It's a Practice Area

Pros: But it's a really nice practice area. I popped in here en route to Valley Springs and was pleasantly surprised with the potential of the area. True, there are no tees. Isn't that really better for this type of area? You can "tee off" from anywhere.

It's six holes scattered around a series of fields with no hole design at all. So you are free to play safari, and by safari, I mean practice any type of shot you want. Bring all your discs: you aren't likely to lose any. Throw them all: you aren't going to be interrupted. Bring you're new discs: haven't you been waiting to see how they fly?

What Glenn School has going for it that similar courses that I've seen don't is a bit of elevation. It has three holes in an open field. I wouldn't expect fewer than that. But the other three holes provide different looks which allow you to work with elevation. The first hole is on a the crest of a small hill. The second is on the edge of a long ridge. The sixth is at the end of a downhill tunnel.

And the big field, which houses three of the holes? Even big arms should be able to stand at one end and toss toward the far basket without fear of going too far. So it's a driving range too.

Obviously this isn't a course in the traditional sense. But as practice area, it's got a lot going for it.
Cons: Right, well. There are no tees. There are no signs. There is no layout persay. I think we've established it's not a course as we would often use the term.
Other Thoughts: What's really great about the lack of tees is the ability to introduce newcomers of various ability/strength levels to the game and come up with tees of lengths that would suit them.
