I just wanted to know if anyone remembers or has ever played the original disc golf course in Ames at the Arboretum. I left Ames back in 1995 to move out here to Colorado. However, back in 1983 when I was in school at Iowa State (makes me old now), we had an 18 hole object course at the Arboretum complete with a par 2 (the sundial) all the way up to a par five.
I really can't remember all of the holes anymore. The first hole played down from the street to the big pine tree across the creek (by the bridge). After that you went up a hill to a big tree on the right. That's when I can't remember any more of the holes.
Anyway, I actually met someone out here who played the course as well. When I played there we only threw with the big 165g Whamos. I remember the first time I saw somebody with disc golf discs. I thought that was just plain weird. Now my home course is Cottonwood Creek here in Colorado Springs.
