My Home Course
Pros: Crockett is a tale of two courses. The am and pro tees are completely different. When I first started playing I played the am tees and it was a fun beginners course. When I switched to the Pro it has become an extremely challenging course. It is worth the time it takes to look for all the pro tees. You will hear people say that it is too open often. They haven't truly played the challenge of the pro tees. Don't get me wrong, there are some long ones. Right now 12 and 9 are in long at 700 feet each. The truly challenging pro tees are 4, 5, 7, 12, 16, 17. Pay attention to the OB on the pro tees because it is a threat on most of the holes.
Cons: There are a lot of places to lose your discs in the summer. Fall and spring golf on Sunday afternoons can get very crowded. Any of the above mentioned challenging holes can easily become double bogeys or worse for a rec/intermediate class player.
Other Thoughts: I rate Crockett high because I never tire of playing it. I have played with some players who are very good and have never seen anyone finish the pro tees under. Bring your long distance discs for pro hole 14 when it's in the long position, you will want to throw the whole bag as it's a long sweeping downhill shot especially made for backhanders.

BEST COURSE IVE PLAYED
Pros: awesome course don't know where to begin. people say its too open, some say its too windy. the wind is only bad on the long open shots which is what makes those holes interesting. other holes are in the woods and seem to be easy but once you throw you realize they are harder then they appear. the baskets are nice and i played right after a rain and the pads made from carpet were still grippy enough that i could still put power behind my throws with confidence. People complain about the big arms a lot for this course, i throw max +or- 300 feet and i played with my buddy that is a true tournament player who i have seen throw 400 450 with no problem (both or first time on the course). i held with him the whole time and actually beat him by 1 stroke, you just have to know how to play and play your best, if you don't bring your A game the course will eat you alive.
Cons: the only thing that i can even think of that they might change is the pads, but as long as the carpet is changed regularly i don't see it being a problem.
Other Thoughts: I'm from bowling green KY and have played all the courses here, all of them in Louisville, Franklin, and other place and ill say it again this is by far my favorite course. i played on a sunny Sunday afternoon after a rain storm and there were people everywhere but i think people know now where the disc golf routs are because no one was ever in our way.
