 Bring your old plastic and a spare set of ankles

Pros: Beautiful views and lots of elevation. Tight and very wooded. The friendly people who play here.
Cons: Rock outcroppings on first 5 or 6 holes. Awful tee pads. Poor signage makes it hard to find the next hole.
Other Thoughts: Make sure to bring old plastic to this course. No matter what plastic you bring, it will not be the same after the front 9. Each time your disc hits the rocks, I mean the ground, you've got a new scuff or gouge in your disc. If you've got new plastic you're trying to make unstable, this is the definitely the course to bring it to.

It's not a bad idea to bring a spare set of ankles either as your ankles will be tested the whole round.

Pros: 18 holes with dual tees on many, if not all holes, and rotating pin locations on many. Well wooded but decent fairways utilizing every shot possible. Many fairway misses are easily forgiveable (unless you go right on 3, etc.). Baskets are in great shape. First half holes mostly uphill, second half mostly downhill. Signature 14th is a 350 foot shot that you must keep under the powerline, and although the fairway is wide here, missing it probably means nothing more than a punch-out back to the fairway, depending on time of year. Well maintained. Picnic area with water fountain by hole 6, and practice basket as well. Concrete tees on white tees. Mando on 5 and new pin postion for 6 strengthen the course.
Cons: Summer bugs as per usual for LV courses. The first five holes have a lot more rocks than the rest of the course, so watch your step. Along with the changes to 5 and 6 came changes to probably the best hole on the course, 11. This new position eliminates ace runs and for me, anyway, totally ruined the course. The new pin position on 15 makes par next to impossible for an RHBH.
Other Thoughts: With the improvements lately, I felt compelled to update this review, and the local DG club here did a great job. There are also great tourneys here year round, doubles every Friday evening, and helpful locals. While some of the changes are nice and definitely add to the challenges, some things were better off the way they were for the longest time.
