Pros: -Reedy has good tee signs. Trash cans and benches on most holes.
-There are concrete tee pads, and several holes have multiple tee pads.
-There are also different pin placements on many holes. The local club usually alternates and puts the pins in the long postion for spring summer, short for fall and winter.
-This is a great course to hone your accuracy without having to bomb your disc.
-The course flows very well, with signs pointing to the next hole when it's not obvious.
-There is a putting basket to practice on.
-This is a great summer course. It is very heavily wooded offering you shade for most of your round.
Cons: -This course can get real slippery after it rains, it also has alot of roots above ground. It's a good idea to watch your footing.
-Can get really crowded. If playing on the weekends or later in the day on weekdays you can expect delays. If playing by yourself you will have to play through many groups. But I've never had anyone not let me play through.
-The back nine has a walking trail, though it's only been an issue a few times, I have encountered walkers taking a wrong turn and ending up in the fairway.
Other Thoughts: Reedy is a fun course to play. It has a varitey of left, right and straight. The design does a great job with the elevation available. When the baskets are in the short postion I usually take more mid-range than drivers. This a great course for recreational/casual players.

I love this place!
Pros: The course is challenging however it is still not hard to shoot a great score. Some holes have alternate baskets and I believe all of them have an alternate tee location. This course will force you to use every shot in your bag as well, forehand, backhand, overhand, I even saw my friend throw an underhand shot today to get out of a sticky situation. Decent elevation change but not drastic enough to tire you out. You can play two 18 hole rounds and barely break a sweat as it is a pretty easy walk.
Cons: I wish the alternate baskets were there year round however I believe they alternate them.
Other Thoughts: If you are getting beat down by the Renny swing by Reedy Creek and redeem yourself!

Tons of fun
Pros: The course rewards good drives and can punish bad drives. If you keep your drives in the fairway, a score under par is likely. Poor drives can be eaten by the woods, but even if your drive veers off course, the woods aren't so dense that making par is impossible.
There's a nice diversity of holes ... the holes aren't that long, but several of the short holes offer a nice challenge.
Cons: This excellent course is about 350 miles from my home. :(
Other Thoughts: I visited some friends in Charlotte a couple weeks ago and we played this course three separate times in a 24-hour period. I loved this course! It's better than any of the four courses I've played at around the Chattanooga area.
On holes #6, #7 and #14, you may want to have a "lookout" stand halfway down the fairway to keep track of the drives.

A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing
Pros: Fun tight course. Short holes for the most part. Technical; good for those with lesser arm strength but consistency off the tee. Can be very unforgiving as the woods are deep and mean throughout. Good variety of shots needed. Nestled in a big beautiful park with lots to see. Easy to navigate. Lots of evevation changes. It's a good course to start with if youre in the Charlotte area and will help prepare you for some of the challenges presented in the other harder courses nearby.
Cons: Not very pretty as far as courses go. Lots of muddy hills and fairways. Some rather nasty foul looking creeks come into play here and there. No open holes which limits the variety to a degree.
Other Thoughts: This is a good course to hone your accuracy on. Dont need to torque the hell out of your tee shot to get a birdie chance.

Charlotte's Old School Course
Pros: - The classic Charlotte course. It's the oldest existing course in the area. It's probably Charlotte's most played course. Seems anyone in the area who has ever played disc golf, has played Reedy.
- Variety of holes - doglegs, holes with elevation changes, short, long, etc.
- Plenty of risk/reward chances on this course. Lots of shorter holes, under 250 feet, present plenty of chances for possible birdies. Because it's a wooded course, you still have to have accuracy to score well. If not, you'll end up in the woods, and have to scramble to save par.
- Easy to navigate - course is well laid out; good tee signs, dual tee pads (original and stout), dual hole placements.
- Short walk from parking lot to first hole, and practice tee. Both #9 & #18 lead back to parking lot. You can easily start at #10 if front 9 is too crowded.
Cons: Not a difficult course. Despite being mostly in the woods, course is pretty wide open. If you do get off the fairway, trees can be pretty heavy and penalize you.
- Can be extremely crowded. Close to UNCC, so lots of college students, especially in spring & fall. Also have lots of casual players. On weekends, not uncommon for slow play to due to heavy use. Some of the college players, even in large groups, tend to not pay attention to anyone else, so you may get stuck behind a slow group that's in no rush to let you play through.
- Baskets are metal (silver) colored, instead of more common yellow DISCatcher baskets. On some holes, baskets are difficult to spot because they blend in with surroundings.
- This course has been effected by erosion, and general wear & tear, more than almost any course I've played. A number of fairways, and hills, have been completely worn down to just dirt. You really notice it when discs skim along the ground further than normal, and/or you'll get more shots that roll down hills (and further) because there's nothing to stop it.
Other Thoughts: Good, solid course. Nothing overly good or bad about stands out about the course.
- Great course for beginners and all casual players. All skill levels will enjoy the course.
- Course isn't usually crowded during the week, so a good place to get a round in after work. As mentioned above, much busier on the weekend.
- Great park - plenty of restrooms, water fountains, etc. Park has plenty of other ammenities including numerous baseball and soccer fields, nature reserve, hiking trail, lake for fishing and dog park.

A wide variety of challenges
Pros: The change in elevations make a good number holesof appear longer than they are. The course is pretty well maintained and is easy to follow from hole to tee box. Hole # 9 is great for a sidearm shot, an ace is not out of the question.
Cons: There are back to back holes on the back nine that have extremely difficult approaches. If overthrown, be ready to start running after your disc as it rolls down a very steep and long embankment.
Other Thoughts: Often crowded because of proximity to UNCC

Fun Course all around.
Pros: Well kept, not much trash except for a few tree stumps full of beer cans. Pretty challenging with a few water hazards and hilly terrain. Lots of fun.
Cons: Can be very busy since it is well known to most people and recommended as a starting course for beginners.

Charlotte's Classic Woods Course
Pros: Undulating landscape, maintained, defined, but challenging fairways.
Other Thoughts: Charlotte's oldest disc golf course, Reedy Creek is the classic "woods course," but a nice one. Playing over hilly terrain, the course makes excellent use of the landscape, and features long, reasonable fairways carved out of an old forest with many impressive trees.
The amenities at Reedy Creek are excellent, with great tee pads, signs, benches, and next tee signs where they're needed. The course is in good shape too, with the fairways well maintained and just right in their challenge: not an unreasonable amount of trees to work around, but certainly not easy. And the layout makes good use of the hills, with plenty of cool downhill shots, a few uphill challenges, a few doglegs, and a few challenging basket placements. The fairways are often long, but again, not real long like Patapsco or Rockburn Branch. But there's enough 300-foot holes for even the big arms.
Overall, Reedy Creek is good woods course, plenty challenging and pretty. Don't skip over it if you're in the Charlotte area and enjoy the precision and length needed to excel in this kind of disc golf environment.
Favorite Hole - #10 - Long, slight downhill tee shot and then right hook uphill to basket set back in the trees.
