Pros: The front 14 holes are very fun. Many open shots and a couple of wooded shots with not-too-tight fairways. One hole is over 500 ft, which is longer than almost any hole at any of the four courses in Rocky Mount. There is a creek that comes into play on a few holes, so that adds an edge to the course (though it would be extremely difficult to lose a disc in the creek). There is a fair variety between left and right turning shots. For a course in such a flat area, there is some decent elevation change on holes 9 & 11 (but this is still nothing compared to what is usually considered moderate elevation changes).
Cons: First of all, this course is in desperate need of bridges over the creek. There are signs that say that an Eagle Scout's project was to build bridges, but the bridges that were built were built over dry ditches instead of the creek. Also, if you throw into the woods on holes 15 or 16, you might as well say good bye to your disc. Extremely thick woods lines these fairways. I have seen a water moccasin in the creek by the 15th pin, so be careful.
Other Thoughts: This course has grown on me. The more I play disc golf, the more I appreciate the challenge of this course. It is, in my opinion, the most challenging in Rocky Mount.

Pros: Multiple tee pads.
Great place for a disc golf course.
Lots of different routes to take on most holes.
Cons: Trash cans would be nice.
Other Thoughts: Allot of the course is on land that used to be houses. The houses were flooded out during Hurricane Floyd 99'. Lots of beautiful landscape if multiple pins were to be added.

Pros: This is a challenging course with a few long technical shots. The longer holes could have the pins marked better. They could also use a bridge on the back nine.
Cons: Holes 17 and 18 need to have the growth thinned out on either side of the fairway. There is nothing wrong with a tight fairway but it would be nice to be half way playable if you are off by more than a foot.
Other Thoughts: The best course in R.M. if you want a challenge. Two rounds on this course will wear you out.

Pros: The course starts and finishes in a small park with a baseball field and a playground. the first 3 holes are short and technical through the woods, holes 5 through 14 play through an old neighbor hood that was flooded out in '99 by Hurricane Floyd.

drainage ditch come into play on 5-7 and 15-16 and adds a nice challenge to the course.
Cons: hole 4 needs a good deal of work, the bridge on 6 keeps getting wiped out, why isn't the peninsula by 10 used?
Other Thoughts: this was the second course installed in RM, there are now 4 in RM, and this is still the best

Pros: Long course that challenges your ability to throw distances. There are a few holes that require finesse.
Cons: Not good for newbies. A lot of places to loose your disc if you're not accurate.
Other Thoughts: If it's hot, bring water. Look out for snakes too. They have been spotted on several occasions, mostly along the creek on holes 5-9.

Pros: Very difficult course. Makes you bring out all the shots. Good mix of wooded and open holes.
Cons: Nothing too bad. Maybe clear hole 3 and 4 out a little more.
Other Thoughts: One of the tougher courses in Rocky Mount. Very fun to play!

Pros: Good mix of wooded and open holes, no one hole is completely open.Shooting small gaps more than once since holes 2-4 are heavily wooded. With trees on every hole it is challenging, and may be the most challenging course in Rocky Mount. A local Boy Scout troupe is adding benches and some bridges. I could tell that they are not finished , and am not sure if a bridge or 2 will be added for holes 6,7.
Cons: There is heavy growth along sides of holes that play down the utilities right of way areas. On holes 6,7 there is a large ditct that has to be crossed; with a soft sand bottom. If the water is up you will have to go from 5 to 8 skipping 6,7.
Other Thoughts: It is well worth playing and id getting more attention than in the past. Holes 5-14 is on land that was turned into Park land after Huricane Floyd flooded the ares in 1999.

Pros: The mix of open holes and wooded holes was very well done, probably 6-8 heavily wooded and 10 or so somewhat open, nothing wide open, trees on every hole that add challenge...and the tee signs proved very helpful to find the next tee as we had never been there before.
Cons: It's relatively overgrown. The fairways are mowed, but that's about it, there's heavy brush off the fairway on most every wooded hole and a few of the not so wooded holes have some dense woods as a backstop of sorts, my wife actually lost her favorite disc in the swamp that is the backdrop for hole 6.

Also, some bridges would be nice over the creek that runs through holes 5-7...if the water is higher I can't see getting across the thing dry.
Other Thoughts: If the course was given a good clean-up maybe a weekend of work days, this would be a great course that I would come back to.
