Any recommendations on courses in or near Knoxville, TN. I will in Maryville, just South of Knoxville, quite a bit in the upcoming months. The PDGA direcotory list Admiral Farragut (9 holes), Morningside, and Victor Ashe as being nearby courses. Will likely play them all but would like some feedback from anyone who has played in the area before. Thanks.
From the last time I played K-town (2yrs ago) Farragut had two tees per hole the longer were valid not so the shorts. 2.5 out of 5 Morningside is in the hood but I never had any problems Lots of elevation changes and the Tenn. river was possible OB. Had only 12 baskets, rest poles.3.5 Never played Victor Ashe. There was an active local scene (2yrs ago) and a store in the nightlife area (think L5P more than Buckhead) that sold discs.
I played a tourney at Victor Ashe and really liked the course. It is a mix of holes and I think one was like 1000ft or so. I haven't played the other courses. You could hit the Sinks in Chattanooga on your way home as some side action if you have the time.

Yes this park is a nice course, has a few signature holes, and the pics don't do hole 9 justice. Unfortunately it is about 20 mins south of NASHVILLE, not KNOXVILLE, but if you are driving through Nashville on the way to BG or just going that way, make it a point to stop there. Seven Oaks is nice too and not far off of I-24 pretty close to Nashville.

IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW FAR IT MIGHT GO PAST THE BASKET, IF IT GOES IN.
Thanks for the feedback on Knoxville courses. I'll give a trip report once I have played them all. I will have to see if I can dig up a disc for Vern while there....likely a Wham-O 90g with sparkles....
Lived in Ktown for 4 years. Don't waste your time or gas going to Farragut to play 9 easy holes at Admiral.. Venture to Victor Ashe (one of the best parks I have ever played, and lots of room for expansion). You must also visit Morningside for a great hilly and technical challenge; aside from being in what some would term as "not the greatest area" it is an amazing park that is decently maintained.. If you have time to head further east, you should check out Kiwanis in Morristown and try to stop at Carson Newman College for a 9-hole course that winds you thru the actual campus, it is quite fun to throw thru buildings while the locals look at you funny (they have actual baskets but by the looks of the people - and the looks they give you - no one that goes there actually plays)
And I think everyone knows that North Carolina disc golf is..... the bees knees.
