Pros: The top pro is the use of golf carts. It would be nearly impossible to walk this course otherwise (6+ miles on the cart paths alone). A driving range is placed between the club house and the first hole so everyone can get a proper warm up in. Multiple tees allow for different levels of play and can be used for handicapping for stroke play. Hidden tees for number 4 and 7 provide awe inspiring views and shots. Number 14 from the top has been listed as one of the best holes in the world. Baskets are strategically placed near sand trap OBs, creeks, cliffs, and other drop offs. A sheet with the distances from each set of tees is located at the clubhouse and can be used during each round.
Cons: Several holes mirror each other but that's the way it goes sometimes on a golf course. The established OBs are not listed on the score card and can vary with the group. Several sand traps are in bounds and others OB, which may be confusing for first timers out there. There is no practice basket currently. This seems minor but you have to putt on every hole like every other disc golf course so the lack of the practice basket isn't helpful to your short game.
Other Thoughts: The club house has discs for sale, a lost/found bin, a restaurant, and a friendly staff. Wind can be a factor on this course, especially the elevated tees (4, 7, 14). Course is open year round including when snow is on the ground (played there in that instance). Surroundings are quiet with few distractions. Worth checking out if you're a serious disc golfer. Have to call club house to schedule a tee time.

Pros: The employees respect disc golf and want to further the sport! Great for driving practice with a few hazards here and there (water and high rough).
Cons: Again, water and high rough... Very long for beginners but the way disc golf will be in about 5 years once the sport gets its due.... Ball golfers take too long.
Other Thoughts: Great course and scenery if you are patient. People are very nice and respectful. Watch discs that drift or even roll because the water and high rough will claim them! Owner talked of trying to get world championships there. I would love to watch the pros tear it up! A must play at least once to see if it is for you.
