Pros: Longest hole is 350 feet. Has a bunch of short holes.
There is some use of elevation.
Course is well marked and it was easy to find my way around.
Cons: This course is very open with trees in play only on hole 4.
Hole 9 was overgrown with weeds.
No trash cans or benches.
Grass tee pads.
Lots of red clay.
Some of the rough was very over grown. Took me a while to find a disc thrown into four feet talk weeds.
Other Thoughts: I liked hole 8 the most. I threw on hole nine and from the hole 8 tee. I thought the distance was off. Turn out 8 is hidden do to a drop in elevation.
Saluda Trail Middle School course is right around the corner.

Pros: First and foremost this is an EDGE program course, which means great exposure to disc golf to students, and that's a great thing.
There were no really long holes, with only one being over 300 feet at 350, and two others between 275 and 300, so every hole could be an ace run.
The course makes decent use of the land, with good use of elevation as it plays around the baseball and softball fields. Hole 4 was probably my favorite hole as it's the only one with any trees in play.
Navigation is mostly straight forward, with a decent walk between holes 5 and 6, which is well marked with next tee signs on the outside of the fence of the baseball field, with the tee being at the left field corner of the field. Also hole 10's tee wasn't initially obvious for me to locate, but it's along the fence of the softball field.
There is another course located at Saluda Trails Middle School, which is very close
Cons: The biggest con here is the relative ease and simplicity of the course. There's not much to challenge a decent player here. It's short and open. Bring lots of sunscreen.
The baskets weren't in the best shape when I was there, with many seeming to be missing the inner set of chains, and some were getting a bit rusty. They may be in the middle of being replaced, as I'm aware that there was an issue with some of the chain supply at Innova recently, which they are replacing rusted chains on DISCatcher Pros. One of the baskets had weeds growing up through the bottom, and the tee for hole 7 was almost overgrown
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't call this a destination course, but it's worth playing if your in the area and need a fix, or if you want to up your courses played total, especially when combined with the nearby Saluda Trail Middle School course.
There are no trashcans on the course. There were also no benches around, which aren't really needed, and the tee signs simply had hole numbers and distances, which is all they really needed. The nearest store for water/snacks is about a mile up the road, and there are no restrooms available on the course. I did try the water fountain near basket #11, and it was not working, but it was probably cut off for the summer. Depending on when you're there, you may be able to access water/restroom facilities inside the school..
And lastly, when school is in, the course is closed to the public.
