Pros: Great long, open drives from the tees. Tees are very nice brick tees. Most holes have two tees, however the second is usually natural marked by a wooden board. The most impressive aspect about the course is that it is very well kept. Even more grassy areas were removed since the last time we were there. Felt almost like playing on a real golf course. Tee signs are really nice and easy to read. Fairways are easy to spot, and for the most part, it is a very secluded course except for the first two holes. Simply put, it's a beatiful course to play and alot of fun.
Cons: Not many cons about the course. Some of the second tees can be a little hard to spot, and the course layout can get a little confusing at times, mainly between holes 11-14, but it's not that bad if you spot the paths between some of the tall grasses.
Other Thoughts: I have't been playing for very long, and I have only played about 10 courses, but this one is just so much fun and stands out so much to me for its well kept course and beatiful landscape. There's a good variety in the holes as they utilize elevation and very long, short, and medium distances. Not as many wooded holes, but there are a few. Overall and great course! Also got to mention hole number four, it is so epic as you throw from the tee, over a creek in between two huge trees! Just a lot of fun!

Pros: - Beautiful course that is well-maintained with excellent landscape.
- Great blend of open and lightly wooded holes.
- Par ratings are challenging, yet realistic, with several birdie opportunities for good tee shots.
- Course flows well and has excellent tee signs at each of the brick tee boxes.
- Very fun to play, an all-around great disc golf experience.
- Alternate basket positions for each hole; alternated each month by the local club.
Cons: - Brick tee pads can become slippery when wet, even just from morning or evening dew.
- Beware of the evergreens, they love to eat discs.
Other Thoughts: - Course will test your distance more so than your accuracy. However several holes on the back 9 still require moderate accuracy to stay out of the evergreens.

Really,really nice park, nice brick tees,fairly easy to find, just off 460 (About 45mins. from Roanoke), amazing vistas,multiple tee positions and basket positions, fairly good use of what trees are there.
a great community of players (www.Elkcreekdgc.info
Cons: The brick tees can be slick when wet, especially the ones by the creek (be careful) The open fairways don't make the course as technically and accuracy demanding as some player used to playing in the woods would prefer.
This is a great course really close to Bedford Va. right off of interstate 460.

Pros: Tee pads are beautiful, park maintained like a ball course, course layout keeps every hole flowing to the next, good for beginners and pros, multiple basket locations and pro tees.
Cons: Park is kind of hard to find-no signage until you get to park entrance.
Other Thoughts: I've only played a few courses but this one is by far the best layout and is maintained better than the others I played. The course is close to my home so I play here several times each week and still haven't gotten bored. Love this course!
