Pros: This course is a very fun and challenging beast. It is a hike and a half and that's a good thing. Some real bomb holes and even right off the bat #1 is a huge downhill. Pins change at a good rate and it's kept fairly well too. "Back" 9 can get stuffy in the summer but in the fall it's the crown jewel of a round at the BL.
Cons: The lake is a toxic pit that, when touched, makes your soul dirty so you have to drink holy water. Some kids are always up to their necks in it to sell me back my discs like adolescent mermen who I mock from on high hole #12. Oh and the tee signs are a little rough.
Other Thoughts: If I had a person coming from out of town I would take them to Badlands for it's challenge and it's relative proximity to my house. When you're sweating to beat the band because it's 100 degrees and you look up at the ancient gang hieroglyphics totally obscuring the tee sign telling you where the next pin is remember, it's not called Goodlands.

Bring a tour guide and a bottle of oxygen
Pros: - Elevation, Elevation, Elevation. You're not in the mountains, but it sure feels like you are. Had to take a break after a couple of holes after getting dizzy.
- Tee signs show the multiple pin placements and where the next tee is in relation to where you are... this is something that I have found is often overlooked.
- Nice view of the mountains to the east.
- Practice basket is a nice way to get warmed up.
- Quite a few benches and trash cans.
Cons: - Even with detailed tees I found myself wandering around for as much as 5-10 minutes per hole looking for the next basket. Multiple tees are usually a good thing, but they're a hindrance in this case. The possible pin locations are too spread out.
- The pond is among the nastiest bodies of water that I've seen in my young life. If there's a such thing as a Mutant Lost Disc Monster, I'd bet that it would form in this pond.
Other Thoughts: - I wouldn't recommend attempting this course unless you play it with a local or have 2-3 hours to burn. The elevation is challenging and will flat out make you keel over if you don't know where you're going.

Pros: very well maintained, great challenge for new to intermediate players.
Cons: arggg.....water! if you dont watch your throws on a few holes your likely to end up in the pond
Other Thoughts: love this course. if you have played it in the past few months they have moved the pins, i personally have not been playing for a long time (1 month) so this is the first time ive seen the pins in a new location (little shorter but still a great course) ENJOY

Good local help
Pros: Nice challenging course. There are plenty of long holes with hills buth up hill and everyone's favorite-down hills. Course is loaded with a variety of obstacles. There are ponds, streams, and trees. Plenty of challenges for a good player and a bad player like me.
Cons: Tee box placement from previous basket was also a challenge. Many times we stood looking like tourists.....we were
Other Thoughts: Local help from area players was super. One player joined my group to help, and we enjoyed his company. Thanks Brandon.
