Pros: Surprisingly good distance
Good use of trees
Cons: Too many holes cross each other. I think this would be a course that would be well served by fewer holes, a lot like BridgePoint.
Play is dangerously close to the building and windows on 2 holes.
Other Thoughts: Distances on the tees would be nice
Baskets need double chains
"Next Tee" markers near the baskets would help the flow.

Finally Up to Par
Pros: Completely redesigned! Six holes, all with alternate tees, fits this course so much better. The A & B tees are clearly marked with painted posts, and distances have been added to each tee box as well. Baskets are now dug in and numbered. Two holes are heavily wooded, which adds a nice touch of difficulty. There are no more crossing fairways, and no more multiple use baskets and tees. Brand new course map now available online as well as printed copies up for grabs by tee box 1A.
Cons: Hole distances may be too short for some players, but with all the trees, I find this to be a challenging finesse course. Baskets are budget quality, but they get the job done. If it has rained recently, you might want to bring some mosquito spray. There have also been some reports of poison ivy in the wooded areas.
Other Thoughts: As one of the course designers, I have really tried to listen to the comments and reviews of MDGC, and I am proud to reintroduce the new and improved course. If you were dissatisfied with the old MDGC, please come back and give us another shot. And if you are a first timer... welcome!

Pros: This course is located on about 5 acres of lightly wooded lawn next to a church. Initially the church put in a pretty poorly thought out 9 hole course on the property but it has since been redesigned as a 6 hole course with alts. The new layout makes the most of the fairly limited space but is still mostly a pitch and putt course.
Stand out holes include #2 with the basket located in a cage of pine trees and #5 where you drive down a narrow tree lined path.
Cons: The amount of space is the main con for this course. The holes are all very short and tightly packed together. Hole #1 shoots blind around a church building and #6 could really use a bit more clearing out. The InStep baskets are a poor choice too; while they are acceptable as a back-yard practice basket they are not course material.
Other Thoughts: The new design is a vast improvement and the tee posts are great. The course would really benefit from better baskets and a bit more clearing out on #6. This course seems ideal for playing casual rounds of disc golf with people new to the sport.
