Pros: Great use of elevation and topography. Easy to find your way around course. Great signage. Challenging and fun.
Cons: The day I was there someone was having a factory picnic. On a normal day this would be lots of fun!
Other Thoughts: Great for a break in the day.

Pros: First of all, I really enjoyed playing this course. For a 9 hole course packed into a small area it was a lot of fun. My family and I stopped to play to break up a long drive and we all enjoyed the course, both on the way north and on the way back south. The practice basket was clearly visible from the parking area and from there you could easily see the first tee. It was easy to find each subesquent tee as they all have signs and nice large tee pads.The terrain was significant and gave even the short holes some extra character and challenge.
Cons: The last 4 holes were in conflict with picnic tables.Some of them brought the flight of the disc pretty much directly over the tables. There were also 3 holes where you could throw into the back yards of the houses that border the park. Hole 4 was kind of crammed in between holes 3 and 5, but that was kind of minor for a course like this.
Other Thoughts: I am still cringing some about the holes that play near the picnic areas. Even though the course is really fun to play, this design is setting up some real conflict, People will probably get hit in and around the picnic areas and the neighbors will probably get tired of disc golfers retrieving discs from their yards. It seems like perhaps the course should have been shorter and a true beginner 9 holer would have fit the park better.

Pros: New Innova Discatchchers. (From here on east; you'll probably find nothing but yellow chastity belts...)
Perfect concrete...long...broomed tees.
We had played four very wooded courses in a row; and was nice to toss a huge hyzer in the open on #1. (Overall there is a nice mix up of shots needed).
Good signs with correct footage.
Though the course is short overall; and most holes average @250 ft.; a number of these are uphill (thus, playing more like 280+).
Design uses trees and elevation available to make the holes a fun experience.
Miller Park is kind of strange, in that you play near a number of private yards. However, our four person crew did not find ourselves on any private land the entire round; and, our conclusion is that the design was done very well to maximize the usage of the land; without really bringing these residences into play.
Course right off the highway for a nice stretch of the legs when traveling.
2 port-o-johns on course.
Cons: Length of course pretty short.
Sliding board and tire climbing apparatus definitely in play on one hole.
Course next to highway (also listed as a pro).
Other Thoughts: From Miller; we were headed east into hill country. This course marked the beginning of this style of terrain. A fairly strong 2 rating; but nothing all that special. Nice stretch of the legs.
Corbin is the home of Col. Sanders first chicken restaurant; and thus, also the home of the KFC museum. (Keep and eye out for midnightbiker and the guy from the van down by the river, making a road trip! Midnight loves his KFC).
Cumberland Falls (State Resort Park) is also home of North America's only moonbow beam; and the falls are described as the little Niagara. Rainbow seen during the day. 68 foot drop in the falls....

Pros:
Brand new high quality baskets, concrete tees, and tee signs. Practice basket.
Cons:
Holes 3-5 play near exercise stations/play area. Overthrow downhill #6 and find a fenced lawn with "no trespassing" and "beware dog" signs. #8 has you throwing over picnic tables to blind basket in boggy land, and #9 basket is near car parking for close pavilion access.
Other Thoughts:
Course plays up, across and down the back hillside of a small park. Most holes are of similar length (~250'), fairly straight, and have a few large trees to avoid - the elevation changes (up, down, flat, across, up-n-over) are the primary factor that changes between holes. Was certainly fun to play, but if other park patrons are using the exercise/play/pavilion areas, play could come to a near standstill - or lots of arm-waving and shouts of "fore!"
