Pros: Located in one of the coolest resorts in the middle of nowhere. Nemacolin Woodlands has pretty much anything you can think of as a recreation activity (mini golf, arcade, Hummer course, skeet shooting, polo, and a billion other things).

This course is built on a ski slope so there is a lot of elevation change incorporated into the course.

Brand new baskets.

Map available as well as disc rental in the adventure center.
Cons: The rough on this course is deep, nasty, disc eating rough and unfortunately even on the fairways the grass is long enough to cause some disc hunts for perfectly thrown discs.

Quite a few of the holes are too long for a beginners course but offer very little challenge for experienced players.

Tees are natural and not particularly level or taken care of. It appears that they just plunked markers down wherever they felt like.

A very unispired course design (see my other thoughts) with all but two holes being pretty wide open and in my opinion only one decent pin position out of the 9 holes (#7 I think. On a hillside).

The attendant in the Adventure Center told us that this course is only free to people who provide their own discs which makes no sense at all. Why would you charge the people that are already paying to rent discs but not the other players? Seems like that is kind of backwards.
Other Thoughts: Nemacolin, whose motto should be "money is no object" hired the best course designer in the region to design a course for them then immediately disregarded what was given to them and had a staff member who had only played Disc Golf a couple of times drop in a course. I am massively disappointed in the outcome.
Nemacolin usually goes over the top to have the best of everything but in this case came up way short. Even though my in-laws live about 10 minutes from this course and I visit them often I have never been back.

If you are driving up Rt. 40 and need a place to play I would go for Red Neck DGC instead of this course.
