1-probably close to 700', across a valley, on the backside of a hill for the first basket, road ob behind the basket about 100' away(par 4)
2-downhill 500' shot, with road ob behind the basket, about 90'(par 3)
3-througha valley and up hill higher, landing zone about 400-500' then another 300' foot shot, water OB to the right (par 5)
4-open fair way first 1/2 300-400', then through wooded area dogleg left across little valley (par 4)
5-Uphill shot about 330' road OB behind basket about 150' (par 3)
6-across Valley again, tight trees give about a 50' window from tee area hole probably ~350' current green slightly protected by trees (par 3)
7-Downhill shot about 650', road OB to the right green on side of hill (par 3)
8-Across Valley about 550', road OB to the right, Wall of Trees line to the left, basket on side of hill, location KEY (par 4)
9-Up hill across a valley to the landing zone ~350-400', dog leg right about another 350', nestled just outside of trees, with wodded area to the right, this combines two hole that we have used in the past (par 5)
Front 9=Par 34
10-uphill through tree line back towards the disc golf shelter, relatively straight on shot, but uphill and about 600' away, the top of the hill is about 550' away, so making it there, you need someone with a CRUSH, elevation on uphill plays a role, as basket is not visible after leaving the tee area (par 4)
11-Down hill about 600' in a cul-de-sac for a green, protected by trees all around, MONSTER arms will get it there to get a view the ret of us humans will try a tomahawk to get over the trees on the second the shot (par 4)
12-Back uphill towards shelter, Tough uphill shot about 550', gree protected by a couple of trees (par 4)
13-Downhill monseter about 900' with the green on the edge of the hill, to a severe drop off, then road OB about 80' behind it (par 4)
14-across the road tee area, road OB left, Woods right, trees in front, only about 450', but winding fairway and tight location make this a tough one (par 3)
15-across Valley, trees to left, road OB right, green sits on rocks about 90' away from road (par 3)
16-back up hill about 500' trees protect the fairway on both sides, and green sits atop the hill, with possibility of roll if short (par 4)
17-about 1000'-across a valley and up 2 tiers, getting to the shade in 1 is great, getting up the hill for the second shot is solid, then hitting the green, road OB on the left basket underneath 2 trees (par 4)
18-Tee through a wall of trees with a few openings (about 1000' again), then heading UPHILL continue to throw with along a valley with angles to the left of the hills. Road OB right and more importantly left. Green is on a peninsula of grass with crazy angle, location of your 4th shot for par is CRUCIAL. (par 5)
Back 9=35
total Par=69

This course is a blast. Take from a weak armed guy that can barely hit 300'. I have been able to get it further on the downhill shots, but if you want to challenge your disc golf game, get up here this weekend

If you're playing the course look for old real estate for sale signs to find the next tee's(they're painted black). These may or may not stay until the permanent signs are in. A couple of holes to keep in mind are......


3's tee is across the street up hill from 2's basket
hole 5 there is a trail marked from 4's basket, the tee is uphill to the left.
hole 7 tee is out towards the street (facing east from 6's basket about 2 o'clock)
8's tee is across the street back towards 2's basket up hill near the concret tables
at 9's tee you can see 12's tee further up the hill by the trees ( keep this in mind so you aren't lost leaving 11's green
14 is across the street from 13's basket

I hope that helps keep anyone fron getting to lost. There are maps posted, I suggest printing one out if you are going to play this course. Take plenty of water with you for the front 9 as you don't come back to your car until after hole 10 ( it's about an hour and 1/2 to play the front 9).

Finally a course to accommodate a wider variety of disc skills. Brilliant!
Here's to the final layout being even longer! Let the whining begin!

Bob Hartness-92

Saturday
Beckett-68
Mark Morales-75
Dirk Hacker-79
Jack Lowe-79

Sunday Dubs

Demian Vela/Dave Zentz-71

Tuesday

I seem to be getting worse, I think that I know what I am doing now, and shoot worst!! URGH!!!!!

Playing this course is nothing like you have done before.  It is golf using discs, not disc golf, if that makes sense.  It is a joym but don't think of it as you would normal disc golf.  Think of it as a golf game using your discs, and you'll get it.

Hope this weekend is great event for those playing!!

through 10, fighting exhaustion so we punted...
Mark Arnold +3
Steve Hoog + 12 or so...

Jack, the original distances you posted, your guesstimates, seemed to be short overall...how did your more exact measurements come about?  

This is a monster, true, and thankfully there's lots of shade along the way...at least the way I played it today. :roll:  .  Considering my general physiological condition right now, I'd worked my a** off from 730 am, and Mark was out in the sun all day himself, I don't consider these scores too far off of reality.  I could easily have been 6 or so over, considering all the rim banging I did for par or bogey.

#8, I agree with Jack, PLACEMENT of your tee shot is of extreme importance.  For lesser arms, basically an upshot to the bottom by the road and the growth.  Then, getting par up the road isn't unreasonable, and you'll reduce the odds of losing something greatly.

Same on #4.  The trees are just in the wrong place for short armers with drivers.  An upshot off the tee was pretty much perfect.
Ace?  I'll take a freakin' BIRDIE!
Steve Hoog, now in St Louis
Bluebird ROCKS!

Thanks for all the helpful input here.  I printed some of this stuff up to take with me to Blue Valley tomorrow.  I should be able to navigate a little easier.

Going to hit Blue Valley around noon and WW around 4:00.

If anyone wants to give me and my bro the Blue Valley tour, you'd be most welcome to meet us there tomorrow.  My cell # is 316-516-3579.  I'll know at 11:00 a.m. about what time I'll be able to arrive, but I plan on playing around noon.  I'm sure we'll get through it OK, but if you want to get some golf in, that sure would be great. :D
