Pictures of my home course, Golden Hills Disc Golf Course, in Christiansburg, VA. It's an awesome course to play with 4 different sets of tees that range from beginner all the way up to the vicious gold tees. From the white tees (intermediate tee set) I've birdied 16 out of the 18 holes and the other two are possible with an absolutely perfect tee shot. Every hole is also a potential bogey (or worse) if you have a loose tee shot. I have yet to throw a bogey free round in the three years that I have been playing the course and even the local pros consider a bogey free round to be an accomplishment. All pictures were taken by my brother.


Image

Hole number 3 is probably the signature hole of the course. I think it is around 180' long with about a 65' drop over that distance.

Image

Hole number 5. You can see the basket straight ahead. Picture doesn't show it because it is from 10 feet to the right of the teepad but you have either a hyzer route or a tighter anhyzer route.

Image

Better view of 5's basket.

Image

Hole number 9. Basket is underlined.

Image

Hole number 11. Basket is pretty much in the dead center of the photo but hard to see. Three possible route options: Anhyzer route that I am attempting, big hyzer route to the right of the tree closest to the teepad, and a gutsy super tight dead at the basket route.

Image

Hole 14 with basket underlined. Same route choices as hole 11.

Image

Hole 15's basket.

hehe, where I'm from in VA (Chesapeake Bay area), the creeks we had were at least 2 or 3 times that size. The river that we were next to, the Rappahannock, was about 2 miles across at it's narrowest part, in our region at least. Not to get off the topic of DG, but here's a pic of the creek I lived near, facing out to the river.

damn that is certainly not my idea of a creek. that thing is huge, bigger than the rappahannock river in fredericksburg. I always thought of a creek as a small body of water that carried runoff into rivers and lakes. In those tidal areas those "creeks" are more like tidal controled estuaries. What i would give for some beautiful virginia outdoors at this point.

i love florida, but our woods and outdoors besides the beech are not friendly :cry:

Oh, it is a creek all right, one could walk across most of it... you should see the size of the river that it flows into (it is a mile wide at parts)
