Pros: The baskets are in good condition. Grounds are actually well manicured. Given the amount of space for the course, it is well utilized.
A pro for me: I had my girls with me, so while they played on the playground for about 30 minutes, I was able to shoot 18 and have them in sight the entire time.
Cons: Any guidance would be helpful. There were orange marking flags set up, so I assumed these were the tee pads. I never found the #2 basket, so played a safari hole, which I figured was the same distance.
Be careful when shooting for the baskets along the back of the property - by the thirdbase line of the ball field, which you throw over often. There is a creek in the back and very thick brush - looks like you can easily lose a disc. The aforementioned parking lot can be an issue, since the longer holes parallel this.
Other Thoughts: Given that it is on church property, I give them many kudos for the effort.
The prior review mentioned baskets not being up, but they are up now (as of 8/10).
There are some unique shots - through/around a shelter, around a backstop, putting over a fence, #9/18 is surrounded by power line poles and trees.
Barely any shade and it gets hot, so bring sunblock.
I was talking with a parishioner afterward and he didn't know much, other than there were more planned improvements. Is this going to rival Idlewild? No. It's a small course, that is really a 9-hole course, nestled on private property that the church is graciously allowing the public to use. If you are in town with family and want a quick getaway to get your disc golf fix, then this course fits the bill.

Is it gone?
Pros: Hey,at least there is a course in the golf mecca that is Hilton Head Island. 2 sets of tees for the 9 holes. Short, technical, plays through a church parking lot and small park. Some tee's are in and around parking lot on center islands.
Cons: Difficult to navigate. Can't tell which baskets represent the 2nd set of 9 from the dual tee's. Too short. Rumor has it that baskets are being pulled out soon.
Other Thoughts: Get another one Hilton Head! I aced a hole here but it turned out to be a black one. When I approached the basket I was aiming for it had the wrong # on the basket. Damn!

Pros: It's the only place to play within 20 miles.
Cons: Nearly impossible to find some holes, unseen water comes into play on some holes with a slight overthrow, holes cross over each other constantly making it a nightmare if anyone else is playing (highly unlikely).
Other Thoughts: Most of the holes are pretty short and pretty open if you are looking for somewhere to get warmed up before attempting somewhere harder. You're best off just making up your own holes if you can't find the signs quickly
