Pros: Really a great course. Many tight wooded fairways with a variety of shots required. Many holes have two or more possible lines, some with higher risk/reward which makes the course very fun to play. Many of the holes require very tight technical shots in order to have an opportunity for par, which is great for more experienced players to work on hitting their lines. The elevation changes here also serve as an added challenge for the course. Navigation and course flow was also a huge plus. My group was easily able to find the next tee box even though it was our first time playing the course.
Cons: Navigation was great with the exception of the first hole. The tee sign was a little misleading and there were three baskets that could have been hole one's none of which were labeled. While playing we also ran into two snakes, neither were poisonous, but still worth noting. Also, there were one or two holes that were just a little too tight in their fairways.
Other Thoughts: Overall I really enjoyed this course. Looking at the reviews for the West and the East I got the impression that the East was the much better side, but I actually didn't think so playing through the West side. I think both are great courses and the West has a few more open holes without losing any of the difficulty of navigating tight fairways. Meeman-Shelby is my personal favorite disc golf location in Memphis, and I highly suggest playing both sides if you have the time.

Pros: Very challenging and fun. Superb signs. Nice tees and decent baskets. Good course flow and design. Decent variety. Nice restrooms. Plenty of trash cans and benches. Multiple pin locations.
Cons: Mainly wooded, not many open holes. Less challenge than the east.
Other Thoughts: It's a nice course that's heavily wooded. The west side does have a few more open holes which are a good break. It also has a few more ace runs. Even though it's very wooded, there is still lots of variety within the woods. There is lots of elevation, blind baskets, bends to the right, bends to the left, etc. Find the pavilion and there will be a very intricate, large course map. Plan to play both courses.
