Interesting Shared Use with Ball Golf Course. Good, especially where there are trees.

Pros: Nice Mach V baskets.
As you might expect, the terrain is nicely groomed and I don't remember seeing any place where you could lose a Disc easily.
The holes are interesting and moderately challenging in the woods and the most is made of those that necessarily exist out in the open. Some well-placed shallow water hazards are there, too, and some nice PVC-pipe fetching devices are left for you to easily snatch your Disc should it unfortunately take a little bath.
You'd better believe there is good roller territory! The grass for the open holes is good enough to hit golf balls off of it, so if you have a roller option in your arsenal, you might enjoy that aspect here.
The rubber pads appear to be of better quality than the type I'm used to seeing. In most cases, they weren't in bad shape.
If you like pulling your longest distance driver out of your bag and firing away with it, you'll get to do that on several occasions, unless you are Scott Stokely circa 1998.
I found 3 golf balls. I keep them for when I need to dislodge Discs from trees. :-)
Cons: You do have to walk a fair amount to access the course, and also to return to your car after finishing. Since there was no sign directing us to the first tee at the pro shop, we started walking the ball golf course until we spotted the back side of the Disc Golf welcome sign a good 1,000 feet or more into the property. It took 20 minutes to figure out what was going on. Once you're there, though, the course isn't difficult to navigate.
There is another spot on the course with a good 500' or 600' walk where a nice hole could've been put in. I think it was near the halfway point, just after exiting the densest of the wooded holes. We weren't sure if we had missed a hole or not. It turns out we just needed the exercise.
Good pro players won't be challenged here, but it should be fun for them. Some of the wooded territory is adequately challenging for most of us mortals, but certainly nothing that will come close to frustrating an advanced player. (I'm a middle-aged former mediocre Am-1 player who can't throw over 300' and I shot a +3 here today).
Other Thoughts: Even with lengthy walks to and from the course from the parking lot, it's wide open with well-manicured grass...Time to practice those rollers on your way back to your car!

Nice use of space
Pros: The course plays between holes on a ball golf course, and through a section of woods. The space available is used excellently, none of the holes really conflict with the golf course at all, so the two sports can coexist without safety issues either way. There is a nice selection of longer holes with a few obstacles, and a handful of shots through denser trees with tight lines to hit. The holes with enough trees to define a line were a balanced mix of left and right turning shot, and called for several different shot shapes to keep things interesting.
The tees are great rubber pads, some of the nicest I've played on. They seemed sturdier and grippier than other rubber pads I've played on, and had a nice diamond plate style texture. The longer set of tees had a good set of tee signs with hole distance and layout. The shorter set of tees offers an easier layout for less experienced players, with a lot less distance on the open holes and more open lines in the woods.
Cons: There are too many open, long holes here. They get pretty repetitive after a while, there could be a lot more holes back in the woods and it would be a lot more fun and interesting. There are some navigation issues in a couple spots, it's not completely obvious where to go. One spot has a really long walk between holes, it seems like it was designed with golf carts in mind, we chose to walk and it took a while.
Other Thoughts: This is a nice use of the unused space on and around the golf course, and a fun course. With pretty good tees and signage, and even a practice hole before the 1st hole, it seems like some money and work goes into the course. Beginners will find some holes a little long, but they're not too punitive or tough for a beginner to have some fun. More experienced players won't be really challenged or tested here, but there are some good holes that make it worth a stop.

get the cart, or walk for miles
Pros: only course around with ave holes over 400ft
great for getting driver practice
can rent carts... but its like 15 bucks or more
for a ball golf course, they tried to add in some woods play... but minimal
Cons: too open, this aint kansas and a ballgolf course has different intentions when designing holes
from basket to next tee is the furthest i've ever seen, with a cart ya might not notice, on foot its worth it to throw practice drives from basket to next tee
Other Thoughts: great conditioned course, kept up like a ball course
expensive all around, but they have cooked food, tons of discs, just not worth the drive for me, yet i'll play it once a year or so
wish they had some mandos to make you shape diferent shots, not much variety, just long open holes

Pros: Practice hole, nice rubber tees, nice baskets with flags above for locating them easily, nice tee marker signs, variety of holes, pro and am tee pads, option to ride golf cart.
Cons: Very long, holes in the woods were seperate from holes in the open, long hole after long hole after long hole, long walk from course club house to start and end of disc golf course.
Other Thoughts: This course was different than any other course I have played. The fact that I played on a very windy day (20-25 mph gusts) and very cold (about 35 F) made this course more difficult than it already was. To sum up my overall review in one word would be: LONG.
If I play this course again, I will definitley consider using a golf cart. The walk to the first hole is quite long from the clubhouse. There is also a very long trek after the 9th hole to hole 10. The journey back to the clubhouse after hole 18 is even longer and up a huge hill.
The first few holes of this course were out in a more open area with some larger trees and the third hole had a small pond in play. Hole four was super long playing at over 700 feet (we played the pro tees) and was in the wide open.
Holes 5-9 were in the woods and I really liked these holes a lot. They were not nearly as long and they had a lot of elevation changes.
Holes 10-18 were more out in the open and all seemed very long.
If you have a long arm, then this course is for you, if not, it will be very frustrating. I guess I'm just use to having birdie (2) opportunities on most holes from most other courses I play and it seemed that a 2 was only possible on a handful of holes on this course.
$3 for 18 holes walking, $12 for 18 holes riding (recomended). Check the link provided for scorecard with lengths of the holes.
