Is it better to have a "lame course" than no course at all?
Actually, Van Zee is a "cool" course. The City of Port Orchard offered the WSDGA to design and install a disc golf course at Van Zee Park. The park is located on one of the main roads into town and is very accessible to play a quick round on the way into or out of town. The available land that was allocated for the course was only approximately four acres because of the ball fields and the in-ground water tank. With such a small amount of land available, the WSDGA decided that the West Sound needed a course that was beginner friendly.
The current layout still challenges the experienced players. Try playing a round with only your putter. You don't have to use a driver off the tee every time. It is a short course, but because of the elevation changes, a player is still required to execute a good throw for the birdie. Most of the greens are on a slope and you will have to decide whether to go for it or play safe.
Van Zee park is great course for a newbie and the experienced player looking for some ace opportunities.
Oh yeah, did you manage to stop on the tee for hole #8 and check out the view of the Olympic Mountains?
