Pros: Like everyone has said...1 and 18 do offer you the chance to throw your longest drives ever. Great views from up there. Holes 1 thru 8 are challenging and fair.......
Cons: ....but the rest of them were an afterthought. Sticking baskets in the woods doesn't make a disc golf course (check out InDiGo...now that's a well designed woods course) Having to navigate the woods is one thing but adding the"walk displays" makes the back side unplayable...especially with the lack of any attempt of maintaining anything back there. Damaged metal panels on #9 basically took the fairway out of play...the entire back side is like playing goofy golf in a landfill and you keep looking for the windmill and clown foot holes to be around the next bend. No flow-you have to backtrack to a few tee pads. They need to have a work day or 7 and clear out some underbrush....some baskets weren't even visible and not because of the dog legs.....these were right in front of you. Lots of trees near baskets....getting through the fairway woods should not be rewarded by having to get through a dozen more when you're 8 feet from the basket.
Other Thoughts: I was really amped to play this course...glad it was on my way back to B'ham and didn't go out of my way to play. Should have made 18 the 9th and last hole and added another tee pad to each hole on the playable side and going around twice thus eliminating the crap side and maybe even being open in October!
Didn't get to play the 18th because the kiddies had soccer practice in the middle of the fairway....not suprising tho for the experience out there...won't be back.

 Brutal back 9

Pros: Like the other reviewers have said, holes 1 and 18 are amazing. The front 9 are tough but still fun with mostly uphill shots.
Cons: The back 9 is brutal if you are not 20 something and do cross-fit.
Other Thoughts: If you are 40 or older, be sure you bring hiking boots, an oxygen tank and a first aid kit! Or just plan to play the front 9 and #18.

A wonderful course with 2 problems

Pros: The front nine was laid out perfect, the flow from hole to hole was easy even for new players without a map. Elevation changes, wooded areas, really test a players skills. Concrete pads and signage boost the course past older courses.
Cons: Holes 14 and 15 are almost unplayable. 14 doglegs to the left by almost 90 degrees and to the right is a huge wooded drop off. Hole 15 has a 38 up slope not for the faint of heart or weak of leg.
Other Thoughts: Hole 1 and 18 are amazingly fun holes as they are both long distance and have great downward elevation changes. Its worth playing the course for 1 and 18.

Pros: Revelation Mountain is a very clean course that provides concrete tee pads, quality holes, and a scenic "Revelation Walk," (back 9) a Christian event area. Holes 1 and 18 give a rare opportunity for some major driving distance as you tee off on top of the mountain to pins 650+ ft. below.
Cons: Many tee pads are skewed with the landscape giving an uneven tee approach; and as predicted, much of the course is up and down so be prepared for a hike. In particular, the back 9 has 3 holes that are very steep up and down.
Other Thoughts: There is not a course like this in the greater Birmingham area. The front 9 shines while the back 9 needs an evaluation of course design.
