The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Who knew it actually gets cold in the south? Today was in the low teens this morning, with some ICED over creeks.

Newberry, SC- Hunter:Short 12 holes in a city park, I can drive from one side to the other in one direction of the park. Small creek runs straight down the middle, flanked by hills. Large pines and other, wider small trees. One blind sharp dog leg left, one 350' turnover through lots of pines. Easy but good variety and wind/water add strokes. Well maintained, clean. Dirt tees, well marked- but tees non directional so I threw at the wrong basket once.

Newberry, SC- Stoney Hill:Private, I called the owner and he came out to show me around. Set on hills that were clear-cut this century, so not many large trees, many smaller ones and fresh growth forest, tall grass. Some creeks in play, one peninsula basket in the woods on a long hole. Big elevation changes, including a basket raised way up on a steep mound just past a deep rock pit on the finishing hole. Bad putt could not only roll away but go OB 20' down a cliff. Don't come up short. Needs some mowing but the mower is currently broken, I know how that goes from experience. Plenty of par-4's, some local rules like 'must land here'. Begins with tough par-3's, then some parkable holes, then a lot of pa4-'s. A workout. Carpet tees, minimal signs, map online- must get permission anyway. Good potential- only a year and a half old and a work in progress.

Greenwood, SC- Lander U:GET THE MAP, otherwise it's impossible to navigate. Packed onto campus, there are plenty of LONG walks to the next holes, adding a good 30-45 minutes to the time it takes to play! Includes a 5 minute walk back to your car after #18. Also tough to find #1 without map. It has some decent shots for a campus course, beginning with a shot between two corners of buildings (a cute chick walking by said she hit the building the first time she played). Strays away from possibly hitting cars, buildings, pedestrians as much as possible. Small creek. Dirt tees marked with a wooden board and a sign-holder missing the signs. Nothing long, but a few open holes. Some tight shots, some good hill use. Blue Discatchers.

Due West, SC- Fleet Links:Another campus course that by default can't be well layed out, requiring another 5 minute walk back to your car as it plays away as you go. Map on board at #1, but tough to figure out where to park. Study map or you won't figure it out too easily. Dirt tees, cheesy baskets, some of which are not properly assembled leaving a tiny sweet spot to aim for. Basic short and medium shots, one sharp turn around a building and a row of bushes. One 350' turnover. A few easy putter/mini/pringles can lid shots.
