Pros:

Has 4 baskets
Has 4 tee areas
1/2 of the course has some elevation in play

Cons:

Has no tree's
The FREAKING walk from basket 4 back to hole 1 tee

Other Thoughts:

Not much to say about this "course" (if you can call it that)

What you have is 4 old Innova Disc Catchers in a wide open park between the highway. There is a Circle of mulch around both the tee areas and the baskets.

So 4 shots, all 4 are mostly south and then a very long walk back to the first hole.

Would I play here again? Oh heck no, this is a waste of time. Only good if you want so field work (if it's mowed) with a few baskets to aim at. I played it forward and then backwards to make it a 7 hole course instead of just 4. That, and I am not a fan of just walking without a purpose.
So no, this is an example of a course I play so you don't have to.

We Don't Need No Stinkin Clubs.

Reviewed: Updated: Played on:Jun 26, 2022 Played the course:once

Pros:

Maintenance is high being on country club land. A striped pole marks each tee and a 10ft wide fairway is mowed to each pin. But, even if you're off the fairway, the rough is kept pretty low. A large circle of mulch surrounds each teeing area and basket, and there's another few more feet outside the mulch that have been mowed. A mown strip goes from each basket to the next tee area too.

The first two are longer holes that can challenge everyone. Top players can try to get the 2s, while mid-level players can work on precise upshots after a good drive, and the newer throwers can attempt getting their second drive close.

The second two are the more "fun" shots. A shorter uphill shot for 3, then a big downhill toss for hole 4.

Cons:

There's four holes. It seems like the land could have held 7 to 9 shorter holes, but I assume the club didn't want to run the risk of their apartments getting a disc tossed into them.

The long walk back to the parking lot after hole 4. It's the entire course you've just walked all the way down. Maybe a few holes in reverse to the tee poles?

A really bad shot could go over the fence of 4 and onto the road, but it would have to be really, really bad.

Other Thoughts:

This is a fine place to air out some big drives without risking your plastic. Yeah, it's only 4 holes but I'm sure some creative tracks could be made if this was your only option. It's a fine compliment to the courses nearby, and it allows you to throw max distance if you want.

In the end, this course is a quick one and not really that bad with the maintenance put into it. Give it a quick run-through just to say you did.

Yes, this place is maintained

Reviewed: Played on:Jun 26, 2022 Played the course:once

Pros:

Squished between Highway 7 and the road to the country club, the Disc Golf here has just four holes with unique mulch teeing areas.

Fairways are mowed, which was actually a bit of a surprise given how few people probably play here, and there's rough in the form of tall grass, which isn't very thick, so you're not really in danger of losing discs. There's mulch around each basket, and additional grass mowed that forms the green, somewhere around 12 meters in diameter.

Hole 4 is downhill, and hole 3 is slightly uphill, making them spicy ace runs. All four holes will challenge distance perception and control, if that's the sort of thing you care about. All but hole 3 are pretty long, so this can be a good place to grip it and rip it.

Cons:

There's hardly a tree in sight. While there's elevation change on the last two holes, the first two don't have any, so this place is really just four baskets and teepads in a line.

The holes are fairly long, so unless you're really good, you can have an excellent shot that lands off the fairway in some tall grass. You'll still have an easy upshot or even long putt (depending on the hole and your skill level), but it is frustrating to have to walk into tall grass in that situation. It's almost as if this course was designed for bombers who have no other skill.

You have to park across the street in the country club parking lot 300 feet from the first tee, then walk a quarter mile once you're done with the course. Really, the return on investment really isn't there for how little you're getting here.

Other Thoughts:

There's not a whole lot to say here, folks, it's only four holes. You can sort of play the holes backwards as you work your way towards where you parked, to have a seven or eight hole course. However, after just four holes, I was ready to move on.

While you're not getting much here, it is a quick play, so there's no reason not to come here once or so if you're on your way to some better courses in the area.

4 baskets is better than none. 2+ years

Reviewed: Played on:Dec 9, 2020 Played the course:once

Pros:

There is a lot of open space to air out long shots. DISCatchers are top of the line and in good condition.They also have flags on top to show wind strength/direction. There is mulch around the baskets and the tees, so mud shouldn't ever really be a problem. Large black and white striped poles mark the tees. The poles plus the mowed paths basically make it impossible to get lost. All in all, it's good infrastructure for a practice area.

