Go for the Disc Shop, Stay to Play the Course
0 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: -Disc shop located nearby in the Boat House that offers nice selection of Innova and Discraft discs.
-Good signage and tee pads
-Decent variety in distance and finesse shots
-Park is very nice and offers things for the whole family
-Baskets get moved around from time to time which adds variety
Cons: -Lot of holes are wide open which can make it very hot to play during the summer and take some of the difficulty out of the course.
-A few of the holes seem to have unrealistic pars
-Tee shot on first hole has high susceptibility for losing discs in the woods
-Decent distance from interstate in high traffic area, makes getting to the course somewhat difficult.
Other Thoughts: My main reason for visiting the course is to purchase discs at the boat house. It is one of the only places I have been able to find in a reasonable distance for me to find Discraft discs, and the selection of colors and weights is very good! The course itself is a decent place to try out drivers that you purchase, since the course is mostly open (avoid using a new disc on first hole). Allows you some time to learn the discs.
The course itself isn't anything that special. It is fun to play on occasion, but I don't think I would enjoy playing it on a regular basis.
Overall, the experience is very good. Would recommend visiting the shop to buy discs and then play the course afterward, but wouldn't travel out of the way just to play the course.

Pros: Good course design. A solid variation of hyzer, anhyzer, and forehand holes with some great elevation changes throughout the course. Mostly open holes with a lot of space for big drives. This course heavily favors those who can throw far. A more enjoyable course for beginners than others in Memphis because there are fewer trees to hit than on some of the more wooded courses such as Shelby Forest or Bud Hill. Shelby Farms also has some other great stuff on property, so this is a wonderful course to play if you're looking for a fun afternoon.
Cons: Because nearly every hole is open the course can get a bit repetitive, especially for those who cannot throw +350. Lots of easy par threes with only a few birdie opportunities. The wind can also get crazy here because it is so wide open.
Other Thoughts: A fun course to play when mixed in with other courses around Memphis. This course provides a more wide open course than others, and thus provides some well-needed variety.

Pros: Nice course. Pretty scenery. Let's you pull out the big gun, ON EVERY THROW.
VERY VERY LONG.
One of the baskets was halfway hanging together when I played it because some tractor had ran into it. I think it was hole 14 or something like that.
