OK Rec Course
Pros: It's cool in the shade. You can easily birdie every hole. It's a total little rec/family/biginner course. Take your child here to teach him the game. The course is played completely under the shade of some big trees. The holes are all flat, weaving around the trees.
Cons: Old baskets with single chains. The terrain doesn't have a whole lot going.
Other Thoughts: If you're here, get out and work on your short game. But don't drive out of your way looking for it like we did. That's why this is such a great site.

Short Course on Civil War Battlefield
Pros: Cool, quiet setting
Cons: Baskets, length, cost
Other Thoughts: The Bull Run Regional Park disc golf course is a small part of a very large complex of battefield sites, picnic areas, a small water park, nature trails, and a campground. So the park is full of great stuff. The course is one of the older ones in the state, is very short, and is set entirely in a quiet and sometimes boggy set of woods. The course has concrete tee pads, but they're small, and the baskets only have a single row of chains. On the plus side, it's nice and cool in the woods, the forest is mostly comprised of well established hardwoods, and if you want to get good at using your putters and mid-range discs, well, this is the place to do it.
I didn't need my driver on any of Bull Run's 18 holes. I threw a Shark or occasionally a Roc off the tee, and then putted (when I didn't hit a nearby tree). The course is all in the woods, but is not too tight, and would be good for beginners to learn control. Experienced players, however, often break par out here, I'm sure. The course did have straight shots plus enough holes requiring controlled left and right turns off the tee, and did not have any weird or unreasonable demands. It's just short, flat, and basic; good for beginners and those needing to work on their control.
Favorite Hole - #18, fairly open, gradual hook shot.
