About These Courses


All other pages that had the Clemson campus disc golf courses on them have disappeared over time, so I created this to preserve them for future students. If you have any questions/comments/etc. shoot me an email at mrtromb@g.clemson.edu. Enjoy!

Side note: I help run a daily sports newsletter called Sideline Sprint. If you're interested, check it out!

If you can only play one of the courses, make it this one. This is the "official" unofficial disc golf course for campus. There are no set pars for the holes, so either make up ones you think are accurate or play for best score amongst your group.

Some of the holes on this course can go across very muddy/dirty areas. Best to wear boots or expect to get muddy on a trip through this one. Unofficial hole names are listed in parenthesis before the hole description. There are no set pars for the holes, so either make up ones you think are accurate or play for best score amongst your group.

  1. (Warm Up Hucks) Park at the main parking area just off Perimeter Road. Tee from the old white sign at the back corner of the parking lot. The goal is the white pole on left hand side of the meadow pond.
  2. (Picnic Spot) Tee from the last goal towards the big oak tree at the crest of the hill (#7 on SCBG map). The goal is the bench underneath the tree.
  3. (Meadow of Despair) - Tee from the last goal towards the big oak tree at the crest of the next hill (#6 on SCBG map). The goal is the bench underneath tree.
  4. (Across the Creek) Tee from the last goal towards the picnic area to the south. The goal is a wooden structure across the creek with openings on two sides (only visible after you walk beyond the trees and bushes surrounding the tee location). Your disc must pass through both openings to complete the hole.
  5. (The Long and Winding Road) The tee is a marker for the Schoenike Arboretum located about 25 yards east from the last goal. The goal is a sign up the road to the northeast.
  6. (Lone Trunk) Tee from the last goal. The goal is a tree trunk visible to the east.

To the best of my knowledge, ClemsonTalk used to be a forum to discuss all things Clemson and living in the Clemson area. Don't think it exists anymore, but this course seems to have come from there.
