Pros: This is a short 9 hole course that could be fun. There are lots of chances for aces on this course. It had small concrete tees and Innova Discatcher baskets. There was signage, but it was just the number, length, and par. For the most part, that was all that was needed. The first hole was 110 ft and straight in front of the tee. Hole #2 was a little longer at 155 ft. Hole # 4 was a downhill throw underneath a power line tower. There was a large creek that feed into a pond behind the basket, but should not come into play. The 7th basket is 127ft and slightly to the left, but you must have an accurate shot. Hole #8 is an uphill tunnel to an open green 254ft away. The last hole is a 370ft open shot.
Cons: This course is not challenging enough for an advanced player. Only three holes were over 250ft and the rest were under 200ft. Amateurs or novice players can find a lot of trouble if they are not careful. The penalty for errant shots is painful and may not be worth retrieval of plastic.Hole #3 was the longest hole on the course at 427ft. At a distance where your drive should land there was a large waste area to the left with very tall grass that could easily swallow your disc. If you manage to make it clear of the area, then you'll need to navigate the green which is located in the middle of another horseshoe shaped area of tall grass.The basket directly in front of the tee for Hole #6 is for #8. The basket for #6 is tucked into the tree line and needs a small anhyzer shot to approach.Hole #7 has thick, prickly brush to the right and a large drop off behind the basket. Lots of trouble for inaccurate shots.
Other Thoughts: I can see how the local players can have a blast at this course, but travelling players can find more challenges just around the corner.

Pros: Fun 9 hole course. Each hole is unique, some with very interesting basket placements.
Plenty of chances for 2s and aces. You'd really have to throw a bad shot to get anything worse than 3 on the 6 holes shorter than 200 ft.
- Good course to introduce newbies to the game. Short holes and open pin placements should entice even the first time throwers.
- Has high risk/reward holes. If you throw straight, birdies are in order. Wayward shots will get penalized in THICK underbrush, including prickers.
- #3, 8 & 9 are good, challenging holes that'd fit in on any course. It takes a couple good throws on each one to get par. You have to throw straight on #3 to keep your disc going to the rough/briars to the left. #8 presents a challenge throwing through an uphill opening in the woods.
Cons: Course is really short. 6 holes under 200 feet. #1 & #5 especially need to be longer and more challenging.
- #1 doesn't belong on any course. Wide open, straight 110 foot shot. I guess they want everyone to start their round with a birdie.
- Rough is thick, unforgiving and too close to holes. The rough is essentially solid briar patches. If your disc goes in there on many holes, prepare to get scratched up or say good-bye to the disc. Rough/briars less than 20 feet from the basket on several holes, notably #4, 6 & 7. I've seen guys on the course using a machete to clear away underbrush, searching for a disc.
Other Thoughts: Great variety of holes. #4 is a cool view from the teepad with the basket underneath a large power line tower. #7 is a short downhill shot with anything going right or long in deep trouble. Great birdie chance, but also bogey risk.
- It's a good, entertaining 9 hole course. Can play through twice in no time. If they make #1 and #5 longer and more challenging, the course would be even better.
-It's the typical 9-hole course, aimed more for the casual player. You're not going to be challenged, but should enjoy it nonetheless. Not worth driving to if you live far away, but worth playing if in the area.
