This one is for the kids.
Pros: This little course is perfect for the elementary aged kids that it is obviously intended for. The short, open holes follow the perimeter of a play field on the front four and then number five leads you around to the back of the school. Its fairway was the most fun on the course in my view. It was one of the longest as well. A slight dogleg left along a steep bank with thick woods to the right. Numbers six through nine are short and weave through playground equipment and propane tanks with number eight being wide open on the back of the field.
Nice tee signs with distances included. The tee pads are natural and have no excessive wear at all. The Innova baskets are in great shape. This course is easy to navigate.
I played while traveling through and had my wife and kids with me and it was great to play a course where they were able to enjoy themselves by reaching the baskets easily. They even picked up a few birdies. This is definitely a must play if you have young kids to bring along who get a little bored on the longer courses. After all, it's made for them.
It's only ten minutes off I-24 so it's a quick stop if you are passing through the area
Cons: For experienced players, this course is way too open and short. I don't imagine it is playable during school hours unless you are a student. There are no bathrooms available. The last thing you'll want to do is expose yourself anywhere near a school. I don't remember passing any gas stations once you leave the interstate area so be prepared for that.
Other Thoughts: I wish more schools would include disc golf in their physical education department. This course will most certainly be catching the attention of a few young players who will go on to be great players as they get older.
Based on what the course is intended to be, for children, I'd rate it a four out of five. For the purposes of the DGCR site I'll have to rate it for the experienced adult players who are the main users of the site.

Best School Ever!
Pros: This is a 9 hole course. There are basic tee signs and natural tees. Nice baskets. Decent layout, mostly open. Variety of obstacles would include a couple of trees, some rough, a ditch, a hill, a playground, soccer goal, volleyball net pole, monkey bars and propane tanks!! (Some of these may get moved from time to time, but other equipment may become a factor, who knows, it is an active school yard!)
There are 2 distances on each sign and 2 possible basket locations.
Overall the course is pretty easy and short, with many birdie and ace opportunities.
Cons: No specified tee area, you just pick a spot near the tee sign. Signs are kind of small, but once you find #1 you will have no problems.
I played on a holiday when nobody was around, but I would assume on days when school was in session the general public could not play this course.
#1 does play across the parking lot, but again if you go on a day with no school it shouldn't be a problem.
Other Thoughts: I wished I had a disc golf at my school when I was a kid!!!
#1-5 are longer holes around playground area
#6-9 are much shorter in back of the school
#1 tee is near the front of the school
#2- look out for the soccer net
#3- to the back corner
#4- longest hole along tree line play
#5- baack across ditch toward #1 and plays around the hill behind the school
#6- short with basket on hill
#7- make the monkeybars a mando for a real challenge!
#8- short towards trees
#9- uphill towards propane tanks
This course is also very close to a trailhead of the Fiery Gizzard Trail, part of the South Cumberland Recreation Area if you want to go hiking after you play!
