Pros: It requires many different approaches and methods. even though this course is out in the open, it is still different and memorable. i like how you can loop it back in with wellspring to add variation.
Cons: the lack of woodiness would be a con if it wasnt for wellspring.
Other Thoughts: its good and fun. youre gonna have to be able to tomahawk becouse one hole needs a tomahawk shot to get through the cover

Pros: 27 years old, Cedarock is still the course to play. Open as a golf course should be and completely convertible to an alternate layout, both configurations will test you on distance and direction. For a recreational player, Cedarock will let you break par and even get an ace, but can also be a stern taskmaster if you take her for granted, especially in the short (red/blue) set-up
Cons: May be too open and easy for pros and advanced ams in the original short pins positions, but the gold layout will test the best of the best, especially if you rate it as a straight par 3, as we did for over 20 years. Some of the posted pars on the nice new tee signs seem arbitrarily easy for pro and advanced players.. And some of the holes could use more than just the one tee sign, as the tees are a ways apart. Tee pad color assignment needs correction on Hole 14, as that is the course's only design flaw.
Other Thoughts: It was on this course, with only my pre-patent number, dirt brown Aero that I parked it on the original number 5, which teed from what is now the #5 blue pad and went to a now extinct green, that made me think out loud that maybe I could play this sport without stinking it up.

Great Open Course
Pros: Nearly every hole on this course was a long throw over a field, so it really gives you a chance to work on your long drives. That being said, not every hole was the same. There was a surprisingly good mix of leftward, rightward, and straight shots. Elevation comes into play quite a bit on this course and further adds to the variety.
Multiple tees for every hole were a great edition. Any skill level player can play here (though, even the red tees might prove tough for a weak arm). There are also multiple pin placements that change every so often, further adding to the already great variety. Really nice signs have been added to every hole. They are top-notch, denoting the par, the distance, every tee placement, and the possible basket placements, as well as a next tee arrow. This makes the course very easy to navigate.
The baskets were nicely labeled with big signs on the tops that denoted the hole number. There were many other park amenities here (including another 18 hole disc golf course). There is also a little shop at the park that sells snacks, drinks, and DISCS.
Cons: The tees were often very very small. Far too small to do a nice run-up on. Some of the other reviewers who are obviously locals have jumped in to defend this, saying that it is to help you work on your footwork. Maybe that's true, but I still feel that some of these holes are so long that they require just a wee bit more room on the tee-off. On the weekends the park can be crowded (but this is also a testament to how great it is), so you may have to wait at some of the holes (luckily there are benches).
Other Thoughts: My favorite NC course. I've played courses from Charlotte to Rocky Mount, and this one is top-notch, especially when you consider you get two totally different courses in one park. Simply excellent.
