Pros: This is a good quick round course. Good for practice on mid range to short long range with one short technical hole(8). Can play 3 or 4 rounds in an hour or two
Cons: Not very difficult and can be busy at times
Other Thoughts: This is certainly a good learner course and is fun to play quick rounds.

Pros: The Boltz course has some nice challenges for those who have just started playing. The distances are middle-school appropriate with a couple of longer holes for difficulty. the course generally follows a small creek (up one side and down the other) so water is almost always in play. For a school course the targets are well maintained.It occupies an open-space between a residential area and Boltz Jr. High so it is a comfortable place to have a nice walk.
Cons: The open space area is just that. One couldn't say that the space is "maintained," but it isn't awful. The creek water is pretty still which makes it creepy and buggy. Bring DEET! There are a couple of places on the creek where the marshy vegetation is very thick and discs can get lost. It is frustrating to lose a disc there because the water is only a couple of feet deep at most. The dense vegetation makes it dark and difficult to navigate. School hours limit playing time to late afternoon except for summer months. Sure, you could play Boltz, but Edora is a mile away! Go there.

Of course, a 2/5 course is better than a 4/5 cubicle.

Pros: Fun little course. Great for speed rounds, could finish under par in less than five minutes. Deceivingly(sp?)longer than it looks. Another great safari 9 hole.
Cons: Wide open, for the most part. Tees are wicked midget size (I'm 6'5"), just have to find a clear run-up.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun course. You should get some sort of a map or local to show you the layout.

Pros: I really enjoy playing this course, one can get a round in when on a tight schedule. This course has enough variety to make you come back fairly often. Good mix of challenging and easy holes with a drainage creek and large trees throughout. Blind shot on 1 and hard to see pins on a couple others add to the challenge. Decent length for a Junior High that lets the drivers work a little bit on a couple holes.
Cons: Short tee pads and mildly rugged. School hours inhibit play, but I hear they don't mind too much. No major cons otherwise. Watch out anytime a stray shot lands in someone's backyard, please be courteous when retrieving discs. Houses are next to the course on holes 5,6,7, and 8. Not too big of a concern though. Don't throw in the tennis courts on 1 and 2 since the fence is high and the court is sometimes locked. No facilities.
Other Thoughts: Have to say it is a fun course, and I'm glad to see it's still there. Great alternative on weekends when Edora gets slammed with foot traffic.

Pros: The Boltz JHS course is a more honest course than a series of ace runs. There is a collection of mature trees and a creek that keep the course interesting. Its good for a quick round, or for when Edora is packed. During the summer, there is a ton of parking. I wish my school had a course, that would have been awesome.
Cons: I started my round by teeing off on the wrong pad. Thank God a car load of locals came by and saved me. Many times I prepared to watch people tee off and think that the basket was the other direction. There are no course markings at all. The tee pads are short, made for jr. high kids, but the holes actually have length, that a jr high kid probably couldn't reach. They (or a rouge somebody) should mark the tee pads. That would go a long way to improving this course. A simple number and arrow would make a world of difference.
Other Thoughts: The course isn't as useless as the description and Olorin review leaves you to believe, however it's not far off. Mostly open and flat. Well manicured with a creek, yet unmarked.

Pros: a course on school property is potentially a great way to introduce Junior High kids to disc golf.
Cons: The course is extremely frustrating to navigate since there are no tee signs, or numbers on any baskets. It's hard to even find the tee pads. I later found a crude map online and that helped finding my way immensely. The course is completely flat and mostly all open with few obstacles. The holes are probably too long for Junior high students, most of whom would be beginners.
Other Thoughts: This was an Eagle Scout project.

Course level = White
My rating = 0.6 out of 10
