Needs some work
Pros: The course plays through a wooded area in a state park that is solely dedicated to disc golf, so you probably won't run into any other park users during your round. There isn't much elevation, but there are some rock piles and sinkholes that come into play and add a little bit of the elevation element.
Most of the holes are pretty tight, and are a good balance of right and left turning shots with plenty of straight shots. There are a couple shots with wider fairways, but they still play through the woods and so you'll end up in trouble if you stray from the fairways.
This course really tests your accuracy, and makes you pay for errant shots without a big risk of losing your disc.
Cons: The course is totally flat, and every shot plays down a wooded corridor. On top of this, most of the holes fell in to the same distance range. This meant that the course felt very repetitive, without much real differentiation between holes. The lack of elevation also makes for poor drainage, and so the course gets very muddy after a rain and seemed to stay that way for a while (and the mud is good thick clay, so you'll take lots of it with you).
The course is very hard to follow in spots, with unused concrete tees scattered through the forest and no next tee markers. If not for seeing some locals, we would have had trouble even finding some holes, let alone playing them in the correct order.
Several of the baskets, tees and signs were in sad shape, and could use lots of work. There were concrete pedestals left behind under many baskets where the soil had eroded away, and it made for odd skips on upshots, and dings to softer plastic discs.
Other Thoughts: The course was a fun play, though hard to follow and not in the best shape. If you're driving by, this is a nice wooded course, but not a must-play. Newer players might find it a little frustrating to be in the trees the whole time. More experienced players will find some good accuracy and line shaping challenges here, but not enough variety to make it a really interesting course.

Oldie but a goodie

Pros: Shady course in the woods, great for summer play. Great technical course for beginners as holes are shorter but still force you to stay in the fairways. More experienced players can still enjoy shot shaping through tighter lines and going for birdies. Take a step back in time and play an older course that reminds us of how disc golf was in its infancy.
#1 over the rocky sinkhole is one of the best looking opening holes around. #15 also has a basket placed over a large sinkhole and may be the hardest hole on the course. Both are unique holes.
Cons: Gets really muddy when it rains. A couple of holes are "hidden" down a path, and depending on how you play it, you may play 17-20 holes and not realize it. Baskets, tees, and signs are older as well and show it. Some effort has been made recently to correct the hole numbering, but there is still some inconsistencies between tees, signs, and baskets.
Other Thoughts: *Navigation Update*- There is now a white number painted on each tee to help with navigation and hole order. Essentially there are two #12's that are completely different, and then two #13's (that happen to play to the same basket). So after 11 you have a choice- backtrack up the fairway and play that 12/13, or walk down a trail to the other 12/13. Both finish at the same spot getting you ready for 14.
This is one of the older TN courses, the tees, signs, and baskets show their age, but the fairways are mature and well-broken in.
In a state park, so there is camping, picnicking, etc. Restrooms are at the park office.
