Championship Course


AS OF JAN 22, 2017:

This was the original description in 2013:

The Championship Course is intended for only highly skilled disc golfers and is meant to challenge the best of the best.  The par 70 layout brings two ponds, two marshes and a creek bed into play on eight holes.  Property lines serve as OB on seven holes.  Elevation changes of up to 60 feet and large trees await you on almost every hole.

This course is designed so that the hills, the trees and the wind are factors on almost every shot.  The Championship Course has three different tee boxes - White 9,010', Blue 9,793', and Gold measuring out to 10,449' - so that anyone who wishes to play can play.  It is true the long arms will have an advantage on the course, but pin-point accuracy is a must to score well.  For you Ace junkies, YES, there are Ace Runs scattered here and there, but if you are the disc golfer that just wants to make a bunch of 2s while wearing flip-flops, this is not meant for you.

The Championship Course is a true test of both physical and mental stamina.


(JAN 22, 2017)  THE CHAMPIONSHIP COURSE AT DISC SIDE OF HEAVEN IS UNDERGOING SOME CHANGES TO PREPARE FOR THE DISC GOLF PRO TOUR JONESBORO OPEN.

After much time, effort and debate a decision was made to change several holes on the Championship Course to better prepare for the Jonesboro Open.  When the changes are complete, a new scorecard will be added here and DGCourseReview with the new lengths.


We can tell you that the following holes are being changed dramatically (and each change is for various reasons.)

#1:  Shortened to a long Par 3, reasons are cosmetic only, it is going to be a great starting hole.
#5:  Shortened to a long Par 3, reasons are also cosmetic, may become the best hole on the course.
#9:  Shortened to a Par 4, Tee and Basket location both moving to the left Fairway.  Safety reasons with the new #1.
#14: Shortened to a Par 3, "Top of the World" type shot.  This hole's green suffered major storm damage two years ago and has never been the same.  Hoping to make lemonade out of lemons.
#18: (Side note, this one hurts the most)   The 999' Hole.   We are clearing a lot of the fairway and moving the Tee up considerably.  This will be a Par 4 and what promises to be a fantastic finishing hole.

Other minor changes are #2 will be listed as a Par 4 instead of 5, and the Tee Box will move slightly from the original Gold location.  #4 Tee Box will also move slightly due to the same storm that took out #14 took out a tree that defined the fairway.  #4 will remain a Par 4.  #8 Tee Box will move slightly, but the shot will not change.  #11 Tee Box will move slightly but again will not affect the shot.  Finally, #17 Tee will also move slightly to shorten the hole, still will remain a difficult, long Par 4.

Summary, major changes to 1, 5, 9, 14 & 18.
Minor changes to 2, 4, 8, 11 & 17.
No changes to 3, 6, 7, 10, 12, 13, 15, & 16.

Overall when the changes are made the Championship Course will be cut down to a short, pedestrian (appx) 9,800 foot course with a new course par of 64.  Good Luck!
