Tight technical course
0 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: Tight lines through the trees
Variety of different types of holes
Cons: This is a new course and the area is under construction so there are a few places where you are prone to wander from hole to hole.
Also, it was SUPER wet when we played (though not the courses fault)
Other Thoughts: There are plenty of challenging shots through the trees for a Rec player like myself. Makes you play smart instead of gripping and ripping

Pros: Fun course, since it plays around a school campus, the grounds are very well maintained. Good course for beginners.
Cons: Holes are not all that interesting, mostly straight shots relying on trees as obstacles. Only about one or two holes with a dogleg.
Other Thoughts: Overall a fun course to try out.

Great Course with a Good Vibe
1 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: -Trinity Baptist College DGC is a mix of short wooded holes and medium range semi-wooded holes.
-The course has an overall good vibe. Tall pines, palm trees, and spanish moss adorn this course.
-Holes 5 and 6 play in the very front of the college on the well-manicured grass alongside the large fountains. This section of the course is very picturesque.
-Water hazards, parking lots, and sidewalks come into play on several holes.
-Baskets are old, but catch well. Some are repainted.
-All signs are thick "campaign" type signs. Course is easy to follow with the "Next Tee" Signs.
-Holes 13-16 are in a separate section of the course. Look for the "New Holes" sign after hole 12.
-The course plays in a figure-8 and has a logical flow.
Cons: -There are not really any holes to "Air it out".
-Tees are a mix of natural and outdoor carpet material.
-Course is extremely marshy in several spots.
-Hole 9 is labeled 14 and vice versa.
-A couple of the holes are overly tight.
Other Thoughts: Some of the issues mentioned in the earlier reviews seem to have been worked out. It's now a really solid course and more than worth visiting. This course just has a really good feel to it.

Something good in the works
3 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: This is a new course and definitely has needs some wearing in but it has the makings of something that could be really nice. It has some nice holes on well-maintained campus that should be accessible for players of all ability levels. Due to its location, it should see a lot of first-time players and its perfectly playable for them in its current design. At the same time, veterans should find something to enjoy here.
The first three holes (and 13-14) traverse a lightly wooded area. It's not too tough but the trees force you to throw real disc golf lines while the lack of underbrush should keep beginners from being frustrated. Its good, welcome-to-disc-golf stuff that I enjoyed.
After that the course plays out onto the front of the campus, which is where the good and the bad come in. The good: there's a stretch of of holes that play around a few small ponds. These are great. They are near the road but all shoot away from the road and towards the water. The ponds can be carried or played around. They're really nice looking bodies of water that are just begging to be thrown over though so it will be an easy choice for players of experience. There's another carry late on 17 with a less pretty pond but a shot that will be more challenging for RHBH players, as any left fade will result in a disc bath.
That last carry is followed by a final, woodsy hole. It's a satisfying conclusion to a satisfying course. There is still work to do here, but the potential is here for a very solid play.
Cons: The bad: holes 9-12 essentially play along the driving lane. I'm sure conflict can be avoided by playing the course at appropriate times, but the design here is not great. This is an area that is occasionally crowded with kids, as there is an elementary school on the grounds. Apparently it's cool to play whenever, as I saw multiple groups playing through the students, but I would suggest that these holes make it inadvisable to play this course between 2-4. During those times, there will not only be many people but also cars waiting in throwing lanes and driving through the hole 12 fairway. 12 additionally places the basket right behind a fence that errant throws are bound to pass over en route to the athletic fields. Later on, 15 and 16 play between a fence and a less-used road. It's not extremely risky but it's not completely safe either.
As it's a new course, I don't mind the lack of tees and the temporary signs. Those will come in time. And it's for the best,as a different way to route from 8 to 13. Perhaps its possible to play behind the complex and then reverse the flow of 18-13? No idea what's possible but those problem holes are going to keep this solid course from growing into a very good one.
Other Thoughts: Lastly, there is currently construction happening on the main road. This makes holes 4-8 temporarily unplayable. It's not going to last forever, but it does take out the best holes on the course. So while this is a good course that I would recommend playing if you're in the area, I would also advise waiting until the construction is finished to visit.

Nice new course with potential.
Pros: Nice mix of holes (woods, water, open) and throws. Short course. The wooded holes offer a good throw line.
Cons: No tee pads yet (it's new). The holes along the road can get a little marshy.
Other Thoughts: Each basket has a black mark pointing to the next tee.
