Pros: There are tee signs at each hole, providing hole number and distance to the basket. Two sets of tees on each hole, longer tees are asphalt, while the rec tees are natural. Course was fairly easy to navigate, even without a map.
The fairways are defined, despite the tightly wooded course. Some elevation changes on the back nine, as well as OB areas marked by the road. The course is separated from the rest of the park, so there shouldn't be too much pedestrian traffic to worry about.
This course is located in a nice family park, with ample parking and plenty of other activities to do for the non disc golfing family members. Bathrooms located near the course.
Cons: The Tee pad for #13 is hard to find, and might be missed if you aren't paying attention. Some next tee signs are incorrect and can be a little misleading. On some of the holes, there is a lot of foliage that may make finding your disc on an errant throw difficult.
Other Thoughts: I thought this was the best of the Fayetteville area courses, which isn't saying much in my opinion, because the other two are one star rated at best. This course is fairly flat and well shaded, so it doesn't get too hot during the summer.
I thought too many of the holes faded to the right, and they started becoming a bit repetitive, and didn't provide enough of a challenge to use other shots. The holes aren't particularly long, but accuracy is at a premium as most wooded courses are. Perfect throws will lead to fairly easy birdie attempts.
The course is very convenient to I-95 and is a nice diversion if you need a break from driving to play a little disc golf.

Pros: Beautiful wooded course. There are tee signs on every hole(except #17). There are benches on several of the holes. The design takes advantage of the available elevation. If you played this course on a regular basis it would force you to become accurate. The baskets were in excellent shape and the tee pads were concrete with enough room. There were markers for shorter dirt tees, these were painted gold. After you play you can take a short hike down the river trails for great views of the Cape Fear River.
Cons: The front 9 is flat and each hole plays about the same, though the fairways do vary from a left to right fade. Can be a bit hard to find for a first timer. Some of the next hole markers are incorrect.
Other Thoughts: I went back and forth on what kind of rating to give this course. I would rate the last 7 holes a 4, but the first 11 are a 3 at best. Nothing wrong with them, just alot of the same. If it's your first time going there take a right after you enter the park. Start looking to your left and you will see the baskets for 2, 3, 4. Go past this until a dirt lot on your left. The first tee is up past the playground.
-Favorite hole was #13, a nice downhill shot. #16 was really nice, with a deep unforgiving creek bed lining the right side of the fairway.

Pros: Every hole is in the shade, making for a good summer course. The course does not interfere with the rest of the park, although the main park road is in play on a few holes. Conveniently located close to I-95.
Cons: The holes get fairly repetitive. A few holes have some character due to elevation change and nearby creeks, but for the most part, it's just straight through the trees. Many holes don't have much of a fairway. Hole #13 is susceptible to flooding, rendering the hole unplayable at times. The #1 tee is hard to find if you don't know where you're going.
Other Thoughts: A good course to play if you're already in Fayetteville, but probably not worth it if you're coming from out of town.
