I would just like to let everyone know that I am an international disc golf player now.
My wife and I recently went to Prince Edward Island (PEI) for vacation with my parents. So naturally I checked the PDGA course directory to see if there were any disc golf courses that we could play and was pleasantly surprised to find one on the south-west side of the island near Strathgartney.
It was a bit of a struggle to find it based on the directions given but we persevered. If you are ever in the neighborhood look for the sign that says “Strathgartney Campgrounds” it’ll be on your left if you are driving west on Hwy 1.
I cost us $1.00 Canadian per person to play the 18 hole course.
The course doesn’t have the traditional baskets that we have become accustomed to, instead it used wooden posts (4 by 4’s) painted green with a bar threaded into the top and another 4 by 4 (about 1.5 to 2 feet tall) painted white threaded on top. The white 4 by 4 was the “basket”.
The signs were all well marked and helpful except sign #10 which was missing. Many of the shots used doglegs to the left or were straight. It had a good variety of uphill and downhill, long and short shots and was moderately challenging.
The signs were marked in meters instead of feet so that took some getting used to as well.
I shot a 55 which by their course par was 17 under and by par 3 standards was 1 over. I was declared the champion of the group by 8 strokes and that is how I became an international disc golf champion!
