Pros: Big, big, big. If you're tired banging your drivers off trees, this is your course. Great elevation changes, several blind tee shots, and the school grounds are very well maintained.
#1 -Down two hills and across the parking lot...beauty. Aim for the light pole with a strong backhand and you'll end up close. Yes, I've hit the farm house.
#2 - Walk between the fence and the shed to find the tee box...if no one is parking on it.
#3 - The basket is protected by a small rise of trees. Left or right is fine; straight on is no man's land.
#4 - Big drive back across the gravel lot then a dogleg right to the basket. The fringe is brutal.
#5 - This is your chance to impress the field hockey players and baseball teams. The only hazard is the seasonal swamp from left to center.
#6 - Another big drive to an elevated basket. Try to avoid the joggers on the path along the hill.
#7 - Like most of the sheds by the tees, this one harbors an assortment of bees and wasps, so just give them room. Two big drives can get you close the basket that's nestled in the corner.
#8 - Aceable. Easier when the foliage is not so lush.
#9 - This is their homage to finesse. Head down the path to the right of #8 and the tee box is in the mud. Nice and tight throws. "House rules" say you can blast it out into the field if you're not into finesse, but only after your first shot.
#10 - Straight shot along the soccer field. Again, the fringe is brutal. A little drop off beyond the hole can make for a tough putt.
#11 - It's not that far, but the fenced-in track to your right can mess with your head. Especially if the gate is closed.
#12 - This is why you came (unless it's football season). Big fairway of 400 feet, track to your right, around the concession building, and there's the basket, perched up on top of the hill. If you overshoot and have to putt downhill, good luck.
#13 - My one and only ace hole. Up the hill and across the road. Watch for cross traffic.
#14 - Another blind tee shot, over a slight rise. No one has used the sand volleyball court in years, so it makes a nice landing spot.
#15 - Another favorite. The area around the tee box is usually pretty damp, but your first throw is a bottleneck between a hill and some residences, then it opens up to a vast field with the basket sitting in the middle of nowhere.
#16 - Most scenic tee shot. Long, across the bowl-shaped field towards the road, then through the tree line to the basket. Really nice view in the fall.
#17 - After #16, make a hard right and follow the road to the tee box. The basket is hidden over the hill to the right of the school. And once you're over the crest, it drops off so far to the left that a promising shot can easily bounce off the road or the brick wall.
#18 - Blind, straight up the hill, to the right of the tennis courts. Make sure to stop at the memorial for the beloved Mr. Bartol; the inscription on the plaque is "Did you fill anyone's basket today?" Almost like he's the patron saint of disc golf. Reflect for a moment, then go ahead and fill your own basket. You earned it.
Cons: This course puts the "multi" in multi-use. Most days are fine, but you'll have to skip several holes during the spring and fall sports seasons. The tee boxes are more for reference, not really usable for a run up. The foliage around the fringe of the course is very dense in the summer.
Other Thoughts: This is my hometown course, the one that got me into the sport. So despite its flaws, I'm still very fond of it. We're blessed to have some quality courses in this area (Quaker's Challenge, Boulder Woods, Creekside, and Coyote Hills), and this is a nice alternative if you're looking for something different.

Good course for distances
Pros: Nice, wide open areas. Several changes in elevation make it interesting on several of the holes, mainly baskets 1, 17 and 18. Each tee has the distance and par cut into it. Maps are located up at Tee 1.
Cons: Located on school grounds. Several of the baskets are located across roadways, meaning you have to throw across them. Tees are somewhat on the small side, roughly 3 foot by 3 foot. Scorecard and map are not the easiest to understand.
Other Thoughts: Overall, a nice course. Plenty of wide open spaces to try out your long distance drivers. Can become rather windy at times.
