  • wanting some course suggestions for vegas

    Allison and I are probably going to vegas for her 50th B-Day (Oops, I mean 39th B-Day)
    so I am looking for suggestions for courses, will probably hit 2 of them
    i have been doing homework on DGCR, but i thought i would throw it out here.

    1. Sunset Park is fun. Big, manicured, flat. Plays amongst numerous ball fields, quite playable. One round here is a full outing. I love the back "nine", big holes, big lines, good trees.
    2. Mountain Crest Park is fun, but more heavily used by park-goers. Massive winds can make it challenging.
    3. Red Ridge is a fun, links-style 9-hole. I found it best for quick in and out. It is actually quite challenging when you play all the landscape beds OB, as I did.

    I have not tried the other area courses.

      This place http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvOBC6S56LI Unbelievably tight (yet defined) fairways. Not too long but you need to be accurate or you might be knocking on a "neighbors" door to get your disc back (I had to do it once but they were very nice). It's not too far from Mountain Crest Park so you can play both in a day.

        i was already kinda planning on red ridge, it looks quick and fun
        have had a few suggestions for sunset, i thought it looked like it could be busy with other park users, but it doesnt sound like it get too bad

          I did see this one on DGCR also and it looked pretty cool and fun, but I wasnt sure how busy it would be, and if its a regular park or just a course

            It's a course with a walking path running through it. When I played it I saw no other disc golfers and only a couple of walkers. I've played far better and more memorable courses but this course is one of a kind in design and is still great fun. My wife doesn't throw far but is incredibly and consistently accurate and so it suited her game fine.

              Mountain Crest is a must! Cason's has some nice shots but it's three baskets with nine different approaches, but the park was empty so I had it to myself. Skipped out on Piccole because it was just way to windy, and even the most accurate thrower could catch some wind and go OB.
