Pros: -Variety of uphill/downhill shots is good on back 9
-a few longs holes, a few short holes.
-well kept course, normally nicely mowed for the feel of a fairway/rough layout.
Cons: - Tough to find tees.
-I missed 2 holes when i played alone the first time, and couldn't find blues a couple more times.
-Quite busy park on church property. Normally other activities going on, including the Cross County Path that zig zags thoughout the course.
Other Thoughts: Overall a fun little course. Not super challenging, but a peaceful round. Fun to play and try out new discs, since there is no risk of losing one.

Pros: Great course. The terrain is well used. Baskets are great. Signage is pretty good. 18 holes with Am and Pro tees.
Decent mix, several holes have room for big throws, several holes and shorter, some areas are open, some have used trees well.
Cons: Lack of concrete pads is the biggest challenge. Some have been poured already. When the pads are completed it will be much better. Would also like to see some more trees in the mix.
Other Thoughts: Really nice course, one of the best in north central Indiana. Once the tees are in, it will be excellent!

Pros: *Course has nice signs and baskets
*Alternate tee areas and basket positions
*Elevation comes into play, but mostly on holes 10-18
*A few holes with the challenge of finding a line between some tighter trees
*Many holes were long for those who enjoy airing it out
*Very nice and inviting facility with other activities
*Course is well taken care of and manicured
*Restrooms (porta-potties) located in a few spots throughout the course
Cons: *Grass tees, although I don't mind them, they are difficult to find. They are identified by two little 3" circles flush with the ground, making it difficult to find. However, most tee areas were flat or nearly flat despite being on "the hill."
*No trash cans on the couse
*Very little challenge other than distance at this course, most holes were mostly open
Other Thoughts: It was nice to play a course with some length, but that's mostly all this course had to offer, there really were no technically demanding shots. The elevation in the hill added some diversity and of course all the downhill shots were fun, it was the ones coming back up that were a challenge, mostly because it included a tough walk up the hill.

If anything, this course will give your legs and arm a workout, it will most likely not improve your game to much unless you need to work on really long putts (50-90')as most holes are long enough to leave a long putt for a player with a big arm.

The course is only 5 minutes from Dillon, so you should definitley check it out. Allow yourself for probably an hour and a half (solo) for the first time. You will spend some time searching for tees and the hike up and down the hill is tiring.

I find it hard to believe this course is nearly rated a 4. It does not have the TECHNICALLITY required, in my opinion, to be worthy of a 4. Some of the these reviewers need to get out and play a championship calibur course and see what a 4.5 or 5 rated course really is like...that's just my 2 cents. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice course with nice features, but it's not
Phenomenal.

Pros: -great area to play at
-land is very hilly therefore lots of elevation changes
-variety in shot choices (blind, rhbh, rhfh favored, rollers etc)
-small shop with an innova display at the host Church
-Evergreen trees on one hole
-well maintained
Cons: -Some tees are hard to see in grass
-several open air holes that on windy days could be frustrating
-some hole/next tees are very close together which could be dangerous if groups are playing back-to-back and not paying attention
Other Thoughts: One thing I would like more of is trees, just to cut down on open air. Just a great course in general though that still seems very young. Backing church seems to have a lot of money to spend as well, could imagine more holes coming in future.
