Dan, I grew up in P-burg and still return there to visit family. I left there after school in '81. The course in Lincoln park is real short with tiny concrete tees. It's fun though, and afterwards you can hit 1106, or Chicken Marys, then drop into Mooremans for a brew.
Pack a lunch if you are gonna play blue valley. I would recommend playing WW.
You'll need to set up base camp near hole one at Blue Valley. Spend some days there acclimating to the altitude. Then get up really early to make the arduous trek to camp 2 near the crest of hole 6. Eat hardy, prep the oxygen tanks and rest well that night. Hike day two crosses a couple expansive valleys then requires a risky traverse before the final push to the top of the ridge line at hole 12's camp 3. Blisters and full body aches will keep you tossing and turning that night. So be prepared to make the final assault the next day without much sleep. Before the sun rises, begin the push to the peak. Even with oxygen tanks, the accent through the final holes will be a challenge to your very existence. Upon reaching your goal, take in the view and relish in the joy of conquering BV, the moment is short lived, but will be remembered for a lifetime.
Back to reality. It's just a disc golf course!
You could certainly WALK the courses, play one of them or at least a few holes on each of them.
Also my son has a swim meet the weekend of July 25-26th. So I will not be coming to town until Monday the 27th. Will players still be allowed to practice on the courses on Monday or will the courses be shut down for final prep work? If I can't practice then I thought I would volunteer to help with something when I show up. Let me know. Thanks
Monday is a practice day...there's nothing else going on that day, except for the player's meeting at 7PM at the Westin. Courses will be setup in their Worlds configurations by July 21st.
