Fighting the Critical's
0 Helpful / 4 Not
Pros: A Challenge
Well Balanced (long and short holes)
Course for the Intermediate to the Pros
Technical (mostly wooded or blind shots)
Multiple Tees (2) and 2 tee location possibility (changes based of LU Team Practice Needs)
Great for Practice and Learning Technical Shots
A few possible Ace shots
Occasionally hard to find a tee (not the tough if look around though)
Long walk up and down hills
Other Thoughts: Against what others have send, all in all in it a fantastic course. Though not recommended for the beginner as to how long and technical the throws are, highly recommend for those who what to test what they have learned. Not you "Typical University Course" as it is used for the LU Disc Golf Teams Occasional Practice (reason for its creation) as they are a team that competes in Pro Tourneys and occasional has PDGA Pros drop by (got to meet a few, you may find one on your visit). All in all a great course if you are looking for something more challenging that Lynchburg's Course (Peaks View Park DG)

Pros: Played alot of course and this one has all the shots. From long to short. Open to tight. Left to right, right to left.
Cons: Just needs a little bit of love to make it a GREAT Course. Line the fairways in the woods. A couple trees here and there.
Other Thoughts: TRASH CANS. EVERY COURSE NEEDS THEM

Pros: This is an awesome course. Tight uphill shots, wooded bending, what in the world were they thinking shots, and the just plain awesome "throwing off the side of a cliff" shot on 17. The view from up there was worth the walk. They have the best signage I have ever seen at a dg course, period. Some open shots to test your arm out, and some very tricky shots. They made excellent use of the surrounding topography and look to still be improving the course with subtle tweaks here and there,
Cons: Can a brother get a trash can? I like to carry a couple bottles of water with me, (you'll need it walking these hills) and a trash can or three would work nicely. They do have a couple of hols that will eat your discs. Heavy briars and thick stuff, but they seem to be thinning those out some. They had cleared out a lot between the first time I played there and last week. One other thing, Liberty U, guys, pour some concrete for those tee boxes? Maybe some brick pavers if you wanna get fancy.
Other Thoughts: It's hard, but it's the course that seems to have it all. Breathtaking views and yu get to use almost your whole arsenal of discs here. You remember almost all the holes because they are each so different and challenging at the same time. 18 is about the least challenging hole out there.

Pros: Where to begin...
This course provides every possible variety of shot you can think of! From steep elevation to steep declines, dog leg lefts, dog leg rights, s turns, woods, wide open shots, ravines...this course has it all. The course definitely has its sights set on being part of the PDGA and as a result several of the holes are challenging, but this makes for a great round of disc golf!
The course is brand new and as of this writing, is still having some work done to it. Each hole has two tees (gravel boxes) which allows for an amateur shot as well as a Pro. There are posts for each hole with a spot for an eventual hole outline, distance, and par, but as of now, none of this exists.
The course starts off in the woods for holes 2-10 and while the woods can be thick at times, the designers did a great job of cutting away some of the trees making for some open paths to throw down. There is very little underbrush at all in the woods, and when trees were chopped down, they were mulched and the mulch spread out. Even though the course is still under construction and signs are not all set up, there are little markers attached to trees pointing you in the direction of the next tee, as well as a red stake in the ground after each basket pointing you towards the next tee.
When you come out out of the woods be prepared for some great distance drives! Several shots make phenomenal use of natural gullies and ravines.
Cons: In my opinion, there really are no cons to this course. There are some punishing bramble thickets on some of the holes when you exit the woods (hole 13 in particular) but this isn't a con: just a great incentive to not throw accuracy to the wind when you throw that distance driver!
The course could use a couple of trash cans throughout the course...but this seems to be a problem endemic throughout disc golf courses...
Other Thoughts: Phenomenal course! If you are anywhere in the area, you must stop by to play. This course seems to draw from and combine elements of many local courses (Elk Creek, Falling Creek, Peaks View) and yet improve on each! For many of the shots this course is all about the opening drive, so make sure and pack a couple of distance drivers.
Hole 17 truly is worth going to this course for. You come out of some woods and to the tee box which is on a ledge overlooking a soccer field about 75-100 feet below you. Look straight ahead and you see 460 and in the distance, the blue ridge mountains. It is breathtaking. And then, you get to let your driver rip over the field towards the basket on the left. An absolutely amazing shot!
Best course in the area, hands down!
