Sandy Creek Park Disc Golf

Sandy Creek Park has one of the largest disc golf courses I have played on. The course has 23 holes over a 782 acre. Unlike other parks, this course encompasses nearly the entire acreage.  Each hole has multiple concrete tee pads and tee markers. A large portion of the course is made up of holes with long, open drives, but for those wanting a wooded challenge, the last section of holes won’t disappoint.

 

The first 8-10 holes of the course are played along the southern section of the park to the right of the park’s driveway.  Most of those holes will have only a few tree obstacles, or be in long open fields.

From there, the course travels across the park’s entrance towards the tennis and basketball courts. The first few holes on this section of the course are also wide, long holes. From there, players begin to approach the lake for a handful of holes along the water’s edge.

After the holes along the lake’s edge, the course gets more difficult as it enters a series of narrow wooded holes along the hillsides.

The course makes its way back out of the woods and returns to the park area near the beginning of the course.
