Pros: This course has undergone a major upgrade since the beginning of the year (2011). All new baskets, alternate pin positions on most holes, and long tee pads on most holes. With the long tee pads the course is much more challenging than it was before. And rotating the pin positions makes for more variety.
Cons: A compact course so not alot of room for long throws, though a few holes cross over a field so there is some open area for "airing it out." Litter sometimes is a sore point but not as bad as it used to be. It still amazes me how some people can drop their trash two feet away from an empty trash can.
Other Thoughts: This is an interesting and enjoyable course with a range of difficulty from pretty easy to fairly tough. The park staff deserves alot of credit for spending the money and doing the work to makes Pohick a very good course.

Pros: Update: Tee pads are larger, all new Discatchers were installed.
Old Review:Concrete 4x7 tee pads.
Holes 5 and 6 would be the "signature holes" if there were any, they added some challenge to the course.
Great place for beginners.
Cons: $8 to get in the park and an additional $2 donation on the honor system at hole #1. For $10 the baskets should be superior not patchwork.Many baskets had a second row of heavy swing set chains added. Hole 1's chains were so heavy they actually push back against the disc.
Hole 3 faces the road, it seems like it needs a mando, but a mando would increase the safety issue. Hole 3 only had half as many chains as holes 1 and 2, so you get used to power putting to get through dense chains, then you can blow through on 3. 14 had a chance of hitting campers on the right.
Course clearly favors right handed throwers, most holes are dog leg left.
Other Thoughts: Course averages 183 feet per hole, but there are not as many ace runs as you would expect. Course is heavily wooded and there are enough curves to require a second or third shot.
