Fun and quick
Pros: Located off Hwy 1, it is very easy to find and minutes from hotels in Fort Bragg and downtown.
*Very friendly and helpful locals
*Usually someone at the course, but the layout is easy to follow, with signs at each tee
*Fairways were mowed and extensive use means shrubs and grass were not an issue
*Can play the regular 9 holes in 20 minutes, so multiple rounds are easy
*Not much chance of losing a disc
*Very clean and scenic
*People were enjoying beverages et al.
Cons: There is a lot of space and the holes could be expanded and added to, making this a 12 or 18 hole course. Tees are dirt with lots of hard, small rocks that act like ball bearings, but plenty of space to tee off to the side.
I would have scored it higher but most of the holes are short. I shot 7 of 9 birdies at one point, but usually 4 or 5. So the challenge is to try to park every hole. They can all be birdied.
Other Thoughts: Some very nice locals (Jeremy, Chris and Chris, Matthew et al.) showed my the Ice Bowl layout, which uses tone poles. These are white PVC and sprinkled throughout the course, and some holes are very fun.
Although I usually saw another player at the course, I think you could play the regular 9 then go safari for another 9 holes. Lots of potential.

A work in progress.
Pros: Its a new course and in the growing sport of disc golf that is good. A real nice mix of shots. Each one very different from the last. There are signs for the tee pads and the flow of the course is just as a disc golf course should be. After you finish a hole the next tee is within sight. During the week you can use the college restrooms. Plenty of beautiful views. Dogs are welcomed, which could be a con in some peoples eyes. There is no charge to play or park.
Cons: The grass was holding this course back from a better score. Now it is really knocked back.. Of course just having 9 holes is a con. Natural tees have been packed with gravel so it is better than mud. Not too many cons come to mind... Oh some trash in the brush on # 5 and it is kinda gross, lots better than it used to be, but still bad.
Other Thoughts: I am super excited to watch this course grow into a great 18 hole disc golf course. There is a lot of work ahead, and also a lot of possibilities. Come out and enjoy.
