Pros: Very good distance, not too challenging (a couple holes are a little bit difficult, not too shabby though).
Great for players on an intermediate skill level. Hole 1 is a good opener. I hit the basket on the first shot, finished up the course with a 1 over.
Cons: Holes a little too close together.

Pros: Beautiful landscape
Scenic setting
Easy to play
Mostly open shots to basket
Plenty of ace-runs
Fun to play
Cons: 2-step concrete pads
Several baskets on edge of parking lot
Short holes
Other Thoughts: I was traveling and running out of light so I dashed to this course. Thanks to 3OrangeWhips who gave me directions while missing the Colts/Jets game. After reading other posts, I see this is NC's first course - so playing on a historic course adds to the enjoyment.

Pros: Open course for learning the basics but still fun for intermediate players to run at the chains. Family friendly environment.

Variety of players from kids to senior citizen; family groups to advanced players.

Scorecard / map available at teepad #1 but map is not needed - above average signage allows for easy navigation.
Cons: Short course.
Other Thoughts: Course well maintained - restrooms and amenities for the whole family. Dogwalking park across the street.

Pros: Beautiful course in Rural Hall/Winston-Salem area. The park is smaller than most but offers a refreshing view of Sauratown and Pilot Mountain. The course has some short holes but to get through trees in the middle, you need to be accurate. A lot of ace run opportunities. Fairly easy to navigate and a good course for family play or leisure play. They also provide scorecards. A bit more challenging on some windy days, but still easy to shoot way under par. Course is maintained better than some courses I've seen and offer trash cans at various holes on the course.
Cons: Some of the baskets have some missing links which separated that whole section from the pole. Someone who puts a little too much juice on the drive have a good chance at denting up someones car. Very short tee pads are not nice to the long legged disc golfer. The intimidating trees lining the right side of the biggest hole of the course from what I was told by locals, was removed due to complaints of poison oak.

EDIT: Since this write up, Horizons Park has been outfitted with brand new baskets that catch much better. Trees lining hole 12 have also been cleared out due to poison oak.
Other Thoughts: One of the oldest courses in North Carolina being built in 1981(I believe). Barn comes into play on hole 14. The service Road on the back nine play as O.B.
