Pros: The course plays through the lower part of the Thousand Pines camp. This course seems to have been designed for the younger campers, and is a nice complement to the hillier and longer upper course. There are several spots on this course with great views, and the course seemed clean and taken care of. The layout is easy to follow, and because it uses the same 9 baskets in both directions you can start and end anywhere.
Cons: The course is not designed to have multiple groups playing at the same time. With the same baskets being shot at from both directions, you could have some conflicts. Also, all the tees are within 10-20 feet of the baskets, definitely a safety issue without proper supervision. Several holes play through or near other camp activities as well.

This course has great shots for young campers with no disc golf experience, but I rate courses based on the same scale across the board. That means this one is too short and doesn't have enough challenge or variety to score highly for me, but that doesn't at all mean that I think it missed it's intended audience.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will have a blast here, the holes are short but have enough trees to present some challenges. More experienced players won't find much to test their skills here. Don't go out of your way for this one unless you just want to check off a couple courses or you're in the area and you want to introduce someone to the sport.
