Good course to relax on
Pros: As most have pointed out this is a course with very little traffic, therefore you are going to be able to take your time and enjoy each hole with multiple throws or having little need to rush.
The holes are well taken care of and it is easy to follow the signs from hole to hole. If you get off to the rough your will have a easy time locating your disc and just about as easy a time getting towards the basket with your next shot. Each hole plays very short with the exception of 1 and 7. These holes are not monsters though.
With the mix of wooded holes and open holes you won't be burned out after one round and could easily play 1-3 round in about 2 hrs.
Cons: It is a little tricky trying to find this park, but it might have been my bad planning going into Mt. Juliet. (It is right off the interstate down the road that runs parallel to the Providence shopping center. There is a sign for the park on down that road.)
Once I was there it was tricky to find the first tee from the parking lot, but if you go up to the flag pole and walk down the path to the white picket fence you will see it easily.
The first thing you notice are the small tee pads that are about 5'x3'. Its a little awkward with one's normal steps but there is room behind the pad for more of a walk up. Once you get down to the basket you'll see that they are a bit smaller than most baskets and only have one ring of chains. These chains will not necessarily grab your putter, so no banging it home.
There are some fences along a few of the holes that if you go over them it would be a pain to retrieve your disc. I would say keep it low and know how your disc will fly with your throw type (RHBH, RHFH, LHBH, LHFH)
There are a few holes that you have one ending right into the next fairway or putting area of another hole. This would actually only be a problem if there were alot of people out there and then you might have to wait around or keep an eye out for the others playing not to hit you or vice versa.
Other Thoughts: As a whole I would go back and play this course, but that is knowing what I'm going to get for the drive there.
Hole 1: dogleg left with fencing off to the right
Hole 2: short-slightly uphill curved shot to the right for a putter or a easily thrown midrange
Hole 3: downhill slight dogleg right
Hole 4: narrow fairway, shortest hole on course
Hole 5: good RHBH natural hyzer shot with minimal arm put into it
Hole 6: great hole to go over the top with a Thumber, easier I say than trying to get through the ground level opening
Hole 7: maybe most challenging hole with large coniferous trees down middle of fairway. RHFH might be easiest way but turning one over just right is a good challenge (just be careful it doesn't come out of it early or you could be in the baseball field)
Hole 8: level open shot with tree line and thick growth down left hand side
Hole 9: Careful not to get into the baseball field but keeping a sidearm low or putting your backhand our far enough can be a fun challenge to park it
I heard mention that they may try and turn this into a 18 hole course. I say put a little bit more into what is already there and it would be just as good as adding on. Maybe multiple tees from longer distances or different angles and there is always the possibility of multiple basket placements being added.
I'd recommend playing this course cause it offers something different than all the other courses around town and it is very well keep up.
