Pros: This nine hole course offers a quick and fair challenge utilizing varied lengths over rolling hills elevations. Mostly open there's mild technical demand but a few good pin placements (5,7,8) and 9's elevated basket add to the challenge. This course prompts a couple of stationary throws from the tee, a few big bombs and those in between. As such I see it being good for honing the fundamentals; an excellent beginner's course and a solid intermediate's. Several ace runs lend to the fun factor. Favorites would be 5, 7 and 8: 5 for its long downhill left to right line with little creek and semi protected basket; 7 for its tree ringed basket with window ace run; 8 for its long over and down the hill with left to right approach. Quality baskets, concrete tees, decent signs and a kiosk with overhead map round out the accoutrements. Being in a nice community park 10 minutes off the interstate this course can be a good break for travelers along I64.
Cons: The flow: crossing the road after 2, again after 6 and then the walk back to 1 gives it broken feel, even while it's a fast track. Most shots are straight or hyzer (RHBH) lines with a couple anhyzer approaches.
Other Thoughts: I tend to shy away from 9 hole courses and don't have as broad experience to draw comparisons, but this was a quick 40 minute track with several good challenges. If it were nine holes more, of similar variety and caliber it could likely earn 3.5.

Pros: The Lawrenceburg-Anderson disc course offers a nice layout with holes that range between 190ft-615ft and a mixture of varying elevations and fairways. This course is all around one of the best 9-hole courses that I have played. The course is still very new, and all the equipment is in great condition.

Course Essentials:
Baskets: Innova DISCatcher
Tee Pads: Concrete
Signs: List Hole# and Distance

Course Design & Layout:
Fairway Variety: Straight (6), Left (1), Right (2)
Elevation Variety: Up (2), Dn (4), Flat (2), Up/Dn (1)
Length: 3165ft Total (352avg)

The land itself has a limited number of trees yielding an overall open feel to the course. The available tree-lines, along with some well placed mando's were used to create a variety of lines and shots throughout the course. Navigation is simple and straight-forward, very easy to follow, with next tee markers located as needed throughout the course. A message board near the first tee contains a course map to show the overall layout. The entire park was very clean and well-maintained, including the course. All baskets had the putting circle (10m) cut around them to give the true feeling of a "putting green". The design utilizes available slopes and elevations to create some nice putting greens and added challenge to the course. As mentioned, hole#5 is fantastic, nice downhill with a gentle left>right fairway defined by a row of trees down each side. Hole#8, great par4 hole that is mostly open, but thick trees down the right side with the pin tucked into a corner and well guarded on the right side. The elevated basket on #9 is a nice feature too.
Cons: -Longer walk from #9 back to the parking lot
-Mostly open (low technical aspect)
Other Thoughts: All around, a solid design. The course is not far from the Bluegrass parkway and is located right off of highway 127. The course plays very quick and is very easy to follow, so if you are near the area, it's definitely worth the time to check it out.

Pros: This nine hole course has lots of elevation changes, an excellent variety of hole lengths ranging from 190ft to 615ft and a good shot variety. The course is mostly open with some well placed trees on a number of the holes. Holes 2 and 3 have hilly putting greens which really add to the challenge.

Navigating the course is easy and next tee signs ensure you won't have a problem getting around. The course appears to be well taken care of and the bulletin board by hole 1 looks updated with everything going on in the area.

There is very little rough on the course and water is only really in play on one hole.

While there are a a few notable holes, hole 5 is my favorite. It's a 420 downhill shot with a gentle turnover all the way. Hyzer out too soon and you run the risk of going ob in the small stream on the left. Hole 8 is the longest hole on the course at 615 ft and is a great par 4. Its basket is protected on the right side of the fairway making a tricky second shot to put you in a position to get your birdie three. Hole 9 is wide open but has a elevated basket to make it more interesting.
Cons: Hole 9 finishes leaving you with a long walk back to the parking lot and hole one.

While some of the holes have trees in play, a few of them are simply wide open. Due to the lack of trees there really aren't many technical shots here, just grip it and rip it.

It's a shame this course is only 9 holes. Another 9 here would really make this a notable course that could attract more out of town disc golfers.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is one of the better 9 hole courses I've played, but it is only 9 holes. So if you're in the area, I would recommend stopping to play here.

This more advanced course is a great compliment the beginner 9 hole course across town.
