Pros: There are some good points to this course, I would definitely consider this a beginners course though. With that being said - it is fun going for Aces on most of the holes.

I appreciate the concrete tees - they are short though, basically two sidewalk squares long. Easy to compensate by starting behind the tees though. Holes with multiple tees have all tees paved.

There are 4 holes with multiple tee placements for Pro/Adv/Beginners which cuts down the length of the course for beginners. Using the pro tees - the longest hole is 600 feet with a couple 400ft holes in there. Using the Beginners tees - drops the 'big' hole down to less than 300ft and makes the longest hole on the course 355ft. The short tees on a couple holes just change the distance like on 8 - on other holes it changes the need to throw a specific line into a straight shot.

There are plenty of Ace opportunities - for everyone - with 14 of the 18 holes at less than 280ft all that's really needed is some successful lines through the trees.

This course has obvious lines to play on each hole, if you can hit them, you're going to be in golden.

Navigation on the course is dead simple - there is a map that you can get at the Pro Shop when you enter that has the course layout, but on holes where the next basket is not next to the previous tee there are painted concrete signs in the ground giving directions to the next tee. Obviously these are probably useless in the winter, but a nice addition.

The course looks like it is open year round since there are alternate winter placements for holes 9 and 10 which normally reside on a tubing hill.

The rough on this course is non-existent on a couple holes, sparse on others and thick, but still manageable on the rest. Nothing where throwing a bad shot will leave you looking for a disc for hours - you might have a hard time getting it down from a pine tree on 8, but you'll most likely see it up in the tree taunting you.


Cons: There are two issues I have with this course and park. The cost to play this park is $4 for out of county residents to enter the park and an additional $4.00 to play disc golf. For $8.00 - I'd pick either Rum Village or George Wilson ($2) over this course to play if I was passing through this area. Locally, it's probably worth the $50 pass for parking and golf combined. Otherwise, the $4.00 to play DG was fine, but on top of parking, that pushed it past the 'reasonable' stage.

It's short - no getting around that.

Hole 6 basket and hole 7 tee are really close together. An errant throw on 6 to the basket and you definitely could hit someone teeing off on 7.
Other Thoughts: Not a pro or a con, but hole 8 - the 600 foot straight shot through the pine trees is a dangerous shot because the pine trees are old and thick. They eat discs if you accidentally throw into them and getting a disc stuck 16' up a pine tree isn't fun to try to get down. It'd be nice if the park provided poles for disc retrieval on that hole.

Seeing the winter placements for holes 9 and 10 sounds intriguing - if it didn't cost $8 to play here in the winter, it would be a fun and short course to spend some time on come snow season.

I would probably rate this course a 3 (Good) rather than 2.5 (Typical) if it didn't cost as much and there was a little more distance on the holes.

There are trashcans at most of the holes and the course is well maintained. It's obvious that they put the money that they collect back into the course and they did what they could with the land, but there are better options out there.

Park closes at 8, or so the man at the gate told us.

Pros: This course is mostly flat and wooded and short with the exception of a couple open/tight long holes.There is a hole where u get to let it fly off a big sledding hill. Great course to work on your mid range game and find multiple lines on almost every hole. Some holes feel kinda like poke-and-hope type holes but thats just until u find your line. Every hole has concrete teepads and a nice simple sign. Alot of ace runs to be had on this course. Trash cans throughout course and its kept pretty clean. This is a multi use park with swimming,fishing,picnicing,and playgrounds.

There are 2 epic holes that you will remember after you leave.
8--- its a 600ft tough hole. First shot must land as close to center as possible between rows of pines that give u about a 50ft wide fairway 300ft long ,then the fairway gets cut in half for your second shot,which is a 25ft wide fairway 300ft tunnel shot to the basket. This is a very hard 3 and a 4 is a solid score for most everyone. Love it!

11-- is a long dogleg left but u have a 20ft gap u have to hit off the tee and have a carry of about 250ft to have a second shot at the basket. Ur second shot is almost a 90 degree hyzer (rhbh) to get to the bucket. A great hole where a 3 is a great score for most. Love it!

They also have a small selection of discs available for sale.
Cons: Some holes are very short and pretty lame. Holes 2,5,12,14. These holes are a sure birdie for even a beginner and really hurt the course.
The teepads are really small which feels kinda awkward but doesnt really hinder your shot.
Tee signs are not very informative.
Pay to play is outrageous at $4 dollars to play every day and add $3 for parking on the weekends.
Other Thoughts: This is a pretty fun course to play ,but dont go outta your way to play it. If your in the area its worth it. Its a quick round with some fun holes,but nothing special. Bring your fishing poles and ur discs and make a day of it.

Parking for disc golf course and hole 1 is your first parking lot on the right, after u pay.
