Pros: As a relatively new disc golfer, playing at Jenny Wiley was a real treat. Being able to let loose on drives on the first few holes. The wooded holes were also very pretty, and pretty difficult as well. The setting is beautiful in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. The course also offers recreational tees and pro tees on every hole. So far, this is my favorite course I have ever played.
Cons: This is not the best course to take someone learning. There are a few holes for beginners, but even the recreational tees on some will be frustrating. There is one hole on the front nine, that may be difficult for some to ascend the hill.
Other Thoughts: I have actually played this course when it was a nine hole golf course, so it has some sentimental value as well. The cart path is nice on some of the holes. I went with friends and we made a weekend of camping and playing frisbee golf. We played the recreational in the morning, ate lunch, then played the pro tees. The course is fairly spread out, so there is some endurance required.

Disc Golfing in the Mountains!
Pros: If you like the outdoors as much as disc golf, you'll love this course. It's not uncommon to see a dozen turkey in the fairway or a few deer on the green. The scenic park has a good mixture of wooded shots and open shots. It's well cared for, clean, has great Tee's (both Recreational and Championship Level), trash cans. It really doesn't lack much.
Cons: About the only cons would be that the 'All You Can Eat' Buffet at the lodge has too good of food. Play first, then eat!

BG turns to DG
Pros: Beautiful course laid out on an old Par 3 ball golf course. Most days you will see deer on the course. Hole 18 is a very memorable hole. Offers long shots, short shots, a few technical wooded shots.
Cons: Wooded holes are fairly new...thus primitive and may need a year or two of playing time to open up. Most holes are just hyzers. Can get boring if you don't like hyzer shots. Not really a con..but many of the greens are on hard sloping hillsides. If you can't annie your putts to minimize 'tournament rolls' you will get rather frustrated.
Other Thoughts: Course is inside a great park that offers a buffet. If you wanna stuff yourself full between rounds with a 2min walk to food...this is the place. The course is absolutely beautiful on a summer day. If you skip the three shots in the woods you can play the entire course barefooted.
