Pros: Dedicated park space, which is rare around these parts. Well maintained with thought put into hole locations and multiple pin placements per hole. While kind of in the middle of nowhere, there is sufficient parking.

This course encourages (and sometimes requires) different shots to play well. Backhand, forehand/flick, thumber/tomahawk, roller, rescue shots, and putts with elevation changes are ALL part of your round here. It will challenge you but you will enjoy it.

OB exists here and there, but it's just there to keep play out of certain areas and isn't set up to punish players.
Cons: If you are a beginner or out of shape this course will brutalize you. Most of the woods holes have plenty of trees to contend with and plenty of stickers/thorns to shred your legs when you go looking for wayward discs. The back nine involves a few treks up and down the mountain which can be challenging to walk.

Many of the baskets are missing flags and/or have shredded flags, so the baskets can be challenging to find for a first-timer since they are the older Mach 3 type with no bright spots to catch your eye. Could do with some new flags or bright pink tape around the top of the baskets to make them stick out in the woods.
Other Thoughts: Popular course on the weekends, so if you are the social type this is a decent chance to meet up with other disc golfers. Please pick up after yourself; I saw far too many discarded beer cans for a course like this.

If there are mandos here I couldn't find them. A couple of holes look like they might have them, but nothing sticks out to indicate that.

Pros: Good hole variety, all tees had nice rubber pads, great signs.
Cons: Tough to find since it looks like you're going down someones driveway to get to the course. Keep going down the "driveway" and you'll get there :)
Other Thoughts: Most holes play in either open fields or the woods. I'd say it's a 50/50 mix of the two. The course played fairly short although there were some longer holes to be found.

This was a pretty fun course but I can't say it's worth a really long drive just to play this one course. If you're passing close by and manage to find it then it may be worth a stop to play a quick 18.
