Pros: Very very nice park like setting with a variety of challenging holes. Tall canopies (minus 300 or so due to previous hurricanes) keep it cool down below along with a nice light ocean breeze. Course manager's do a good job of policeing and keeping the course looking nice for others. Tee pads are cement.
Very challenging and fun for me. With long and short tees along with a variety of pin placements for each hole to keep the game at Tuscawilla interesting. From what was told to me. The placements are changed monthly or for tournaments and leagues. So there is a definite variety. Tuscawilla has trees. Trees are fun. Enjoy the tree love & rough here.
Cons: I have no cons for Tuscawilla othe than my 1200 mile drive down from Michigan to play it.
Oh...one con. Since Tuscawilla disc golf course is situated in a beautiful city park, other humans use it as well as discers. Passer-bys might be clueless as to what the round plastic thing is..laying on the ground, pick it up and walk off. Be watchful of that.
Other Thoughts: The disc golf atmosphere at Tuscawilla seemed family like to me. Very friendly crowd. The course manager has been very helpful in guiding me around the park and letting me in on a bit of the history behind the Tuscawilla course and how it has matured into what it is now.
When visiting Florida...I will definitly be playing Tuscawilla DGC.
The course manager also sells discs at the park. So look him up and buy one.
Also watch the You Tube videos Tuscawilla has to offer.

B+ for discs Be Bouncing Off Trees
Pros: What I personally like and how this course stacks up:
1) Holes with good risk/reward -- A
2) Holes that have rewarding birdie opportunities -- B
3) More wooded than open - lots of variety of shots required caused by hole shape and topography -- B+
4) Natural beauty (Appalachian beauty preferred) and seclusion -- B-
5) Multi-shot holes with defined landing zones, good risk/reward and multiple options to play them -- NA
Other Thoughts: I ranked this course subjectively based on my own personal enjoyment factor...more accurately my "personal addiction factor". Since I have played a decent number of courses (115 18-hole, 50 9-hole as of early 2009), my hope is that players/explorers who have similar tastes will find my ratings list helpful as they chose courses to play and explore.
Over time, I expect to fill some of my reviews in with more descriptive verbiage...if what I say adds anything to what has already been written. For now, my list is more important to me than the verbiage of my reviews.
I fully expect others with different tastes/philosophies to disagree with me. See my profile for my rating philosophy.

Pros: Great layout. Lightly to moderately wooded. Spatering of trees come into play but with still a clearly defined fairway on every hole (not very technical but still challenging). 3 tee pads on each hole provide a challenge for all skill levels. At least 3 pins locations for each hole. Next tee signs provide excellent guidance for those new to the course.
Cons: Couple of long walks between holes (particularly from 10 to 11), and a couple of holes are on the outside/edge of the park along side a roadway (not a big deal just kind of weird).
Other Thoughts: Played this course on my way through town and will definitely come back every time I am in the area. Found the locals very friendly and helpful. Very nice layouts, one hole was on about an 8' wide peninsula in the middle of a pond.

Fun For All
Pros: Multiple pads and pin placements make this course fun for all levels of players. Lots of trees to challenge your shot making abilities.Lots of shade to be found.Course management is a must for this course with all the trees that come into play. Alot of risk/reward type shots. If you fail to execute perfectly you will pay the price on the scorecard.
Cons: As already mentioned, may be difficult to find the next tee on certain holes the first time there.Hole 11 tee pad is down the park road(approx. 100 yards or so) from 10's basket.13 tee pad is down a side street from 12 basket so if your not aware of this and there are no locals around, it may be frustrating. Check the course map at the pavillion near hole one to help eliminate the confusion.
Other Thoughts: This course offers an excellent disc golf experience for any player.I enjoy the challenge this course provides.Great group of friendly local golfers.Have played an early morning round before heading down the road to Daytona International Speedway for some Nascar racing.

Pros: I love this course has lots of trees so you have to keep your shots down and grip and rip them but dont hit the trees. they put on a great tour. I think it is one of the best on the florida tour.
Other Thoughts: lots of trees mean cooler cooler cooler still it is a florida course so take water with you

Beautiful Lush Florida Course
Pros: Very good course for a variety of skill levels. Has multiple pads for a variety of skill levels. Water is a factor on a few shots. Very green course with lush foliage.
Cons: Doesn't have the variety of hole lengths you would expect from a championship course. Signage could be better as there are some walks between a few holes that will be a little confusing for first timers, but this is a minor problem.
Other Thoughts: 95% of the course is under a large canopy of trees so you stay much cooler then most Florida courses. Definitely worth playing if you're within an hour drive.
