Played an afternoon Autumn round. Only one pair of golfers in a cart ahead of me the entire time so I was fortunate to not have to worry about the paying customers. This course is insanely fun with home made baskets and tee signs. Imaginative layout that seizes full use of the land. Intermingled amongst a small par three golf course most of the disc golf holes coincide with the ball golf, but do not directly follow them either. Numerous small ponds are sprinkled around the entire course providing small occurrences of finding the drink, however decent skill removes most chances of a wet disc. Minimal elevation is present. Hole 8 was pulled during my visit, hopefully it will be reinstalled. Great use of trees, angles, water, and a mixture of distances keep it interesting. Hole 10 finishes right behind 1 allowing you to keep going until your content. Fairway driver is all you need to hit distances for birdie chances. With Wingfoot close by, this course is a must visit and would provide a worthy destination for playing both. Recommended for it's ingenuity and uniqueness.

Map was very useful in navigating the course - an employee there who had never seen it commented it was quite accurate! As you might expect on a ball-golf course, it was very pretty, well-manicured, had an on-site clubhouse for bathroom and food access, etc.
Every hole but #1 plays along/across/near the ball-golf greens/fairways/tees, and I'm assuming they, the paying customers, would have priority when the course is crowded.
Water, in the form of small ponds, potentially comes into play on six of the ten holes, typically near the basket, except for #7, where it plays along your right-side the entire length of the hole. Course is quite flat, except for down-a-wooded-slope #1, elevated tee-position #5, and up-wooded-slope #10. Some holes I found particularly interesting were: #2, the most open path to the basket is a sweeping right-turner, but that brings the edge of a pond into play - do you go for it? #5 is fun, as you tee from the same elevated area as the ball golfers. It has a huge, open-n-flat fairway, with a row of trees running down the middle. The ball golfers go down the left half, while the disc golfers thrown down the right half. Both the ball golf green and the basket are about the same distance away.
The large, light-maroon "Frisbie #" signs that marked indicated the tee location were kinda unique. 18-hole ball-golf course just south of this course, so don't pull into their parking lot instead.
Despite losing my go-to driver, a Champ-Valk, on #9 when I threw too far and too right :-(, I really enjoyed this course and would certainly play it again if in the area.

snowy winter round
Pros: impressed with the hole selections here, fun and challenging holes. Interesting pin locations. Baskets are red and home made but still work very well. Map REALLY helps! ty Eric. nice flow to the holes, and easy to find next hole. Water does not come into play for sure throwers. Was able to disc here although the golf course was not open. (parked at the gate and walked in)
Cons: Not long enough. Only 10 holes. Tee signs had no pin location map or distances. I'm sure discing here while people were golfing would not be fun as fairways overlap. 1, 5 and 10 are the only holes with real elevation changes. Some sure birdies and then some impossible birdies. In the middle of nowhere. Had to play three rounds to actually feel disc golf satisfaction.
Other Thoughts: DON'T GO IN THE WINTER! Lots of snow drifts make it easy to lose discs.Also, water hazards can look like greens and vice versa when frozen and snow covered.
I agree this place would be a fun spot for an event if ball golf course was closed and more holes added.
Overall, check it out if you are in the area. But not worth making a long trip.
