Pros: This is a very nice 9 hole course that is well maintained, being next to the Allen recreation center and all. This was my second time there and my first completion of the course, went halfway first time. No. 1 is open and a bit lengthy - had to ask a nice lady and her dog if I should go ahead and shoot ( hanging under a shade tree not noticing any disc action ). They kindly moved on and I made a nice upshot and putted for par. The wind was light and southerly like you want it. I nearly put the no. 2 drive in the water but a tree kicked it back in play. I did put it in the water on 3 about 5 feet out, there was a handy stick so I took my penalty and proceeded with my recovered disc. No. 4 drives over 125ft of water or so. My shot was hard enough to go across even though hitting one of the big tree branches on the other side. I lost a disc there last time ! Five went ok, I was asking if the fishing guys over there were ready. Had never seen hole 6 - found it no problem. Some trees in the way , no water on that one. From there hole 7 - I went to the right too far and across the back parking lot. You really want to stay to the left of the back parking area and you'll run right into the no. 7 teepad. 7 is a fun left hander around the edge of the lake, a little downhill. Would be a good backhand shot, though I'm typically gonna use a forehand. Head south towards Bethany and you'll find the no. 8 teepad heading back left through the trees, kind of narrow. The basket was in the middle for my visit. Thick branches and brush both sides, but if you penetrate to the left you'll go down the hill into the lake. I found an extra disc while looking for mine in the left side brush. Yellow Hornet midrange. I found my disc too. No. 9 is my water nightmare! I had stood on the teepad once before just to gauge it. Nope I can't throw that far LOL. I threw one straight into the water, reshot from the tee curving one to the right edge stayed 3 foot out in the water. A nice girl fishing with her Dad helped me get the disc with her pole LOL. I'm adding penalties as I go. From there I tried to sail it over the trees, but it landed 35 ft up in a tree and stayed. From my new estimated lie I threw across the width of the water. Then threw a great upshot from the grass over there. That put me at 8 and I two putted to finish. Gave myself a much deserved 10. I was looking at the way across the water on satellite map and it's shorter across by the fountain, not straight on. Difference of over forty feet, which I can't handle. Several fisherman around this part of the water wondering when I would leave , I'm sure. If I can figure out hole 9 across the water it will be a lot of fun. It was anyway - beautiful spring day !
Cons: Kind of short teepads. Hole 9 is a bit much for some of us still in training.
Other Thoughts: This isn't the only course with water threatening your precious discs. Enjoy!

Pros: Beautiful fairways, cement tee pads, DISCatcher baskets, and great looking signs. Course traffic was very minimal which makes for a peaceful game.
Cons: Only 9 holes. This not a normal con from a small course, but since the course is so beautiful, you just want more. The pin placement on some the holes are in odd locations as well, like hole 8's alternate pin.
Other Thoughts: Beautiful! One of the best kept courses I've been to. Great wide open fairways, rolling hills, and 3 lakes make for a wonderful game. Though most of the holes are fairly risk free, there are still a few baskets close to the lake that that make for risky play. Hole 9 requires at least a 300 ft drive just to make it over the lake.
