Eastern Illinois University has added a disc golf course, and I had the chance to try it out yesterday.
Overall, it's a very fun course for a beginner. Most of the holes are short, and there are not a lot of tree obstacles or water hazards. I say most of the holes are short, but Hole 8 is 735 feet, par 5. If you want to test your arm strength, there you go.
Surprisingly, no one was playing the course. Granted, it was sprinkling a bit, but the temps were in the 70s (and this is July in Illinois). If you're in the Charleston area, go out and play the course.
People in the area should also note that Lake Land College in Mattoon has just added a course as well. I haven't had a chance to play it, but it's good to see interest in disc golf developing in the central Illinois area.
