Paul McBeth has teased his private course in Virginia as recently as a week ago, and while we have seen bits and pieces on social media, Foundation Disc Golf just gave us our biggest preview yet.
Foundation’s Zach and Hunter jump around the property with Nick Carl on a three disc challenge and play nine holes out of order.
The 18-under Discraft baskets from the 2018 Great Lakes Open aren’t in the ground yet, and the El Guapo basket they are playing on looks like is just carted around and put down as they play. Quotes below are from the Foundation video.
Hole 1: “Slightly downhill about 600 feet. Tails off a little bit to the right. OB on the property line [on the right].”
Hole 2: We think this is hole 2, they don’t say in the video. Looks like a pretty standard 250+ foot shot through the woods to an elevated basket.
Hole 7: The trio is playing this as hole 3 in their challenge. Fairway looks like it goes uphill and then to the right. “We’re playing from the long tee. There are two trees in the middle of the fairway that are being cut out but haven’t been yet. It’ll be a nice gap when it’s done.”
Hole 8: The fourth hole we see. Finishes on an Iron Hill-esque rocky green. “This is a par 5. It’s going to go down, across the creek, and then up to the right.”
Hole ?: “Shooting uphill on a tight gap. When we get up there there’s going to be two fairways you can play through and it’s going to go up an the the right. It’s pretty tight off the tee.”
Hole ?: “Par 4, up the hill.”
Hole 15: The seventh we see in the challenge. “Pretty much dead straight downhill with OB creek.”
Hole 16: A par 4. “You’re going to go through this tight gap [off the tee] and it’s going to go all the way to the right.”
Hole 17: “It’s going to be a par 4 right down the chute and it’s going to tail off a little bit to the left.”
