Could someone please send me the contact information of the park contact person to president@discontinuum.org ?? I want to thank them.

I was able to play Camden 1 & 2 for the first time on Friday. My dad and I had a grea time. I am absolutely blown away in the amount of work that has been put into Camden 2. I have not played a course like it and loved everything about it. Keep up the good work guys!

The current layout is pretty awesome.

I like how 6 winds down the hill. What's the popular/effective tee shot here? I layed up with a Buzzz and plopped a couple putters down the hill for a 4. (Is that a par?) Just curious to see what others have tried.

What are considred par 4s out there anyway? Hole 4? 13? 17?

Just wondering.

I throw a turnover putter over the short pin and that usually gives me a straight look down the pipe.

The par 4s out there right now are, 4,5,6,8,13 & 17

I throw eagle hyzer window - that way if I make a mistake it usually kicks into the fairway. If you use the big window on the left and make a mistake it can be down the hill in the trees (very difficult to recover).

The upshot I struggle, but try to hit the fallen tree bunker that's 25short of the pin.

If you kick left down the hill on 6 look to poke your second shot through the path by 7 tee. Still a possible birdie.

ive kicked down the hill accidently the past few times ive played 6. if you are far enough down you can get a three but if you are stuck in the middle of the hill it can be nasty. i love the long pin on 6, i almost always get a three :twisted:

Chris, the amount of work you have invested into raising your baby over the last couple of years is simply incredible. By the very nature of volunteer work, the amount of appreciation will never come close to the amount of personal time and sacrifice you and others have donated to Camden II. Just know that the current product, which isn't close to final yet, is an extremely FUN and FAIR, fairly technical disc golf course which has become my #1 option among the amazing courses of the QC. West Lake is still my favorite course, but Camden 2 is far more playable and absolutely perfect for the dog. This course is primarily responsible for getting me back into disc golf again this year.

THANK YOU, SPRAGUE

Hope it clears up for ya! Even if you don't have a tour guide you'll be able to navigate the course. Orange Guy conjured up some little tee signs from plywood that each have a creative representation of the hole number. Here’s a link to the map he also created for the club website. Have fun. Don't melt.

And bring your boots ... just because the rain stops, it'll still be plenty muddy.

And after you love the course, come back Sunday. :wink:
