Tight and Narrow
Pros: Alternate tee stations, nice tee signs, well marked, nice use of elevatoin changes and creeks, course seemed well-maintained (recent maintenance was obvious), some unique pin placements, lots of ace runs.
Cons: Grass/dirt tees, all holes in the woods except 2 holes, some old rackety baskets, thick brush provides lots of opportunities to lose a disc,
Other Thoughts: This course doesn't offer much more than straight tight wooded shots. Only holes 1 and 9 are out in the open. All of the others are in the thick narrow woods.
The am tees were difficult enough, but I thought I'd give the long tees a try and all it gave me was a headache. Some holes seem impossible to weave your disc through the trees.
I played this course in the fall when most of the leaves were down making it a bit easier. I can't imagine how much more difficult it would be when the trees are full of leaves.
There are several short holes which provide for ace opportunities, although none were taken by myself. I only used a driver on one hole from the short tees and maybe 3 holes from the long tees. All other shots were taken with my stable mid-range discs or even my putter.
If you're in the Fort Wayne area, I'd suggest stopping by only if you like tight courses, if not, make sure to stop by West and East Swinney DGCs.

Pros: Tightly wooded course offering short tees for the novice or longs for a headache for the novice. Multiple routes through forest like setting. Good for a challenge. If you want a day at the park, go to Shoaff. Offers some very runnable holes in contrast. Wide variety of shots.
Cons: There is a lot of poison ivy and bugs are plentiful, but it's nothing long pants and a bottle of deet can't fix. There has just been a good amount of clearing done, but the shule here is untamable. Keep an eye on your disc.
Other Thoughts: The elevated pin was just an effort to mess with the donator. I don't know if I approve, but it's different.

Pros: Some unique features-raised pin, water hazards, train. Has signs.
Cons: Dirt/mud pit tees, poison ivy is everywhere, even in the middle of the fairway and under baskets so avoid the course if at all allergic. Train track in play and active-can be dangerous or hard to play around a moving train! Buggy. A basket is raised on a pole-higher than PDGA standards would allow for an event, with no stairs to climb up, so short to average height people would literally have to find a stick to knock their disc out after putting-that's just embarrassing and silly.
Other Thoughts: Avoid it-there's better close by and it's too rough and ivy filled to bother with. I didn't enjoy it at all.
