A Diamond in the Rough
Pros: This course has a beautiful setting. I rate this an excellent course because it has alot of character. There are no boring holes, and I feel each hole has its own unique way of making you use various skills. The front 7 being mostly open and then going into the woods gives it an awesome arrangement. I love the downhill tee-offs this course offers. I'm not the best at throwing uphill for sure, but there are a couple of those, too.
Cons: There are alot of large thornbushes. It's not necessarily the course's fault. I guess I should take the blame for throwing discs into them. :)
Other Thoughts: I'm looking forward to playing competitively on this course.

Fun and Challenging
Pros: Well marked course with open field holes to start and then more challenging ones to finish. The holes are fun to play and easy to follow. The woods section is challenging with some narrow fairways and many elevation changes. The first 6-7 holes play around some fields and are good warm-ups. The rest of the course is in the woods.
Cons: Tee boxes need work. They are composed of small, hard packed gravel and several were washing away. If the ground is wet the woods section would be pretty muddy. We played under dry conditions and it was fine. Tee signs also need work.
Other Thoughts: This was a fun and challenging course to play and worth the $5 fee and drive from Indy. The farm has many other activities as well and would be a great place for a family day out.

Pros: The course has a nice mix of Open then wooded holes. The "Front 9" are the Open and ends kinda close to the parking lot. Nice layout for beginners,from the other activities in the park,giving DG a try. A few holes are a challenge for beginners,keeping them interested and showing the possibilities of hole design. The "Back 9" has a nice mix of technical and "wooded open" short (called sticks) and long (called stones,on scorecard). Mach V targets, with number plates. Footbridges are well built,solid. Natural Directional,Tee signs & post's. (See pics,I'll post a.s.a.p.) With Tee signs having Sponsor info. & hole layout, showing both tees. (That helps on the back 9) Crushed stone Tee pads,done well. Front 9 fairways are well maintained,cut & trash free. Scorecards available with maps on the back. Practice basket about 50ft from #1.
Cons: Some Tee signs need work, atleast the ones facing south. A few Tees also need work,rain run off. Atleast the ones on the sides of hills. The fairways on the back 9 needed to be cut. Carefull going down the hill on #12? very small sticks & stones made me slip.Need to have a spotter on a few holes or play it safe. I lost a disc "going for it" on #15. if you find it my name & number is on it.....But just give it to a newbie. A few, 3/4, pop/water bottles found. But it's not like someone is dumping their trash,as I've seen before,but not at this course.
Other Thoughts: About 30 minutes from I-465/I-65,From Indy's Eastside. They use the "Honor System" for Entry Fees & Drinks. If you feel $8 all day is to costly,pay $5. It has been a few years since I last played here and I could tell the Entry Fees are going back into the course.

Pros: Boondocks Farm has created an excellent 18 hole course for South Central Indiana by making great use of the natural woods and drastic elevation changes. Many of the holes have substanial elevation declines with somewhat narrow paths that make for some really amazing downward shots on hole.
- Nice mixture of shots
- Alternate Tee shots
-Well Marked Course
-Signs with hole placement
Great hike through some nice woods after a few wide open holes at the beginning to get you warmed up. Pay the "honor" $5 bucks b/c its well worth it.
Cons: The course has the holes marked with designated par's, but these seemed pretty giving. Usually I play all holes par 3 to avoid confusion, but this course makes it difficult for some holes to get there in 3, but are managebale on a good toss. I scored -12 by course par, but 2+ by all 3's. I'd like to know how the locals play it.
-Watch where disc goes when get in the woods b/c there are some blind holes and deep drops in elevation
- Thick briars prevelant
- Gravel tees, but in good condition
Other Thoughts: A must play course if you are in this area or Indianapolis (just about 30 min max from I465/ I70). It is right off I70 and easy to find. We need more courses like Boondocks to continue to increase popularity of disc in the region. I will be back to play there again very soon.

A round with no headaches
Pros: A well marked course that flows together perfectly. There are signs for every pro tee, marking pars along with a hole map. To reduce confusion between holes, Boondocks farm has constructed wooden signs pointing you in the direction to the next tee.This course mixes distance with shorter more technical wooded shots.The front seven holes are more open field drives, with a couple of spider-web type trees jutting out from the tree line. There is enough distance on a couple of the front seven baskets to really be able to open up and rip it. Hole eight welcomes you to the woods with ferocity. The next 10 baskets make this course worth the drive. (right around an hour from myself) There is a mixture of shots which forces you to get creative. There are hooks right, left, great elevation changes and just diversity in general. Really a hell of a lot of fun. Pro shop next to Tee 1 with cold beverages and some discs fro sale if you shank one too far into the woods.
Cons: Some of the back 11 holes are a little short, but the trees make up for it in difficulty. Not many problems, course designer made great use of the land available to him. Front 7 could use some more diversity. Wish the tees were concrete, but you get used to the gravel.
Other Thoughts: While getting ready to play our second round of the day, happened to notice multiple Superbowl winner Adam Vinatieri just chewing the fat with the shop keep. Apparently he had just finished shooting in an archery contest that Boondocks Farm was hosting earlier that morning. Pretty cool as I am a huge Colts fan.

Why Pay So Much?
Pros: You get the fields and then the woods. You get to rip it and then go tech. I love this type of course.
Cons: 8 bucks! Are you joking? This will run off most D golfers. LOWER the costs, please. Or make it free!
Around Halloween there are ghosts and caskets and sheets and crap. It really screws up the disc golf and you would be a fool to pay around then to play.
Other Thoughts: Could be awesome if 2 bucks to play.

Pros: Good distance shots, decent elevation changes, First 7 holes are pretty open, the rest are heavily wooded, challenging course, variety of different shots (Doglegs, tunnel shots, etc.). Pro and Am Tee Pads on most holes. Open putting tee for practice. Course navigates fairly easily and each hole brings something new.
Cons: *Suggested* Pay course, easy to lose discs in wooded area without spotters, some really thick bushes in wooded area. Almost too many trees on some shots, but most holes have a line to take.
Other Thoughts: I enjoyed this course, it is a trip from Indianapolis, but well worth it. Lots of variety, which forces you to use different shots. Might want to wear some thin pants in the woods, thorn bushes and such.
