Nice Challenging Course
Pros: Very well maintained.
Large tee pads.
Great balance of woods and open holes.
Cons: A little backtracking to get to next tee.
Other Thoughts: Another great course in the area. Will most definitely play it again.

pristine and beautiful
7 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Above all, I loved this course because of the impeccable maintenance of the entire facility. All area courses have beautiful woods, but at this course there is no trash, rusty equipment, or deteriorating structures to detract from that beauty. Rather, the structures here frame that beauty and add to it.
Huge tee pads.
Top quality baskets (I love DGAs, but I prefer the visibility of Discatchers, especially when playing a new course).
Great hole variety-short, long, tight, open, right, left, water.
Hole #6 is a classic long, wooded hole
Several of the holes seem to use a John Houck 2-shot strategy. Meaning you need to make two accurate shots to reach the green (not just two long shots). These holes spread out your scores and add variety to repeat visits (can you think of any holes at your local favorite where you always get the same score?)
Cons: We did get lost a couple of times, but other golfers helped us out. A couple of signs could help the flow.
The facility is a Christian youth camp, so it is usually not open to disc golfers. (however, being a private facility is also why it is so nice and clean)
Other Thoughts: This course is a model for course design and installation. If you get the chance to play here, do so, and make sure you thank the staff for a great time.

One of Tn's Best
Pros: Huge Teepads (6x10) and the nicest signs I've seen.
There are A, B, and even a few C locations on each hole.
There are several long holes and a few tight, wooded, tricky ones.
A great mix of right and left handed shots that require accurate shots.
A good throw will be rewarded with a chance at birdy while others may suffer.
There is only one Water shot and it's short but you need to be accurate to stay dry.
It's super quite out there and the walk is moslty shaded by huge mature trees.
CLEAN- i have never seen any trash out there.
Cons: It is a camp and therefore prior permission is required to play so that it remains a safe place for children which is the primarily the function of the land.
Other Thoughts: Thoughts for the future of TGAROL-
there is talk of going to a bag tag system that would require players to pay a once a year fee of $15 and fill out release to play.
This will allow the camp staff to know who is on the property.
During the busy summer months, they have talked about coming up with a "flag" system to allow DG'ers to know when it's open or closed. (think green is open and red is closed)
This information should be available on their website, on an actual flag pole, and on a voicemail that people could call before making the drive.

pretty fun new course
Pros: i think the tee signs are great. they have an A location and a B location. great baskets and they are double chained. good holes some cool tough long ones and some technical short ones. Great use of the land they had available. nice pads and nice owners.
Cons: its on a christian camp so the director want let you always play it especially during the busy summer camp days. Got to play it on the weekend. It is hard to get in sometimes because of where the course is.
Other Thoughts: has potential for a top level course. Needs to have tournaments here. No scorecards yet . i heard a rumor they were going to make it pay to play and maybe do a year membership sort of thing.
