Ferguson Park is a 9 hole short course with dirt tees and Innova baskets.
None of the holes are longer than 200', so there is no reason to bring your new long range driver here, it wont come out of your bag.
The course does make good use of the landscape to create challenges on most of the holes.
This is a great course for short game and putting practice.
After playing courses with PDGA baskets for years, I find Innovas' Disc catcher baskets challenging due to the steel band that circles the top of the chains. I find alot of my shots hitting this steel band and bouncing away from the basket. If you become skilled at hitting these targets, you will find the Mach 3 and 5 targets easier to hit, with thier increased sweet spot.
#1 tee is behind a large boulder, which blocks a low drive unless you are 7 feet tall. This is a great hole to practice your thumber, or overhand shot, in order to clear the rock. The basket is slightly uphill from the tee.
#2 is a tight shot through a small grove of trees. This also encourages you to try a non conventional shot, like a roller, to clear the trees.
#3 is just a short pitch to a basket slightly right of center from the tee. Some trees have recently been cut down here, but enough remain to make you have to pick a tight line in order to fly your disc all the way to the target.
#4 is a straight shot to the target, which is surrounded by short brush and some trees.
#5 plays towards the fence on the course border, an overthrow will easily go out of bounds. Trees down the right side will force a RHBH shooter to throw an anheizer shot to the basket here.
#6 is a little shorty ace run.
#7 is one of the longer holes, downhill to the target which is slightly left of center.
#8 is a blind shot, up and over a small knoll, through a grove of trees, then down to the target. This is another good place to practice thumbers and overhand shots, in order to make it through the gap in the trees.

#9 is also a blind shot to the basket, with some large trees and a berm guarding the area just in front of the basket.

There are bathrooms near the childrens play area,which are open most of the year.
This is a great course to bring young children to, with the play area, and a short walk down the driveway will take you to a small dock on the lake if you wanted to drop a line after a round.
