The disk golf course was very much affected by the number of downed trees from Hurricane Michael, but has been cleared. It is open for play, however, holes 13, 14, and 15, have been relocated/rerouted due to down trees. All 18 holes of “the Bear” are now open and remains the challenge that it always was. Come on out and test your skill!
The newest addition to the recreational opportunities is “The Bear,” a championship disc golf course that is a “Fierce Adventure.” The 18 holes are situated in the rolling landscape of the main campus at Compass Lake in the Hills. When the Board of Directors voted to create the course, they committed to doing it right. The natural setting was a perfect start. In studying the existing marketplace we learned that most courses are flat with little variation in the topography. Not so at “The Bear.” You start under a pine canopy and then go deeply into the woods. When emerging from the woods you then walk the ridge along the lake shore and return to another wooded section of challenging holes. The last hole is exceptionally long and allows the opportunity to “air it out.”
Most disc courses have a few cement tee boxes, some offer seating and few distinguishability between amateur and professional distances. “The Bear” offers it all. With all cement tee’s, attractive signage, seating at every hole, and a beautiful course.
