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 times...it is definitely in play. 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 as it is in some places 10 feet tall. The course has a very claustrophobic feel to it because of these artificial borders.

The Disc Nation goals are not the best...single chain baskets 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.

Hole 7 lacks a well thought out path...not really sure what to throw on the tee here or where the fairway really is.
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!
