Pros: hole course can be played with a putter in 20 minutes.
Cons: no tees or markings. difficult to know where to play. fairways are only possible to navigate a 20-30 feet at a time. the baskets are abysmal with only one set of chains tied at bottom. frisbee falls through the poorly designed basket.

 Good Intentions...Years ago!

Pros: Friendly Staff gave me a scorecard and showed me the #1 tee. Someone,a few years ago,put some Blood,Sweat & Tears into building the homemade DISCatcher knock-offs, and some clearing in the woods. A few Open & mostly Wooded with some Elavation. The scorecard has very generous pars. So kids and beginners won't get frustrated.
Cons: I paid $2 to play here.....well it's now marked off my "Wish List". The homemade DISCatcher Pro knock-offs,Made of a lesser grade of steel. I don't believe there was ONE that was complete. ALL of the baskets had only one ring on the bottom!? Cut thru's possible on EVERY Hole. NO marked Tees!?.... The scorecard says "Suggested"!? The course gets so rarely used there is no "Dirt" tee pad....er "area". So I just Teed off from the basket a threw according to the map on the scorecard and the cut rough. With a little back tracking I was able to play this in 20 minutes! The scorecard doesn't have holes distance.
Other Thoughts: I hope a local club can make the owner "See the Light". With some more Blood, Sweat & Tears,and Re-Conditioned Baskets, this could be a really good kid/beginner course.....Another Camping Activity. Intermediates will have fun going for Ace's! Pros Could work on their putting on the #1/9 basket & makeup a 5 hole safari course. I'm thinking a previous emplyee put this course in and is no longer with them? The worst "DISCatcher" was,I believe #5, the basket was on the ground and in two pieces. Most had the Chains hanging straight down and the basket or top was at an angle.

Pros: Cool scenery, out in the middle of nowhere, close to Fort Wayne. Baskets look to be homemade but the design looks very similar to Discatcher Pros. Basket placement is mostly in the woods with narrow fairways. Clean little campground with a lake.
Cons: No tee pad markings of any kind. When we played we just made up shots. Only found eight baskets with numbers on them. Why is this course labeled as an 18 hole? No map of any kind to tell you where to start. Fairways? are lined with thick brush and limbs above need to be trimmed. Baskets had weeds growing around them and most of them had chains that hung straight down as if links were missing towards the bottom. Many blowouts when putting. No signs to tell you where to park or where the course starts that we could find.
Other Thoughts: As of now this course is just baskets in the woods. Not sure if there are plans to layout official holes with where they are placed but if they do, the fairways need trimmed a bit. I could see this being a good winter course when the woods are easier to retrieve discs from if you get off the fairways. This course needs a lot of work
