Transitional nightmare

Pros: This course has some fun and challenging holes with great use of the natural topography and water features. Nice concrete tee pads and several well placed benches are a plus. Good mix of open and wooded shots. Lots of stepping stones and bridges over perennially wet spots.
Cons: I have yet to play a more confusing course than the state that this course is currently in. Where's the basket for hole 8? You will constantly wonder which hole you are actually on from this point forward. You will be disappointed by the new uneven, dirt "tee pads" littered with protruding roots and marked only by a couple of flags. Some additional signage would greatly help this situation.
Other Thoughts: When they get this mess straightened out, this will be one of the best courses in the area. Until then, your time will be better spent elsewhere.

Pros: Type of difficulty for some holes were unique such as:
Hole 1 - needed very controlled downhill slope shot.
2 - Blind basket, hyzer over briars, pond and slope away in 2 directions.
3 - Another blind hole, OB behind.
Tight, wooded remainder for most of the remainder of the course.
Cons: If the review is meant to be the *current* condition, this course frustrated the bleep out of me. It is in the middle of a redesin. Some of the new holes will be great, others - at this time - just didn't make sense.
Other Thoughts: In general, I'm not a lengthy essay reviewer. I submit a review primarily to balance a Course Rating if I believe it is skewed high or low to the 95+ courses, 15 states I've played so far. At the time of this review, the course was a 3.83 rating. I was disappointed in it.

Pros: The course demands precision rather than a big arm.

There are a good mix of holes that dogleg right and left. The course does not give any one type of disc golfer an advantage.

The paths are marked with blue markers to help you find the next hole.
Cons: Water comes into play on too many holes for me.

The "pond" or big mud puddle on hole #5 can make for a very bad round. Stay against the tree line on the left and away from the hill to the right.

I agree with an earlier reviewer that hole 13 seems to be a transition hole that messes with the flow of the course.

Hole 18 is too long with very little thought put into it. I always feel that the last hole should be the signature hole as it leaves you with the last impression of the course.
Other Thoughts: The course is definitely worth playing if you are in Charlotte. I am an intermediate disc golfer, but the courses I have played in other areas do not compare to the ones in Charlotte.

The beginner course starts on the other side of the parking lot. Do not get mixed up if you have never played tough courses.

PS If anyone finds a yellow Discraft Flash in the mud puddle on hole 5 I would be grateful to have it back.
