First impressions not good
1 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: - Not many places to loose a disc.
- Park for the kiddies to play
Cons: - 2 holes play one basket.
- Indication of where 1st hole is located is lacking
- Unkept grounds
Other Thoughts: We got to the park and our first impression right off the bat was the high grass throughout the entire park, even around the play areas. We drove to a few parking areas and made an (albeit small) effort to locate hole 1. Walking a few holes to determine the start indicated that there wasnt a very logical progression of holes. The general feel for the place, combined with no clear indication where the course started, as well as the lack of logic all led to a very quick determination to move to the next course.

Don't waste your time
Pros: Not a lot of rough to worry about except for hole 4. The signs and new tee pads are also really nice and make it easier to locate the holes.
Cons: Where to start? The layout isn't in the least logical. After you get done with a hole, you start heading to the next logical one only to find that it's not the next one. For example, hole 15 is where 5 should be. You then have to search for a few minutes. Very confusing. Parts of the park are pretty swampy and remain wet regardless of recent rainfall. Broken shards of glass can be found everywhere, especially on the fairways, so watch your step. Some holes are only 195 feet and play way too easily and then all of a sudden there is a 500 ft par 5. If you like getting frustrated, try playing this course.
Other Thoughts: The brush on the course needs to be cleaned up. Since the course is new, the pathways aren't well defined and you find yourself tripping over branches and all sorts of stuff on the ground. One cause of concern I saw are the large piles of wood stacked up. These definitely need to be cleaned up before the snakes come out!

Pros: - Course is set in a small park that is completely filled with tall, bare trees of varying thicknesses. There is a path and a basketball court, but the disc golf is well separated.
- Almost every hole has a tough path to the basket, due to the large number of trees. A few holes do have well defined lines, with plenty of punishment for straying too far out of the fairways. Two noticeable RHBH anhyzers on #2 and #9, a forced hyzers on #4, and plenty of safe straight shots.
- #4 gives a different look; the fairway is bordered by thick rough on the right, and the forest on the left. Good shot placement is key, especially from the long tee.
- Elevation changes come into play on a few holes, like an elevated basket on #7 and a sloping fairway on #2.
- Excellent range of hole lengths, on either set of tees. If desired, you can have a 400', and 500' and a 600' hole in one round. Overall, the alternate tees add significant difficulty and change the lines up very well.
- A few protected baskets, there are places where a close shot is still obstructed, forcing a tough putt.
- Great teepads, baskets, and signage. Navigation is pretty easy, though the alternate teepads can be a tad confusing.
Cons: - There is not too much to the different holes, it is basically just trees upon trees. The land is relatively flat, and there a small ditch/creek, but otherwise the trees are the only real obstacles. Lots of holes feel the same, due to the constant terrain.
Other Thoughts: - This course makes fantastic use of the available land and terrain, with plenty of length and difficulty. Many holes from the longs require a great balance of length and accuracy; trees can provide some nasty kicks for any slightly errant shot. Still, the shots are pretty straightforward and can feel very similar. An experienced player will appreciate the tough longer holes, but will probably not find much excitement.
