Pros: The course makes good use of the terrain it is on. This is a very good course for new players as there are few opportunities to lose a disc. It is forgiving in that fairways are typically open to one side. Approaches and putts present more of a challenge for newer players. It is very easy to get to from anywhere in the Memphis area.
Cons: Once you are experienced, the course will play fairly easy. The wide open fairways mean that you can make mistakes without having to pay for it. It can get crowded, especially on a nice day. There are no benches, bathrooms are limited, and there is no water on the course.
Other Thoughts: As a new player, I enjoyed this course much more than Johnson Road Park. I didn't feel like a mistake was going to result in a lost disc. With the wide open spaces, it gives you a chance to try things without worrying about water, hitting a tree, getting lost in the woods, etc. This is a heavily traveled course so you will get your share of rude players, but also your share of nice players who are willing to give or take advice.

Pros: If you like open hole courses then you will love this course, I like more of a mixture.
Drains well after heavy downpours.
Cons: No tee pads, all earth and are unsafe, some being 8" - 10" deep with ruts and roots running through them
No bathrooms, no benches.
No signs or distances on the tee pads.
Would be hard to navigate during a casual round .
Other Thoughts: I play GMP and I am not a fan of throwing as hard as you can on every hole.
This course had very few short technical shots.
For me it was throw as long and hard as possible.
Due to playing during heavy rains of the '09 Copper Hill Classic it was a miserable first round for all players.
I would like to play this course during dry conditions to get a better feel for the course.
