Pros: Quick 9 hole course. This course tends to be not used too often. It was the first course I ever played. It is a good beginners course because it does not have that many obstacles and it is quite hard to lose a disc but it can happen. It has pro tees and standard tees.
Cons: Tees can be extremely hard to find because they are just bricks in the ground. I have played here many times and the grass was not mowed and it was hard finding my disc after my drive. It is only a nine hole course witch can prove to be quite annoying if you want to play for a while.
Other Thoughts: It was the first course I have played so it kinda is sentimental. I would choose this course over fishburn park in roanoke va. anyday.

Blue/white arrows on each basket which will, for the most part, help you find the next tee area - persistence pays off! Without these, you'd be lost.

Only a mile off I81, near gas stations, amenities (El Rodeo for good Mexican food), bathrooms on site.

Several changes in elevation, especially from the blue tees.
Grass tees are marked by ground-level bricks that can be difficult to find.

Fairly wide open course, with only a couple of trees near baskets providing any sort of obstacle.

Particularly from the blues, tees, fairways, and baskets can interfere with each other - teeing for blue #7, for example, has blue tee #6 throwing from behind/over you, blue tee #5 throwing towards you for basket #5 behind your other side!
Other Thoughts:
To find blue tee #1, from the log cabin/senior rec center, follow the gravel path behind the bathroom towards the baseball field - as you near the rightfield corner, look down along the left side of the path.

To find white tee #1, go to the right back corner of the log cabin, then head diagonally towards the woods towards the nearest evergreen - tee will be about halfway between building and woods.

From the white tees, the holes range in distance from 200-375', with an average of 265'; from the blues, the range is 275-450', with an average of 350'.

From the whites, the tees play rather neutrally, but from the blues, probably the advantage goes to LHBH throwing hyzers.
