Better than expected
0 Helpful / 3 Not
Pros: Variety of shots and elevation. Used a whole bag of tricks.
Cons: 9 holes but the multiple pins helps with that but they're still the same holes just with a 10-20% difference.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is one of my favorite 9 hole courses that I've played. The tight woods forces accuracy. The elevation changes force good disc selection. I like a course that punishes a mistake and your score can get up there at University Park when that happens.

Good use of small property

Pros: Great tee pads and signs. Great parking area. Score cards on the first tee box. Challenging fairways, must use control and placement on every hole.
Cons: This is a new course and you can tell. They need to do quite a bit of cleanup on the fairways. There are still some small trees that probably need to be removed before they grow and really disrupt the fairways. Lots of debris on the ground. One hole plays vey near an apartment complex and discs can go down. This could be a major problem eventually. They need to put a fence up to protect the apartments.
Other Thoughts: There were lots of bugs, it is played entirely in the woods for the most part. One plays from open into the woods and nine plays from woods out into the open. There are nine holes, but two placements for each hole ( short and long). I liked this course and it is a good alternative to Westover if you are in the area. I will definitely be playing this one again.

New course at JMU
0 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Nice use of terrain and vegetation. Concrete pads. Alternate pin positions. Lots of parking. Flow from one hole to the next fairly obvious
Cons: Didn't yet have sign posts in place. Only 9 holes. No water or restrooms near the course (though there should be some at the sports pavilion, I didn't check.) A lot of trees were cut down around #9, which has opened the hole up too much, in my opinion.
No benches, or bag hooks, but it is early yet on this course.
Other Thoughts: I played in the winter, so the trees had not yet leafed out, which may affect visibility.
