Nice Course in the Middle of Nowhere
Pros: -2 concrete tees and baskets per hole
-Beautiful multi-use park on Back Bay
-Very well maintained
-Light if any course traffic
Cons: -Flat and fairly open
-Wind can be an issue
Other Thoughts: First the park is always very well maintained, which is impressive for a park of its size. The layout generally runs clockwise around the park. Most holes are fairly short, but there are a few the player could open up on. Scoring -10+ is very doable for the intermediate player. Risk/ reward level is fairly low making it a good course for newer players.
The park is kinda far from most amenities. The village of Pungo is close with a couple of gas stations. Course is flat, but that is typical for the area. Hole 8 could be considered the signature hole as it plays on a peninsula, but if you can throw straight it is not too much of a challenge. Wind can be an issue.
All in all it is a fun, but not overly difficult course in a very nice park. Definitely worth the trip out.

Two top quality baskets (red band = long, yellow band = short) per hole. Two practice baskets located next to parking lot, equidistant between tees-1 and baskets-18.
Two top quality 4'x12' concrete teepads per hole. Signs with distance information at each teepad.
Quite flat. Long-to-short and short-to-long fairly similar.
Course plays next to the woods and water forming the border of a very nice and well maintained multi-purpose park. The course skirts the woods, and only plays near the water on a couple (#8 and #9 fairways) of holes. The views of the water (fairways 8, 9, 12, basket 14) are quite nice.
Course is dead flat. Holes are open in their near entirety, at times needing to miss a couple of large tree trunks, typically early or mid flight. Most holes are either dead straight the whole way, or require a bid of left fade at the end, although a few holes have mandos to force right mid-fairway turns. Errant throws are not severely punished, unless you find the water, or penetrate into the dense treeline forming the park border.
Navigation: The online map makes navigation automatic. Fairly simple even without it - course plays in a clockwise around the edges of the park, the only "long" walks being - practice baskets to tee-1, basket-9 to tee-10, and basket-18 to practice baskets.
A bit off the beaten path, but a pleasant play in nice surroundings. If technical/tight is your preference, don't bother, but if 225'-350', flat, mostly open with a few trees to miss appeals to you, pay a visit.

Pros: Well maintained.
Cons: It's out there a ways. Slightly east of east bumf@$?. It's wide open and flat. Boring and doesn't present many challenges.
Other Thoughts: If you're desperate to add courses to your resume go ahead but I wouldn't recommend it. You're better off going to an open field and throwing. You'll get the same enjoyment and feeling.

One of the nicest!
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Two concrete pads & two baskets on each hole for variety, super nice, clean, and well maintained park with plenty for everyone, a lot of open holes, some with a few with trees, very little fairway overlaps, most days has no traffic (since it's so far from everything.)
Cons: Is a long drive from almost anywhere. Some would say that the course is boring w/no elevation changes but, hey, that's the topography here; FLAT!
Other Thoughts: This course ruined me for all other courses! This was the first course I ever played and I've since played on 6 others (in 3 different states) and though some are nice, they all come up short compared to this one. The park is very large and adjoins the sound. It has modern playground equipment in several areas, benches, picnic tables, and shelters throughout. There is baseball/softball, volleyball, basketball, horse shoes, boat ramps, equipment rental (including canoe's), picnic areas on the water...something for everyone. The course is well kept (almost manicured) with a mix of tree'd and open holes. (True, there aren't a LOT of trees but enough to give some holes a bit of a challenge. I would not consider this a wooded course!) Holes 8 and 9 have water hazards which might cost you a disk of you don't take the wind coming off the water into account. The course if very flat (as everthing around here is) so there is virtually no elevation changes. Some have complained that this is boring but anyone (including "tagalongs") that might not be in the best shape should still have no problems walking the course and still have a good time. On some holes, there's just enough underbrush along the edges to punish you for getting especially sloppy but not so much that you have to spend half the game in the thorns if your throw is only a little off. There are 2 tees and 2 baskets for every hole giving some variety though I must admit that the long tees are very challenging (almost tedios for someone of my limited skill level at least) with some having obstacles nearly in front of the tees. Though most fairways are open, screening / obstacle trees have ben planted and have grown nicely over the last couple of years. (I now have to go around trees that I once could have simply thrown over!) Overall, the best course I've played and worth the 45 minute drive to get there.

Pros: Easy to navigate the course. Two tees and two baskets per hole to play 4 course possibility. Has some distance holes. The signature hole is nice.
Cons: All holes are pretty much open. Some of the short baskets are in the way of the long baskets. Felt like the same shots on the holes. Not a big variety of shots. Very flat.

Great place for some golf

Pros: Red and white tee pads for all holes, as well as red and yellow baskets for each hole. This course is on a wonderful park for the whole family and very well taken care of.
Cons: Some of the fairways come a bit too close to people that are picnicking or grilling.
Other Thoughts: This was a great place to play and it is well worth the trip.

Pros: well maintained course.
pads are all concrete.
challenging holes on 8 and 9
Cons: the only con i can come up with is that it is overly easy to lose discs on holes 8 and 9 as they go out on a peninsula

cool course but a drive
Pros: clean course and a beautiful view of the bay. two pins per hole and most holes have 2 pads. Lots of facilities and park for the kids.
Cons: The only thing that i have a problem with is that it is about a 45 minute drive to almost another state for me.

Pros: This course is very clean and well kept. There are multiple concrete tee pads and baskets on every hole, allowing for repeated play without becoming too mundane. There are plenty of park facilities including bathrooms, courts, playgrounds, etc, so you can take the kids and they can still have fun. This park is situated right on the water, and it makes for a gorgeous round of disc golf. Some of the holes have a decent bit of distance to them. There are some sweet ace lines if you're feeling frisky. There are plenty of benches and trashcans, and some entertaining mandos to spice it up. There are also signs at each tee pad showing the layout and distances.
Cons: While this course is beautiful, it's kind of boring. There are only a couple holes with any kind of challenge to them....the rest are pretty much just clear open holes with a cage at the end. Also, referring to half of the course as "wooded" is using the term very loosely. There are only about 5 holes that have trees that ACTUALLY get in the way. The course is out of the way and somewhat hard to find without a GPS.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course for beginner to intermediate level players, as the holes are mostly set up such that you can see the cages from the tee, and there aren't really a whole lot of places for discs to hide. It's also a very beautiful park...I will definitely be playing there again if only for that reason. While the rounds are enjoyable, they're just not very challenging. Playing long tees/baskets helps. Also, when you finish on 9, head towards the boat ramp and just keep walking...you'll find 10 next to the closest shelter past the park office. Other than that, it's all pretty easy to follow. Try and avoid sunset rounds...there are a couple holes where you'll be blinded trying to shoot in to the sun. There IS the sweet water hole, so floaters would be nice to have in the bag, and this is a great place to work on your wind game, as the breeze coming off the water can be super strong.

Pros: -It has a nice blend of wooded and open holes. -The park is kept clean.
-It has water hazards.
-White and red tees have signs marking distance to yellow and red baskets.
-2 practice baskets located in the center parking lot.
-Constant breeze off of the river with an occasional gust, adds a little extra difficulty.
Cons: -Holes are short.
-Long drive to get to the park.
-It has water hazards.
Other Thoughts: This course could easily fit 2 more holes somewhere, like Bayville fit in.
Could benefit from the addition of blue and gold tees.
