Winthrop University Gold Course
Winthrop University’s Disc Golf Course has been the site of the US Championship since its inception in 1999. Although the course has seen minor changes each year, it always presents a combination of narrow fairways, lots of out-of-bounds area, elevated baskets and plenty of water. Known to be physically, emotionally and mentally challenging, the Winthrop course allows for creativity in shot making and a unique focus on shot placement, rather than on pure distance alone.
The best way to get acquainted with the Winthrop University’s Gold Course is to browse through the USDGC caddy book. The 2017 USDGC caddy book is available for downloading as a pdf.
