Pros: Start with a mix of woods and wide open areas, big hills and completely flat land. Give the designer free reign with ropes, construction materials, and anything else he wants. What you get is a course with an unusual amount of man-made obstacles, and unique and cool shots.
This course gives you lots to think about. Much of it is a "ropes" course, straight or curving fairways with open air space but treacherous O.B. on either side. But it also has its share of tight wooded holes to thread. Sometimes level, but also with major elevation affecting your decisions. And high-risk basket locations.
All on top of the highest, most-windswept spot in the county.
The amenities are great. Signage is excellent, and navigation is easy. There's another course on the property (which I haven't played). And one of the most complete pro shop/disc golf stores you'll ever see in Killer B's, at the entrance.
Cons: Too much. A matter of taste, of course, but to my taste, too much gimmickry. Baskets way up in the air, on poles or mounds or barrels, or sunk in the ground, or hanging, and almost every basket is non-standard height. Constructed free-standing walls, ponds, a basket surrounded by a corral of metal gates, and such give the course a bit of a "goofy golf" feel.
While the layout is great, there are only a few multi-throw holes.
Other Thoughts: If the baskets were at normal heights and a few of the constructions toned down, I'd give this course a 4.5. Maybe a 4.25, if that were possible. Which is to say, if you're a person who finds this kind of thing cool, this could be a 4.5 course to you, too. On the other hand, if you don't like "man-made" O.B. and obstacles, be prepared to be annoyed.
It's different from anywhere else, so I recommend everyone in the area check it out, and see where it falls on your own taste meter.

Pros: - very original hole design. there are elevated baskets, baskets over water, hanging baskets, and a buried basket.
- a good challenge for intermediate and beginning players, but also not intimidating.
- nice variation in hole design: long, short, wooded, open, doglegs, etc.
- friendly staff
- nice "hole map" on every tee box
Cons: - some of the tee boxes are overgrown
- actually finding some of the tee boxes proved difficult, even with signs showing initial direction
Other Thoughts: it's a pay-to-play course, which i'm fine with, but others may not be. $5 gets you all the disc golf you can handle for the day.
