Really enjoyed playing this course
Pros: Start by checking in at the on-site, air-conditioned clubhouse/proshop that has refreshments and discs for sale. You'll receive a scorecard and course map. Concrete tee pads in three different lengths make this course playable by almost all skill levels. The hole numbers are etched into the tee pads. The baskets are a mix of brands but all double chains. The mowed fairways here are beautiful. Unlike its sister course on property "The Hill Course", this one actually feels like a country club setting. The tees and baskets look to be equipped with solar powered lights to facilitate night golf play. This course is mostly flat but with a fun mix of holes requiring different shots from your bag. Very well maintained and very clean course.
The signage here was sparse, though navigation was not too difficult given a course map in hand. The holes are mostly open and a bit more in the way of obstacles would make this a great fun course to play. Baskets are all temp mounts so they get moved when the course is mowed and as such hole distances can change somewhat.
I had a blast playing the Shire course after tackling the Hill course. As a first timer, my one mistake was not walking far enough up the fairway to locate the blind basket on #13, that cost me several strokes. I'd imagine that some tourneys might play OB if you're off the mowed fairways. Four stars for this course might be a bit high, but considering you have two courses on site, the clubhouse amenities, and the fun I had playing I'm sticking to four stars for now. That might drop a half-star or so upon repeated playings. Pay to play course.

Pros: The previous review was spot on with the info so most of my comments are in the "other thoughts" section.
Cons: Just trying to nitpick here. Course could be mowed. Although, I believe the area had some rain the week before. It wouldn't be worthy of complaint other than I felt obligated to type something.
Other Thoughts: I'm fairly new to DG so my experience with other courses is limited. The course gave me a variety of shots and with the 3 different boxes gave me options. The pro shop is one of the nicest I've seen. The lady in front was extremely nice. The facility and course was very clean. First time players do in fact get to play free. Even at $10 I will definately play when I'm in the area.
