Pros: This is a BEAUTIFUL setting for a disc golf course. Both Big Brother and Classic are well worth the time and money to play.
There is a wide variety of throws to satisfy all kinds of disc golfers. There are highly technical alley throws and some wide open long bombs.

The owners of this resort really did a good job utilizing the natural terrain to make some challenging holes. Even the longer holes down hill have a bit of a twist to challenge even the most experienced disc golfers.
Cons: Put your name and number on your disc! It is not uncommon to lose a disc or three on this course especially on the longer open holes where the fairways are lined by VERY tall grass (might have to go back and play in the fall when the grass dies back!)
Other Thoughts: The owners of this place are friendly and even gave us a tour of the facilities. We are seriously considering camping out one night and playing some night disc golf.... bring your glow discs and glow sticks, I think this would be a blast.

Pros: This course uses some of the higher country on this property, with even more elevation changes (and more drastic ones) than the original course. The elevation changes are used well to make the course challenging and interesting, with a great mix of uphill and downhill holes, and several risky greens with major roll away possibility. This course plays more in the woods with a nice mix of some more open holes and several tough wooded holes with tricky elevation.

You'll need lots of different shots here, from accurate putter drives through tight wooded lanes to long holes where you'll need to have good shot placement in the wind to stay on the fairway and have a good chance to get there on your upshot. The course felt balanced between left and right turning holes, and had lots of variety so it never felt very repetitive.

The tees and signs are great, as on the original course, with nice concrete pads and informative signs. There are some longer walks between holes, but they are well enough marked that it's easy to follow this course and it gives you a chance to enjoy the pretty forest and the great views from some of the open holes on top of the hill. The baskets are in good shape, and there was no trash or vandalism here.
Cons: This course felt a little neglected, and as though it doesn't get nearly as much play as the original course. Many of the wooded holes were starting to grow over with ferns and bushes, and the paths between holes are starting to disappear into the underbrush. There are some places where the sign doesn't quite show you where to throw, so you'll need to do some extra walking your first time through.

I'm never a fan of tall grass rough, though it's not too overdone here that it really bothers me. The wooded holes have great risk/reward and will almost always cost you at least a stroke for an errant drive, but the open holes won't, they just will cost you time, possibly plastic, and maybe a little blood in some areas.
Other Thoughts: This is definitely the course on this property to play if you only have time for one, it's fun and challenging with a ton of variety. I would recommend a stop if you're anywhere near, especially with a second pretty good course on site. This one might be a little much for most newer players, but more experienced throwers will find themselves tested here. The atmosphere is even nicer on this course as it feels more remote and secluded.

Pros: WOW long course! Very challenging. Great work out. Hole 18 has a HUGE elevation change. All holes are long. Hole 1 is 1200 ft to the pin!! Takes half a day to play.
Cons: Not for the faint of heart. Bring plenty of water and a snack, takes about 4 hours to play! Tee boxes are under construction, but course is very playable without them.
Other Thoughts: This course is well worth the 5 bucks, along with the regular course you will spend a entire day on the courses. Bring a camera, beautiful landscape!!
