Much Better Lately
Pros: There has been a lot of work done to this course this year. I had really thought it was a joke then. Following the first 6-7 tees, it looked like someone hastily finished the rest of the course and moved on to better things. The signage was poor, fairways were tight or nonexistent with some really nasty rough, and it was impossible to navigate the course without a map.
Now, the course looks so much better. The fairways are clear of much of the thorns, honeysuckle, and other weedy brush that made this course nearly unplayable. The additional baskets are awesome, and every hole as multiple tee pads so that two rounds feel like two different courses. Hank has done a real nice job!
Cons: Some of the baskets have absolutely no line from the pad. While I'm sure this is part of the design to make it difficult, some of the shots you are basically throwing a disc into a wall of trees hoping to get lucky enough not to hit one until it has traveled 150'.

Pros: The whole course has been cleared of honeysuckle/weeds so any mis throws are much easier to find and new lines to take that wrent possible before. Baskets have been painted orange so they are much easier to find from the tee. This course has been completely turned around since I last played it in May. #5 bastket moved to a rhbh hyzer. I talked to one of the designers heading the clean up and he informed me that they are adding alternate pin placements soon. If you didn't enjoy the course in the past because of the overgrowth, take a look at it now, you will be surprised.

Pros: - Shaded course
- Well maintained
- New Baskets
Cons: - Fairways still need some work(other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: I feel some of the fairways could be better defined. Some holes you don't have a clear line for a shot. I find myself shaping shots through the trees and either making it through, or hitting a tree and it is not a skill issue. It is simply some shots you have to make are unavailable due to one or two extra trees in the way. I do like that this course is designed for more technical skill than just bombing out drives, but a few cut down trees would make this course still very technically challenging while helping new players learn to use different shots and be rewarded for hitting proper lines. In my opinion a course should challenge pros or players of higher skill, while also having well defined fairways so that new players can learn properly what ways to throw and why. This only applies to a few holes as you can see the course designer(Hank) has put in a lot of work and this course shows it. Overall I gave the course a 4 because these issues are outweighed by the beauty, overall design, and just natural fun of the course. I have only played the A tees so far, but next time I get out I will be playing the B placements. I look foward to playing here in the future.

Pros: Excellent Wooded course, though some tees need better green signs, the scenery is gorgeous, the drives are nice and long with a few short ones, great view of the lake on the first few holes.
Cons: Need signs and pictures for the rest of the holes, like the first few do.
Other Thoughts: Takes a while to drive to the lodge where the course is located, but worth it.

Pros: Multiple Launch Pads, Shade from trees, hard to loose a disc as there isn't much brush, not too busy, adding 9 more holes and I've heard they might add multiple basket locations for each hole to have a unique round each time, plenty of parking
Cons: You're going to be throwing and hitting a lot of trees as you're in the middle of the woods, need to have a map the first time you play
Other Thoughts: I really like this course, each time I've played I've had a very enjoyable experience and they're working to make it an even nicer course by adding more holes and more character.
