Great new course
Pros: Course has some very unique holes - hole 4's basket on top of a stump, hole's 5 awesome down hill drive, hole 9's tough drive and decision off of the tee....hole 13's nice defined fairway, hole 16's short but challenging two shot par 4, and hole 18's dangerous drive over the road. The course offers some great flick shot opportunities. The baskets are also top of the line. Machs are infinitely better than Discatchers in terms of durability and the orange coated paint make them easy to be seen. The course is challenging and forces you to stay on the fairway. There are some nice big bomber holes (hole 14 comes to mind) but the course is more about keeping it in the fairway, making pars, and playing for the duece on the holes you can score on. The course is the definition of risk/reward, which I love.
Cons: All courses have something to be desired so I will highlight a few things here:
-Some of the greens are very tight and offer small putting areas. You may be 10 to 15 feet from the basket but be behind a tree. Over time this will be less of an issue as the course gets played more and things get beat in but at this point in time some of the greens are a little tight
-The rough is a bit rough, but once again this will fade over time and become normal
-A few of the holes on the back nine are a bit dangerous in terms of the usage of the road. Make sure to watch hole 15, as the tee shot is blind to anyone driving or walking from the left. If this tee was moved 15 feet to the right this problem would be solved. 17 and 18 also have the road coming into play and could potentially use some tweaking to get the road out of play, but as long as disc golfers are watching and being smart this shouldn't be a problem. With that in mind, disc golfers are not always watching and being smart....
Other Thoughts: This is a great new addition to the greater Peoria area of disc golf courses. I would highly recommend this course. You'll get a nice challenge with some good deuce opportunities if you bide your time!
