Pros: I played this course last year and it was a solid 3.5. They have added 9 tees and 18 more baskets to this course. First the front 18 are decent holes 4-6 let you throw on some open areas but mostly these are wooded holes that are semi demanding that you hit your line. The new back nine is a whole new beast that is probably the most advanced 9 holes you will find in this area. Every hole has the potential to make your score look real bad. The baskets for A and B placements are red and yellow and permanent. So you can go to one place and pretty much play two 18 hole rounds. This is my favorite course in the area now replacing union city.
Cons: Not really to beginner friendly.
Other Thoughts: Hole 9 ends right at hole 19 but if you play the course in order you will walk across the street to play 10 then have to walk from 18 back across the street to pretty much 9's basket to 19 tee pad. They should change holes 10-18 to 1-9 then change holes 1-9 to 10-18 and this course would flow much better.

Too wooded

Pros: Concrete Tees
Nice baskets
Cons: Too heavily wooded, I believe they have one hole that is not in the woods. Too redundant.
I played the alternate pin locations and they literally all played to a right hand players forehand.
Not enough variety for me.

Alternate basket locations reduce rating

Pros: Concrete pads, little ground foliage, baskets, nice lines (for original basket locations)
Cons: Alternate basket locations!, no course map at kiosk, hole signs do not indicate distance or even location for alternate baskets and you can not see most of the baskets from the tee pad, navigation to next tee pad
Other Thoughts: Would get a better rating if I would have played with the pins set at the standard locations. The alternate basket locations do not flow well at all with the course and consist of either huge backhand or forehand hyzers that will still not get you in the circle. You can only do so much with an air shot without trying to throw crazy rollers on each hole to get enough left/right. Rest of the course is great but many of those alternate locations are garbage IMO.

Challenging but fun

Pros: This course is well maintained and is a challenge for all levels of players. Most of the baskets are easily visible from the tee. Although the course is heavily wooded there is still plenty of clear space to let your disc fly.

 Good Challenge/ Great Park

Pros: This is a good layout in a really great multipurpose park. The front 9 played you in and out of the woods, up and down and also along open grassy areas. Pin placement often meant different approach shots were needed so it kept things interesting.
Cons: Par might be a challenge for beginners, but don't be discouraged. This course gives you enough room to shoot and will allow your game to improve.

Sometimes coming out of the woods you forget that others might be using the park. Keep an eye out for others on 3 (pavilion/kid park), 11 (pool) and 17 (dog park).
Other Thoughts: Plays better the second time when you have a better idea where to throw.

I was there in the heat of the summer and the park was well used, but the course still flowed nicely and the woods were very passible - not too hard to find an errant disc!

 nice course

Pros: Very nice course, bring all the shots you know, some of the holes really makes a player think about their shot. Lots of left to right holes, also several holes with birdie opportunities. Plenty of parking with a well used practice basket. Tees are long and trippy and signs at the pad show the next tee.
Cons: Some of the trails can become slick during and after a rain. The last day we played footing on some holes was tricky because of all the acorns falling but this won't be a problem during the rest of the season. Hole 3 could be a problem because of ppl being at the pavilion also on 17 you have to play around the dog park.
Other Thoughts: Great course, with plenty of challenges but also several chances for birdies.

Pros: 1. The park itself was a nice place. Lots of trees and the paths that cut through the course were very nice.

2. The designer did a very good job of using the property to make this course.

3. The front side is moderately wooded seemed to be the easier side to score for me.

4. The Back side was VERY wooded with very small windows to play into. I found this 9 to be a great challenge.

5. The tee pads were in nice shape and allowed for long run-ups.

6. The signs on each hole were pretty accurate descriptions of the holes.

7. I found that this course required a wide array of shots. Unfortunately I was missing a few of them. :)

8. Parking and the practice putting area were nice as well.

9. This course will make you think. I felt that several of the holes begged you to bite off too much while playing safe was the better option.
Cons: 1. Finding the next tee was a problem on a couple of holes.

2. We had problems with a few kids on the course and some fans for the ballparks that are very close to some holes on the front 9.

