Under-appreciated course is fun to play
7 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: -Balanced design with variety of open holes, tight wooded holes, variety of skills/shots needed
-Pretty location with large ponds, large open greens, forest backdrop
-Concrete tees (some need more backfilling through)
-Challenging design with tight woods, over/close-to the water shots, open shots to protected baskets, elevated baskets, elevated tees
-Very low traffic - mostly run into other disc golfers, I see maybe one or two pedestrians every other time I play there
-Free to play, free to park
-Restaurant and bar in the parking lot
Cons: -Wooded areas tend to stay wet well into the season
-Buggy in the woods in warm weather
-Poison ivy throughout wooded areas
-Highway noise on holes 11 and 12
-Basic signage needs upgrading
-Longish walk from 17 to 18, basically unmarked
-Can be hard to find for those unfamiliar/out of town
-Several tees need backfilling
Other Thoughts: This course is still in development - 16 was scrapped due to water/swamping and a new 4 was added. So the numbers on the google map for this course currently do not match the actual course after hole 3. It deserves better than a 2.5 rating - the proximity to water seems to turn a lot of people away, but unless you make a big mistake or poor judgement, you really shouldn't lose discs. I only lose a disc to the ponds once in a while, and always because I grip-locked off the tee. Personally I think this is one of the most fun courses to play in the area - there are no holes that I dread, and it rewards smart shots, even if they aren't executed perfectly. I disagree that this course isn't for beginners - except for the over-the-pond shot on 9 (which is only about 220 feet to safely land), all holes are playable by newbies.
TL;DR: This course is fun to play - ignore the current low rating!

Pros: This is a great challenge with some woods and some tricky lane shots. The pond gives this course a leg up on most as far as difficulty level... it comes into play on a few holes from having to shoot next to it to having to shoot over it.
Cons: only thing i dont like about this course is potential to lose a disc... but hey! the only way you get better is taking a few risk and making a few mistakes.
Other Thoughts: i dont think this course gets the love that it deserves from fellow disc golfers... dont give it a bad review just because you had one bad round or because your too affraid to throw over water....... sissy!!!
