Pros: This course is an excellent warmup for the two tougher courses onsite, and is perfect for introducing newer players to the sport. The lengths are short, so beginners won't be too frustrated. The lines are technical, but not terribly punitive. You have to hit your lines but it's not a miserable experience for an inaccurate player who misses the fairways. There is a nice mix of left, right and straight shots to test different lines.

The course is maintained perfectly for the intended audience. The fairways are leveled and smooth, and there isn't much rough or dead sticks. That makes it accessible for families with strollers. The concrete tees are in nice shape. The hole markers are basic, but there are arrows on trees pointing the way to the basket and then to the next tee. The onsite pro shop is well stocked with discs, accessories and snacks, and there's a great warmup area with putting baskets and a driving net.
Cons: There are some safety issues with fairways near one another and some places where players walk along the fairway on the way to the next tee. These issues are worse when the majority of the players are newer and don't always know where their disc is going to end up. Obviously this course doesn't have a whole lot of challenge, and doesn't have a whole lot of replay value for better players.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will have a great time here, the holes are reasonable lengths with interesting but fair lines. I saw a lot of kids with families out playing and having a great time on this course, I love seeing a course that really caters to the people who can be the future of the sport. Experienced players will enjoy a putter round here to warm up, but won't find a lot of challenge.

This complex is a great example of pay to play working. The local community has embraced the sport, and the owners clearly use a good amount of the proceeds to keep the place in beautiful shape. The three different levels of courses make this a great stop for any level of player.
