Has concrete tee pads
Has tee signs
Has some benches throughout course
Has good mix of wooded and open fairways with elevations and doglegs
Has a good variety of pars
Has next tee signs
Losing a disc in water at holes #9, #10, or #14-16 shouldn't be much of a factor as it's shallow or dried up
Free Parking at multiple locations
Potential safety issues where the course flows near populated areas of the park at holes #4, #5, & #17
Course design and flow could use improvement as there are long walks between holes #4 & 5, #5 & 6, #7 & 8, #11 & 12, and #15 & 16
Could use more next tee signs especially after holes #5 and #15
This is a nice, challenging multi-use course in Columbia County that I enjoyed playing. It was a welcome change playing this course after playing Steady Ed and Jim Warner from the previous day where this course had more of a balance between wooded and open fairways and less change in elevation. There are some long walks between holes here with my longest one being after hole #5. The course map posted here somehow indicates that there are two pin positions for hole #5 - there's only one position and it's the short one. After completing this hole, I recommend that you proceed straight across the parking lot to find the teepad for hole #6. If you go left from the hole #5 basket like I did, you won't find it and end up in the woods searching for it. Aside from that hole, playing holes #4 and #17 can also be uncomfortably close to other parkgoers if present and unaware. I visited this park on a Thursday morning and can see it being popular on the weekends. If you're near the IDGC and have the time to play, I recommend playing this course.

Great variety in length, from an ace run, multiple birdy opportunities, easy-to-tough pars, and a few legitimate par-4s.
The excellent map, and directional signage scattered about, made the course a cinch to navigate.
Long-n-wide concrete tees, wooden benches, and trash cans for every hole.
Single tee/single pin position.
About half the holes, 6-15, are missing the tee signs, and the signs that do remain are in poor shape.
Other than #5, which plays near the road/parking lot, the course, located in a multi-purpose park, does not interfere with the other park users, playing in the utilities right-of-way and the edges of the woods forming the border of the park.
About half the holes are entirely contained within the woods, and have fair, but challenging, throwing lanes to hit. Only a couple holes are wide open. The remainder brings the woods into play in various ways, e.g.. open, pass through a bottleneck, then open again on the other side; or, treeline along entire leftside, also containing the basket, but ample room to swing the disc wide right on the drive.
There are subtle elevation changes on most every hole. Fairly even blend of straight/left-/right-turning shots needed from the teepad.
Favourite hole: #6. Flat, in the woods, straight the first ~225', then a sharp right, followed by a gentle continuation to the right as the flight path narrows as I heads to the basket another ~225' away.
Very solid course which should appeal to the intermediate/advanced audience.

Pros: Located in a well maintained multi use park, that offers plenty of parking, restrooms/port-a johns and activities for non disc golfing family members.
Each hole had a nicely sized concrete tee pad and accompanying tee post, which made finding them easier for the first timer. There is a nice clockwise flow around the park.
Not entirely a wooded hole course. There is good use of elevation, and throwing over or near a small creek that weaves its way through some of the wooded holes. The hole distances varies, from some reachable deuce holes, to some longer par 4s. Good balance of different distances.
Cons: The biggest con for me was that a lot of the tee post were either missing, damaged or vandalized, which made it difficult on some holes to know the distance information, and if you were on the correct tee pad.
There were longer than normal walks between 11 and 12, and 15 and 16. A little difficult finding hole 6, while hole 16 was very muddy. I felt hole 17 was a little too close to a tennis court, with a really bad shot, could potentially enter the court.
Other Thoughts: This is definitely more difficult than your typical pitch and putt course. There is more variety, and length here. You will be challenged to make shots and control your disc.
Being a single tee, single basket course, it makes use of the available land that it's on. Providing additional tee or basket locations would only improve the course.
Since there are a lot of wooded holes on the course, there is a reasonable possibility of losing a disc.
If your in the area to play the IDGC courses, which are near by, this is a great compliment to those courses. It should not be missed.

Solid Course in Multi-use Facility
Pros: This course offers a little bit of everything in a fairly confined environment. It's located in a multi-use facility that includes tennis courts, basketball courts, football fields, and baseball fields. Even with all of these taking up a majority of the park, the designers of this course still managed to produce a great layout with what they had. Most of the holes have clear fairways with strategically placed trees to shape your drives. However, there is still a good deal of variation in distance, the direction of the holes, and elevation. Sloping greens also make for a challenge on most holes. Some of the holes have signs indicating distance, almost all have benches, and there are a good number of trash cans to be found. All tees are concrete and are plenty big enough for a run-up.
Cons: Although there were signs on some holes, none of the signs actually provided maps of the holes. The fact that a lot of the holes have baskets that can't be seen from the tee makes this an inconvenience for the average traveler coming through without a guide. There are also few places to find water on the course, and if the main building is locked then you're completely out of luck. Also some minor erosion and drainage problems on some holes, but overall these were not bad.
Other Thoughts: Overall this was a great course to play. I was able to rip some maximum distance drives on a few holes, but the majority of the holes call for accuracy over power. I also wanted to add that the locals using the other amenities at the park were exceptionally nice. If you're driving into Augusta from Atlanta you should make this your first stop. A great warm up for any of the courses at Wildwood or Hippodrome.

Pros: Excellent course for those who are serious about wanting to get better. The mando's force you to throw certain ways.
Cons: Highly used park, they host many events which can stop and event prevent you from playing.
