Pros: Easy to get to if you are around Kingsport and you want to try out disc golf. ***(2017) Someone put the effort in to put numbers on the pins and paint each basket a bright, easy to spot yellow. It has really improved the course.***
Cons: 1. No signs showing the layout of a hole.
2. No signs showing how to get to the next hole.
3. Most of the baskets are unmarked and those marked have a small number painted on the pole ***(fixed 2017 with numbers on top)***.
4. When I played there were a number of trees with white markings on them that made me wonder if they were supposed to be mandatories. One definitely was, but I still don't know about the others ***(fixed: all mandos now have white arrows).***
5. More than once, I threw at a basket from the tee and when I got to my disc looked up and saw two baskets that could actually be the one I should be throwing at.
Other Thoughts: This is not a terrible course. Download the map from here and take it with you because you will need it.
Experienced golfers will bypass this in favor of Winged Deer or Warriors Path. Serious beginners would be better served driving to Steele Creek. ***(2017) The improvements have made the course much better. Currently, I use this as my warm-up course Friday night after work and then go on to play Winged Deer/Warrior's Path/Steele Creek/Sugar Hollow on Saturday.***
***The course could still use better signs at the tee showing which basket to throw at (particularly 7) and where the next tee is or at least a sign with a map at the first tee, but someone is putting a lot of TLC into this course and I wouldn't be surprised to see those improvements over the next year or two.***

Nice Little Course
Pros: Well kept, tees marked, central location. Rotary club did a great job setting up another course in the Kingsport area.
Cons: Course is just slightly confusing. The tees are well laid out and marked, along with distance, but they don't always follow each other, logically.
Other Thoughts: I don't live in Kingsport, havent in over 10 years, but it's nice to see this course. It's bordered by factories, including an abandoned textile mill, and housing that was originally provided by the factories for workers. This is a nice little course, and I will definately be back to play it again next time I am in town.
