course info

I played this course for the first time today, and had not seen info anywhere (beyond the PDGA description) so I thought I'd post something here in case there's interest.

The Waterloo Exchange Park course is 27 holes in a well-established park along the Cedar River. Mostly open city park, mature trees. Nice signs. Despite the lack of elevation the course has quite a few interesting holes.

#3 is 784 feet, with the approach shot across a large pond. This reminded me of Indian Hills in Ottumwa except here you don't get to the pond until the last 200 ft before the pin. Must think about how to place your fairway drive for a reasonable approach shot!

#10-17 play on and around a wooded peninsula that looks like it is an island when the river's high. A couple of skip ace opportunities through narrow wooded fairways. #13 is an elevated tee shot into the woods. #14 has the pin planted in the top of a big boulder pile...cool.

#18 has the pin hidden behind a Huge tree trunk, test your hyzer.

Many of the other holes are kind of like Eastern in Davenport, except with bigger trees. A lot of holes in the 320-420' range. Not a lot of variety in #19-27 but it's always nice to have more than 18 holes in the same park!

i think the mightiest hole on that course would be 2 (i believe) the ultra long hole. the first hole across the pond. i love that course. the hole right after that where you go across the pond again i grip-locked it right into the ground(pond) and it skipped up and hydro-planed across the entire pond only to slide up the bank for an easy par. i call it my walking on water shot. very amazing sight to see. and lucky

Yes, I played this course this morning and it was a beast. Long course, bugs are all over. Made it across the pond on hole 3 but had trouble with hole 4. Lost two discs > <
