Only problem with moving 18 into the woods on the right side is the Black Tee for 1 is insanely far. I can foresee most of the big dawgs throwing right into the Red Tee or close to it (if they don't nail it straight). Or even someone from the White Tee just letting go too late and releasing to the right. There is a good cluster of trees though. But I agree, there can be some great shots from inside the woods. And you're welcome.

Scott R and Mike E thanks for the feedback on the red tees. I just went through them again (in my head) and I think the two holes we want to target right now are 6 and 18. Hole 6 red is kind boring and on sloped ground. I like Scott Ransleys suggestion of moving it to a flat area and having it play over the pond (or around if you want to play safe) from the top of the hill. Hole 18 red also could change as the hyzer does seem redundant and it there is a lot of opportunity to make a cool ... more

***PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT***
When playing the Picnic Course please be aware that this is SHARED USE AREA. If you encounter other park users on some of the holes please inform them kindly what you are doing, and ask them nicely to let you throw. SKIP THE HOLE if necessary and come back to it later. Other option is to "send a blocker" to deflect shots from hitting other park users. PLEASE TREAT THE OTHER NON-DISC GOLF PARK USERS WITH RESPECT AND CARE. It is a privilege to even have this course and if we screw up then the course could be gone forever.

I only know that when they ripped it out after the tourney last month, they did it at 9am. So hopefully, we should be playing by 11 or 12.

When I originally went & played the Red Tee's earlier this week, my caddy was being a bit of a grump so I had to cut it short. But I came back out Han Solo this morning to review this course Proppa. The Red Tee's @ Chuck D offer a nice challenge for the newer player or for someone that is a first timer at Indy. Most the holes are a blow out for the seasoned player, but IMO still offer a decent challenge on a number of holes for us. I like a number of the tees and how they a ... more

Anyone up for a round today? Say 11 or 12? Just for fun or as part of a review. Anyone?

Heading out the review & play the Red's tomorrow afternoon (work is a little slow this week). Scott's review below though will be tough to match :) Dude nailed it perfectly.

I played the reds for the first time on Sunday. If the goal was to appeal to beginners, I think they succeed. I was hoping they might offer a little different shot variety, so that maybe I would have the urge to play them occasionally as a change of pace. I am not sure that will happen. Not convinced they will get much use except by beginnners. I categorized the holes into groups as follows: Cat 1: Deuceable by all. Average players kick themselves if they don’t deuce it. Cat 2: ... more

Has the Picnic Course been fully installed yet? I went there last weekend and only the back nine on the picnic side was installed. Thanks

didn't mean to say it was a potential par4 hole lol

Daniel J Lee    November 8, 2010 at 6:38pm

I will reiterate this for you Jamie, meant to put it this way: "I'm sorry, but the new 16 white is impossibly duecable (for most people). Unless you get a miraculous/accidental roll over to the basket,this is a challenging par3, if not- BOGIE hole.
OKAY- IF you can throw a 500ft bomb, then it MIGHT be deucable."

It is a challenging par 3 because you have to have a good drive AND good up-shot. Easy 4 if you mess up either one.

I liked the old 16 but the new one is fine, too. I've only played the new one from the whites. Having to throw past that single tree in the middle of the fairway adds a fair challenge to the hole. As a righty, you want to land a the crest of the hill and skip towards the basket, I imagine.

Personally, I think the course is a little easier than I remember it. Then again, I might be thinking of the original Loco IV layout.
