Fun and Challenging
Pros: Technical, tightly wooded course with several elevation changes and mostly defined fairways. Well maintained with pro shop on site. Starts and ends near The Rivermen open air bar. Live music on summer weekends. Great for accuracy throwers and learning what your discs like to do.Beautiful forest, barely any green brier. Fun for the wild bunch as well as family friendly. Great addition to the WV disc golf scene, so get out there and throw.
Cons: Uneven rubber tee's, steep hills can be troublesome for some people, but i enjoy the extra exercise. Some hole are pretty short, hills can be slippery when wet.
Other Thoughts: We are trying to start a local DG club called New River Disc Slingers or NRDS, as we like to be called. Once we get up and going we are gonna try and level out tee pads and have a few alternate baskets and tee's. We're trying to get more people aware of how fun and addicting DG can be. If your interested stop by some time and ask us about it or hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org. DISC GOLF FOREVER!!!

Pros: Very Easy to find.
Great location with many other activities onsite such as Canopy tour, rafting, climbing, paintball, hiking,and much more.
It is a great course for beginners and pros alike.
Good use of the topography.
Very friendly and helpful people onsite.
Very easy to find the next tee.
Great location to create an 18 hole course!
The New River Gorge is a beautiful area and worth checking out for sure!
The course is on the edge of a gorgeous old growth Eastern Hemlock forest and within a stones throw of the NRG itself.
Cons: The tee pads leave ALOT to be desired.
The rubber mats are uneven, some are sliding down the hills. Some are placed over stumps and makes it easy to roll an ankle during run up drives.
Sometimes you will run into people with dogs OFF leash and they love to chase your discs. At the tee for #7 you will see the remains of Viking after a run in with a canine. lol.
The trails can get slippery after it's rains. A little much or a few steps would fix that problem.
Other Thoughts: If this course would pave the tees, maybe add a few optional pin locations, add pro tees, do a little mulching, and maybe enforce a leash law it will be a great little 9 holer. I would love to see it transform into atleast an 18 hole course. Adventures On The Gorge has alot of beautiful property and could easily make it an 18 hole course or even build a separate 18 hole course on the gorge side of Ames Heights Rd and keep the current 9 hole course.

Pros: Short course, not too much walking, but a great activity after white water or doing some of the other great activities of this beautiful area of West Virginia.
Cons: Will look forward to the next play there, maybe with 18 holes.

Great WV dg!
Pros: Great use of land and trees. Sharp curving shots needed, but fairways aren't too tight. Soon will be 18 holes!
Cons: Some very short holes. The par 4 holes are 3's anywhere else.
Other Thoughts: This is a very cool course in a dark, shaded WV hardwood forest. There's not much groundcover so finding discs is easy. Should be 18 after this coming winter.

Good addition to WV disc golf
Pros: The course is nicely laid out and the next hole is easy to find. The distances are manageable for the newest disc golfers.
Cons: The distance does not give much challenge for the experienced disc golfer.
Other Thoughts: I like to see new courses being added to an area that has very few courses. This is a good step forward for WV disc golf.