Some minor elevation is in play; hole 3 has a bank deep left of the basket, making it tricky to approach with a forehand, and hole 4 is a fun, downhill shot.

Cons:

There are only 4 holes, and they are quite boring as there is not a single tree or obstacle in play. Then, once you finish hole 4, you have a 10 minute walk back to your car.

Only about a 10 ft path is mowed, so there's basically no point in trying to land in the "fairway." The "rough" was mowed to low-shin height when I played in December, but if they let it grow out much more, then discs could become harder to find.

The pole for 4's tee was either missing or not put up - not sure which.

Other Thoughts:

If you have 300 ft of power, then holes 3 & 4 will be birdie chances; holes 1 & 2 will not be.

Are you looking for a place to do fieldwork or practice putting?
Are you a course bagger?
If you answered yes to either of those questions, then this is the place for you! Otherwise, go play somewhere else. Literally, you will have more fun at almost any other course in town.

There's enough empty space that you can practice drives/do fieldwork without even being on the "course."

The parking lot is gated, so I don't think the general public is technically supposed to play here. If you're just playing it to add the the list, I wouldn't worry too much about, you'll be in and out quickly (the gates were open with no one on duty when I played on a weekday afternoon).

Um not much 2+ years

Reviewed: Played on:Aug 29, 2013 Played the course:once

Pros:

It has basket that have a nicely mulched area and mowed green, the "teeing area" is mulched and mowed in a circle, there are nicely mowed paths from tee to basket

Cons:

4 holes, only path is mowed and these are 300ft+ holes so always on green is not possible,

Other Thoughts:

Some mowed landing zones would be great, best part is, basket at new developments is becoming more common YAY!!!

Practice field, not DG course 2+ years

Reviewed: Played on:Aug 7, 2013 Played the course:2-4 times

Pros:

Nice baskets, wood chipped greens. Tees are at least marked.

Cons:

No signs, no trees or obstacles of any kind.
Course runs one direction. When done, walk the entire length back, or play safari holes back.

Other Thoughts:

Not really sure if this is a Public course or not. Seems like it may be for the apartment complex across the street.
Played once to mark it off my list, won't bother playing it again.

Not worth a Drive, could be okay for practice 2+ years

Reviewed: Played on:Jul 28, 2013 Played the course:once

Pros:

Navigation between holes is extremely easy because there is a trail mowed connecting all the holes. 10/10

Navigation on individual holes is just as easy because of the trail mowed. Plus every hole is just straight and open so you can see the baskets from the tees. 10/10

Discs are pretty easy to find. With the exception of the trail mowed for the fairways the grass is upper ankle height and it can kind of hide discs but it's still totally open. 7/10

Cons:

There are no obstacles except for a line of trees if you go way left on the first hole. Not good disc golf land anyway. 0/10

No variety of openness as they are all wide open. 0/10

No variety of shot paths, long and down the middle is always good. 0/10

No decisionmaking required. 0/10

No alternate hole positions. 0/10

There are no benches, waterfountains, or trees that provide shade. The grass isn't mowed very short except for the fairways which are one mower tread wide straight from tee to basket. Comfort level 1/10

This course is not good for experienced players because there are no obstacles but not good for beginners because of the length. Pretty much all this course is good for is learning how to drive. 1/10 on challenging all levels

There are no tee signs, benches, fairways of reasonable width to walk in. Course maintenance 2/10

First two holes are completely flat. Third hole is flat at the tee but there is quite a bit of elevation right around the basket and on the fourth hole. 2/10

There is a bit of variety in distances. First two are pretty long, third is pretty short, and fourth is average. 3/10

This course has great baskets, but some pretty weird tees. The tees have a pipe marking the tee with mulch surrounding it in a dome shape. The baskets have mulch around them. 4/10

Other Thoughts:

I'm not sure if this should really be called a course, it's more of a practice facility as there are only 4 holes. I have driven by this course once and played it once and I've never seen anyone else playing it. My rating does not take into account the number of holes. There is probably enough room here for six holes that could even be of a little better quality in terms of using elevation.

The sole challenge of this course is only in the distance, but there is no accuracy required. Overall challenge 2/10
