My Favorite Course in Nashville
Pros: This really is my favorite course in Nashville. It has a great design with a wide variety of terrain and challenges for both left and right handers. The community of golfers surrounding the course keep it in good condition, and there’s always several golfers playing when you show up. The landscape is diverse and inviting. Pretty nice tee pads. Multiple pin locations, and updated signs were just added. Location in the city!
Cons: Not much here, but the baskets are a bit shallow, so you might occasionally lose a putt that would stick somewhere else. Some might complain that it’s too wooded, but that’s part of what makes it 7 Oaks (IMO).
Other Thoughts: A really relaxing course to play since there’s not much elevation change. You can play through quickly if you desire, but it’s not boring or short. Might be the smartest designed course in town.
Needs a Little TLC, but a Great Course
Pros: Great Course in the Heart of Birmingham. It’s really well designed, and has 6 extra holes for a total of 24 holes of disc golf. Offers a variety of challenges and makes really good use of the terrain. Seemed to have a local following of golfers, there was even a local pro there hanging out in the park offering advice, and selling discs out of his van. Good tees and good baskets.
Cons: Was a little run down. Needs new tee signage on certain holes, and better signage in the park, so that you know where to start (we wandered a bit before figuring it out). It’s kind of in the ghetto (not that I care, but some might). It needed mowing when we were there.
Other Thoughts: Really enjoyable course with a great design. It’s rather open, but makes good use of terrain and trees. This course will continue to challenge players of all levels, but it’s not outlandishly hard. I’ll definitely visit it again if I’m in Birmingham.
Great Beginner Course
Pros: We were on vacation at Smith Lake is Jasper and it was close!
Great course for the whole family to play because it wasn’t too difficult
Actually used the terrain rather well, I’ve definitely seen worse.
Cons: The majority of the front nine are all in 200ft or less range, this is a little bit “weak sauce”
Tee pads are grass. Pretty easy, but will get boring for advancing players
Other Thoughts: This course is what it is. It’s not horrible, I think it’s a great course for newer disc golfers, and to introduce others to the game. It plays rather quick and easy. It could improve with concrete pads and better signage, and maybe a slight redesign of the front 9 to make it more challenging. Fun day with the family though!
Powdered Rit Dye is the way to go. The Powder brings out tremendous color. Amazing! This is an Innova San Marino Roc with a Inverse Nautical Star Design
Champion Orc with Smashing Pumpkins "Zero" design
It actually took me three tries to get this dye right. The first time I cut out the stencil it was backward when I affixed it to the disc because I forgot that the image would be reversed. Since I had never dyed words before, I wasn’t thinking about it. The second try, I re-cut the stencil, and I dyed the disc for 30 minutes, but my dye was too watered down to substantially make a mark on Champion plastic. The third and final time, I finally got it right. I upped the concentration of the dye and left it exposed for about 3.5 hrs. It probably caused a slight bit of bleeding because of the long exposure, but I’m still pretty happy with the result.
She’s the one for me. She’s all I really need oh yeah.
