I just can't give it zero discs... the poles are painted!!
Aesthetic-- plays through a lawn area of a camp ground on school section lake. there will always be a potential to intersect with non-dg'ers here. be careful.
Flow-- relatively easy to follow the poles with the map provided on here. I didn't ever find #6 pole near the bathrooms.. I threw from the concrete around the bathroom.
Everything else-- this course is dangerous but a good way to introduce a newb to the sport in a very non-threatening way with potentially familiar discs. the course is pancake flat and really challengeless. I mean, the throws are all <300'. I brought one discs (dx gator) and threw fine. it was mid-november when I was there so it was windy and cold but I'm sure every day is different. the areas you throw from are flat and not rutted . This is an easy course but yeah, pitch and putt all the way.

Pros: This course is a series of numbered poles with targets painted on them looping around a multi-use play area in a campground. There are no tees; you throw from the last target to the next target. All of the shots are very short, and it's obviously intended to be played with a standard Frisbee.
Cons: The area the course is set up in has picnic areas, camp sites, ball fields and a playground that you throw at while you play. Even using a standard Frisbee I would imagine people would throw toward other people and cars a lot, which does not seem like a great idea. The campground/beach costs $6 for a daily pass, so anyone who went there specifically to play the so-called "disc golf" course would leave feeling ripped off...especially considering that Flip City is about 40 miles away.
Other Thoughts: Personally I don't see why this would be listed as a "disc golf" course, because I don't think it is. It's more of a beach game than a disc golf course. Listing it here is a bit like listing a putt-putt golf course along with area ball golf courses.

We Didn't Even Get Out of the Car!
Cons: This is a single pole hole course without marked tee areas; instead, you tee off at the pole you just holed out on. The course is so short and open that 8 of the 9 poles were in view without even getting out of the car. No markings were in sight other than the hole # at the top of each pole hole.
This course has you throwing through the playground, very close to both baseball diamonds, over or toward the main park roads at least 8 times, and toward camp sites several times. Given this course layout and the number of kids playing in the area, we chose not to even risk playing as any errant shots were likely to cause serious injury to someone or something.
Other Thoughts: Even if you were already camping here and just looking for something to do, I feel the course design is so poor and dangerous I wouldn't attempt to play with anything other than a standard Frisbee.
