Short 9 holer. Bring your wedge and a golf ball along too!
Pros: 1) Nice tee signs showing hole #, distance, and a simple map of the hole.
2) Nice baskets and there is some type of tee material on 8 holes. You can use pavement 3 times instead of being on the grass. 4 other holes have rubber mats, and 2 holes just have grass to tee off from.
Cons: 1) Short course (typical for a high school course. It is positive that they have a disc golf course at the school, but it does overlap with the practice golf course too so it probably only gets used for phys. ed. classes.
3) Layout of this course causes a few criss cross ocurrances on the course. #5 and #7 tee share the same rubber pad. #8 and #1 cross fairways slightly so an errant shot could be dangerous. #1 tee also shoots over the road entrance to the high school athletic fields area. #3 basket is located cangerously close to the #4 tee.
4) I would like to see that the tee areas were consistant. Either install all rubber mats, or put little paved areas on the holes where the pavement is not currently used. The rubber mat areas are also very small making a runup difficult with the uneven footing in the grass.
Other Thoughts: This is a beloiw average course with minimal challenge and not very scenic either. It is your basic school course. It does have more obstacles than most school courses that are set out in the wide open fields near the school. This course has a lot of mature trees, a building, and a small creek as obstacles. This is nice that it creates some challenge for new players. It is better to have a course like this at a school than a wide open field. The students will learn quicker with obstacles.

pat blake design
Pros: Signs on each hole with good yardage. Little rubber mats for tees. Inexpensive I assume, and they give you enough footing to be better than natural tees. Shots seem to be "in between clubs (discs)." Pat is a good designer and I think this is intentional. With what he had to work with; I think he gave the best possible result. One nice water hole. Creek with tall woods section behind. Bucket 40 feet behind woods. Road to left. Tough to get close to bucket going over woods. If you are short, as I was, the woods may knock you into creek. If you use righty bail out zone, you are likely to land o.b. in road. Pretty little course. Nice as it can be considering it's a school course.
Cons: As always, school courses limit time of day for possible play.
