Pros: Beautiful scenery

Not too crowded

Great variety (short v long, hyzer/anhyzer, open v. wooded)

Excellent pads, signs, baskets

Easy Access
Cons: Some holes very tricky for beginners/early intermediates

Several holes where losing discs is a danger

Some OB areas are muddy / full of briars & thorns

Layout is a bit tricky/awkward
Other Thoughts: One of my favorite courses that I've played. The variety is really what I go for, but almost everything about this course is solid. Beginners may find the course a little frustrating, but intermediate players will enjoy the challenges of this course and advanced players will like the fact that there are a few aceable holes and opportunities to try some new throws. Definitely not the same old park course. Worth the trip!

Pros: Plenty of holes on this course could be "signature holes" and are very beautiful dusk to dawn. The course has it all, open, wooded, and water holes. Great baskets, and signage to help from hole to hole. The wooded holes have improved greatly with the traffic that have traveled through them, along with the tee pads. There is talk of concrete pads soon.
Cons: Can be very windy on the front nine (just part of the game and being outside). Newer players to the sport might lose disc's on this course. I went through this. The more you play and learn the course the less disc's you lose. Spring rains can make course very wet in spots, but can definitely still be played. Just a little more walking.
Other Thoughts: I'am new to the sport, but have totally fell in love with it! This review is more of a "Home Course" review and I can't wait to travel and play more courses to help improve my game.

Pros: Bob has done an excellent job with the layout of this course using the available space to best of his abilities. Easy to get to and a good mix of short, intermediate, and long holes.
Cons: There are only 2 cons to this course. The first is the tee boxes which are currently a special blend that the parks and rec had on hand. It was very sandy when it was first installed, but has done a nice job of hardening in the last month or so. We are planning on installing cement tee boxes in the spring. The 2nd con is the transition from hole 12 to 13, which has you pass the tee on 15 and walk the length of 14 in the woods to get to the tee on 13, you then have to plan 13 and reverse field to get to 14. In the original course design it called for you to enter the woods at the opposite end and you would play 13 (which was reversed from its current layout) then 14 and exit the woods. However the church that owns the field that you would have had to cross to get to the other entrance would not allow us to use it and did not want anyone crossing their property. So we had to invert 13 to its current location and move the entrance to its current location. It is a little confusing, but it the best we could do with the circumstances.
Other Thoughts: This course came together rather quickly with Bob and I pitching the idea to the parks and rec and within 2 months we had outside financing and the course was up and running. we welcome any comments and suggestion and hope that everyone has fun playing it.
