Pros: It has some long holes with good obstacles; but yet still has good tight holes. the water hazards are challenging; but not overwhelming. It is a good course for professionals and beginners alike. It is a challenging course; but a lot of fun.
Cons: It is built in a park so a few hole run by a road, which makes you have to wait for cars to go by sometime. It also has a few walking paths so you have to be careful about pedestrians.

 Great Hole Variety and Nice Views of Geiger Lake

Pros: Decent bit of elevation change on some holes. A great mix of open, tight, and all shades in between of tree densities. Pretty views of Geiger Lake with a few baskets near the water's edge, including the signature peninsula hole #4. I used just about every disc in my bag at some point, as the course is not repetitive at all and each hole is unique. The water is shallow enough to retrieve discs a couple of feet in.
Cons: A few of the teeboxes aren't the greatest and not marked so well, but they're good enough for most players. A little bit of dense shule here and there, but not much.
Other Thoughts: This course was thoroughly re-designed following Hurricane Katrina in 2005. I think the previous reviews are talking about the transitional course that was here for a few years after the storm that was not as good as the current design.

The current design has a couple of holes that are rough because they are new holes cut from thick woods, but I am sure they will clean up nicely.

The pro tees are a good challenge for pros and the am tees are just right for ams in my opinion.

If you like good, hole-in-the-wall type BBQ I recommend Rose's BBQ which is 9 miles north of PBJohnson on Hwy 49. The turkey leg is the best!

Pros: The course has a nice variety of different holes. There are some fairly open throws but also some heavily wooded ones too. Water is in play with 2 throws over water and there are also elevation changes on many holes. there is one hole with an elevated basket (top of a mound) There are nice facilities there such as camping, a kid's play area, swimming area, and a proshop/office with restrooms. they sell discs there too.

Cons: The new holes don't have good tee pads yet. The office was totally out of discs when I was there. Navigation could be a real issue for a 1st timer. The course used to have more holes (23), now 18.
Other Thoughts: This is a really good course and lots of fun to play. I do hate that they lost some of the other holes with the redesign. I hope there is a chance they will add more to the course later.
