid course. Fun and different.

Hmm, we need a tank for our fairway.

Glad you enjoyed the Greenville area and found Stevo, you missed Gower Park tho- not much to it, probably the 'worst' of the 3 city parks but still fun with a challenging throw here and there, plus there is a WWII tank in the 18th fairway.
