 Snake in the Grass? Maybe.

Pros: This course is not busy and there are few people out where the course is played at. The tee signs are decent and show you where the next holes is, so navigation is not an issue. There are a couple of holes that have some trees as obstacles. One has an archway of trees to shoot through or just throw over the entire row of trees. Another hole allows you to throw around a group of trees on either side to reveal the basket behind them. The grass tees are in perfect shape.
Cons: This place has tall grass roughs and that is nothing but a pain and something to slow play down with. However, at this place it really bothers me even more. Because of the area, it would be an easy place for snakes to hide and I would hate to see a kid having to deal with that. Basket #2 was missing at the time of this review. Most of these holes are just straight shots with "out in the open" baskets. This place holds water and mud rather well. Hole number 9 is a 2-hole walk back to #1. There are no bathrooms or trashcans on the course.
Other Thoughts: The Fun Factor here is without fun. This was boring and kind of irritating. I hate having to look through tall grass for a disc that missed a narrow fairway. Even the protected pins were not worth playing again. It is sad, but this is just not worth stopping at, even if in the area.

Pros: Good beginner course which is the level i am at right now. Just started and took my new discs out to this part to test them out. Easy, easy course. Does have a path mowed out for the player though.
Cons: Not kept up with at all, no markings really, Hole #2 doesn't exist at all anymore. No obstacles practically and Hole #1 is too close to housing backyards and i threw one back in someones property.
Other Thoughts: Need a park to play at its fine, but not recommended for groups to play at together.

Pros: The only good thing about this course is also the one thing that makes it different from all other 9 hole courses I've played. There are quite a few holes that are 400'-500' making it a rare 9 hole big arm course.
Cons: This is the most open, flat, boring 9 hole course I have ever played. It is literally a field of Johnson grass with fairways mowed through it.

Be careful not to turn one over into a backyard on #1. They all lock their gates and have huge dogs.

The #2 basket is missing.

Teepads are non existent and most signs are missing. You have to use your investigative skills to find clues as to where the locals tee off.

The #9 fairway is a swamp after a rain.
Other Thoughts: This could be a decent course if they would plant some trees and put in some good signs and teepads.
