Pros: A good mix between tight technical and open bombs. A great scenic walk thru the woods and orchards. Hole 3 is awesome. Shoot off a cliff and over a ravine. The back of the green drops off. The first open hole is only 406 but plays up a huge hill. The second open shot 610 down a huge hill and green drops off hard. Just a great course with a brewery at the start, middle and end. Great people that ran it and great craft beer.
Cons: Not much but some of the tees need a little work.
Other Thoughts: Just one of the greatest disc golf experiences I've ever had. Good beer + good disc = awesomeness!

Pros: Great diversity. Well marked. Tight woods sections that have been cleaned up very well. Easy to find disks if you throw off line. Open fields. Great use of elevation. Challenging but incredibly fun. At a brewery! Figure 8 setup means you start, mid and end at the parking lot/brewery. Great for a quick 9 holes. No walking in mud here. They have raised walkways over all low/wet areas.
Cons: A good course map would be great. They had a sign at the brewery of future hole markers just like pyramids. That will be great. I received a hand drawn map from the bar tender at the brewery. Everything worked out. Front 10 are really easy to follow as long as you start off with hole 1 into the woods. The basket in front of the t box is hole 10.
Other Thoughts: Holes 1-5 are in the woods. Hole 3 is great. You throw off a cliff. My favorite hole. Cross the road for hole 6 and 7. Open field shots. Hole 7 is a great power hole. Let it fly. Hole 8 was the muddiest but they had a great raised walkway. Cross the street again for hole 9 and 10. Gets a little tricky. Go past the brewery and up to the kids play ground for hole 11. Orchard shot. Pretty cool. Good use of the orchard for holes 11, 15-18. After the basket at 11, walk ahead to the woods. You'll find hole 12 going back into the woods.
Overall, great place to bring the family on the weekend. Apple picking, petting zoo, play area and I read live music on the weekends. Looking foward to playing here again!

Pros: The course: Figure 8 layout, using the brewery as a center point. Varied/mixed course utilizing elevations, woods, & orchards. There are some open bombs, tight tecnical shots, decent risk/reward's and everything in between. There's a couple easy birdies, offset by a couple near-impossible par 3's, and a nice challenging course all in all.
And again, it has it's own micro-brewery on-site, and how cool is that.
Cons: The tee's are not improved, no benches or trash bins to speak of, some of the rough areas are extremely rough, the tee signs aren't the clearest, it's field limited parking, and you might have brewery/orchard crowds to throw thru.
Other Thoughts: With apple picking, petting zoo, brewery tours, and other activities I can imagine this place getting packed. On the flip side, this offers a non-throwing signifigant other or friends something to do while you squeeze in a round.
Without a course map, it's a little tough to find your way around, so here's a couple pointers:
From the parking lot, the path to Tee 1 is thru the sign and into the woods. 1-9 takes you thru the woods, crosses arnold rd, and ends by the "shack".
#10 is located across the driveway from the parking lot.
#11 tee is by the petting zoo and shoots toward the orchard. #12 tee is straight ahead from 11's basket. 11-18 makes a loop counter clockwise and ends by the large pavillion (road side, not putter basket). By this point you know the tee signs to look for, they are all marked.
