3820 Johnson Street, High Point, North Carolina 27260
This is the course where The Oak Hollow Disc Golf Club got started. It’s a full 18 holes with three different layouts: White Tees, Blue Tees, and Gold Tees and all three have concrete pads. The course offers both wooded shots and rolling fairways with varying elevation. With the three different layouts, you can easily play all day on a large variety of holes without having to drive to another course.
The White Tees: are par 54 and offer the beginner golfer a chance to work on control and accuracy with short to moderate distance and a variety of shots off the tee. They also provide a chance for the more seasoned golfer to work on their touch game and can usually be played in under an hour.
The Blue Tees: will test even the experienced golfer with longer distances to the pin and tougher angles resulting in more obstacles in the way of your tee shot. The blue layout is officially still a par 54 but shooting close to or under that can prove challenging, even for the more advanced golfer.
The Gold Tees: or “Ludicrous/Lude” tees are exactly what they sound like. While officially scored as a par 57, this layout is not for the inexperienced or the easily frustrated. Some of the gold pads are in spots such that finding them can be tough for a first timer and once you do find them can often inspire a “Seriously?” or an “Oh, #$%* no.” Still though, you haven’t truly experienced all that this awesome course has to offer until you have subjected yourself to a round from the “Ludes”. Just make sure you don’t have to be anywhere anytime soon when you decide to take them on for the first time.

This course is a great pairing with Johnson St. and offers slightly longer holes with larger elevation changes. It is also a full 18 hole, par 54 course with (for now) natural tee pads. Although it does not have the alternate layouts that Johnson St. offers, it has a wide variety of looks that will test every shot in your bag in a single round. Barber (or ‘Bar-bear’ on a windy day) will make you work your long, open game; your tight, wooded game; and your short, tactical game all in one round of golf.
Pro tip: The course can be difficult to travel your first time playing, so grab a map at the start of the round from the black mailbox on the bulletin board at hole 1’s tee and pay attention to the pavers (small concrete bricks) with arrows on them throughout the course!
