Pros: This is an ideal course for newer players looking to hone their skills. Located in a small, square pine tree forest, the course weaves in and out of the many trees, testing your entire bag. The design is very good, with a lot of shot variety and every hole seems to have lots of different ways to get to the basket, but only 1 true fairway that requires good control of your discs to get the many birdies. There is very little elevation change and no shule. There are good concrete tee pads and tee signs on every hole. The are bathrooms across the road from hole 15.
Cons: This is your basic pitch and putt course, with very little challenge other than to get the birdie. With the way the trees are spaced out, there is always a recovery gap to the basket even after a bad drive. There are usually a couple of bums hanging around hole 3, but from my experiences, they have not been a bother. There are no benches, but the course is so short, you likely wouldn't sit down much anyway.
Other Thoughts: Although an easy course, there are enough trees to where every hole requires an accurate shot to get the birdie. As easy as it is for pros to shoot double digits down, the slightest bit of wind and being off target and it is just as easy for pros to shoot par or worse. It is one of the oldest courses in the nation and still a very fun course to play for all skill levels. You can play a quick round in no time. If you are a newer player or still trying to hone your skills, then I would recommend playing this course.

Pros: This is a great course which snakes through a pine tree forrest. A tight but fair, wooded course, Brahan tests your accuracy and disk durability. Its a great course for beginniners to learn how to actually control where their disc goes. There's a great mix of shots allowing you to practice just about every shot in your bag. For new players and shorter arms there's not a lot of distance with all but the first hole easily reachable from the tee.
Cons: Its a fairly easy course (at least now). I've seen pictures of the course from back when it was first put in and when world's was held there and it has lost a LOT of trees. With that said scores of -6 or -7 in a tournament are actually considered pretty low.
Other Thoughts: A nice complement to the other courses in the area (UAH, Mastin Lake, Redstone Arsenal), Brahan is probably the most played course in huntsville because its so user friendly. If you go to huntsville looking for a course to play while I would suggest UAH first and foremost this is course you could check out if you have a little extra time.
