Nice open park
Pros: Pretty, well maintained park, good signage, plenty of benches for those that need a rest. Plenty of trash can around the course. Nice use of elevation changes. If your a newbie you will love this course. Come out on a windy day and even an experienced player will be challenged. This is a great course for night golf! The park is open until 11pm and the open layout works well for night golf. My favorite hole has to be 14, blind left to right shot around trees and down hill.
Cons: During the summer heat you will want water as there is not much shade.
The first time you play it may take a little while to find #1 and #7. 1 is by the barn and #7 is to the right and forward of #6s basket. #10 tee is closer and to the left, confuses many. You will share the park with picnickers crossing the course ocosionally.
Other Thoughts: A night tournament would be great here. Some longer tee boxes for the power players would help for those who fing the course to easy.

Grip it and rip it!!!!
Pros: It's wide open. Throw what you have. This course is best for beginners and for working on your throws. It's a lot like being in a field and just throwing your discs. Fortunately you have baskets to throw at. There are awesome concrete pads. The course and park are in great shape. There is no way to lose a disc. Great signs and each tee is pretty close to the one before it. It's a great open course.
Cons: It's a little on the easy side. The pars are off. That's about it really.
Other Thoughts: If you live close by and you want a driving range with baskets, this is the place to go. I've only been playing a few weeks so this course was great for me. I totally understand why a veteran would find this course too easy, but everyone can enjoy a beautiful day and chunking your disc as far as you can. If that's what you'd like to do, then this is the place to do it.

WIDE OPEN SPACES!!!!
Pros: LET EM RIP AND LET EM FLY! This course allows you to throw nearly every disc in your bag. It is really open, really well thought out and has great signage. It is true it is easy, I shot 2 under, but it is nice and peaceful out there. I like to watch discs soar and this course delivers just that. The front 9 is open while the back goes in and out of slightly wooded areas. If you lose a disc here I would be suprised!
Cons: The pars on some holes need to be re-thought, not very challenging as far as obstacles go, nothing to really make you alter your shot or think too much about any shot.
Other Thoughts: I have been playing now for 3 weeks and I actually liked this course a good deal. It is nice, open, quiet, and plays long which is fun to me. I threw my Dx Wraith 310 out there! It was fun to let em rip! I am a pretty solid player who has had the worst of 13 over and the best today of 2 under, elsewhere was 2 over for my best.

Pros: -very open and easy to get around.
-signage is very obvious and points you in the right direction to get you to a tee quickly.
-almost impossible to lose any kind of disc on this course.
-great place to work on every form of your golfing, from driving all the way down to putting.
Cons: -the pars need to be worked on. some are way to easy and some of them are just right.
-kinda boring set up of the pars. it goes a couple par 4s, then a couple par 3s, then a couple par 5s, then back to par four.

Pros: This is a great track for rookies like myself. The course is wide open for the most part, so creativity is not really necessary. This is a great place to work on your driving and putting without losing discs.
I especially appreciated the cleanliness of the park, the cement tee pads, and the upkeep of the course. This course is set in a beautiful area.
The course is also very well marked after you find the first tee pad. No real pedestrian danger as the course pretty much keeps to itself.
Cons: Finding the first tee pad took a few minutes, but from there everything is well marked.
I would understand if some of the pros out there found this course to be a little mundane, uneventful, and boring. Not much in the way of variety, and no real hazards to speak of. Creativity does not really come into play, but some of you long guys have plenty of opportunity to score from the tee box.
Only one set of tees. Again, probably affects more of the veteran players.
Other Thoughts: This is only the second course that I've played, and I think this course is well suited to those greenhorns out there like myself. Shot a 63 & 61 this morning. I found this course to be very enjoyable and would come back to play often. I think that because everything is well marked and clean, the course offers an experience that new golfers will want to come back to. Great course for us beginners.

Pros: Course has some longer holes than most disc golf courses. In windy conditions it can be hard shoot 54 and can become very difficult. In benign conditions double digits should be expected for 940< rated players; however, won't come as easily as it would seem.
Cons: Overall I think this course is a bit underrated. While it is wide open most holes play about 350 feet long and you still have to putt. A much better course could have been made here by bringing the water into play. I certainly would support a redesign but I think the current layout is different to most disc golf courses.
Other Thoughts: This course is good complement tournament course for nearby Redan.

open, windy, hills
Pros: Once you find #1, it's all well marked. Large cement pads flush with ground, some with brooms provided. Very well manicured grounds allow for rollers. Significant length for some bombers shots (yet no 2-drive holes). Scenic.
Cons: Bring your own shade. No real hazard- no water/rough/OB roads. Too open to craft shots or have distinct 'fairways'.
Other Thoughts: Tough to rank above average when it's this open and not too varietal.

Ugh, I hate this course!
Pros: Good distance on some holes. Good facilities and good for parents bringing thier young ones to learn.
Cons: Most holes are straight and boring. Most trees have been rremoved from the property because of thier age. Can be challenging if wind gusts over 25 MPH.
Other Thoughts: Gwinnett county is building another course on 124 to be completed May 2009. I pray it doesn't have the same designer.

Nice BEGINNER Course
Pros: *Very beginner friendly - one of the best places in ATL to learn
*Beautiful setting in a county park with rolling grassy hills -- feels like you're way out in the country
*Great signage & cement teepads
*High fun factor, mostly due to nice setting - great place to spend the afternoon
Cons: *One teepad & one hole position per hole
*No risk & reward; no challenge
*Non beginner players will find this to be a very easy & boring course
Other Thoughts: I'm rating this course lower than the other reviewers as all of the 4 & 5 star ratings is misleading to out of towners. This is not an "excellent", 4 star level course. This is a fun beginner level course.
Lenora got new Innova Discatcher baskets in 2008, resolving the old problem of the "lenora baskets"
If you're a beginner - intermediate player, I highly recommend this course. If you are advanced/pro level, this course will feel like a driving range. Bad shots are not punished and you could get by with one or two discs for the hole round as you can essentially throw the same shot on most holes.
Fun practice course, bad tourney course (a "how far under par" can you get kinda course)
