Sadly unplayable 2+ years

Reviewed: Played on:Apr 29, 2019 Played the course:once

Pros:

Several good baskets remain.
Nice restrooms with water fountain outside.
The non-disc golf playing areas were very nice.

Cons:

Grass/weeds 2 or more feet tall in most places which would require at least one spotter on at least 6 holes for an accurate thrower.
No defined teeing areas (I used right side of tee signs).
Rutted ground almost everywhere with lots of water and downed trees as a result of Sept 2018's Hurricane Florence. The heavily wooded areas in the course description are largely gone.
Most course directional signs are damaged and lying on the ground.
Hole 4's basket mangled.
Hole 6's tee post leaning, distance missing.
Hole 7's tee posts are either missing or not easily findable.
Hole 8 tee post distance missing.
Hole 9 tee post distance missing, polehole post and upper chain assembly still intact & upright, but basket has fallen to near ground level.

Other Thoughts:

Although effort was obviously put into getting this course designed & installed, it should not be played in it's current state. Danger of turning an ankle is high and lost discs are almost a certainty. You are likely to have a horrible time playing this course.

I was prepared for weeds, but not all of the rutted ground, muck, standing water and fallen, chainsawed trees.
I am a course bagger and played this one because I was in the area playing Surf City & Wild Turkey. Without an experienced spotter I would have probably lost many discs or spent hours looking for them.

Under Construction But Playable 2+ years drive by

Reviewed: Played on:Mar 18, 2017 Played the course:5+ times

Pros:

Has some good long holes with some trees. Directional signs to the next hole. It has 3 highly technical holes. #7 is a championship hole 2 fight paths and 2 pin placements in heavy woods. Has 2 practice targets. Has straight, right, left draw, woods to open and open to woods holes. Long for a 9 hole course 3065/3470 ft and most of the tees are easily lengthen. Tees were shorten for safety.

Cons:

Still under construction, but playable. Tee pads are rough, Needs rubber tee pads. Still has cut down tree as tripping hazards. Needs some bridges in the wet areas. Fairways need to be better defined. Needs a couple of years to mature. 3 holes under 200 ft from white tees. But 2 holes over 400, 1 over 500, and a 607 from the white tee.

Other Thoughts:

2016 started with a 5 hole temporary course. Then in 2017 move to 10 acre permanent track, part open, part heavy woods 9 hole plus 2 practice targets. Built by volunteers from Kiwanis Club of Hampstead. Written by the designer/ installer/ volunteer.