Other Thoughts: This was my first time playing a course that I would consider to be HEAVILY wooded. While this course in no way suites my game, I must admit that I really enjoyed playing it. Only 1 hole was I able to get on the tee and just let it fly. Every other hole, I was trying to find the right line and evaluating the risks vs the rewards of different shots. Playing this course will greatly strengthen the technical aspects of my game. I look forward to a return visit in the near future.

 Better than rated

Pros: A nice, technical course that requires all the shots. You got holes that go from the open to the woods, from the woods to the open, stay in the woods, and stay in the open. There were BIG left to right holes, and BIG right to left holes. For as tight of a course as it was, it had some pretty good length, and that made it a tough course. There are some birdie opportunities too though. There is a good use of elevation, and it makes for some fun shots. The elevation can cause trouble, on 11 for example, and make you avoid ending up in certain places. It punishes you when you miss your line, and you'll be scrambling for par. It also rewards you with birdie opportunities if you hit your line. The course was very well kept, and the teepads were nice and long.
Cons: Navigation can be an issue, with multiple paths near the basket on some holes that lead to nowhere. And as previous reviews have stated, there is a long walk from 10 to 11. There was a softball game going on while we were there, and some people were pretty close to the fairway. There is also a dog area that you really need to throw over on 17 that you don't want to throw in and it gets in your way.
Other Thoughts: I came here expecting a decent course and it turned out to be one of the better courses I've played. Probably my 2nd favorite in western Kentucky, behind Madisonville. I really enjoyed my round.

 Good college town course

Pros: While not situated on the campus of MSU, this course is only a hop-skip-and-jump away from it. A well used practice basket is placed adjacent to the parking lot and first hole. This technical course forces shot shapes and distance control to have a shot at birdie. The tee pads are adequate sized and grippy. The tee signs are exceptional about OB, tree lines, creeks, and whatnot. They even indicate where the next tee pads are. The baskets are typical Innova discatcher with chastity belts included that are fairly easy to spot in the woods. Holes range from very short and technical to mostly open and long though there are no true par fours here. The elevation is used well here for several down then up shots (1, 9, 10), a couple with severe drop offs (11, 12) and others that use the gradual slope to add or subtract effective distance.
Cons: Unless you look at the tee signs to see where the next tee pad is, navigation here is a problem. There are multiple points on both the front and back nine where walking trails intersect the greens and one path leading you to the next tee while the others to oblivion. There are no signs to point the golfers in the right directions. As others have mentioned, after number 10 you have to walk all the way around the swimming pool to get to number 11. This is a needlessly long walk that could have been avoided. While this course forces multiple shot shapes, all of the hyzer holes (for RHBH) are roughly the same distance. Throw a ~265-275' shot and you'll be within the 10m circle on every single one of these holes. With the amount of walking trails that come into play on the course, several are on blind shots causing a safety issue for non-golfers. Number 3 has no gap to get to the basket but to get there, the thrower has to go over and back from a walking trail and a shelter where other park users may be cooking out or picnicking. This is not a quiet course, especially on the back nine. The large swimming pool on busy days is flooded with parents and lots of loud kids. Good luck concentrating with that going on.
Other Thoughts: Murray gives a decent challenge and can be lots of fun for casual golf in-between classes or in your spare time. Playing here in tournaments will cause the gaps to tighten up, the trees to grow bigger and the baskets smaller but with good clean driving, lots of birdie chances await. This is a good beginner course that forces the player to learn shot shapes and touch on several of the fast greens. It plays well for advanced players to land their shots in certain places and hit their putts through the woods.

Pros: great course. has 18 holes 12 of them with alternate pin locations and one has an alternate pad. Right near the university so easy access. Some tough holes with some hard lines but mostly if you shoot a well placed shot you will get your deuce. The holes with alternate pin locations are nice. They add a variety of shots and challenges to the course. The parks do a great job of keeping the course nice and neat. The course has a lot of potential for new pin locations and new pad locations.The tee pads are very nice as well as the tee signs. great guys around the area and there is usually always someone who will play with you. there are a couple of local pros in the area as well.
Cons: The only cons at this course are the potential opportunities to lose your disc. All in the woods so a lot of leaves to deal with. Writing on tee signs and basket for aces.
Other Thoughts: There is a club that meets every sunday at 1:30 and tuesday at 5 oclock.
