Pros: -The course is very diverse and offers every types of shot you could want short of over a body of water. It has uphills, downhills, wooded, wide open, just a great selection of holes.
-Multiple tee pads make this course beginner friendly if you're trying to get a friend into the game that hasn't played before.
-Multiple pin placements help keep the holes fresh. If I remember correctly every hole has 3 different pin positions and all of them are interesting for that particular hole.
-The park is very clean and well maintained. There are plenty of trash cans and this course even has a broom at every hole if the tee box is too dirty for you
-The course is well cleared out on it's wooded holes. This means clear lines that are manageable and take luck out of the equation. Also means less chances to lose a disc.
Cons: -Traffic can be very heavy at times. There have been multiple times where I've found myself waiting behind groups of people
Other Thoughts: I see this course hasn't gotten great ratings from everybody but to me this is exactly what I want in a disc golf course. The course has nearly every shot, other than directly over water, and is very friendly to both beginners in veterans. I wish I still lived in the area as I loved coming to this course and I strongly suggest anyone around to give it a try. Also, just around the corner from the park is Disc Stalker, which is a a disc golf pro shop, and they have a great selection of plastic so if you need anything new you can stop by there on your way to the course. Overall just a great setup in my opinion.

Just as pretty as she plays.

- This course is gorgeous, and well-maintained.
- A great mix of wooded holes, long, wide-open bomber holes, and traditional holes with a few trees out in the fairway.
- Great tee-pads, with brooms.
- Baskets can be a little confusing the first time you play out here, particularly around 3 & 4, and then again around 6 & 7.
- In certain positions, the baskets will be blind from the tee. While this is not a problem at all courses, Alexander's alternate tees on some of the blind holes make a dramatic difference in which route to take. Just be sure to take note of basket positions before heading into the deeper parts of the woods.
- Course can become extremely busy at times, and I've had to play behind 6-somes more than once.

Very Good Course
1 Helpful / 3 Not
Pros: I live in Athens, GA and am an intermediate player. I normally throw less than 350 feet. That being said, I love this course because most of the holes are in that range for par 3. Very well kept disc golf course. I really like the large teepads with brooms in almost all of them. A practice basket with distance info is a great plus. The wooded holes are open enough for my skill and my mid-range disc worked great. Some of the wooded holes are treacherous though. Playing from blue tee was a little bit challenging for me but I still like them because I birdied some holes and hit chains and rims several times in my birdie attempts. Overall great course for my skill level.
Cons: Not really. Driving distance from Athens.
Other Thoughts: People should visit this course at least twice to check their skill and power.

Pros: Well maintained course with some open and some wooded holes.
Cons: Not much distance, with the exception of a few holes. Also, the majority of the course it TOO open for my taste.
Other Thoughts: Best disc golf store in ATL less than one minute away!

Pros: Excellent mix of long/short open/wooded shots! Well maintained! Easy to navigate! The baskets are rotated to their alternate locations regularly! Benchs and brooms at most tee boxes. All concrete pads. Several fairways and tees have been receiving cosmetic cleanup/improvements this winter/spring. Awesome! Overall, it is a great looking course that will challenge lots of your techniques!
Cons: None really. A couple of holes could use a better "next tee" sign.
Other Thoughts: Definately looks and plays like a well maintained course. Great for all skill levels. Holes 10 and 16 in the long position are my favorite tee shots in all of metro Atlanta!

Beautiful Recreational Course
3 Helpful / 5 Not
Pros: This is a great course for recreational players, although advanced amateurs and pros might get bored with large number of open shots.
There are concrete tee boxes on every hole for both short and long tees. Brooms at most holes to sweep off the concrete. Benches near most tees. All holes clearly marked with distances and hole map. Course is well-manicured, mowed. The course is mostly wide open holes, with a few holes that either start or end in the wooded section. Wooded holes are partially cleared around baskets and tees. Nice elevation changes with both uphill and downhill shots. Baskets are numbered. Only one water hazard (hole #17) where you could lose a disc.
For me, the open holes give you a chance to warm up (holes 1-3), and then give you a break from some of the wooded holes, so I personally liked the mix of open and wooded. A couple of the wooded holes had some dense trees to shoot through, but nothing insurmountable, as the holes usually opened up after the tight squeeze.
Cons: There are lots of open holes. None of the holes were absurdly challenging.
Also, I was a little confused at hole #3 because it appears to aim at the hole #4 basket. So if it is your first time, print a course map.
Parking areas are a bit of a walking distance from tee #1, especially if you park at the main park entrance. (overflow parking is closest to the course hole #1)
Other Thoughts: As a recreational level player, this course was fun and non-intimidating. I very much enjoyed it. While this is an easier course, I rate it among my favorites because the landscape is beautiful with a combination of trees and rolling meadows.

