Pros: 20 holes.
Private course so it's usually not very busy.
Excellent mix of elevation, tight fairways, short technical holes through the woods, and long holes in the open fields.
Small campground on site.
ATV's and animals welcome.
Cons: Natural tees, sometimes can be a little uneven.
Thick brush and tall grass off the fairways.
Long and in the middle of nowhere, which isn't necessarily a con, just more of inconvenience.
Bugs!
The layout can be a little hard to follow in some spots.
Other Thoughts: This is one of my all-time favorite courses. The owner has done a nice job designing this course. they also do a pretty good job maintaining it, which can be a lot of work in the summer when all the grass is tall and thick. The owners are also very good hosts and will accompany you on your round if you like. There are also a number of tournaments held on this course throughout the year, including Discraft's annual Ace Race.
The course is long and there are a lot of elevation changes, so this course will definitely give you some exercise. The wind can get a little bad on the last four holes, as they are all played in the fields and along the rolling hills.

Pros: This is a great challenging, hilly course. The owners are very nice and helpful. This course is amazing and very fun. Well designed with lots of thought and work put in to make for a great experience. Lots of elevation changes I think there is only one flat hole. This course has it all Lefts, Rights, Ups, Downs, Woods, Fields and Water.
You will get a great work out playing this course, as it is very long up and down rolling hills. Nice mix of short and moderately long holes with two monster bombers. The area this course is in is absolutely beautiful with some amazing hilltop tee off views. It is also great for fall colors. Lighted baskets for night play and it is open in the winter. This course is off the beaten path and will not be busy, no waiting. There are quite a few real quality courses within a half hour of the course so you can get more than one course in a day. Course has three or four signature holes on it. THIS IS A MUST PLAY!!!

COURSE DISCRIPTION.

HOLE #1
Big down hill shot with water 40 ft. behind the basket. When you look at this hole you may not think the water will be in play but it is. The hill you throw off is about 175 ft. high and the wind can play a big factor here. Defiantly aceable but don't let it get away. Signature hole 1!!
HOLE #2
Up hill shot into a thick young growth wooded area. Drive hard up hill and try to navigate through the tight trees. The basket is very well protected. A three feels good here.
HOLE#3
Hillside field hyzer! Watch out for roll a ways to the right and tall grass on the left. Slightly up hill but pin is on a down slope. Alternate pin in woods to the right witch makes for a hard shot to a well-protected basket.
HOLE#4
Big thickly wooded up shot. Hard tee shot because of overhanging trees. Small trees surround the pin and a two here is an awesome score. Once again watch for rolling discs.
HOLE #5
Gradual moderately wooded down hill. Big dead trees in the middle of the fairway that are hard to get around. Once you have a clean line to the basket it's a fairly easy shot.
HOLE #6
Field goal hyzer! You will have to throw in between two trees that are quite a way up the fairway. This fairway is kinda tight but not as tight as some. Aceable!
HOLE #7
Big Downhill Wooded Hyzer! This is a hard hole with lots of trees to contend with. Trees line the fairway and branches reach in to grab you disks. You will need a hard downhill drive, 100 ft. approach over a small pond and a putt to get a three.
HOLE #8
Up hill field shot to protected pin! Most of this hole is wide open it is moderately up hill and when you get to the tree line it gets a little steeper. The pin on this hole is protected by those pesky small trees again and is also on a hillside. Good luck getting a two.
HOLE #9
Another big up in the woods! This is a tight fairway and it is pretty steep. In will take a very good shot to get up the hill and have a chance at a two. The basket has some trees protecting it but not as bad as some of the holes that you will have played. It is on the hillside once again though.
HOLE #10
Thick uphill hyzer! There are only a few opening to throw through here but it isn't as steep as the last one. The hole is flat for a nice change and isn't crowded by those little trees.
HOLE #11
Tree farm hole! This is a tough one for sure. The pine trees here are hard for sure. Up have to throw high and try to get some distance on it. The trees are not tall enough to shoot under, it makes for a hard first shot. If you don't get enough distance and can't see the basket your second shot will be even harder because you will have to shoot down a ten foot wide lane or up and over the 10 to 15 ft tall trees. I felt good with a 4 here.
HOLE #12
SIGNATURE HOLE 2! Down then up hyzer with a thick canopy of trees. You tee off down a hill with big oak trees leaning and reaching into the fairway. If you can get through the maze of branches and end up on the uphill slope you will be in good shape but will have to have some power to get up the hill.
HOLE #13
Down hill tonal! This hole is very tight you will have to throw it straight or it may take you a few shot to get down the hill. Very creative hole another signature.
HOLE #14
Up hill anhyzer on a hillside! Out of the woods and into the fields, the rest of the holes are in rolling open fields, this one isn't so bad as long as you stay out of the tall grass on the left.
HOLE #15
Down hill to a pin on a hillside rollaways are possible. Throw a big hyzer and watch it fly. Wide open just hit fairway and par is yours.
HOLE #16
This is the last Signature and it's a long one. 500 ft. of fun! Throw from one hill to another over some small shrubs and trees. Let it rip and hope you don't land behind a shrub. Big arms have a chance at a two because the tee is a little higher than the pin but it would have to be a great throw.
HOLE #17
Hilltop to hillside! Aceable but not easy because of the wind. You will have to throw hard to get close. You should be able to get one back here if you have a good drive. Wide open once again.
HOLE #18
Straight uphill that is the most basic hole on the course. Watch out for the grass on either side of the fairway.
HOLE #19
Across a valley to a nice big green! Not to hard get one back here if you can.
HOLE #20
The final hole is a long downhill bomb witch is nice to end the course with. Two drives and a putt and your done!


Cons: Natural tees and long grass are the only two things keeping this course from a 5 discer. The tees are not bad but it would be nice to have cement. Some holes have very tall grass and you will spend time looking for discs if you don't hit the fairway. Bring your own food and drink as there is nothing near by and no food or drink at the course. If you ask they will happily fill water bottles and even bring more out to you on the course if you call. I forgot about the signage because this course is so great. There are no hole signs on this course and it could be hard for a first timer to find there way through. The map that is provided is very helpfull but hopfully they will have real sings soon.
