Pros: This is a basic example of a disc golf course. While there is nothing particularly special or outstanding, it does have a few things going for it in the "pros" department. I guess what people will enjoy most are the abundant ace opportunities. Truly they are on every hole.
Amenity wise this course isn't necessarily terrible. To start, it has two very nice concrete tee pads per hole. The baskets are as good as new and it's worth noting that they have the little "next tee" arrow stickers too. Lastly, it also has nice tee signs with distances (even though they have arrows that don't point towards the basket for some unknown reason)
It's a good beginner course and/or a confidence builder. It's also convenient to other Chattanooga courses.
Cons: This is a very open course with not much distance so there is not much difficulty. Additionally there are not many obstacles to speak of so the course can get a little repetitive. Hole five's wide open shot adds some variety with its basket sitting two feet from the shore of a swamp but the water is practically stagnant.
While I'm talking about water, it's worth mentioning that with just a moderate amount of rain the ground was extraordinarily saturated on most of the course. Hole four in particular was all but unplayable with three to four inches of water that stretched from the short tee pad to the basket.
Other Thoughts: Quite honestly this course is not absolutely horrendous, just close to it. I actually had a little bit of fun. Just be aware of what it is before you go. As mentioned by other reviewers don't play alone, keep your eyes peeled and know what to expect before playing here. To sum it up, this is a recreational course in a bad neighborhood with a significant drainage problem. After all it's still a disc golf course. A park with baskets is always better than a park with no baskets. Come out, go for some aces and most importantly, Enjoy!

Bums, and beggers, and swamp land oh my!
Pros: Easy and short 9 hole course for beginners, multiple tees can be used to handicap mixed groups.
Cons: I'll be polite and list the location as "undesirable." Don't go alone, or near sundown, or for a week after it rains.
Other Thoughts: Drive about 10 minutes to Jack Mattox instead and you can actually relax while playing.