My new favorite
1 Helpful / 9 Not
Pros: Well manicured fairways.
Brooms at most tee boxes.
Pin placement changes regularly.
Multiple tee boxes on almost every hole.
Good mix of field and forest.
Good mix of technical and power drives required.
Friendliest players I've run into on any course.
Cons: It isn't closer to home.
Never can seem to get a scorecard or map at the kiosk, not really a con but just want one to have.
Other Thoughts: I was blown away the first time I played at this course. I tell all my DG friends about this course and they have since played and agreed that this course is legit!

Straight and clean
4 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Course is set into a very nice park with walking trails, playground and ponds. Plenty of parking and amenities.
Practice basket on the way to hole 1.
18 holes with two tee pads for each one. All pads are large, flat, concrete. Nicely done. Signs at long pads show multiple pin positions and hole lengths and layouts. Plenty of benches and next tee signs also. Upkeep and appearance are all top notch.
Course is a mix of wide open holes and holes that play in and out of the woods. There are only a couple truly 100% wooded holes. There is nothing super challenging or dramatic here, just basic disc golf shots. There are a few smaller trees on some of the open holes that may grow into obstacles as they age.
Almost all baskets are visible from the pads. This would be a great course for newer players and practice sessions.
Cons: Almost every hole requires a straight shot. Not a lot of wrinkles in the fairways.
There is a few spots on the open holes where you can see multiple baskets from the tee pad. Make sure you are targeting the correct basket.
Mostly flat and straight shots. While there are woods, there aren't any challenging wooded fairways that force you to hit a line.
No memorable shots or holes.
Other Thoughts: Park in the overflow parking area. That is a gravel lot in the back of the park. Path to the right takes you to hole 1.
This is a very nice course that simply lacks creativity or challenging holes that would make it an excellent course. The pond isn't that much in play on 18 and there isn't enough elevation to truly impact your shots. So you're left with 18 holes of mostly flat, straight shots with some mature trees or wooded fairways to deal with. It is defintely a nice course for its upkeep, and ease of play, but it won't challenge really good players, and lacks any outstanding holes or features to push it into elite status. I'd say the actual play and course is probably a 3 disc rating, but the multiple pads and spotless upkeep push this course to a 3.5 in my mind. It is definitely worth a stop of your nearby. And would probably be a good course for kids and new players too.

Near-flawless family par 3 course
4 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Very family friendly, even stroller friendly
Attractive park that is clearly well maintained, excellent tee signs with a broom at every tee. Discatchers are in nice shape, benches at some of the tees. 2 tee pads and multiple pin locations. There are several ace runs, but they are not just 80 feet and open, these are ace runs with character.
Elevation in play on more than half of the holes.
Nice playground on site.
Great place to learn, introduce new people, and practice hitting lines.
Cons: Tough to find many cons. Hole 3 aims directly at 4's basket and is confusing.
16 and 17's fairway were parallel. My disc went into one fairway while his disc went into mine. Course is pretty short with an average of 237/305 feet per hole. Typical par 3 layout, because it is so nice and popular, it can get crowded.
Other Thoughts: Disc Stalker Pro shop just a block from the course!
Course is a near flawless family friendly course, but if you want isolation or more challenge, this is not the course for you.

Awesome course, gorgeous park.
Pros: - Course set in the perfect scenic park. Something for everyone with all sorts of family friendly amnenties for all ages. The wife and kids can easily be entertained while you sneak in a round at this course if they are not into disc golf as much.
- Course utilizes the land very well with a great balance of shots in the open as well as in the woods.
- Great job on the safety factor on most of the wooden holes. Despite having busy pedestrian paths flowing throughout the hilly wooded terrain, I cannot recall an instance where I felt as though anyone was in the way of any shot I needed to take.
- Excellent use of elevation and technical lines to throw, particularly when teeing off from the woods out to the open.
- Course appeared to be immaculately maintained. Brooms at every tee pad are a nice touch. Plenty of benches and the tee signs look good.
- Multiple pin placements is always a plus assuming they get moved around occassionally.
- Beginner friendly short pads are sure to get some of the regular park visitors attracted to disc golf.
- Navigation was easy and 9 & 18 both end in proximity to hole 1.
Cons: - Longer than usual walk from parking lot to 1st tee pad but the park is so nice it's hard to count that against the course.
- Time will take care of this on it's own, but if I have to think of another con it would be that some of the young trees in play on the open fairways need time to grow before they become a true strategical force to reckon with. It's still "grip 'n rip" on several of the open fairways without concern of foliage.
- signage is decent but the tee signs could use a way to show what basket position you are throwing to since many of them are blind from the tee.
Other Thoughts: - I really enjoyed the course. My family enjoyed the park while I was playing. I would absolutely love to play a tournament at this park/course. If I lived closer I would play here often without a doubt. Can't wait to return!
- out of towners, don't miss out on this one!
