Seneca Creek state park in Maryland

Postby koronin » Mon Apr 23, 2007 8:03 am

If you're close to this course, go. If you're not that close to the course, make the time and go!

I just played the new 27 hole design this weekend and was floored. It's HUGE, with great tight-wooded holes, semi-open holes with lots of disc eating trees and the elevation just goes up and down and up and down and up and down...

To me, the BEST course in the Washington DC Metro area. Very physically and mentally challenging.

Cheers,
Jeffrey

I'm looking forward to playing the new course redesign. I'll be flying back on the red eye tonight...hitting up the new course tomorrow depending on the weather. Really looking forward to this weekend though....

I'm driving down Friday and hoping to have time to play the new layout before the Soiree. So far, just from the pictures I've seen, it looks amazing. I enjoyed the course before although I didn't think it was great, but now it promises to be a really amazing course.

I never played the old layout, but will be at the Soiree this weekend and can't wait to try it out!

I don't t hink I will get a chance to get there early on Friday, so it looks like I will be playing blindly - that is just fine with me though, I have no problem with that at all!!!

Redesign looks nice. It has added a lot of tight woods holes where control is key.

The new course played great for the tourney. Some of the woods tee boxes were soupy, but with only one total hole to really crank on it didn't matter (15). I would love to have played connect a hole on some of the new ones....like hole 3->4. I also really enjoyed playing some of the original holes in the long to long positions, new hole 10 comes to mind. Still threw more rollers on this course than anywhere else I've ever been. Maybe the shot of me crushing a firebird into a cedar (hole 23 short) and it sticking on disc golf monthly segment is why I started keeping in on the ground. I'm not used to those types of trees. That hole, 23, in the long positions is the typical seneca shot. If you don't have a roller, you will not 2 this hole ever. Without a roller a 3 is very tough.

agreed, this course ate me up this weekend at the event!
without a legit roller or flick in my bag, I struggled. I still finished middle of the pack, but I really need to start to learn these shots as I think it will greatly improove my game!


overall, beautiful course and quite challanging!
