Pros: Great technical course! This course offers a great mix of open and tight shots, elevation changes, hole distance, and placement shots. This is really what Disc Golf is about!!!

Multi pin placement, multi tee pads, Pins alternate on a monthly basis.
Cons: Ticks, Ticks, Ticks.

Course can get overgrown during summer months and eats discs if not kept in the fairways.

Can be hard to follow for the first time players, I would suggest contacting a member of the local club DORDA to get a course tour.
Other Thoughts: This is a must play for any disc golfer who thinks they are ready for pro level play!

Pros: Leigh Farm is a really fun course and the best in the area. I also play ball golf and Leigh Farm is much like real golf. You must manage the course. In the triangle area, I believe that Leigh Farm is first, UNC is a close second, Valley Springs is third, and Cedar Hills is fourth.

Directions on pdga.com were good and the signage is adequate for a new course. I have only played the advanced course and the white rocks to short baskets and gold tees to longs or gold pin placements. Some holes do not have longer tees so they must share with the white rock pads.

My favorite holes were 1,2,4,5, 6,7,8,9,11,12,13,14,15,17 because they are great holes. Holes 10, 16, and 18 are good but not great. Hole 3 is too easy for this calibre of a course.

Here are short descriptions of the great holes. (I am a righthanded thrower) Hole 1 is a great starting hole where I throw a putter from the tee and hopefully birdie with a good putt. Hole 2 is a tough par 4. From 2's tee, I forearm an Orc to the area just past the blue rec basket. With a good drive you will have a look at the basket. I use a putter or midrange and punch it between the trees. Hole 4 is an awesome Par5 hole. You must stay in control mentally or take a 6 or 9 on this hole.

Hole 5 is wide open and long with a few trees at the end. Hole 6. Right handed players without a flick shot will struggle unless they can throw a good turnover drive. Holes 7-9 are all really open holes on and around some huge manmade mounds. I believe they are building a pyramid on Hole 8.

The Par4 Hole 11's fairway is shaped like an L. You can drive a putter straight for 150 feet or try to forearm a shot and have it fade to the right. The fairway is tight so having a forearm and backhand is a plus.

Hole 12 seems like a Par 3 from the white tee and maybe a Par 4 from the gold tee on the mound. Hole 13 is similar in that it plays like a Par3 from the white pad and a Par4 from the long pad to long basket.

Hole 14 is awesome because the ditch comes into play as OB. Risk/reward is great. You can play it safe or try to go across the ditch. Hole 15 is tight but fair. I really like the gold tee to the gold basket placement. If I get a '3' then it feels like a birdie. Hole 17 plays around a barn and this hole is probably my favorite at Leigh Farm. Both basket locations are fun.
Cons: Tee signs would be good whenever they get time and money. However, I am more interested in getting a new great course. Hole 3 is too easy for this calibre of course.
Other Thoughts: I am glad I did not listen to the negative reviewers. Real men step up to the challenge of a tough course. Leigh Farm is the real deal.
