Im in Orlando for another week or so, anyone played here?

Thinking of hitting up Turkey Lake, there are 2 courses there.

Yep, Turkey Lake is fun. Two courses in one location. There's also two courses at Gordon Barnett Park.

KC native and one of the WyCo Disc Golf Course instigators, Mike Wesley, lives in Rockledge and built a 22-hole course at F. Burton Park in Cocoa. If you have wheels and 30-45 minutes drive time you should cruise out there and check it out too. It's right down 520 from Lone Cabbage Fish Camp so you could get in some disc golf and an air-boat ride in the same trip. Highly recommended little excursion.

Turkey is $5 to play. Totally worth it.  Barnett is in the hood so be done by dark.

Yup, Barnett Park is fun but I tend to opt for Turkey Lake because there is less traffic on the course and it's a pretty nice park. If you are looking to meet area disc golfers though, you'll find more at Barnett than Turkey Lake. I usually see a vendor set up there selling plastic, including course logo discs. Depends on when you go I expect though.

They are a bit shy of a regular sized one, but there are no huge holes on this course.

If you throw one in those trees, its gone.  I think the original course(T1) has three pads alotta holes, at least 2 per.  The turkeynator(T2) is easier but still a fun course. I think Dicks buddy Gregg Hosfeld designed it.  I play them every year when I visit my parents.

T2 had some holes with 3 pads, T1 mostly had 2 pads and 2 positions. I did not lose a disc, either did my Dad (first time playing), he hit a 60 ft putt and is now hooked on DG. Another one bites the dust!

Birdie button!

My son and son-in-law took me out just two years ago and I was hooked.
