Pros: Mixture of short and long holes. Holes 1, 2, 3, 12, 13, 14 and 18 are very nice.
Cons: Thorns, thorns, thorns. Lost discs. Ticks. Make sure ALL your discs are labeled. You'll lose one in the thorns and you won't want to go in looking for it. Transitions from 4->5, 6->7, 7->8, 11->12 are not easy to find. Hike from 7->8/16->17 is significantly long.

Holes 8, 9, 10, 11, 15, 16 have the worst rough you'll ever encounter (if it has thorns, it grows in that rough.)

Another minor sore point is that the tee signs only list the distance to one basket (and which basket that is is not known). Well, that is, when they list a distance at all. Several signs do not seem to have maps or distance on them any longer.

No restrooms. No water.
Other Thoughts: Use Deet as tick repellant (it should be mandatory). I've been bitten thrice. I've lost three discs in the thorns, but found many others while hunting for mine. Water fountain would be nice. So would a restroom.

Seriously folk LABEL YOUR DISCS! We'll get them back to you if they are labeled. (yes I found 6 more discs over the weekend, and only 2 were labeled.) [7 more found in Dec, only 2 of those were labeled] Another 8 found since Jan, 4 of those with known owners.

Pros: Cool course overall. You start out beside an old prison on top of a hill. A few short holes to get started then it goes off into the woods for some more extreme ones. The fairways are well-maintained and kept pretty open.
Cons: Don't go off of the fairway. Any shot that lands off of the fairway is going to be in very thick, sharp, painful bushes. The course itself would be great if it wasn't for the thorns. There are also a couple of spots where you have to walk a long distance to get to the next hole. (from 7 to 8, then from 16 back to 17). It's a nice park and a decent trail, so the walk isn't too bad.
Other Thoughts: This course could easily be rated around a 3.5-4, but it was the most painful round I have ever played. There were 4 of us that played it, and we all left bloody.
