Here are some pictures and brief descriptions of the current 17 hole layout.
Kiosk with course map in front of the first tee
Look for these arrows in the trees near the baskets, they will guide you in the general direction to the next tee.
First hole is a dogleg left with protection down both sides of the lane.
Two is a short shot with a slight right to left turn and some protection blocks the fairway midpoint.
Three is a dogleg right.
Four is a shorty ace run with some decorative seating provided next to the tee.
Five is a wiggle , first right, then left.
Old six is gone, new six is old seven, follow flagging from near the old #6 tee to the #7 teebox, which is now signed #6.
The hole is a narrow lane to a basket heavily guarded by trees and elevated ten feet on a berm.
Seven is a short pitch from an elevated tee to a basket with plenty of protection.
Eight , for now, lives only in the minds of the Arlington Disc Golf Club.
Nine is a dogleg left.
To get to the tenth tee, walk back towards the parking lot, then right to the tee, not the other direction as the map shows.
Ten is the first of the long, open field holes, with no trees, encouraging big drives. Lanes from the tee to the basket are mowed, all the surrounding tall grass is out of bounds. Halfway down the field fairways are widened circular landing zones.
Eleven plays back across the field to a basket with some protection.
Twelve goes back into the woods with a short throw to a protected basket.
Thirteen is a fun little right to left hook around a large tree.
Fourteen once again crosses the field with the same O.B. rules as 10 and 11.
Fifteen is the last of the field holes with finishing hook to the right into a small clearing.
Final turn to the basket
Sixteen is a long shot that follows a narrow winding path through the woods. This path is well travelled by people going from the parking area to the beach, most unaware of the golf course, so caution should be used on both the drive and approach shots here. Stop, look and listen before throwing.
Seventeen is a short run through the trees to a protected basket.
Eighteen is a short narrow shot with a slight right to left hook, the lane is wide open and encourages ace runs.
