Pros:
Flush-to-ground concrete teepads. Half the holes have a second teepad, adding an average length of ~130' to these holes. Teesigns at every teepad.

Other than isthmus-hole #3, and thick brush/water on left side of short number-4, minimal chance to lose a disc, and when combined with an average length of ~290' from the short tees, makes this a course suitable for those early in their disc golf career.

Easy course to find, and with the online map, navigate.
Cons:
Teepads are small - 3'x6'.

Most holes are quite open, with a few scattered, large hardwoods near some of the baskets. Most holes are quite flat, with about a third having some minor elevation change.

Access - unless you can get onto the base, you can't play it. Walking path somewhat near some of the middle holes.
Other Thoughts:
Hole-3 is quite interesting. Although only 230' away from the tee, the baskets sits in the middle of a ~60' circumference circle of land, surrounded by a narrow band of thick-but-short brush, which is backed by lilypad-laden water. A 15'-wide path connects this circle to the land on either side. So, how good are you at sticking your disc in the landing circle from 230' away? That's what you'll need to do to not find the water - or hope the brush stops you if you're a bit long. A bit short? Well, unless you're disc skips off the front water like a stone, you're not making it.

The other holes are pretty much check the distance, account for the elevation, choose the appropriate disc, and throw straight - needing to avoid a tree late on about half the holes.

If you like them open, mostly flat, and having multiple opportunities for ace runs and/or birdys, give it a go!
