Potential...lots of potential
Pros: There is a lot of variety in this course. Some wide open, some very narrow fairways, some open to woods and woods to open. A little water, but nothing you would loose a disc into. Views of the surrounding mountains are great. I saw bluebirds, cardinals, minnows, deer , and rabbits. The wooded holes are not so overgrown that you are likely to loose any discs. I think this is a great beginner to intermediate course. If you can throw 150-200 foot drive you have a par potential on nearly every hole, which for an intermediate player like myself is fun and fantastic. Now I only made 3 pars, but that's why this is a great course for my level of play.
Cons: The signage is confusing and poor. Most holes have 2 different hole numbers, and though there was some instructions at the start, they didn't make sense to me.
The course map doesn't match either set of signs exactly. No next tee signs (why don't all courses have these?), though some of the tee signs did shown where the next tee should be.
Tees are not in great shape but playable enough.
Other Thoughts: A little course spruce up, especially with signs would make this a very good course and one I would recommend. But without that, an out-of-towner like myself would just get frustrated.

Pros: good mix of open and wooded holes
lots of risk/ reward. ie do you lay up on 1 or go into the rough? Do you shoot through the trees or put it in the middle?
Grass was cut and the creek was running. built on a watershed reserve.
hole 1, 2 and 9 are something special. like playing ball golf.
A little bit of wild life and beautiful views of the blueridge mountains
Cons: There are signs but I got a little confused that #2 was labeled as 11.
Super tight fairways on 3 and 6 in the woods seemed a little unfair. Damn it if I didn't hit the "first tree" twice in a row.
There was an extra basket near 7 i couldn't figure out and hole 8 seemed too short but maybe i didn't figure it out right. Did seem incomplete.
Other Thoughts: Another example of well we could put 18 holes here but a nice 9 hole with multiple tees would be better.
Sign at the front explains everything but i could tell it hadn't been updated for 6 months.
I gotta say I really like the work from these guys in central Virginia. Nice work blueridge!

Nice Walk in the Park
Pros: Nice mix of open an wooded holes. Good elevation changes. Not crowded at all. Fairly well marked.
Cons: A few holes were tough to find the basket and missing at least one tee box.
Other Thoughts: I've played this course twice in two years, but it was a nice chance to get out and toss the discs. There are some challenging wooded holes and a few open field holes to let it rip. They seem to be making improvements to it each year too.
