Pros: Location, Location, Location. It's right by the main road going up Signal Mountain and has a great view of the mountain.

The course is brand new so the pins are as well. They are all discatcher and are in pristine condition. Each tee is now concrete and are of generous size. PVC pipes in the ground mark the distance to the pin. Arrow on the baskets point you in the general direction of the next tee.

Even though the holes are a bit short on this course, trees come into play on most holes. Accuracy is key to playing well here, not big arms.

Most of the shots are straight but a few require an anhyzer or rhfh throw to get close to the basket. Signature hole would be hole 4. Downhill ~300' that forces you through an 8' opening between two huge trees.

A few holes have a mando so it adds a small degree of difficulty to the course. However, since there are no signs, just a few small yellow flags, they are hard to spot the first time through.

Wooded holes are being cleared out and the brush is getting smaller which is great for those errant throws.

Easy access to local highways.

Hiking trails nearby.
Cons: Holes tend to go back and forth and its pretty easy to shoot into another fairway.

Small parking lot. 10 cars max.
Other Thoughts: Overall great exposure to the sport.

Since I work about 5 miles down the road, I'm here 3-4 times a week for my lunch break.
