Pros: it is an open field, hardly any tree's, if you go into or over the creek..it's easy to cross because it's so small.
Cons: the wind. if it is the slightest bit windy outside. this course is just one big wind tunnel. standing at hole #1, the wind is coming from the left usually so make sure to throw with a nice hyzer for right handed players. it's sometimes hard not to go over the wooden fence or into the road when i throw flat.
Other Thoughts: the chain link fence is really no big deal because even if you throw over the fence, there are 2 big openings you can go into to retrieve them, just watch out for those thorny tree's, they are everywhere on the other side of that fence.

Pros: This course has a couple of elevation shots. The baskets do have the hole numbers on them by tape on the pole. If you are looking for a course with simple holes and no obstacles, this might be one of them.
Cons: Ok so no water, tee signs, trashcans, restrooms, an information board, and very few trees. Every shot is a clear open straight shot. Finding the tee pads is basically looking for a worn spots on the ground. Once you figure out #1 runs along the road, #2is back up the hill close to the parking lot, and #5 is out in the middle of this fenced in field, you should be good to go. The next hole's tee is about where you would guess them to be.
Other Thoughts: There was not a fun factor for me. The drive to get here is not worth the effort. I think it is great that they built a course though. I love trying new courses out no matter how they are. We should be thankful for all the courses we have in the area. This one was just too simple for my taste, but if the local people can't travel too far, they at least have a place to play.

Pros: Not crowed. Easy access to a highway. It is very open. There are a few trees, but they really don't come into play. Hole #1 is a interesting down hill shot.
Cons: Dirt tee boxes are hard to find. It's difficult to know where the next hole is...I had to ask someone. There are no tee box signs. The grass is not well maintained...kind of high with some stickers. The holes are not very challenging or creative...mostly 250-300 ft, straight shots.
Other Thoughts: It is basically a collection of baskets in an open field. This is a good place for practice. Not really some place you'd make an effort to go play. Sneak over there during lunch to practice your drives and putting,,,but you'll be disappointed if you drive there for your weekend disc adventure.

Pros: Good for beginners. Not many hazards.
Cons: Very few trees, surrounded by 12' high chain link fence (easy to lose a disc behind). Not particularly well kept, no real markings for the tees.
Other Thoughts: This would be a great place to work on driving technique, open space without many obstacles.
