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.

Pros:
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.
Cons:
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.
