Pros: The layout is pretty good and flows alright until hole fifteen. Then the course starts to really turn around on itself. It does that on a few earlier holes but it isn't as bad. There are several different types of baskets scattered throughout the course in various stages of decomposition. There are orange cones on top of the baskets which makes it easier to spot the baskets. Some have numbers sharpied on them, this also helps as there are no tee signs and you can see several baskets from some tees. There are a few holes with multiple tee pads/basket locations so this adds a little bit of a variety to the course; which after the first few holes is much needed. There are some porta potties near the first hole that are pretty clean. It is a very technical course that requires quite a lot of thought before each shot. It was a fun experience but there are other courses nearby that I would play again before I come back.
Cons: The tee signs could be a positive if they were all the same. There is a few that have a laminated color print out and are very helpful, others have the hole distance and number written on them, and still others are demolished pieces of wood scattered by the tee. One of the tee signs was a paper plate with a number on it! The first tee is hard to find, make sure you bring the print out and go behind the pool. The basket condition is pretty poor. They look like they have been there since 1977. The tee pads are even worse than the signage. There are roots, rocks and other debris sticking up and they are quite uneven. There is also no reason to the size of them dependent upon the hole. The shorter holes seem to have the longer and wider tee boxes. Without a map you might as well be blind. There are no next tee signs and considering the landscape it is almost impossible to distinguish a path to the next tee. Some next tee signs and all tees to have tee sign this course would easily be rated as a high 3.5.
Other Thoughts: There is a nice lake, ball fields, and a playground so the kids could have some fun while you go on an adventure in disc golf history.

Fun Wooded Course
Pros: If you love hiking through woods and playing tight holes, this course is for you. Only my second time out, I enjoyed the challenge of the dense trees. Definitely "broke in" the driver here. As others have said, fun elevation changes. Used more styles of shots than I normally try. Some double basket holes (see cons).
Cons: I would highly recommend a map for this course, I tossed in the complete wrong direction on #4 or 5. Tees are rough so its difficult to run up. Some baskets are marked incorrectly (11 says 8 until you get closer). I couldnt locate the "long" basket on two of the holes. (However, I AM colorblind and it IS fall)
Other Thoughts: I will go again once I get a better handle on all my shots.

So much promise, but...
Pros: Challenging course, using the terrain very well. Need a wide variety of shots. Change-able holes.
Cons: Tee boxes are in pitiful shape. Navigating the course is very difficult without a course map, as the signage is woefully inadequate. The majority of the baskets, while usable, are in sad shape. The baskets themselves are difficult to see, as several are missing any sort of marking. Lastly, the last three holes (19, 20, and 21) are fairly pointless. The 19th hole is a trek uphill only to throw back to where you were, the 20th hole is missing its basket completely, and the 21st hole is entirely too close to the busy fields and courts.
Other Thoughts: This course has so much going for it, but the upkeep on it has been neglected. Every tee box needs repair or TLC, and all of the signage needs to be redone/replaced completely.
Updated to say that the tee boxes are in such poor shape that I felt it warranted a reduced score; I couldn't drive out off the tee without worrying about risking injury. Also, the map was redone to show the basket for #14 as also the basket for the one missing on hole #20.
