Pros: Good Pin visibility, a couple of amazing holes, a lot of holes that are open but with trees only in the most challenging locations, scorecards are on the side of the sign next to the first tee.
Cons: The holes in general are too long for amateurs to get good scores on the course. Easy to lose disc on the ninth and get forced to go swimming for it on the sixteenth

Best Course In The State
Pros: I designed and installed this course with the help of the River Valley Disc Golf Association. The land is owned by the Corps of Engineers and they were nice enough to let us put a course there. However, with any federal property there were a lot of restrictions on where the teeboxes, baskets and fairways could go. (Everyone is looking to sue these days) My goal was to prived a good mix of long/short and open/wooded holes with all sorts of different shot shaping required. I also wanted a course that our disc golf community could "grow into". By that I mean as disc golf continues to grow here, discs fly faster and farthur, and our players continue to get better, the course would still be challenging. There is some really awesome scenery and wildlife in the are and I tried to create a good use of the elevation and natural features as well..
Cons: Be on the look out for cyclists on the bike trail that runs through hole 7. Because of the limitations we had (mainly liability issues) we were restricted on where we could go.
Other Thoughts: This was the first course in Arkansas built on federal property. Because of that there were lots of restrictions on where the baskets, teepads and fairways could be placed. This affected how the course could be layed out. Given the restrictions from the Corps of Engineers, it is a really great course. A good challenge for most disc golfers. There is water and pavilions near the first tee and the course is always in great shape.

Great New Course
Pros: Love the the trail going through the woods and the hole up on top of the hill. Also the hole in which you aim for the Arkansas River is Beautiful!
Cons: The T-pads narrow, not a bad thing I guess, just different. I supose it saved a little money and definitely better than dirt.
Other Thoughts: Be careful when shooting across run off pond from quarry on hole 16. A big thanks to whom got this course put in!!! Thank you.
