Pros: Same piece of land used for the Beast course, with bathrooms on site. Scenic views and fairways with just-right tree density.

Has some holes that are longer than the longest Beast holes (14 is 580', and two others are over 700'!).

Also has some interesting holes tunnel holes that aren't found at either Beast or Beauty, such as 12, 2 and A.

Holes 8 and 18 have half-buried boulders with distances in feet painted on them for measuring distance.

As with Beast/Beauty, 24 holes means two full hours of disc golf.

Probably the most challenging of the three courses at this location.
Cons: Has its own tee pads, but shares baskets with the Beast. Since the Beast is the primary course of the two, a -.5 rating was given to this course on that basis. However, there are a couple of baskets that appear to be Goliath-only (2, C).

Some tough navigation, with low-budget signs (a step down from the Beast). I do like some the by-hand drawings on the tee signs, though.

Has more iffy tee pads than Beast, but less than Beauty. Some blind tee shots are disc-loss hazards, best to use a spotter.

Likely a serious challenge on windy days.
Other Thoughts: The perfect solution for those looking for a slightly more difficult variation on the Beast. Play Beast and Goliath in one day, play Flip the next, and take the next three off.

Pros:
Hole Variety/Course Layout--
Alot of variety! Goliath is almost like a combination of beauty and beast (only with a thicker rough) Theres about half and half "tech" to "big arm" holes. It has some decent elevation aswell.

Course Atmosphere--
Just like Beauty and Beast it is very scenic and picturesque.

Course Maintenance--
Still nice and clean, but it could use a few upgrades. It has moslty concrete tee pads, but a few are just packed ground.
Cons:
Course Navigation--
No maps, and Goliath is harder than both Beauty and Beast to navigate, but you WILL be able to survive the navigation with no map.
Other Thoughts:
Hazards--
Only the thick rough is a hazard. Goliath is not as well developed has a thicker rough than both Beauty and Beast.

--Close to Flip City!!
