Quick and Fun

Pros: This course plays quickly all 9 can be finished in 40 minutes or less. Great for those times when you want to play but can't spare much time. This course is great for anyone starting out as the shorter distances lends to improved putting and approach skills. Targets are easier to reach for players just beginning and my kids are always up to playing here.
Cons: As stated by other reviewers course has short tees but this really only applies to the longer holes as most are short enough that the tees are not a factor. Target 9 which is the last target on the couse here the placement is questionable as it really is placed in an area that could harm parked vehicles as well as park users who are non-players.
Other Thoughts: Things to make course better would be: Multiple Basket placements. Larger tees on longer holes at least.
Target 1: Chainlinked fence runs completely along right side. Anhyzer and you will likely cross it and go on to a business private property. Recently they blocked the drive with a semi trailer and when this happened I was warned to not come onto the property again. I mean really! Just picking up my disc.
I use a fairway driver here and usually make a stable enough throw to have a short putt to the target.
Hysers will leave you in the woods with an uphill approach to the target.
Target 2: Very reachable with a putter slight anhyzer can get an Ace but the wood here usually makes most settle for birdie.
Target 3: Downhill with slight anhyzer. I use a midrange here and can reach the target or have a short putt. However it is wooded and hyzers get you into a low rough area.
Target 4: Putter will do it. Single tree in middle of fairway and just in front of the target. I use a hyzer throw here and have rattled chains nearly aceing this one of several throws.
Target 5: Downhill but straight I prefer a midrange here the target is somewhat guarded by a large tree which is slightly offset to the right of your approach. You use a stable shot and get a good chance for an Ace but most usually birdie here.
Target 6: Six is likely the most technical target on this course. Small island of trees and rough inthe middle of the fairway forces a left or right throw off the tee.
A stable throw to right will get you through an opening but keeping the throw low avoids the canopy. Too much anhyzer and the disc finds a small stream which is embedded in some tough stuff.
Throw too long here and your disc can end up at the tail end of a large tile system where mud, water and rocks are plentiful.
Going left is longer but a good anhyzer here can set you up with an open throw to the target.
Target 7: Here again the use of cedars to block the way to the target is used. Midway in the middle of the fairway is a large cedar. You must again go left or right. If right too much anhyzer will put your disc in someones backyard. There is a row of large pines which could help deflect an anhyzer throw.
Throwing to the left will require a slight anhyzer but maybe a better path. Too much hyzer can cross the fence into a baseball field or land on a paved pathway. Most likely your second shot will be a reasonable putt for birdie.
Target8: Eight is an open target that is positioned just off the edge of a bottom area that runs along the entire left of the fairway. If you throw too much of a hyzer the disc will end up in the bottom of a thick rough which will require an uphill throw to recover. Right is a wide open fairway so an anhyzer throw shouldn't affect you much unless it crosses in to the baseball field or paved walking path which are way on the right. If you land short watch the approach shot because an over throw again will put you in the bottom area.
A fairway driver or even along midrange disc will work here.
Target9: The final target on this course begins open off the tee and continues to narrow as well as curve to the right around a fenced baseball field and paved walking pathway. To the left about midway and slightly uphill is the disc golf course parking lot.
Throwing a hyser could crash your disc into someones vehicle. Throw too much anhyzer and your disc could take out walkers/runner/bicyclists on the paved trail or cross over into the baseball field any of the right or left options are not a way to go. So a slight anhyzer with a fairway driver will get you close and at least set you up for the birdie.
It's a little like the putt-putt of disc golf. Just a fun course to play.

Great for Mids/Putters
Pros: This course is very easy to follow with great signage and flow. The course starts with a 325ft hole followed by holes 2-5 which are all under 175 ft. Holes 6-9 finish up the course with a bit longer of hole but none over 275 feet. This course makes great use of the available land and will test your mid range and putter game. There are a few small streams that flow through the course but retrieval of discs is not an issue.
Cons: Two of the only cons are that the concrete tees are a bit on the short side. I realize that when holes are so short you don't necessarily need a longer tee pad but I just like the run up space. The other con is the instep baskets. These are single chain catchers and blow thrus and spit outs will be common.
Other Thoughts: I for one am glad to have this course. I have played in over 20 states and enjoy cities that have at least one real short course so that I can work on my putters and mid ranges. This course is also a great way for beginners to learn the game without the frustration of the other local courses that are much longer.

Short 9 Hole Couse
Pros: Mt. Juliet's first disc golf course is a short course with pee pads that are very small and most holes are very short. It started out very promising on hole #1 with a 327 ft hole, but went down hill from there with a bunch of less than 200 footers in the woods. They also have the cheaper baskets with 1 set of chains. There are benches, good signs and trash cans.
Cons: Can be muddy, too short but good for beginners
