Pros: Is a disc golf course
Cons: Lots of snakes
Thick brush lining every hole - gonna lose some discs
Way too many trees per hole, course is complete luck
Other Thoughts: Go to the kiwanis course and save yourself some discs and time

Pros: This course has a great mix of open and wooded course with many technical holes.
They have super nice concrete tee pads and brand new Innova baskets with great signs at each pad and arrows on the basket pointing you to the next tee pad.
It's a happy mix of the Cherokee Park and Kiwanis course that we have in town because it's got the short, technical, wooded holes of the Kiwanis course and the long, open holes of Cherokee Park.
The grounds are super nice and kept up with trash cans on many holes. Though you still have the usual bottle or wrapper laying around from where people are to lazy to use the trash cans.
Cons: With this being a newer course, the parks and rec are still working on ironing out the wrinkles as far as like wooded fairways being a little to overgrown and growing grass around certain boxes and fairways so it can get a little muddy.
During a busy weekend, the back nine can get crazy because they play mostly along the soccer fields so you have to be really careful about where you throw.
It would be nice if there were more bathrooms along the course and water fountains.
Holes 4, 5, and 6 kind of run close to one another so you have to keep an eye out especially while in 4 and 5's fairway and on 6's tee box.
If you miss a fairway in the woods during summer, be prepared to spend some time looking for your disc because the woods get super think and there are thorn bushes about every 5 feet.
The park closes at dusk so for now the opportunity of a glow round is out of the question.
Other Thoughts: If the gates to hole 1 are closed you can park at the baseball field parking lot and walk about 500 ft to hole 1 basket. Or you could park at 4 and just start with hole 4 and end with 3 to end where you parked if by chance the baseball field gate is closed.
Holes 4, 13, 14, 15, and 17 require very accurate drives and approach shots or else you could get into some difficult shots.
Holes 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12, and 18 are the open holes with the others being all wooded or mostly wooded.
Hole 13 to me is the hardest hole because it starts out open and then does a 90 degree into the woods about 175 ft from the box. It's literally like an L, and for a lefty like me who's a newbie it kicks my butt.
Hole 4 is also difficult because you have a wall of trees about 75 ft from the box with narrow gaps to hit then opens up into a super long fairway.
It's a very nice course to play because it's big enough to where you don't have to worry about other disc golfers on a majority of the holes (4, 5, and 6 are really the only ones where others come into play) so it's a pretty safe place to play.
Disc golf is starting to take off in Morristown and we even have the Tennessee State Championships coming in June so if you are in the area I would definitely suggest checking it out if you're wanting something more than the Kiwanis course but not as long as the Cherokee Park course.

Pros: Great layout nice mix of open and woods a few ace runs but not many takes around 2 hour per foursome.
Cons: Cons well the park service is very annoying always hassling you where you're going very strange for a city park and if you don't want to have to walk a 1/4 mile to hole 1 you will need to park at hole 4 it is the bottom parking lot they lock the gates to the skate park, soccer fields and disc golf course they have nice practice baskets at hole 1 but you have to park a 1/4 mile away very strange but the park service will park there company trucks at hole 1 one and play during the middle of the day and hold the vistors up

Pros: Wonderful course with a nice mixture of open and wooded holes. had nice teepads and signs for each hole. The practice area actually has 3 basket u can practice putting on.
Cons: Only prob I had is hole 3 or 4 I believe there isnt a good line to throw at all. Should def take out a couple of trees for u to actually have a line to throw.
Other Thoughts: The course is in a very nice park with parking everywhere. Might want to bring a stool with u cause I didnt c any benches to ait down on.

An Incomplete review
Pros: I must be upfront and say that I only played the first 10 holes. Navigation wasn't too bad and I generally enjoyed most holes. It started going bad on 10.
Cons: The major con is the unplayability of the back 9 when the soccer fields are in use. This completely ruined my view of this course. There seemed to be no thoughts as to the impact of soccer matches on the usability of the rest of the course. There is a tournament listed in a couple of weeks. This will be impossible to pull off if the soccer fields are in use. I definitely would have given a higher rating if not for the major problems with integration with other park guests.
Other Thoughts: H.B. Clark's other morristown courses are among my favorites. I just can't believe this problem occurred.
Updated 11/7/12. After a second attempt to play all 18 holes I have revised my rating to reflect the whole course. I still see potential for problems with others utilizing the facilities, steps have been taken to work on the problem. I was not a fan of 17, no discernible fairway through to the basket. I did however enjoy the rest of the back 9. Particular favorites were 11-13. Please give this course a try, it is worth the effort.

Another great MoTown Course
4 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Great use of land that was given. Long technically challenging par 4's. The flow of the course is really good. The course is listed as wooded, but most the woods holes have large open fairways.
Cons: The flow is good, but some of the tee pads are extremely close to fairways and on at least 3 holes I could see this as a problem during a large event.
Other Thoughts: Really looking forward to seeing this place in about 2 yrs after some tree trimming and solid play. Just like the other 2 H.B. Clark courses in this area he has really done a good job. Morristown has quickly become a DG destination!
