A random collection of rants, reviews, and miscellaneous thoughts on everything from instructional technology to local restaurants.
I realized that in yesterday’s post I didn’t get any maps or locations to the two disc golf courses I’d played.Â The easiest thing would be to see if the Upstate Disc Golf Club website had links to maps on their course list, but there were not even any written directions.
I thought I had remembered someone putting together a KML file on the Google Earth Community bulletin board system, but their search functions are miserable and I couldn’t locate it.Â A google search led me to one resource on the Disc Golf Fusion website, but it wasn’t accurate at all.Â All it did was map to the zip codes, which would only get you to the right city.Â Waymarking.com has a category for disc golf courses, but it’s by no means comprehensive.
So, I visited the Professional Disc Golf Association website and searched their listings for courses in our area.Â In some cases there were links to Google Maps or MapQuest, but not for all courses.Â I wound up just following the direction descriptions and creating my own Google Maps collection.Â I also copied the info for the courses from the PDGA site and pasted it into the placemark information.Â These are the courses that are closest to Greenville.Â There are more in South Carolina, but I didn’t include them.Â I have only played five of these courses, but one day I’d love to visit them all.
