Pros: I don't like the "bad" adjective attached to this 0.5 rating. This course succeeds in its design to be a place to introduce kids to disc golf. I rate it a 0.5 because I have to compare to all other courses I've played -- and it's not designed for me! Pinewood is a "putt and putt" course located in a small park in front of an elementary school.
+ Perfect course to introduce a kid to the game.
+ Easy navigation.
+ Good baskets.
+ Ace runs on every hole! The longest hole is 220 feet. All other holes are much shorter, 70 feet to 160 (?) feet.
Cons: Again, great course for kids, but here are the cons for adults:
- Exceptionally short, wide open, and easy. No challenge.
- A couple holes are relatively close to the road or parking lot. Not really problem because you're likely only throwing a putter (or even *putting* a putter off the tee), but I can see a newby throwing an errant shot to the street.
Other Thoughts: This is an easy one to knock out, if you're a collector like me. I played it in 12 minutes. Don't worry about bringing a bag. Unless you need a different disc for 220 feet, all you need is one straight-flying putter. Go for the "perfect round" -- 9 under par. I hit 8 out of 9 bridies, but felt like I left a *few* shots on the course! Kind of disappointing not to get at least one ace. Play it a time or two, and you'll get one!

Pros: Sweet tee signs, nice baskets, kind of nifty basket positions considering what they had to work with. Nice chill spot to air out the putters or if you want a little challenge a lid round. Ample parking. Flows well, easy navigation. Quick.
Cons: Very short holes. Some of the holes are really just longish putts. Mostly wide open in a field but some trees do spice it up a bit.
Natural tees and some are angled funny.
Literally right beside a school (duh) so no double fisting Olde English probably.
Other Thoughts: If you need to host an Ace Race or work on your putt & approach game, this is your course. Surprisingly more popular than I thought it would be. Great course for kids, uncoordinated women and complete n00bs. You could probably safari some longer, more interesting holes if have the course to yourself. The basket locations are better than just "baskets in a field" kind of 9 holers b/c they can punish you with road OB and trees if you're overzealous on a few of them. But it's a highly polished practice course and in the grand scheme of things I had to rate it harshly.
