Pros: Good course for all, three different tees. Longs, alternates, and shorts. Wooded and open holes for variety. Three mandos for course complexity. The boy scouts have placed several benches on the white long holes. Concrete is being poured and half of the holes are done. Park is well maintianed and groomed.
Cons: Beware of the cats. disc in woods go to grab it there might be a cat near buy that startles you. Busy on the summer weekends with other park users. Hole one has some major drainage problems when it rains.
Other Thoughts: After the storm came through it has changed a few holes. Hole five is missing a huge tree which makes a birdie possible now. Nine is wide open now with a little luck a possible ace in the future. Hole fourteen has a bigger gap to throw though which allows for a high release. Sixteen b has a wide open drive available now where a huge tree use to be. So future moves of the baskets might need to happen to keep the challenge up for this course. Overall nice course.

Pros: - As mentioned, has a good combination of open and wooded holes.
- 3 tee/course options (rec being the easiest, A being moderate and B being the most challenging)
- Quick playing course allows the option to play multiple times.
Cons: - Plays tight around a public park.
- Lack of concrete tee boxes makes a slip hazard on rainy/sloppy days.

Pros: Good mix of wooded and open shots, well marked, fun holes (hole 15 over the gorge), not too hard to find any lost discs
Cons: So many bugs flying around my head during field shots, some holes were fairly muddy
Other Thoughts: Overall, this course was great - I'd hope there'd be something done about the bugs flying around, especially the bees - even then, it's a great course to play.

Hole 15 WOW!
Pros: Huge variety of holes. The most memorable hole I've ever played! Hole 15 = Intimidation!
Great combo of open shots and precision shots. Most of the holes are good distance, nothing too long.
Cons: A couple of the holes go over the parking lot, so try to go early in the day during the week.
Other Thoughts: Grab a map at the first tee...it helps.

Pros: The course is spread out in a park located next to the Appomattox river with a variety of challenging holes, in the open and in moderately wooded sections. Recently updated with an additional 9 baskets for a total of 18!!
The majority of holes offer unique challenges and new topography, most notably hole #15 over the huge gorge. Pics don't do it justice. The vastness of the gorge is an effective distraction and can thwart an otherwise accurate and strong arm.
Many holes feature mini creeks and water ways. Little makeshift bridges add character.
Red and White (short/long) tee sections for varying skills as well as alternates tee locations.
Cons: Grab a map as the red/white plank markers can be tricky to find your first couple times around.
Recently added arrow markers on trees help point you in the right direction to the next hole.
The meowing cats and kittens pay no attention to the "quiet" signs your friends may hold up during your shots.
Marshy areas could make things messy on wet days. Expect muddy conditions from recent rainfall especially hole #1. Hole #13 has a relocated basket to the right from it's inital position (which basically became a lake from rainfall).
The park shares much of it's landscape with patrons. Keep an eye out for V-ball players and golfers on hole #5. A stray disc to the left @ hole #10 could take out a small child on the playground. Keep an eye for your disc when throwing on hole #15 and #16 as it can easily become lost or missing around the gorge/bridge.
Other Thoughts: The addition of 9 more baskets really elevates the course to a new level. Recent fine tuning of the course from Daniel Cotter addressed some fundamental issues any new course would have. New signs point the way. A new colorful map better outlines the course.
Thankfully the Colonail Heights rec. dept. is on task with supporting the d-golf cause and I would like to thank them as well as Daniel for taking their time, money, and effort in providing us with a great facility.
