Fitting that it's located on a school campus
Pros: This is a course that is ideal for learning the game from scratch or adding new shots to the evolving disc golfer. The first four holes are about dealing with simple obstacles whereas the last five are about adding length and giving you the opportunity to learn new shots. Clear signs and tees for every hole make this a relatively easy course to navigate.
The signs also have a "young player" par printed (I believe it says under 12 if I can remember correctly) which gives them optimism when they can't par the 526ft 4th hole for example (the par listed here on DGCR says 4/3 but lists 5 for the youngsters).
Cons: School hours make this a course that is available realistically only after 4pm or weekends. Dirt tees could get nasty on rainy days.
When I played, the mailbox next to the first tee was out of scorecards/maps that were mentioned in another review so I was a little confused on navigating the course but figured it out rather quickly.
Other Thoughts: As I said in the title, this is an ideal educational course for the beginner or the advanced player looking to add different techniques. Much better than Arlington Farms in Waco, anyway.
Personally, I refined my RHBH anhyzer shot here and it has paid off.
This is worth playing if you want a change of pace from the other local courses or have a solid Saturday to introduce new players to this great game!

In the middle of nowhere!
Pros: There are several signs that point out the fact that the course is on school property and is off limits Monday - Friday from 7A.M.-4P.M. There is a mailbox with a scorecard and map near hole 1 tee. All tee pads are marked with nice sighs but do not show where the basket actualy is. On most holes the basket is in line with the tee.Nice small town course. Hole 1 is located next to the school with a road between the tee and the basket. Hole 2's basket is located behind a storage shed. The shed has a fenced in garden next to it but the gate was not locked. Not sure if it ever will be so keep that in mind in case it is locked. The basket is not fenced in but is close to it. Hole 3 is located behind the fence. Hole 4 is located on the right end of the tennis court. Once again there are locked gated entering the tennis court so watch your throw. Hole 5-9 are wide open in the field. Very easy navigation plus the score card has a map on the back of it.
Cons: Located on school property so playing has to be done around school time. Fenced in areas that could be locked if your disc goes in them. No concrete tees.

Pros: This course is pretty fun to play for a small town 9-hole course. A few holes have decent obstacles. One especially plays around, or as I tried it, over a large tennis court. The distances of the holes are much longer than I am used to encountering on 9-hole courses. A couple are over 500 ft. Also, all of the holes are well-marked at the tees with distances and maps.
Cons: After the first 4 holes, the obstacles mostly disappear. The course at that point just becomes a flat field with baskets. But at least the distances are good. Another issue is that there are no tee boxes, but as long as it is dry it doesn't seem to be a problem.
Other Thoughts: I enjoyed the course. It gave me a good opportunity to work on some of my longer drives. Will play again soon.
