Pros: Interesting layout of holes. First hole you throw your disc following a ditch all the way down to the basket sitting to the left of the ditch. Not a very long course... only 2 holes I remember that were of great length. The last 3 holes are really fun to play and you can tell those are the holes they have worked on the most. The last 3 holes are in a small wooded area.
Cons: Windy. The wind is pretty constant. On a good day it doesn't affect the discs too much. Hole 5 has a chance for you to throw your disc into the interstate or the water. They are currently digging on the course... for what, I don't know, but it makes it difficult, muddy terrain.
Other Thoughts: Another one of those courses you should at least try out if you feel like trying something new. Really fun with a group of people.

Pros: Its a beginner course that allows scores for beginners
Very little rough to lose a disc in
A family friendly course
Fast playing course (9 holes takes 30 minutes or less)
Cons: Beginners (gankers like me) must wait to shoot for walkers to pass by for fear of hitting them
1/4+ mile walk from after hours parking (regular parking open M-F 'til 5pm)
Borders the interstate.
Other Thoughts: The course is in the North end of the park and is the furthest point from parking. However, the trail to the course is a paved walking track so it's easy to find. The first tee just South of the Northmost building along the trail. It has a short cinderblock wall at the end of the teepad.

For the most part, this course is very open (except for holes seven, eight, and nine). I find this helpful for developing my driving distance.

Holes two and five favor lefties somewhat because of our natural right turns on backhands. The most technical hole for both (LHs and RHs) is hole eight. It is a ~180' with a bowl in the middle. Down the center line are two small trees with about 20' canopies. These will force you to go low into the bowl, but you can par or birdie this one if you don't have to double put.

The course takes about twenty to thirty minutes to play a nine hole round because of the close proximity of the holes to one another.

I really do appreciate all the work that went into this course from the Jack Mattox center as well as the Chattanooga Flying Disc club and other locals. This course is really going to improve my game.
