Pros: * Baskets are brand new
* Scenery is good while playing
* Is very challenging
* Some decent elevation changes
Cons: * Very difficult to maneuver without map
* Some shots are near impossible due to:
- sharp turns
- blind turns
* Difficult to find the pads to throw from
* most baskets are impossible to see from pad.
* If you throw a disc off to the side, it may be impossible to find it again, as there are very steep hills on each side for half the course, with very thick woods.
* Is muddy in some spots
* There are no holes you can unload on.
Other Thoughts: This course feels the least like a course out of all others I've played. It is basically a walking path down a hill with random baskets.

Pros: The course plays along a wooded walking trail. Mature trees keep most of the course in shade and brush lines the fairways offering heavy punishment for errant shots. Many of the holes offer tight lines to hit, with a nice balance of left and right turning holes. A few holes have some decent elevation changes. The baskets are in good shape. There are fairly accurate course maps at both ends of the layout, you'll want to snap a picture to help with navigation.
Cons: There are major safety issues here. Every single hole plays along the walking path, meaning lots of waiting if there are walkers or joggers out. Many of the holes have blind turns, without a spotter it's way too easy to throw into path users. The layout of the course has you playing backwards for the back 9, meaning more possibility for blindly throwing into another group.

There is little maintenance outside of the path itself, so some of the lines are grown in to the point of being too tight, and there's strong possibility of losing discs. The tees are natural and few are level. The tee markers are small paving stones at ground level, many of which are grown over with grass or brush. Without careful attention to the course map it can be difficult to figure out where the tees should be.
Other Thoughts: The shots are short, but with lots of heavy rough and tighter lines beginners may be a bit frustrated. More experienced players will find the course short with some decent short game practice but major safety issues and maintenance concerns take away from the fun factor here a lot. I wouldn't go out of your way for this one, and I hope that discs flying blindly around corners doesn't give a terrible impression of our sport to all the other path users (or cause serious injury!)

Pros: Nice technical lines. good for mid range game
Cons: no big throws, follows walking path so the potential to knock out a college student walking the course is possible with blind throws, alot glass and metal around
Other Thoughts: when the course gets cleaned up a little more it will be nice. The course plays better going up the hill or the back 9, than the front
