Pros: Scenic course with well-manicured fairways, tee pads are simple with just a board in the ground at the front. It is quite easy to remove the flag at each tee and replace when done throwing, takes 2 seconds total. Each hole has something unique about it, especially in how most of the pins are either guarded or somehow made interesting.
It's a neat course, worth checking out for sure if you're in the area or playing boondocks farms or mcculloch park in muncie.
Hole 1 is a tough uphill shot with the basket tucked behind a tree at the end.
Hole 2 is a monster 501 ft shot straight down a beautiful fairway. Trees and OB on the right, fairway slopes down and to the left, then up again for 100 ft to the pin.
Hole 3 forces a shot over the corner of the lake and the levee, then it drops off and goes down behind a 30 ft wide set of trees/brush. There is a hole through the brush that rewards a great shot with a birdie attempt.
Hole 4 is across another corner of the lake but is much more in play as the basket is down a narrow fairway with OB water on the left and OB field on the right. Ending on the hanging basket makes this hole a wonderful but possible 2, but more likely a good 3 or circle 4.
Hole 5 is a little down hill with an OB road on a hill behind the basket, and even a tunnel that will eat an errant tee shot.
Hole 6 is a long uphill shot with a fence in front of the basket guarding it from most up shots. It must be played smartly to ensure a good 3.
Hole 7 is uphill again with some guard trees and a large tree behind the basket that will gobble up some discs.
Hole 8 is a nice flowing down hill shot between two more hungry trees that are about 15 ft apart, terrain drops off behind the basket.
Hole 9 is a decision shot with lines to the right and to the left, basket is guarded by a tree and is in a neat rock garden, making it a very challenging and memorable finishing putt!
Cons: Hole 5 has no real obstacles in the fairway yet, but I am told that plans are being concocted to change that.
On that campground's busiest weekend of the year, labor day, there will likely be a few people playing chucker-golf on the overlapping courses. If you don't go on labor day weekend, you probably wont see a single person playing chucker golf. Worst case scenario: you have to wait a few minutes for them to be out of the way.
Other Thoughts: Disc golfers need to play with caution sometimes as people stay at (and sometimes walk around) the campground.

Pros: In a private campground with many other activities for the family. Very friendly staff with the office having discs' for sale & rent (Innova only,about 3/4 dozen,different plastics) Scorecards with maps. Other stuff for the family include Camping,Chucker golf,Volleyball,Water activities. The course plays on a gentle slope,with small rolling mounds a Levee and Pond. Mature trees with underbrush on one hole. Well maintained grass. Baskets are strategically placed behind & between and hanging from & around trees. New Discatchers that have a set of staggered inner set of chains. Tees are marked by 3/4' tall flags, Red (Pros) & Blue (Ams). All have distance and par. Hole #3,4 are the two best on the course. #3 Pro (407') Tee over a corner of the pond and Levee to the discatcher that's downhill and slightly behind mature trees. #3 Am (269') Tee from on top of the Levee. #4 Pro (351') & Am (280') Tee from on top of the Levee to end. The hanging basket is between mature trees with underbrush. A decent mix of holes,for the land they had to work with. Shows newbies the possibilities of hole design.
Cons: The course plays along with a "Chucker Golf" course!? (Go google it,I did)This is a lawsuit waiting to happen! The #1 pro tee you must throw OVER the C.G. #1 tee,#2 "green" AND #3 tee?! #2 pro tee plays along with C.G. #6? fairway with the discatcher behind the C.G. Green. #6 has a new man-made wood wall with 5/6 post's that are 3/4' taller than the wall.I guess they are to be used as an obstacle,or they just haven't cut them down yet. The wall has a window you are to putt thru. To me,this makes the hole feel cheesy. Kinda like a mini-golf/putt-putt gimmick....wind mill,clowns mouth. #5 hanging basket is to far off the ground. I'm 6'4" and the bottom of the basket was just over my head! They do have a pole nearby to get your disc,I hope no one takes it. I'm thinking it's that far off the ground because they don't want kids using it as a swing? If it's going to stay there atleast cut the pole below the basket. Either way it's a lawsuit waiting to happen. #7 Pro (341') plays over another C.G. Green. #8 & #9 also play along with the Chucker golf course. #9 discatcher is placed slightly behind a mature tree with a low canopy shot in a rock garden.The limb needs trimming,IMO. Grass tees with 2x4 as markers. The flags are installed at the end of the board. That made think I was going to hit it on my drives. But, they are only 3/4' tall. The sharing of two different sports in the same area! The Chucker Golf or the Disc golf course needs to be moved. With newbies playing two new sports in a small area like this.....it's a lawsuit waiting to happen. Concrete tees,Trash cans and a few Benches would be nice. But you could take a break on the Levee.
Other Thoughts: I played here on The Sunday of Labor day weekend,within a week after it was installed. A "Chamber of Commerce" type of day. Blue skies,80*,low humidity,little breeze. As you stop in at the office to pay your $3 fee,for all-day discin' get something to drink,chips. Bathrooms available. If your in the area,playing McCulloch DGC in Muncie it's worth a trip to play. It's only 30 minutes away. Or if you bring the family for a weekend of camping get a few rounds in each day. With the "Chucker golf" course mixed in with Disc golf I wouldn't come to play only this course. If you do maybe not on a holiday weekend, better chance of no Chucker golf players.
