Pros: Church courses usually all feel about the same; 200 foot holes, a few trees, mostly boring, closed on Sundays, etc. etc. You've seen one church course you've seen them all right? Think again! This course is all of that cookie cutter church course experience but with a few curve balls thrown in that you didn't expect to see, that is unless you are reading fine course reviews by excellent reviewers on a great website! HA!

I'm not sure if hole two is on the cons list or pros list for me, it is one of the worst but wackiest holes I've played and at almost 200 courses played I like to see something I haven't seen before. Anyway hole two starts you on one side of the old church with the tee pad staring off towards the property line and an electric fence probably 100 feet away. Further investigation and you walk around the old church and you see a basket tucked in a corner with maybe a ten foot green and surrounded by an electric fence. Check out the pictures in the media section.
Cons: This is not a course for the touring pro but you can have fun here with a putter, super class disc or coffee can lid. The only hole that really challenges even your putter is hole seven which is the creepy cemetery hole which I over drove and ended up putting from on top of one of the graves which is just plain creepy.

Many of the holes play right next to both the old and new church buildings and I'm surprised they already haven't had problems with over zealous golfers and their warp speed drivers breaking windows.
Other Thoughts: This place is kind of out of the way of just about everything so I'm not sure why you would be driving through this way but if you are I would recommend stopping for thirty minutes and stretching the legs. This is a destination course for course baggers I believe as you get a few unique opportunities here that you won't find anywhere else.

Pros: One of the first things you notice when you drive into the church property are two different signs pointing out where the "Disc Golf" parking is located. There's a kiosk here with a large course map and container with course maps for players to take.

The course starts right in front of the church under the entry way (Look up for the tee sign) and first plays around the old church building and then proceeds to play around the newer church building in a counter clockwise direction. The tee pads are small concrete ones. The baskets are cheaper ones made by Hyton Company. They're fine for the use that this course will get. The tee signs are basic little fiberglass ones with the hole #, Par, distance and rudimentary map showing trees, OB's, etc.

**Be aware that the # 5 tee sign is bolted to the pole that holds the basketball hoop.**

The course is basically a decent little pitch and putt. Has a couple fun little ACE runs. Good place to come and practice you approach game or to bring that newbie or girlfriend.
Cons: The two holes over by the cemetery kinda creep me out. I over drove # 7 just a little and sailed my drive OB to the graves. Just doesn't feel right.

Not going to challenge most players. No place to really air out your drives. Sub-standard baskets. Probably not available on Sundays. You should check with the church office if you have any doubt about the course being open or not.

Other Thoughts: Be good stewards to the church by playing your round without your beer, drugs or smokes. Pick up your litter. Watch your %$#0^0# language even after missing that tough putt!

And think, this might be one of the few courses where you can come and pay your respects to a deceased loved one and get a round of disc golf in, all at the same location. Kind of like, a form of One Stop Shopping!
