Scott City Community Park Disc Golf Course

About 65 miles away from Harrison Road Disc Golf Course is the still being completed Scott City Community Park Disc Golf Course. Kelly and I (and the pets) played the course on 20 October 2013 and had

good time. The tee pads and baskets are in place, there are no signs (except spray paint on the tee pads), and the holes in the woods (#’s 10, 13, 14, 16 and 17) are still being cleared.The course is fun! The course has some good elevation changes, long wide-open holes, and tight woodland shots. The #11 tee pad is close to the walking path and a walker stopped to ask us about disc golf. The course is close to the two courses in Cape Girardeau and better – I think it will see a lot of activity and break in nicely.

We started on hole 16 because we couldn’t find hole 1. My drive landed within 20′ of the basket in a festival of thorny vines. Of course, you couldn’t walk the flight path because it was a brier-filled ravine, you had to walk around to a fence line and then were able to access the pin area. It took two strokes to throw out of the thorns and one more to putt it in – from a drive that should have been a birdie! Yee Haw!

So, if you find yourself in the Cape Girardeau area and want to play, this is a pretty good option that should improve over time.
