Decent short 9 for a hotel
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: 9 short holes with nice tee signs and discatcher baskets. Well designed with tees and baskets well placed for the most part near trees to provide a nice obstacle on an otherwise relatively short and easy course. Made good use of the little elevation available, and the course is well maintained. Course is one loop around and navigation is pretty easy. It's basically a disc only area of the hotel resort, so there shouldn't be much conflict with other people. Amenities galore on site here since it is a resort hotel.
Cons: Hole 9 plays a little too close to the parking lot. There is a good chance to lose a disc in the rough before the Choptank river, or the river itself. Course is really only designed for beginners and relatively short and easy.
Other Thoughts: The wind was whipping around quite a bit when I played which added a nice challenge to the mostly short, flat, open course. The tees are natural which isn't really a pro or con in my book, although it can make it hard to figure out which direction to the basket. I played tee 4 to basket 5 by accident, and it actually plays well either way. I doubt the course gets crowded so you can probably play any safari you want.
This is a great course to introduce people to the game, it's not going to impress most veterans although I appreciated some of the little nuances and details that went into the course. The resort itself is pretty nice with all kinds of activities. For anyone traveling through the area going to the beach, it's a decent stop to stretch out your legs/arms and won't take long to finish.
I'd also recommend to start on hole 7 like opti says and park by the condos near the restaurant all the way back down the road past the hotel. You will see the baskets past the tennis courts.

Resort gives nice exposure to sport
Pros: Nice view of bay, quality course maintenance, great tee signs, and very few issues with navigation and flow.
Cons: 5 of 9 holes are under 185 feet, no need to bring your bag out of your car, just a few mids and putters. No clear tee pads, you just stand on either side of the sign.
Hole 9 is kind of close to the parking lot, a light wind took one of my discs right out into the parking lot.
Other Thoughts: You drive past the immaculately landscaped golf course that has elevation, water fountains, and art work hoping this continues into the disc golf course, clearly ball golf is treated like the popular kid in town and disc golf is the dorky kid who plays with the cat poop in the sandbox, but kudos to the Hyatt for introducing disc golf to their guests and allowing on guest to play their course. I would play it again just for the numerous ace runs.
Hole 4 has a left dog leg, but it needs a mando to make people follow the intended flight path. Hole 7 is the only 300 ft. hole (301), but it is wide open.
I directly passed the course on the way to Shumaker pond without needed to veer from my path at all. It was a welcomed break from the long drive.
Locals say wind often affects this course drastically.
