Pros: Great job fitting in 9 holes into a small piece of available land. There is a nice blend of wooded and wide open holes.

Nice ace runs.

Great brand new concrete tee pads which give awesome grip. Also very nice signage with a course map at the first tee.

Hole 7 is a beast of a par 3 because of the trees. Though not necessarily a good design, it is fun to navigate.
Cons: The tall fence is a bit frustrating at is definitely in play at times...and its not fun to have to climb over.

The Disc Nation goals are not the best...weak chains that don't really grab the disc that well.

Holes 3-4 are just short straight away holes in an open field... a bit boring.

Holes 6 and 7 lack a well thought out path...

The fence makes the whole course feel odd and constrained, and really is a pain if you have a bad throw and end up over it.
Other Thoughts: A really quick but fun short course on school grounds. Nice neighborhood and a good practice course. But for any real challenge, there are better courses in the area.

That said, this course is very new. It needs to be broken in a bit, there is definitely some uneven soft ground and a lot of loose underbrush. With some better paths worn through the woods and possibly a bit more play, this course definitely has room for improvement.

Pros: * All 9 holes feature huge concrete tees for great grip!

*All brand new Disc Nation goals.

*Great Signage at every hole with easy naviagation.

*This course is half open and half wooded, which is a great change for the little amount of land used.

*This is a fast-fun ace race course for better players and a great starter cousre for new players.
Cons: *The landscape requires some serious work before children can safely play here. There is heavy debris around the wooded holes.

*Too easy of a course for an advanced player, serious players can become bored quickly at the lack of far disatnces.

*The fence around this course is great to stop the local middle school children from walking onto the course. However it is fairly easy for a newer player to lose a disc over the fence.
Other Thoughts: Although this course is not as demanding as I like, I found it to be very fun for an Ace race, and a good course to practice tight wooded shots.

****this course is still under heavy maintance, as the course gets better, I will update my review!
