SO much hope, so little reward
Pros: Good mix of open long holes and challenging wooded holes. Several holes near a pond that offer some good risk vs reward opportunity. Holes also placed near walkway for some good OB risk. A course that requires the use of all of your shots. Multiple tee locations for different skill levels. Good signs at tee pads.
Cons: Where to start?? Rubber tee pads over bumpy ground. This is a good place to twist an ankle or land on your arse. Many holes play around or near a walkway. You could kill a pedestrian or biker there on a good day. Watch out. Water, water, water. There is a pond that offers some decent risk, but there is also enough standing water and swamps to keep you damp all day. Hadn't rained in a while and there was still water everywhere. My impression is that this was a swamp that they turned into a disc golf course. There is also drainage culverts dumping water from the surrouning sports fields. My guess is that in Spring, Fall and Winter you need waders to play here. Maybe a nice dry summer would help. We played when about 1/3 of the fairways had 2-3 inches of standing water covering large portions of the fairways.
Other Thoughts: This course has a lot of promise. It has some cool holes that are fun to play. Concrete tee pads would easily allow me to give this course a 2.5 or 3. If they could ever drain some water away also this could turn into a fun place. I'm just not sure it will ever happen. If you're in Rocky Mount, and North Carolina has been in an extended drought by all means go play this course. If you play it when it's wet and warm I'd be on the lookout for some reptiles. This looks like it could hold some big *ss snakes!

third best course in RM
Pros: Two fun water holes, two sets of pads, a few fun technical holes, set in an awesome sports complex
Cons: The course is set in the water run off area of the park, not lefty friendly, in a marsh(hope you like snakes in the summer), the fence on 10-11 is to close to the holes. several pins are dangerously close to the next pads.
Other Thoughts: This is a course confused, the first several holes are short and technical in the woods from both pads. then the course just explodes into a course with big drives over a nice pond then a few holes later shrinks back to it's original short and technical layout. the holes just dont fit with the rest of the park.
