Very nice short course
Pros: The grounds are beautiful, with picnic like environment. Every hole plays differently. Some are short, a few are a real distance stretch.
Cons: Only 9 holes, and no pin variations cut down on replayability. Poison ivy arund many trees/rough is a negative -- bring extra drivers and a plastic bag.
Other Thoughts: The two tee locations really do not play differently from each other.

Convenient location (for some of us, anyway)
Pros: Pro & AM tees make a full round possible, till this hopefully becomes an 18-hole course. Sturdy baskets/quality chains. Well maintained park. The Alternate pin is a clever idea. Lovely map of the course is posted on sign at parking area, along with which distances are posted adequately (just jot 'em on your scorecard).
Cons: Of course increasing number of baskets would be better.
The "stand to right of tee" rule should not apply to Pro tee 1, because of parking barrier.
Other Thoughts: Thanks!
Driving Hole 7 was a blast from both tees.
There is a spot-a-pot available in the parking area.

A fun course
Pros: Very unique layout as it is mostly on the side of a hill.
Provides a great opportunity to work on up and down hill throws.
Some nice variety with a few tight holes, a few moderate holes and some good old open holes.
Cons: Only 9 holes right now but still fun to play a quick round
May be a little open for some folks but I feel like it is a good mix
Other Thoughts: Fun to play and worth the visit if you are in the area. Hopefully 9 more holes can be added to turn this into a full DG experience.

Fun for a beginner
*A good first course for a beginner, as it was the first course I ever played.
*The holes are varied enough to provide a challenge, yet not so hard as to discourage a new player.
*Only 9 holes.
*No tee pads
*No signage as to distance/par for each hole
Other Thoughts: This was my first ever course and brought me into the world of disc golf. Holes 3 and 4 are pretty hard for a new RHBH player. Hole 7 is a blast of a downhill hole. Hole 9 can eat some discs when the skating pond is filled yet not frozen over.
I would love to see this course expanded into a full 18 holes. There seems to be plenty of area for some more holes to be added, for instance back the trail behind the basket for 6.
If you are not 100% accurate and hate thorns beware, as a newbie I've got several "battle scars".
This course is only about 7 miles away from my house, so as the weather gets nicer, I have been trying to play at least twice a week before work.

Best Glow Golf in Maryland!
Pros: Two tees with different looks makes the nine play like 18.
Great shot variation required, some tight holes that are very hard to par.
The skating pond was filled in late December, which doubles the water hazard on #9. There is an alternate tee where you take a stroke on this hole.
This course is open year around until 10PM! Get your Glow On!
Cons: Only 9 holes right now.
Thorns can be a bit of a pain, and there is some poison ivy.
When there is snow on the ground, 6 & 7 are not playable due to sledders using the hill.
Other Thoughts: Playing a forehand flick only round I put a led lit disc in the skating pond twice! The led made it easy to find, but it was still a very cold retreival.
This is the most difficult course of the three Frederick County Courses (See Heritage & Middletown)

A lot in a little
Pros: Two tee locations per hole.
Close to an 18-hole course (Heritage).
Open field for loosening up.
Cons: No tee pads.
No distance signage.
Other Thoughts: With only nine holes and a limited amount of space, this course offers a lot - changes in elevation. both hyzer and anhyzer shots, a couple of narrow shots, even a bit of water.
Average distance from the short tees is 250', 300' from the long tees. Four shots are uphill, four are flattish, and one is a major downhill.
Favourite hole: #8 - with a smattering of trees about 2/3rds of the way between you and the basket, you have several ways you might attack it.
There is room, and rumor has it, that this course may expand to 18 holes. When that happens, and if the tees/signage improve, this course would then be considered more challenging, interesting, i.e. would rate higher than Heritage or Middletown, but for now, it is a bit lower - although for a pure challenge, this course provides more than the aforementioned.

Looking forward to improvements
Pros: Diversity - each hole offers something different - uphill, downhill, tight woods, water hazards.
Big elevation changes.
Nice scenery from the top of the hill
Cons: Only 9 holes (though apparently will expand to 18 eventually).
The 2 woods holes could use some grooming.
Some very thorny OB areas.
Other Thoughts: Pretty good course, but I can imagine it being much better if redesigned as an 18-holer. Stay tuned....
Hole 7 is an awesome downhill bomb, but beware the thick thorns in the OB!
Hole 9 has a narrow fairway between a sludgy pond and a creek. You'll need power and/or precision to keep your disc dry.

Pros: Only 9 holes but each are very unique!
* Holes 2, 4, 6, and 7 have massive elevation changes.
* Hole 3 is a tunnel shot where you NEED a forehand flick or a roller to par. * 4 is a massive uphill tunnel shot with a low ceiling. Very difficult to 3 from the blue tee.
* 7 is the most fun with a super huge downhill shot.
* 9 has two very close water hazards
* Course is open till 10PM making it great for glow.
* This course is only 5 minutes away from the Heritage Farm Course in Walkersville.
Cons: * Only 9 holes right now, but course coordinator is currently working on approval for the other 9.
* Holes 8 and 9 get pretty swampy if it rains alot.
* LOTS of bugs and catapillars in the summer.
Other Thoughts: Safari holes:
* Tee from the bench by 9's basket across the skating pond to 8's basket.
* Tee off from the very top of the hill by the tree next to 6's basket to 9's basket. (awesome!).
