Pros: The first Pro is that a church opened up its property and allows everyone to play here. Very Nice, thanks.
It may be on the short side but, the church did well with what area they had.
Of course #5 is scenic and worth the stop if you are driving by on I-95.
Great course to introduce children or a friend to the sport of Disc Golf.
Cons: Not a lot of variety on throwing but, it looks like major changes to the course are not feasible either.
Other Thoughts: Thanks again to the church for providing a course. Leave the bag in the car and grab your midrange for a nice break from interstate driving. I'm sure I'll stop again!

Pros: Great for kids to start on. Nice and quiet. Really cool hole over the lake. Good midrange practice.
Cons: Baskets are flimsy with only one set of chains hanging. Short course with only 9 holes. Hard to find 1st hole ( in the alcove behind the church). Easy to find the rest of the holes though. Have to throw around someones house, backyard for three holes.
Other Thoughts: It awesome that the church funded this course and its great for kids to get a start into the sport. Dont go out of your way to play but it was a good stop to break up the drive on I-95. There was a hawk sitting on 9's basket so I had to wait to putt.. it was cool though... wish I had my camera. All you will need is your midrange and putter for this course.

 Short beginner's course

Pros: It's a good place to introduce youth and new players to the sport. There's some nice Florida plant life, and a small scenic pond comes into play on hole 5. It's easy to navigate once you find the first tee.
Cons: You have to look around a little bit to find the first tee.
The course is short and flat and it plays around church buildings, so this detracts from the natural scenery.
There's little fairway variety with 8 holes that are straight and 1 dogleg left. The terrain is also too open (although this helps new players).
The signs could be improved; they are only small posts with laminated course maps, and there are no hole lengths available. The tees are quite short, but you can make due. The baskets are adequate, with a few Mach III baskets and some other mixed varieties (but keep in mind that this was funded by the church).
Other Thoughts: Since the course is at a church it's privately funded, so I applaud them for introducing people to the sport. (It doesn't hurt to get exposure for the church too.) The course is short and fairly open, so it's a good place to introduce youth and new players to the sport. It will just be a quick round for more experienced players, though. It's a nice place to throw some discs if you're in the area already, but I wouldn't suggest going out of your way to play there.

My favorite hole- 5. Your drive is over a small scenic pond with nice plant life all around.
