Pros: the park is VERY nice and clean.

baskets are in good shape, Tee boxes are much better than most.

two tee boxes on most holes, they have not just a longer throw, but they provide different angles to the hole.

on a few holes you will be able to throw ur disc without being nervous where its going to end up.

If you keep ur eyes open you will find discs b/c they will be lost here.

Lynchburg rd is worth the drive, very cool rd with a fun car.

Cons: layout: when a disc hits the side of a hill they will roll far far away. Call me old fashion, but i dont think a bike path cut out on the side of a hill is a fairway.

This course is challenging, but when you have to worry about your disc either flying/rolling into the water on just about every hole it takes the fun out of chucking a disc.

The one hole is +150' throw over water to get to a basket (which isnt the bad part), the clearing however, after the tee box is a joke, you are basically guaranteeing a lost disc.

every single hole is on the side of a hill, so even when you have a good throw its going to roll uncontrollably to some far brush or like i mentioned, water.

I cant tell you how many times i would hit the disc RIGHT next to a basket and i would literally roll to where i had to use a fairway driver.

trying to find your way around for the first time is a scavenger hunt for sure. I think i would be able to navigate it easily a second time though.



Other Thoughts: i wish i brought my mountain bike b/c i would have had more fun than bringing discs on this course

I might try this course again, maybe it'll change my mind.

Kiwanis DGC in Staunton is definitely better.
