Pros: - Course is set in a multi-use park, but the disc golf has it's own little separate section. Shouldn't be any interference from non-DGers.
- Holes are split between a more open area with mature trees, and some wooded areas with lots more trees. #5 shoots into the woods, definitely friendly to a RHBH anny to get to the basket through the gap. #6 is much tighter, a straight shot is best, with a local hyzer route present. #7's basket is kind of in the woods, around a large tree.
- Holes out in the open can be reached by a variety of lines, but there are definitely easier ones. #2, #3, and #4 are easier to reach with a RHBH anny shot, #1 and #8 are pretty much straight on, and #9 is open either way with trees in the middle of the fairway. Nothing too fancy, but there are enough trees to punish bad shots.
- Some slight elevation changes, like the hill on #4, and a few mild uphill shots like on #7 and #9. It's not much, but it helps to make things a little tougher.
- Good teepads and baskets, signs are long gone, but navigation isn't tough.
Cons: - Some holes are crammed in pretty close to each other, with teepads being in real danger of errant throws. Definitely keep an eye out.
- A lot of straightforward holes; a hyzer or anny has a lot of room to work.
- A very busy course, with discs flying all over the place, it is a good idea to come here on off-peak hours if at all possible.
Other Thoughts: - A pretty standard pitch-n-putt course that has enough trees to keep things interesting. The wooded shots help to break up the open shots. Definitely better suited for beginners, more experienced players will cruise through without issue.
