Pros: The first nine holes were fine. The fairways were carved out well enough and they were relatively easy to navigate too. There is a bar right on the property with the course built around it. Drinks were cheap too.
Cons: My gosh, where to begin? The last 9 holes are impossible to find and aren't marked with any signage at all. I have a feeling that the course won't ever be "finished". And if it is finished then that is just sad because the back 9 was a mess. Be careful throwing over the large bodies of water too. My buddies lost some of their discs to the gross swampy waters. Pros may appreciate this course, but amateurs will not, so don't waste your time.
Other Thoughts: I will probably never go back to this course, because every other course I have been to puts this one to shame. I couldn't even keep track of my score because we were too concerned about finding the next hole. I hope this provides some info for people and I do feel somewhat bad for giving this course a poor rating because the first 9 holes were ok, but the rest was a disastor. Obviously time and money were spent on this course though and I do appreciate the effort!

Pros: Had some real challenging holes, I really enjoyed throwing over the pond, (the second time that is, the first shot went in the woods to the right, right before the river). This course when it is finished has some real potential. The bar right where it is can be very helpful.
Cons: Can be little confusing finding where you have to throw to. My advice is to walk the course first, was a lot easier finding our way the second time through. Bring bug spray you will see giant man eating mosquitos.

**UPDATE** I hear the course and the bar are both closed now. Its a real bummer because they were really on the verge of making something really nice.
Other Thoughts: I cant wait to play it when it is finished.....Well I finally played the finished course, and honestly I was disappointed. The first nine holes were great, marked well, easy to navigate, okay signage. But the last nine holes were difficult to find, little to no signage. There are a lot of holes that present plenty of difficulties throwing through trees. Oh there are also plenty of holes that have the hazard of losing a disc in the water. There aren't any pads to shoot from, and footing was difficult on a few holes.
