Pros: Very challenging if your looking to see how good your game has got, also if your looking for exercise play this course.
Cons: This course is a disc eating maching. If you wana loose some discs play this course. The terrain is super hilly and one hell of a workout to get through, After playing the whole course and looking for discs that fell into the rivers and such it took us 3 hours to play, Pretty nuts

Pros: The course is set on very unique terrain, with ravines and streams running through the course. There are great views from many of the tees, especially on the 13th hole. The design makes great use of the terrain, shooting along and over the ravines, and using the scattered trees well to protect the pins.

The baskets were all in great shape, and the tee pads were large and concrete. There is a great variety of shots required here, and the holes offer many unique challenges. There is a nice mix of shorter and longer holes, and some holes that do a good job testing accuracy.
Cons: The navigation on this course is extremely difficult. There are no tee signs, and no way of knowing where the next tee is, or where to shoot when the basket is not easily visible. I would not recommend this course without a guide or map (or both!), it took us more than twice as long as it should have to play the round due to time spent wandering around and searching.

This course is not beginner friendly, as it is easy to lose a disc in the vegetation along the bottom of the creeks and ravines. This is not a major con for more experienced players, but does present an added hazard.
Other Thoughts: If this course were well marked and easy to navigate, it would be a great and unique place to play. As it is, the course gets very frustrating to a player who is not familiar with the course and doesn't know their way around. If you can find a local to play a round with, this course is worth a trip, otherwise I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to play it.

This course will be more rewarding for more experienced players with a variety of shots to draw on. The risk of losing discs with inaccurate shots, along with the challenges presented on many holes will make this a difficult place for beginners to have fun.
