I have never attempted the pro tees, but they look brutally hard! I will be reviewing the amateur tees only. This course has multiple holes that would be "signature holes" on most other courses. Some pruning is needed but not a lot...#2 safe landing area has become 90% blocked by tree foliage as opposed to 6 years ago when you had a wide open look and an ace try. An apple tree hanging directly on the entire tee prevents use of the tee on 14. Still the biggest problem with this course is the amou ...

This course features holes that average over 500feet. Wayyy too long. Another strike against it is that there is a terrible need for pruning. This course could have been laid out much better if they had consulted an actual disc golf pro. The trees here are not the tall forest canopy variety where the foliage is fighting for sunlight and creating a tall canopy but rather the full sun stand alone trees with huge canopies that are the remnants of the old ball golf course. On several holes these tre ...

I enjoyed the course beginning with the course map posted as you near the first tee. A quick photo with the iphone was all it took to give me the confident feeling to begin my round knowing I wouldn't get "lost". Good use of trees in this moderately wooded course although I had brought my "A" game that day and had many birdies (more than average) due to well placed shots from the tee. The back 9 seemed to get a bit tighter and the birdies began to stop but I found that all holes were par unless ...

This is a perfect example of what happens when a course is forced into a park where disc golf does not belong. The holes are odd and often weaving thru a playground. Tees are sometimes missing and on about a third of the holes the next tee is nearly impossible to find due to the flow of the course being awkward and poorly arranged. The problem is that the city of East Moline doesn't own a large park so mustering up this 9 hole course where a disc golf course doesn't belongwas their token effort ...

Played this course with my wife and son and we all agreed the course was dirty and the baskets were terribly beat up. A few holes were too close together and my wife nearly got hit by someone who didn't even give us a courtesy warning shout, much less an apology after the fact!!!. Probably the worst disc golf day Ive ever had. Nice tees and loved the elevation changes but would like to see a little better design that spreads the holes out more for safety and might be time for new baskets.

Camden 1 = A great mix of open holes where you can grab the heavy plastic and some wooded/tunnel holes that require pinpoint accuracy or improvising.

Camden 2 = Carved out of a stand of trees 5 years ago, this course is coming along nicely due to the long hours by the dedicated volunteers who work on it. It is a real test if that's what you are looking for.

Even with tee signs I was lost due to the poor design and layout of the course.

I know the course is old but that doesn't prevent upgrades like concrete teepads. Aside from that there were a lot of short holes and I found the course to be no challenge at all except for getting around and not getting carried away by gnats and mosquito's. Add concrete tees and it's a C course
Richmond Hill Park › May 28, 2013

I enjoyed the course layout except that signs, arrows, markers etc need maintenance. Almost half of the tee signs were either missing or the information had peeled off so finding our way around took some effort. I created an updated course map http://www.discgolfscene.com/coursepictures/52775_l.jpg and printing it ahead of time will be necessary if it is your first time. The course has had a moderate overhaul in the past few years so even if you played it several years ago you should rev ...
