Pros: As most have said, it's a good practice course and it is a good course for a beginner as long as you're not having to drive much to get there. Nice baskets.
Cons: Took us 20 minutes to find the tee "box" (is that what you call a brick in the ground with a number painted on it?) Very poorly marked holes/tees. Come on people, is it too hard to put up a small sign. You only have to get 9 of them.Snatch up a few of these politician's signs and paint over them, anything is better than almost nothing, which is what they have.
Other Thoughts: Not challenging at all. As some have said, kinda boring. Hole one has a slight challenge (other than finding the tee box) with it's use of elevation. Play it if you're in the area and want to get in some chain time, but don't include it in your trip unless you have to drive right past it.

Pros: Decent use of elevation on hole 1. It is a decent course for people who live close and need a place to practice. If you play the pro tees, there are a few holes with a turn in them. Wide open and easy course for beginners to start playing on.
Cons: There is almost no difficulty in this course. It is not maintained as much as it should be as the grass is usually pretty long... There are about 6 trees spread out across a big field and the holes are just scattered around.
Other Thoughts: If used for practicing specific throws or for beginners, it's not terrible. I don't play there anymore, because once you've started playing real courses, there is 0 incentive to return here.

 Nines pins in a field

Pros: Quick round in the field. Good place to work on your game in the wind. Can safari and play whatever. Uses what obstacles are available. Good course for begineers to learn the game. Can be played in about 40 minutes or less
Cons: It is nine baskets in the middle of a field. Tees are only marked by bricks in the ground can be tricky to find. No maps. No directions to first tee. Only nine holes.
Other Thoughts: Next Tees are marked in bottom of basket to white and blue to at least point you in the right direction. Plenty of parking. 2.0 = reasonable which is what this course is. Not a tournament course, but a good place to knock out a quick one.
