Handsome little 9 hole
Pros: Makes a great warm up course to play before venturing to West Thompson Lake, only 15-20 minutes away. Won't really need the driver here. Short and mostly flat through some scenic woods. Secluded, not crowded. Layout is easy to follow even without signage. Love the DISCatcher baskets, always easier to see that top yellow rim in the woods.
Cons: Fun if not especially challenging. Tee pads gravel, no signs. Looks like there could be room to expand if there was interest.
Other Thoughts: Great for beginners, as many have noted. A good time to warm up with some short, technical holes. The novice could get their first par here, intermediate players could drop below.

not a bad course
Pros: great little course.(9 holes).if you want to play a quick few rounds.
perfect for younger kids if you have them. easy and won't tire them out
Cons: hole #1 seemed to be missing the disc catcher (unless i'm blind) other 8 holes were fine.
Other Thoughts: west thompson lake dgc is about 15-20 minutes away..so it's great to hit both of them if your in the area.

Ace Race City
Pros: There is a welcome board with map and scorecards (there is also a DGCR flier!). The layout is very nice and impossible to get lost. The fairways are clean and allow more than one path to the basket. Trees are spray painted red/orange to help with paths to the basket and navigation between tees. The gravel tees are pretty level and flat. The size is also fine for the hole lengths. While there is no real challange the tightness may frustrate you a little bit. The possibility of losing a disc is almost zero. There are a ton of ace races and this is the perfect place to take the beginner. There are brand new discatchers installed (they are not locked down, so hopefully they wont have a problem with theft). There is also a porta pottie across the field by the baseball field.
Cons: The directions take you up a dead end street with no parking. There seems to be a small lot near the soccer field but I am not sure how to access it. There are no signs whatsoever (they really aren't needed though). The path to hole one is quite overgrown and Hard to find the opening. The tee pads are right next the previous basket and could be dangerous (though I doubt it). There are some low swampy areas that have no boards or rocks to walk on. No alcohol is permitted.
Other Thoughts: Numbers are spray painted on the tee boxes. Once you park walk across the fields to the kiosk. First tee is behind and to the left of it. A hiking trail crosses the course on a few holes.
