Disc Golf Pinball...
Pros: Two nice paver stone tee boxes per hole.
Some Fun hole layouts. ( # 8 long is a fun shot from and elevated tee box)
The course is new so the baskets are all in excellent condition.
Cons: Not enough hole variation, heavily wooded holes dominate the course. No individual hole signage or direction signs leading to the next hole. No trash cans on the course. The course is still new and needs some TLC on fairway clearings.
Other Thoughts: In my opinion this course has too many trees in the way. (its like trying to throw through a minefield). Some trees in the fairway are good but this course is a little overkill.
Overall this course is good, & when finished it could be great.
I would recommend this course especially when its finished.
Just to help those that havent been yet, hole #1 hugs the field edge to the left. The basket is just barely into the tree line. From the #1 far tee box you can see the #9 basket off to the right at the tree line.

Going to be a good course!
Pros: Awesome tiled brick teepads
2 pads per hole..
nice variation in shots needed, particularly for a 9 hole (right now) course.
Decent amount of risk/reward
Cons: brand new course, so the shule is deadly...
Lots of "ghost limbs" that will knock a disc down, and the navigation is a little iffy.
There are no signs for the teepads...tho experienced golfers should be able to find their way around the course... multiple tee pads can cause confusion....and the only real number markers on the holes appear to be red canisters marking the future alt basket positions
crazy amount of yellow Jackets, poison oak/ivy/sumac, and a plethora of thorns (some particularly long an pointy)...all in the fairway...
Hole 9 seems just like an afterthought...possibly because it's to be expanded to 18 holes... but as it is... it is a lack luster finish to a nice challenging round.
Other Thoughts: Shumpert was an interesting journey...
walking past the survey map (only course map) leads you to somewhere between holes 3 and 4...
The "map" says hole one is by the kiosk...(which hasn't been built yet)
but once you get on the right track.. Shumpert provided a fun and challenging round...
typical "new course" downsides of thick shule, and un-cleared fairways detracted from the immediate experience, but when it breaks in, and starts getting plenty of traffic (which it will once word gets out)...and they add tee signs...this will be the best course in the area...
Definite play if in the area.
Looking forward to coming back here next year to see how it develops!
