Pros: - Ridiculous variation!!! You never feel like you're playing the same hole. Even the wooded ones each have their own flavor and flare.
- Fair yet challenging fairways on the wooded holes.
- Very high risk/reward factor on water holes
- Score cards & map available on hole #1
- Works on a variety of your shots & is a great place to try out different discs to see what works best for each hole.
- Fun factor for this course makes it very memorable.
Cons: - Very little signage. Tees are worn out dirt patches with black (long) & yellow (short) squares imbedded in the ground. They're covered in grass/dirt in many places and non-existent on most wooded holes. Markings on trees or little orange flags (which you'd never see unless you were looking for them) are used to designate tees in woods. There are arrows usually pointing to next tee from each basket, but that's about it. Definitely print the course map (or grab one on hole #1) for navigation.
- No tee signs with hole info. It's a commodity to some, but it helps in determining power behind a drive, etc.
- Dirt tee boxes. Concrete or flypads would REALLY help this course. Especially in the woods during the wet season.
- During the wet season (late fall, early spring) this course can basically be flooded. I actually loved it, but it could be pretty annoying if you're not prepared for it.
Other Thoughts: This is my second most played home course. It's VERY fun and has a fantastic risk/reward factor. The water holes are intimidating but very reasonable even for a novice (which I am). There are tight fairway wooded holes, a couple nice open "grip-it-and-rip-it" holes, and some pretty sweet pin placements.

There's only one hole you actually drive over water, but it's VERY doable yet still intimidating. The other water holes you're driving parallel to them (water is always on the right so hyzer shots will be your best friend on those) and have a really neat feel to them.

The wooded holes are fair and take a good amount of forethought before launching, but can be highly rewarding as well as frustrating if you just can't hit a good line.

The course layout, hole variation, and just flat out fun factor is a 5 here. With the lack of signage, concrete pads, and better on course navigation, I had to go with a 4.5.

CAUTION: Careful on holes 6 & 7 as a highway off to the right is reachable on a runaway anhyzer.
