Sedgley on Steroids
Pros: As a fan of Sedgley Woods, this course goes it one better with tighter fairways, bigger elevation and some breathtaking holes. #10 is an instant favorite of mine: Water tower OB on left, blind drive over a 10-foot hump into a gully where the protected basket lies. 18 goes straight downhill under the power lines with a few thorn bushes protecting the fairway, and it's a long way down to the tucked-in basket. Red alternate tees provide variety, not just length, often attacking the hole from a completely different angle. Practice basket right by the road.
Cons: Not much length for the pros. Never found the red tee on hole 9. A few holes, like red #2 and all of #3, didn't seem to have a fairway. Very rocky and unkempt.
Other Thoughts: You're never too far from the car, which can be comforting on this rocky terrain. More gnats than I've ever seen in my life...bring spray. Would be a great winter course I'm sure, with fewer leaves to get in the way, less growth (meaning more fairway) and fewer bugs!

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 concrete tees (red and white layouts). Good mix of left and right turning holes with elevation on nearly every hole. Mostly short, well wooded holes with some defined fairways. Good drives will yield lots of birdie runs. New signs point the way to the next tee box, and new flags are stationed above the baskets for visibility. Not overwhelming for beginners, and still challenging for those looking to score well. White tees have been repainted and stand out well.
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. In the fall, leaves can pile up, so watch your throws, and watch your footing early in the morning for icy or slippery spots this time of year (obviously not a problem when it's warm).
Other Thoughts: With the improvements lately, I felt compelled to update this review, and the LVDC here did a great job. The new signs are well done and excellent. 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.
