Decent, Quick Course
Pros: This is a great course for beginners or for a quick game. The holes are fairly short, but offer some good challenges (i.e. dog legs, trees, elevated baskets, and downhill fairways). There is very little brush, so when I have to go dig out my disc I'm not fighting my way through vines.
Cons: The course is all the way on the backside of the park and the signage is limited.
Hole #2 is always muddy and wet.
Other Thoughts: The park has plenty of room for this course to be expanded into 18 holes, and could probably hold a second course like Rotary Park in Huntington.

Pros: Nice variety of shots, good use of terrain. Perfect tee pads. Easy to navigate course. Great scenery. True par 3's - birdying is not super easy even though holes aren't that long.
Cons: A little tricky to find. No place for big arms to let loose. Only 9 holes. Please Charleston, let there be 18!
Other Thoughts: This is a great stop if you are in the Charleston area. Pretty park with nice hardwood forest. This has been much-needed for Charleston for a while, and a great addition to central/southern WV DG.

Quaint course in city park.
Pros: - Easy to navigate signage, both to the start of the course itself and from one hole to the next.
- Decent variety for such a compact course, with elevation changes, multiple shot shapes, and tight technical approaches through the trees.
- Minimal congestion, usually having the course to yourself.
Cons: - Course is relatively short and probably not much of a challenge for advanced players.
- Hole signage doesn't reflect distance or hole layout.
- At only nine holes with only one alternate tee, the course can get pretty repetitive.
- Old archery target on Hole 2 in middle of the fairway, despite adding "character," is pretty annoying.
Other Thoughts: Living in Hurricane and working in Charleston, Little Creek is probably my "home course." Though it leaves a lot to be desired for more advanced players, I think it's great that the city has invested the time, money, and space into developing this course for the community. It's a great place to learn the game, and it's a fairly convenient location from anyone visiting the general Charleston area. If you're swinging through and looking for a quick round, it's definitely worth playing, but in all honesty is probably not worth a dedicated trip by itself.

Its a WV course
Pros: It had a good flow to the course. I didn't find it difficult to find the next basket. They finally have a course in the area.
Cons: Finding where the course starts could be a little tough. Concrete for Tees would be nicer. Also some signs with hole layout and distance/par would be nice.
Other Thoughts: I found out about it in local paper. I was traveling for work and had just got into disc golf. I had only borrowed discs before this course. I purchased my first set in WV to play this course on weekends. Its a WV course, Hilly with lots of Trees. I felt it was a decent course now as I look back on it.

was in the area
Pros: the only pro i found that it is a fast course so you could get 18 holes in in a short time frame which is what i was on so that was nice.
Cons: the fairways had a bit to many trees in them for my likeness but not at all a reason not to play the course
and the leaves are very hungry around early April so keep a good eye on your disc cause it will get eaten.
Other Thoughts: it was fun for a quick afternoon stop on my way back to cincinnati but i would not make a special trip their to play again but if i am in the neighbor hood i will be back to play hope to see the locals

Wood shop 101
Easy to navigate, even w/o a map, with the large "next tee" signs and natural flow. Can see every basket from the tee, except #8 (go up the slope, then turn right).
Single tees (mulch)/single basket.
Plays at the very back of a long-n-narrow multi-purpose park. Holes 2-7 are a good introduction to wooded holes: dead straight with a generous fairway, slightly down-n-right, slightly up-n-left, straight and a bit steeper down, flat-n-left, straight-but-tight, all about 200', with the throwing paths growing tighter as you go along. Hole #1 is bit longer, across a slope with a few large trees to avoid, hole #8 is up a steep slope then a right turn, and #9 is short, slightly downhill, another right-turner.
When looking for this course, don't pull into the ball golf course instead. And, this course is at the very back of the park - just keep going! Quick play - took me only 20 minutes to play a solo round.

fun technical course
Pros: great layout through dense woods - really technical and fun!
Cons: short fairways
Other Thoughts: the park is not easy to find, but it is worth the effort - just keep following the skinny road up, up the hill!

Pros: The tees had signs telling what number you are on and where the next tee is. There is a shelter where you can take a break if you are taking your time. There are many wooded shots, and obstacles. One of the first shots has a wooden box in the way of hitting the catcher. This course goes up and down.
Cons: Easy to loose your disc when making the wooded shots.

Little Creek Park
Pros: This course is almost completely wooded, making it a more technical course. Despite it being wooded, all trails and paths of flight to the baskets were well maintained. Located relatively at the top of the park, lending to a great view in between rounds. Hardly anyone around, in the park itself, or playing. Great change of elevation with some of the holes; many upshots. Every hole easy to find, with signs at each basket leading to the next tee, and a path to reach them.
Cons: every hole could have easily been played with a midrange disc or even putter. This also means that you will play the entire course comfortably in less than an hour; not really worth the drive if you aren't already heading in the general direction. Not a place to let loose and let fly :p, unfortunately.
Other Thoughts: There are hyzer and anhyzer shots, upshots and tight, straight lines. Even with the directions, I found getting towards the park somewhat confusing! Hope this helps and good luck to you :)
