Anyone ever play this track?  Headed out there this week and thinking about it.

If you too happen to be traveling this Monday and are in Manhattan and would like to throw here let me know.

2 things about that course...

#1--You have to pay to enter Tuttle Creek State Park to get to the course. It's a small amount $5 +/-. That being said the entry post is rarely manned, but you are suppose to leave the cash in an envelope and take a parking tag.

#2--Take a good map of the course, there a couple of holes that are in odd spots.

Other then that all good, enjoy.

Fun, fairly easy course. Baskets homemade years ago and need some repair but are functional. Some big beautiful trees to throw under and/or around. Lake comes into play on a few holes. A drainage creek is thrown over twice as well.

Ask Jeff O. He won tourney - (tied intermediate) out there a few weeks ago.

It's a pretty fun course.  Fairly open overall, with medium to long holes combined with mostly flat terrain and a water hole as bonus. 

Also make sure you play Warner Park if you have time!

This is the course that gave me my love for disc golf.  It's a nice little course.  Nice driving lanes, with a few challenging holes.  Water in play for 4-5 holes, but several of those are 2' deep stream.  #13 is a nice water challenge.  Not too long, other than one hole.  Nice atmosphere.  The only thing that sucks in the $5 parking fee.  Pretty flat.  There's a swimming beach less than 50 yards away from one of the holes as well, if it gets too hot. 

Lots of memories from that course....
