The course has a beautiful forest with slight elevation changes and lots of trees. Water really comes into play on 1 hole. The holes aren’t too long but are very wooded and technical, forcing accuracy.
The Scrapyard is named after the fundraising efforts of the Charlotte Disc Golf Club President Ralph Vickers. Funds for this course were raised from donations of scrap metal. Recycling cans, lawn mowers, scrap metal, etc. to make the course a reality.
Directions: Located on the East side of Charlotte and is easily gotten to by 485. Take 485 to Idlewild Road, West on Idlewild for about 5 miles. Park is on the Left. Drive up and around to the ball fields. Hole 1 is to the left of that parking lot halfway to the playground and plays around the back of the far left ball field
