Pros: Some holes with tons of elevation.
Cons: Tons of brush. Several baskets placed within 15 feet of water. Lots of walking. Can be extremely overgrown. Major disc hazards.
Other Thoughts: I have lost six discs on the course and i have only played four times. My buddy has lost four in two games. Its not just the water, i have lost two discs in the thick brush. I mean i saw where they went roughly and still couldn't find them. So thick you cant even walk through it!

Pros: This is a good course for experienced players. Blue level pros can expect to shoot around par, but it is a tough course, so you will have to earn your score. The design is very good, with a lot of variety and interesting shots. The course makes good use of the rough and the little elevation change, that will make you think twice about some of the throws you are about to make.
Cons: The tee pads are natural and there are no tee signs. There are 2 big stones that mark each tee pad, but they are not marked. You will either need a guide or a good map in order to play this course for the first time. Based on what I've heard, the rough can get very rough if you play this course during the spring/summer months, so keep that in mind if you plan to play this course. Even when clean, this course is not beginner friendly.
Other Thoughts: This is a tricky course to review for me because I have only played it during, or right before tournaments, when it is in it's best condition. The course is pretty awesome once you know your way around and it is in good condition. However, I have heard some of the horror stories of how bad this course can look in the summer when it is not being taken care of by anybody. There are a few select pros who take care of the course when they can, but with so many courses in this great disc golf city, there is only so much that they are able to do. Basically, it is a great course design in a bad situation. I will glady up the rating of this course once it has tee signs and good tee pads and the course is taken care of more consistently. It is a fun and challenging course to play, but I would only recommend it for experienced players and even then, I hope you catch the course when it is in good condition.
