Mt. Gilead D.G.C.
Pros: This course gives a variety of shots. If people like long shots there are 4 over 400 feet. I think the course has a good balance of different shots. Hole 5 is one of the hardest 260 foot shots around.
Cons: Does not have concrete or paved surfaces for all the tee's. But it will get there.
Other Thoughts: This course is a good all around course for all player levels.

Home Sweet Home
Pros: - Baskets are in great shape
- Variety of challenges
- Property is well taken care of
- Good for players just starting out as well as seasoned players
- Many birdie opportunities to help recover from a bogey or two
- Scorecard has a map on the back with a satellite view of the course
- The flow of the course is smooth and ends with number 18 right back near the first tee
- Plenty of parking
Cons: - Some tees are in the grass (concrete tees are planned)
- No tee signs (these are planned too...after the concrete tees)
- Standing water in some areas after a hard rain
- No restrooms available
Other Thoughts: I play in the Morgan County Disc Golf Club at this course. Everyone who plays in league events are fun to be with and make it enjoyable to play. With this being my home course, I play it at least once a week and sometimes more. I've played this course both as a beginning novice and now an intermediate player and still find it challenging and fun. Sometimes you have to wait for runners or walkers on the path. But that is rare when I play. I highly recommend this course.

Great 18 Hole Course
3 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: - Shot Variety: Great mix of open and heavily wooded holes.
- Flow: Course had a great flow and was easy to navigate. Next to hole 1 is a box that contains scorecards/map for the course. Use this to help locate the tees.
Tee spots: 5 Throw spots are marked on a concrete. Hole 1 starts on the concrete near the trash dumpster. Holes 2, 6, 7, and 8 are marked on a walking path. Holes 3-5 Loop through the woods (same entrance/exit into the woods) and have dirt throw spots marked in the ground. The marker for hole 8's Tee was moved so that it is a more efficient hole. Hole 9 is on top of the mound and also has a dirt throw spot.
Challenge: No two holes were really the same. More of a beginner course than a intermediate course but there is still challenge on most holes (distance, trees, wind, etc). Holes 3-5 require accuracy.
- Room to Expand: There is talk about this course expanding to 18 holes and there is more than enough room to do so.
Cons: - Soggy - This course had standing water when I played it leaving it entirely soggy. The wooded holes had much standing water along the path with Hole 3 being underwater. Fortunately I had boots on.
- Only one throw spot per hole - With the way the holes are marked here, it would not be much extra to add alternate throw spots to each hole. It would also add variety.
- Use of woods - I feel like they could add some more holes in the wooded portion of the course. Hole 1 would be much more challenging if it were placed into the tree line.
- Walking Path - With any course that follows a walking path, it can add wait time to the holes (See Northwestway DGC).
- The open holes were extremely open. Trees were not an issue because there were none on some holes. Very easy to save par.
- Hole 5 - I agree that luck can make or break this hole. With exception of the curved walking path, there is not much of a fairway. It could use less trees.
Other Thoughts: I specifically made a trip to the opposite side of town just to play this course and Plainfield's course. I enjoyed this course more than The Master's at Calvary Baptist Course although it was a tough decision.
This course expanded to 18 holes. It was a very enjoyable course with moderate difficulty. It does need dual tees to add to the variety of this course. Dual tees and more planted trees would lift this course to a 3.5 or a 4 in my opinion. I do not have an issue with dirt or natural throw pads as long as they are not muddy like they were during my trip there.
This course is very user friendly and has potential to improve. I was leaning between 3 and 4. Because of the wooded holes I felt that it was better than decent/typical. It isn't the best 18 hole course that I have ever played but it was very still a very nice course. Looking forward to playing this course again.
