Have a Strong Driver

Pros: This is a good course to work on drives. Lots of long shots from the pro tees. My first time here and I am a rookie (playing since May 13) played the pro tees and this course whipped me but good! (I am 50 and a heavy smoker!) I really enjoyed it though. A challenge for me, finished with a 74, yikes! I'll get better when I learn to throw a 400' drive! Some real elevation changes here and baskets you seem to need binoculars to find in distance, hole #17 I think is almost 700'. At the end of the round, it took all I had. Will be back for more, for sure. Love this game!
Cons: Pay to Play here. Questioned pro in shop about this and he said go ahead and play when you want there is no ranger and no one will question you. I am an honest sort and pony up the fiver anyways. Maintenance, maintenance, maintenance. Should be more than "bush hogging field 3 x per summer. What bush hog can't reach or get close too is left as "natural obstacles" or "disc eaters"...loose a disc here and you better have a GPS locator on it!!! Trees not trimmed in a long time, left with only smaller, ever-diminishing" openings. Guess that should've been under "Pros" as a difficulty challenge, installed by Mother Nature.
Other Thoughts: Again, with maintenance of (some) regularity, some minor upgrades, (nice concrete launch pads, better signs and some basic paths, benches (this is a long 18)in shade. How about a garbage can or two, hate to litter, but also hate to put in my bag.

Pros: The course is part of a two-course complex that features a two-basket practice area and the opportunity to rent golf carts. The course is in a very nice neighborhood, which serves as a pleasant backdrop. The single-use pay-per-play set up with a ranger insures that people won't be camped out on the fairways and that your discs won't get stolen.
There are a couple unique holes that are interesting. Hole number three is blind from the tee and offers several options including long turnover, backhand roller, and huge crush spike hyzer.
There are a few unique basket locations on mounds that make for challenging putting scenarios.
There is no schule and no chance of losing plastic.
The course does provide a fun experience, particularly if you like the opportunity to throw lots of full-power shots.
Cons: This is a crusher course and all the tees are off sugar sand or lumpy carpets. The director of golf told me that they don't have plans to install cement for another 2-3 years.
Calling this course "championship" is a complete misnomer. IMO, the blue tees are a very-long intermediate level track and the white tees are a regular-length intermediate track. I can envision the course record being around 42. Top pros will absolutely destroy the course. There is very little technical challenge.
Except for hole 17, the other "par 4's" are just really long par 3's. Throw a wide-open 400 ft. shot and then throw a lay-up under the basket.
The places that trees have been used, provide pinball-like "protection" near the baskets. The trees that come into play will separate equally good shots by luck.
There are many more good mounds that could have been used for basket locations.
There are plenty of trees that could have been incorporated to provide technical challenge. Most of the best wooded areas were not used properly.
There is a lot more property that could have stretched the layout a lot more to provide a real par 65 type course, but the space was not maximized.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a fantastic piece of property for a real championship disc golf course that could have been major championship calibre. The design, however, doesn't even come close.
It is a very sad thing to see such a great potential disc golf resource wasted.
Don't be a dirty discer, leave the course cleaner than the way you found it.
