Athens Regional Park Disc Golf Course

Posted on Jul 6th 2010
Professionally designed course. Dual tees (short and long) and dual baskets (18 red and 18 yellow), so the course can play as 72 different holes. A good mix of open, wooded, hilly, and even some water hazard holes too. Good concrete tees and tee signs, and the course is just one mile from I-75.

Everything about this course is very nice accept its only a 9 hole. The site says 18 but they include the pro chains as well. New large pads and hole descriptions at every hole. It can get a little confusing finding your way around the first time you play. There are a few holes with water making it pretty challenging and pretty easy to lose a disc. All in all a very fun and well maintained course...just needs 9 more holes.

The disc golf course at Athens Regional Park is a very challenging course with lots of long tight fairways. The course has two tee pads and two baskets per hole which are all playable at any given time. It has a great mix of wooded/open and left/right holes with some water hazards along the course as well. Overall a pretty fun course but I wouldn't exactly consider it a must play. It's not a bad course but I wouldn't travel too far to play it when there are many other courses near by that just simply out class this course. Some of the wooded fairways are a little too unforgiving in my opinion but like I said, I do enjoy the choice of being able to play several different layouts at your choice. Pro's aren't going to enjoy the Short to Short layout and newer player's aren't going to enjoy the Long to Long layout but there are happy mediums for both. Overall, if you are in the area, this would be a great course to play but definitely not a must play.
