Recently I was lucky enough to play the Lennox Disc Golf Course in Urbandale, Iowa. It was windy and cold, and the open nature of the course meant there was relief from the wind. My discs bounced all over heck on the frozen ground, all the baskets had chains hanging from them so they didn’t catch as well as they could have, and there was a busy road that was close enough to three holes that it was a concern in how I threw. What I liked about this course was it was in an industrial setting. Sure I would rather play an awesome course in mature, native vegetation, but this course took those ugly industrial lawns and created a recreational benefit – and it would be fun to play the nine holes on your lunch hour!
The sad part of this course is the baskets could be repaired and other course repairs
made pretty easily and cheaply – some one just has to care and this course could be pretty spiffy.
To sum up: 1) making use of what would otherwise be waste land = awesome! 2) it is a sad thing that nobody loves this course.
