Pros: Go big or GO HOME! Heavily hilly, the Ridge offers headaches, OMG shots, did you see that, & more! Beginners will garner high scores but smile for the opportunity to get them. It's great exercise & quite the hike, but the course's uniqueness & quality of golfers found there will make it all go down like a spoon full of sugar. Around Ed's house, baskets are scattered for putting games, warming up, & fellowship. Holes are well marked with surf boards in trees, signage, & neat statues. Build your own totem of fossils found on the hills! A gregarious dog named Hershey escorts each group, often accompanied by a friendly cat. The layout offers everything from an ace run to a 510ft. downhill shot over a barnyard, road, & powerlines. Honestly, the course has so much character to write about that I'd rather get off my butt & drive there than type it all bc it'd probably take less time. If you love disc golf, get in touch with somebody who knows the way or email Ed Burde. You'll be glad you did. If you play all the short tees, as of Nov (Semi-annual Battle at Burde Ridge), 27 holes existed with at least a 10 basket putt game area.
Cons: A goose bit my son on the bottom there, & I almost rolled down a hill laughing so hard. There's no helicopter pad.
Other Thoughts: If you don't like Burde Ridge, maybe Disc Golf isn't for you. Bring some refreshments to share & offer in thanks because Ed Burde & friends do a lot of work on the course, asking only for good company & fun times in return. Remember to high-five everyone in your group on the 1st & last hole...it's a rule.

Pros: Great course!!! Let me just say 300ft straight up hill. Love the course. Awesome course designer. Never packed. Great challenges, from long to short holes, elevation, tight and wide open shots. Well kept. This course has it all!!!
Cons: Carpet tee pads, not horrible but do prefer concrete.
Other Thoughts: If you have a chance to play it, DO!!!! It is a private course though so find out how to get permission and GO!!!

So that's what its like to have a course at your house.
Pros: This course is sick! There are long, short, uphill, and downhill shots. Also there are a few shots that run across hills. If you dream of playing a challenging course to take strokes out of your game at any of the park courses in TN, this is the place to do it. Hole lengths range from 450ft to 160ft. This is a private course, but if you know Ed, I'm sure he wouldn't mind if you dropped by and played a round with him, if you get in touch with him before hand.
Cons: Those hills are gnarly. A guy in my group during the tourney, barely greased the front of the basket, and that thing almost rolled down to the barn. Hole 5 is definitely the toughest hole. It's 300ft from tee to pin, and at least 100ft uphill.
Other Thoughts: This course is definitely challenging, but the most fun I've ever had playing a couple rounds of disc golf. Also the owner, Ed Burde is one of the nicest, stand up pros out there, as he hosted this 2 round event. Can't wait til' next year's battle.
