Pros: Great place to work on 150-250ft game. It's got that great beat-in course feel considering it has been around quite awhile. It's just open enough for beginners to work on hitting lines but still fun for the seasoned players as well. I love the design, yes there are some crossover fairways, but people are always courteous to players on the tee.
Cons: Tee pads need replacing badly. Some are still in tact but others are broken up in spots or have a 1 ft drop off in the front of the pad, begging for a rolled ankle. Also, the course is pretty rocky as everyone has reviewed. Your disc will get some scuffs on it...but it is a great place to beat a new disc in and you can always count on your disc sticking where it lands. It's crowded usually but never to the point where your waiting more than a minute or two to tee off.
Other Thoughts: I gotta give this course a 4 just because it's a great pitch and putt course for any disc golfer and it just has that good ol' local course feel to it. If I didn't play here at least once a week I'd probably give it a 2.5, but the more you play it the more you love it.
*Beware of the Kentwood Curse*
Chain-outs are very common here due to the baskets being the old DGA baskets. When you chain out, it's more commonly referred to as "Kentwooding it"

A Second Chance
Pros: Relatively easy to keep track of your disc. Great course for beginners because the holes are varied in style.
Cons: Too many uphill and rocky holes. Major con is the rockiness. It really dings up your discs.
Other Thoughts: The downhill holes make the uphill ones more bearable. I'm glad I gave this place a second chance!

NICE WOODS IN RALIEGH
Pros: a mix of woods with a few open holes. one water hazard(2 dirty 2 retrive discs). i belive the cut up the old pads into suns with sunshine rays w a chop saw. so try to play the non cut up pads. sometimes tight mostly open enough to throw multiple types of shots.
Cons: the cut up pads fix them or take them out
Other Thoughts: try not to hit ne 1` near the baseball field

Pros: Lots of types of holes and not too many trees, but enough to make you work. Just like the other course in Raleigh, there's a playground and bathrooms. Holes are marked very well and easy to navigate.
Cons: Maybe they've updated the pars, but there was a really short hole that was rated a 5, and the longest hole on the course was rated a 3 - - even though it was a monster, uphill, long hole.
Other Thoughts: Good location near NC state - - you do have to watch the playground on the 1st hole, cause you could easily smack a kid in the head with a bad throw! Trust me.
