We at Still Waters Farm are looking forward to your visit. Come play one of the finest "Championship" caliber disc golf courses in the region. Open all year for daily play. Nominal "greens fee" accepted to help offset the grounds keeping expenses. The course was designed by Shade Hogg and Joey Johnson in cooperation with Mayor Johnnie Ganus of Govan, SC.
The "Red" (recreational) course plays to 3195 ft. while the "Gold" (Professional) setup measures approximately 10,622 feet in length. The par for the Gold" course is 72. The "front 7" are moderately short holes while the "back 11" come at you from start to finish. Significant winds and gently rolling hills accasionally add flavor to the mix. For example, hole #11 measures 1320 ft (one quarter mile long) with absolutely no earthbound obstacles (trees, shrubs, etc), while #12 measures in at 1000 ft, has a tree line guarding the right side of the fairway and the green but, plays downhill and often downwind. Both are listed as par 5's on the scorecard. The par 3, #9 hole plays 297 ft, downhill across an out of bounds road and is an ace temptation. The course layout consists of four par 5's, ten par 4's, and four par 3's.
Some less experienced players trying their hand (or arm) at the "Pro" setup, may shoot scores over one hundred for one round, while long armed, more experienced disc slingers that also have accuracy in their arsenal can break par. Many players will feel like they do playing traditional golf where bogey on some of the longer holes is considered a good score. It takes getting used to. I'll have some photos available soon.
