Pros: * Nice 9 hole course
* plays quick in under an hour
* Course layout sighn at begining
* Tee sighns at all of the tees
* concrete tee pads
* wide varity of shots (hysers, anhyser and 2 holes that are loger strait shots
* Course flows nicely
* Bathrooms at begining and water. (May not be unlocked if baseball is not playing they where playing when we where there and they where unlocked.
* Consesion Stand during baseball games.
* Great course for beginers and Amiture players
*
Cons: * Couse sighn is a little confusing.
* Basket #4 is missing ( It looks like it may have been taken but we threw 7 in its place.)
Course looks like it may become very over grown
* Hole 1 you are throwing beside the Baseball Field so you need to watch for fans if there is a game.
* Hole 9 you are throwing at the Baseball field and an over throw could land in the field of play
* there is a little bit of a walk from 9 to your car ( Would be nice if they could raise some money to put in two more holes so you end near the start.)
Other Thoughts: We had fun playing this course it has its own challanges but is still a faily easy course with a lot of birdie shots.

Pros: This course isn't just totally straight shots. The first hole there is a tree that makes it difficult to ace. On the second hole the distance can be decieving because of the way the hill is layed out. on holes 4, 5, and 7 there are some dense trees you must navigate through.
Cons: Holes 1, 4,5,6, 7 are moderately short and are almost definite birdies if the trees are avoided. It is easy to lose your disc if you throw it off of the "fairway" when the course hasn't been kept up for awhile. Not too difficult. Short, and no "excitement" factor.
Other Thoughts: I live near this course and I play it often when I get bored. It is a good course for beginners and can be fun for more advanced players because of the birdies that are possible.

Pros: First off, there is some sand on the second hole with a hill to go up that has sand on it. However, I would not let the name fool you into thinking you will be playing in real dunes. There is couple of open holes and some in the woods. There are a couple of fun little birdie shots here. There are cement tee pads and simple tee signs. Navigation was fairly simple and the holes were somewhat inventive.
Cons: This course goes around a fenced in baseball field and near a dumpsite for grass trimming and such. So especially on #9, you have to be careful of losing your drive in the ball field. Not a place to play if there has been a big rain. No bathrooms on the course or trashcans available.
Other Thoughts: The fun factor here was fair. Having a birdie run on almost every hole was a bit repetitive but the shots needed were different. When it is all said and done with the land they had to use, I felt it was a smart layout. It is just a real short 9 holes and unless you live near by, it is probably not worth the trip.
