The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

15 miles from Charleston, my GPS just shuts off with the 'blue screen of death'. I don't know why, but I also don't have a phone signal or a paper map of the area. It won't go back on but for flickering like the screen is broken.
I can't really afford and don't want to have to get a new one. I find the hotel and check in earlier than planned. Figuring maybe the car-socket fuse blew for the 2nd time (last was about a year ago at work), I pop a new one in (I carry spares) and it fixes the problem! Turns out it wasn't charging because the fuse was blown. Phew.

My hotel is ghetto. They didn't have my reservation, even though I showed them it on my phone. 20 minutes later I get into a room, and have to switch because it wasn't cleaned yet like they thought. Great to be back on the road!


Aiken, SC- Odell Weeks:Now has cement tees, someone needs to write directions for it not just an address. Nice city park setting, bordered by 2 roads, a community center and a parking lot. No hazards besides a walking path, far enough off the fairway on a few holes. Mostly open with large tree trunks framing shots but allowing you to throw anything. A couple turnovers, one big RHBH hyzer spike option. Fun to play for beginners, good enough for someone who lives here to not have to drive out to Augusta all the time. Has map online, and stocked in a box at the msg. board. Tees marked too, very easy to figure out. How nice.

Denmark, SC- Crestwood Golf:A rather cheap (not like $ cheap-it's 11$ with a cart) and boring, long and open golf course. The golf part would be bad if you played that silly game, torn greens, fire ants to stop your ball from rolling, no cart paths, patchy fairways. Only a few minimal water traps and greens, tees, sand traps just not in play as OB anywhere! Nothing tight. Windy. A few holes over 600'. Definitely take the cart, but not worth a long drive just to check it out if you live 'nearby'. Can be shot sub-54, even though 8,800'!

North Charleston, SC- Park Circle:As it implies it goes around in a circle. Problem being, you have to cross a busy giant round-a-bout (about) 7 times as you play, from hole to hole. Cars can come flying around corner which is semi-blind for them and for you, and cross up to 6 lanes. Surprising that this course was allowed due to the hazard of having pedestrians cross constantly without a crosswalk. Use the common sense you should have learned as a child, look both ways and run. Semi-long, nothing out of reach but a few over 350', nothing extremely short. Plays flat through some thick bushes and tall pines. Some tricky/pointless shots. Most baskets hidden, and no tee signs. Map is available online, but it doesn't show hole #'s. Finding it, parking, and #1 is tricky. Join the locals as I did and it is better. Uses dual tees (most now cement, slowly upgrading it seems) to make 18 holes for 9 baskets. Well maintained and clean.

Tomorrow: Charleston- Trophy Lakes and Tidal Creek and more.

Yes Sir you have to watch the traffic around the Circle for sure, sounds like you had a pretty good time over all. Wish I could have joined you, but of course there is work. Have fun with Trophy Lakes today, hook up with anyone out there and I am sure you will have a great time.

Glad you figured it out Ben! But, like I told you, humankind has figured out how to travel all over the world for thousands of years without a GPS. It is doable.
