almost like 2 courses in one

+ Multiple tees - The long tees make for a very different course than the short tees. Especially on the front 9, the short tees would be great for a family outing or beginners
+ Multiple pin locations
+ Great use of the land (great scenery on the back especially) and structures - the barn on #1 makes for an interesting hole; the course wraps around the perimeter of the property and uses the boundary with Fall Creek well
+ Very good signage - probably the best I've seen in the area
+ Concrete tee pads on all holes
+ Nice tee sign posts - to hang bags, stack discs, etc.
+ Well maintained - fairways and pin areas seem regularly cut
+ There is a practice basket near the start.
- Course layout makes for a several consecutive right doglegs at the beginning (feels a bit repetitious) but after that it gets more interesting, especially if you play all 18.
- Lots of stinging nettles in the woods/rough, mostly on back 9 - wear long pants, or just stay in the fairway! EDIT - rough has been cut back quite a bit so it isn't as much of an issue as it used to be.
- Not a consistent feel throughout the course - the back 9 plays very different from the front, but that's due to the layout of the land more than design.
Other Thoughts: There is a large course map and other info about the course. #1 will be to the right of the info board.

Good change of pace
Cons: Hole design could be better
Lot of pins are just tucked away to the right
Other Thoughts: Decent course. Nothing to rave home about but it is new and maybe a few adaptations to the pin locations would make it better. Hopefully the neddles will be mowed down once more people play it.

DISC heaven at Fall Creek!
6 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: This course has a little bit of everything, open full pump holes, both moderately and heavily wooded holes, a good dose of water holes, and even a fair amount of terrain to deal with. Nice size concrete Blue and Red tees and "A" and "B" pin locations on each hole. There is also a practice basket by the super sized, awesome course sign board! The front nine is mostly open to moderate woods, with a few holes in some dense woods along beautiful Fall Creek. The back nine is fully in the heavy woods and also has several challenging holes along the creek. Tons of big beautiful trees, lots of wildlife, this course is a pleasure to see, experience and play.
Holes vary from tight technical to long bomb, straight shots and doglegs abound. With Blue and Red tees for each hole, plus "A" and "B" pins too, it gives you four different layouts to enjoy. Players from Rec to Advanced to Open will find a challenging and enjoyable game here.
Easy to get to with plenty of parking, there's a big double sign-board near the first hole. Good tees signs and a nice flow on the course with only a few short walks between holes. A nice place to come play in the shade during the hot summer months!
Cons: The course is subject to some flooding, especially during the spring. But given its' location along Fall Creek, this is not unexpected! Bring the bug juice! No drinking water. Bring your own. Bathrooms are only available in the Church during hours they are open, but they are considering adding a portalet or two.
Other Thoughts: This is a very nice course and will only get better and better over time as benches and other refinements are made. There is even room for, and some interest in adding an additional 9 holes in the "back forty" to make it a 27 hole layout! Wish they could all be like this!

Comfortable mid-range course
0 Helpful / 5 Not
Pros: Pleasant course with both open and wooded holes. Medium range holes. But still enough of a challenge to be rewarding. A great course to warm up for a day of folf or a nice lunch time break.
Cons: A few holes play near the creek which is several feet deep. Already fished one disc from the depths.
