Three tee locations per hole.
Compact, with some water/ball golf green challenges.
On the flat and open side.
This disc golf course has recently been added to a short (18=hole/~2700 yard from longs) ball golf course located just east of Salisbury, with an old house, sitting in the center of the roughly 1/3rd x 1/3rd mile plot of land, serving as the clubhouse. $3 for the first round/$2 per round after is reasonable, as is $9 for a golf cart - a luxury, not a necessity, as the course is quite flat and sits on a small footprint, but fun to have, too!
As you might expect from a small golf course on the Eastern Shore, the course is quite flat, and open. However, there is one treeline along the west side of the course, water hazards scattered about, and stray trees/bushes separating the fairways, and these have all been used, along with playing the ball golf greens as out-of-bounds, to good effect. While straight off the tee works well on most holes, there were a few that required mid-to-late left or right turns to reach the basket
The yellow-banded baskets are easy to spot, often sitting about green high, although some are closer than the green, and a few just beyond (e.g. #4). On the front nine, the basket is typically somewhere left of the green, while on the back nine, to the right is more common.
Tees: You tee from the ball golf tees, so they are natural, flat, and quite wide! The different tees are typically in line with each other, so add distance, but don't often change the look angle.
The ball golf scorecard is useful for moving from hole-to-hole, but the distances are for the ball golf greens, not the disc baskets. Holes 1-9 play to the left or far behind the clubhouse, while holes 10-18 to the right / near behind the clubhouse. The longest holes are found on the front, while there is more water to be avoided on the back.
While I liked many of the holes, 3/11 were probably my favourites, as they play similarly. Both have baskets (Number-11's elevated a bit, while number-3 has a couple trees nearby) located just on the other side of water. While the water carry isn't extreme, the variables are: 1) how close, or far, to the edge of the water did your earlier shots leave you, and 2) how closely do you want to park your approach, risking the water on a shot too short.
An enjoyable play, if you like them open with some relatively-easily-avoidable water hazards.

rent a cart, play DG

Pros: Driving and/or riding in a golf cart is a tremendous bonus usually not associated with DG. The carts had a roof on them keeping the sun off of you on a mostly open course.
This very short ball course turns into a good/very good place for DG.
Not many trees to hit and LOTS of water to contend with, especially on the back nine.
Lots of variety, not every shot is a bomber.
A few ace runs are available. Shaping your shots around bunkers and water makes you think about how to attack the holes. Strategy is important here.
Not very crowded mid-week. By 1p we were the only ones on the entire course.
Cons: The horse mature smell near basket 4 and hole 8 was simply disgusting.
8 modified Mach 1 baskets... I had one putt jump out of the bottom. The 10 DisCatchers caught well. New baskets are expected very soon, maybe next week.
No bar or restaurant on the premises.
Other Thoughts: The condition of the greens and bunkers on the ball course were the worst that I have seen but they are OB while playing DG so this aspect doesn't matter too much. This isn't Pebble Beach.
There is a prevailing wind on a daily basis so don't expect a round without some wind.
B&J's a small grocery and grill is only 1 mile away.
