Disc Golf Adventures - MacIntyre Park

Monday morning of Spring Break, T and I drove up to Thomasville, Georgia to check out the disc golf course at MacIntyre Park. The well-manicured course has twelve holes and features a creek that comes into play many times. We picked the right time of year to visit as the azaleas were all in bloom, but it would also be nice in the summer as there are many big shade trees.

The first hole (first photo) is under a gorgeous live oak tree near the corner of Washington and Mitchell Streets.

The holes are well-marked, have concrete tee pads and most have benches nearby. The park also has picnic pavilions and a playground. In the photo below you can see the creek and some of the azaleas. A few of our discs made it into the creek (Kite floats but Champion Eagle sinks!) but it was not hard to retrieve them. The water is not deep nor is the creek wide, except in a few spots. 

The course has great signs at each tee pad with aerial views of the hole and its target as well as directions to get to the next hole (see upper left quadrant of graphic). The older signs - see the blue sign with the yellow 2 peeking out from behind the new sign? - are from an older version of the course and can be a little confusing. Luckily the first two line up fairly well with the current fairways. 

We enjoyed this course - the creek really added to the difficulty and challenge - and it's always fun to play in a new location. We recommend it!
