Pros: The course plays through a seemingly disc golf exclusive area with a mix of tight wooded tunnel shots and more open holes . Many of the open holes bring stands of brush or the edge of the woods into play to keep the shots a little more interesting. There is one small elevation change on the property, but it's used well to make a fun hole up and out of the woods.

All holes have dual tees, marked with tall posts that are color coded and numbered. A few of the long tees offer a different line, and all add some distance for a little more variety. The baskets are newer discatchers that are in good shape and catch well.
Cons: The course has a very creepy and abandoned vibe, especially with no sign, just a broken gate to mark the course entrance. The wooded holes are pretty thick, and not cleared of downed brush or small stumps. Off the fairways gets pretty dense with thorns and stickers, along with lots of poison ivy.

The layout is a bit odd, the flow of the course isn't always obvious. A couple holes are oddly designed, with no good line to the hole. There isn't a whole lot of variation in distance here, there's room for a long bomb out in the open. The tunnel holes are a nice change of pace, but they aren't very interesting shapes to mix things up. The tees are natural, and all are pretty lumpy and uneven, you risk your ankles if you do much of a run up here.
Other Thoughts: The course has some potential, but it would need quite a bit of work and some holes would need some rethinking to really be a course worth going out of your way for. Beginners will find the rough very punitive, but the short tees aren't too terribly challenging. More experienced players will find a couple interesting shots, but there's just not enough variety or challenge to keep you coming back.
