Pros: The course plays through a hilly and forested small piece of property that is disc golf exclusive. Nearly every hole has some kind of elevation change, with some great downhill holes and a nice shot across a small ravine. There is a variety of lengths, from short ace runs through the trees to a long bomb with some elevation and distance markers to see how far you threw. You'll need right and left turning shots to thread through the trees on a few holes here, it plays pretty balanced for right or left handed players.

There are dual tees for each hole, with decent tee signs at both sets of tees showing hole layout and distance. There are two pins in the ground on each hole, an orange set and a yellow set, and several have alternate pin placements for one or the other. With the dual tees and dual pins, there are 4 possible shots on every hole, often with some very different lengths and hole shapes for a ton of variety.
Cons: This course feels quite neglected. Many of the long tees are overgrown and seem not to be used anymore. Brush and weeds have grown in on many holes making for some disc eating fairways even with a good shot. Many of the paths up and down the ravines and elevation changes are eroded and slick, especially in the rain when they get quite muddy (the staircase on one hole is a good start, more would make the course much easier to get around).

Several signs were not in good shape, making it hard to know where to throw. This was compounded by not knowing which position the pin was in when there were alternate placements, so we had to walk ahead on several holes to see where to throw. There are a couple walks between holes that are not obvious, and could really use some more next tee signage.
Other Thoughts: This is a very fun 9 holer with a ton of variety and some very cool elevation changes. With better maintenance, it could be rated even higher. I definitely recommend a quick stop here if you're in the area, and both sets of pins are worth playing if you have time for multiple rounds. Beginners will find the course to have reasonable lengths, but there are lots of places to lose discs and tight fairways that could be frustrating. More experienced players will find some nice challenges here to go along with some fun ace runs, and more variety than you'll find at nearly any other 9 holer.
