Pros: Heavily wooded course that will either boost your ego or break your spirit. It's a very challenging course with a couple of water hazards from which you'll never retrieve a disc unless you go swimming. There are a few open holes that give a break from the wooded holes. The course is a great place to practice your technical game rather than your muscle game. The course plays well for both sidearm and backhand throwers, though you're best served by using both.
Cons: A few of the holes are almost too heavily wooded to be played, especially holes 4 and 14. If you have the misfortune of ending up in the bushes as a result of a bad ricochet, your odds of saving par are slim. The course is also very muddy, especially in the winter and spring, so pack extra shoes.
Other Thoughts: VP was the first course I played, not the most encouraging experience. If you're a beginning player, you may want to try Shillito a few times before heading to VP.

Pros: A mostly wooded course that was well thought out and fun to play. I visited both Lexington courses on the same day. The first one (Shillito) I thought bored me a bit but was packed with throwers. This one was fun, challenging but was empty as could be. I couldn't figure it out.
Most of the holes are in the woods and are well marked. There is a good amount of distance walking between some holes and can be confusing the first time through. However for the most part, there are well placed signs that help tremendously. The back 9 was longer than the front and caught me off guard. I would love to have this course closer to me so I could play it more.
