Not much potential

Pros: 9 Nice Innova Baskets, you can camp here , its on alum creek lake, boats , beach , fish, across the lake you can play at the players course.
Cons: if its your first time ever playing a disc golf course, you might not ever go again.
Other Thoughts: if or when this 9 hole course gets some TLC, it could be ok for kids or a random camper.

Other Thoughts: Two years since the last review and its possible nobody has even thrown this course since then. There was no evidence of tee signs, posts, rocks or even ruts in the grass from people driving from it. Those slabs of concrete are still piled up near the office. The baskets aren't numbered in any way so without a map it is simply land with occasional baskets. It's too bad. The land looks like you could make several cool holes there.

Pros: Some interesting holes, and close to home.
Cons: As others have stated, this is a work-in-progress. Holes 7 and 8 are deep in the woods without clear throwing lanes. We never found hole 9, even with the map from the camping office.
Also, there are many sections of the fairways that are very rutted. Easy to twist an ankle.
Other Thoughts: We saw what appeared to be pre-formed concrete tee pads stacked near hole 1, so maybe there will be some nice improvements there.

Pros: Great DisCatcher baskets. Good use of small lot (although mostly wide open, most holes are near trees/bushes). Nice shot selection, with a couple of creative route opportunities. Ability to play a round on a lunch break.
Cons: Not very long or challenging. No real elevation, and the ground was kinda swampy in areas. This is more of a 6-hole course at this time than a 9-hole course. Still pretty raw.
Other Thoughts: I went on a Sunday and the office was closed, so I was not able to get a map, which I'm sure would've helped. I did find a park ranger, who said he had not played the course but was under the impression that only 6 of the 9 holes were complete, and I would agree.
The six open holes are on the other side of the road from the parking lot, near the campground check-in office. They flow well and have orange flags for tee pads. The other three holes are in the woods near the parking lot, but after trekking around I was not able to find pads/flags nor a distinct route to the basket.
I am not sure about the long-term intention of this course as the 18-hole course across the reservoir is temporarily closed (last I heard it re-opens in June). It is short (20-25 minutes) and easy, but if you take it for what it is you'll still have fun. It is a great course to practice your mid-range game, and I found it to be challenging if you play each pad to the next hole's basket (1 pad to 2 basket, 2 pad to 3 basket, etc.); it's actually a really good course for this type of round.
At this time I wouldn't say it is worth a long drive, but if you're local and want to play something while waiting for the 18-hole Alum course to re-open, definitely hit it up.
