Review By: Geek13
Played: 25  Reviewed: 2  Exp: 10.3 Years
Pros: -Close to parking.
-Sells discs
-Plenty of shade
-Short holes for weaker arms/newer players
-Trees cut down wind
Cons: -Some tees are hard to find as the markers have been broken and kicked around.
-Markers are small and can be obscured by leaf litter
-Short holes for experienced players
-9 holes only
Other Thoughts: This course is very much like the course I learned to play on, Wall Doxey SP. Lots of trees and hills. The risk it seems is just throwing a disc because of all the trees but reward comes into play for a well aimed throw. There are no wide open shots here. I will say there does seem to be a lack of "options" when picking a path to throw but that didn't diminish the fun for me. Good course to play 2 rounds of 9. Nice to stop by before or after Archusa Water Park course. It isn't a pro course but it does alright for a 9 hole course that isn't the main attraction of the park. Lots of trees and shade so bring your bug spray.

Pros: -The course is laid out well enough that you shouldn't have any major navigation issues (A.K.A. - flows well)
-Elevation comes into play on every hole
-Very tight and technical, which helps make up for the short holes.
-All 9 holes are in the woods = shade & little to no wind
-The DISCatcher baskets are old but in good shape
-Parking next to Hole #1
-Restrooms in the lodge
Cons: -No Trashcans
-No Benches
-Natural Tees
-Several tee signs are broken (they are all there though
-Little risk/reward, none of the holes have alternate throwing lanes.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun little course, where the real challenge is threading your disc through the abundant trees on every hole. There may be some confusion on where the tee is on #3 but otherwise all of the holes were easy enough to locate. The baskets are old but in decent condition.
I wouldn't recommend making a trip for this course alone, but if you're playing Highland Park in Meridian it may be worth the trip (30 mins.). If you're playing Archusa Water Park, I would highly recommend stopping by.

Pros: Not crowded at all
Not too hot since it is completely in the woods
Cons: Grass tees
very poorly marked, had to look for some holes
Cant see most baskets from tee
Way too many trees
Other Thoughts: This is probably the worst course I have ever played on. It is really just some trails in the woods. The only way I would play this course is if you were already there for some reason and needed something to do. Definitely not worth $3 dollars

Pros: Nice terrain with many hills. Just about every hole can be birdied, but bogey or worse is also in play. Classic risk/reward. Park office has cheap discs for sale but limited variety. Never crowded.Restrooms and snack bar on site. Other things to do like water area for kids, fishing etc. good for a family trip.
Cons: Not well maintained. There were 2 holes where trees had fallen and not been removed. Only 9 holes which could be a con for some.
Other Thoughts: Very short,but with narrow fairways and thick trees and brush. Need precision throws to score well. Long throwers may be frustrated here. Not that good for beginners even though the holes are short because it is easy to get into heavy undergrowth. You really wouldn't want to clear it out because the course would be defenseless.
