Pros: - A moderately difficult course with a lot of elevation and tee shot variety. I've never seen a course with more creative use of elevation and slope. Number 6 is an absolutely fantastic downhill tee shot.
- A beginner will consider this a con - one bad shot could lead to another. This course will force you to be wise and stay on the fairway rather than going for a longer, harder shot, because, if not, sometimes your only shot is to throw 20 feet back onto the fairway.
Cons: - Number 3 is missing a tee pad and there are problems with the tee signs - some are partially or fully destroyed and it's hard to find your way around without a map. We spent an extra half hour searching for the holes (so bring a map!) as the holes are organized in an odd way.
- There is a swamp. I went in to get my friend's disc (for I was wearing Chaco's and he, shoes) and found out that it is quicksand. Don't throw your disc in there and don't step in the swamp to get it - use a stick.
- We could not play the long hole across the field because kids were practicing soccer on it. This was really annoying because I was looking forward to that tee shot all day.
Other Thoughts: NOT FOR BEGINNERS
You will lose discs (in the quicksand swamp) and be frustrated at the harder holes. And the difficulty in finding holes and getting to some of them will make you madder if you are already annoyed at the course.

Pros: Requires multiple types of shots to play and the ability to hit lines. It does have one longer hole that plays as a real par 4.
Cons: This course really is just another typical disc golf course with the addition of some poorly thought out usage of elevation. Most of the wooded holes are cookie cutter and offer nothing distinctive from anywhere else and most of the "gravity" holes were poorly designed and really wasted. The third hole is a complete joke along with the 90 degree turn hole (I think 14?). It is such a shame seeing baskets discarded on such holes as these.
Other Thoughts: This one is not really worth a revisit but then again most courses aren't. As usual it could have been so much better.
