  a gem in the rough

Pros: nice tee's that have a approximate distance on them. equal amount of left/right/straight holes. need all your shots.
Cons: it is short and the rough needs some refining. there tends to be some errosion issues that are in the works of being fixed.
Other Thoughts: the course is undergoing some slow changes. the course pro has been deployed to iraq for 3 of the past 4 years but has returned to propel the course to a updated look. alternate pin placements are also in the works.

Pros: I love playing disc golf in the woods, and this course provides that basic requirement.

All of the baskets seemed to be in good shape, and there were several nice holes that used elevation change.
Cons: Layout is confusing... I had to walk the front 9 backwards just to figure it out. Directions were non-existant.

Most of the holes felt like they were a little out of place. Hard to describe, but there were only 4 or 5 holes that felt like good golf holes to me.

Many of the holes felt way too short. Plenty of birdie opportunities here. The holes that were challenging seemed to be that way because of poor design (lack of fairway).
Other Thoughts: Not many people play this course - I believe most disc golfers in the area drive to Lexington to play instead.

This course has potential to be a nice course, but it needs a lot of work.

Pros: T Pads have distance stamped in cement. Well manicured, tough technical course, good elevation changes, lots of benches and trash cans. Lots of anhyzers, some hyzers, and just a few open field shots. The woods really make you work on your midrange turns and acuracy.
Cons: It is a short course, with complex tree placement. My biggest gripe would have to be how far you have to walk to the next Tpad. You probably walk 27 holes worth of space to play 18. If you do not have a map with you you will have a very hard time finding the next hole on several occasions. There are also a couple occasions that you are driving perpendicular to a road, where a car could definitly get hit. A tight course shoe horned into a small multiuse park.
Other Thoughts: Glad I played it.

Pros: This is a pretty park with some creative holes that require precision landings. It is well kept and has nice (if narrow) tees and baskets. It has benches, garbage cans, and restrooms betwen 5 & 6 as well as between 12 & 13. It's short enough that I can play it after work but demanding enough that I don't get bored with it. It's never crowded but rarely vacant.

Errant shots can land in significant undebrush, but this isn't vicious bramble. You'll have a tricky shot to get back in play, but you aren't going to lose discs or skin. There are some elevation shots, but no major hills.

Long tees are (sometimes) marked on the ground in orange and make this a more challenging course for experienced players. (Long tees are marked on the map found on the "Links/Files" tab.) I am particularly fond of 5 and 11 long.
Cons: This course has poor flow and no directional signs. The walks between 3-4, 5-6, 10-11, 14-15, & 17-18 can be perplexing. BUT, there is an excellent map at hole 1 which helps. Also, holes 12 - 14 circumnavigate a playground. On the rare occasions when the playground is crowded, you must throw cautiously.
Other Thoughts: There're some sketchy folk who hang out in cars in the back parking lot - I'm just sayin'. Do with that information what you will.

The first hole is the second hardest on the course. If you are new to disc golf, just keep going. You will find easier shots and some open fairways before you are done.

There was some talk about re-ordering the holes as follows: 1-3, 5, 17, 15, 16, 6-14, 18, 4. It plays much better in this order - particularly if you are throwing from the long tees - and has only one awkward walk between 16 and 6.

 Tom & Sara's Walk in the woods

Pros: The course is woven into the woods and fields surrounding the park and makes good use of a limited amount of space. The hole number and distance are stamped into the concrete tee pads.
Cons: The first three holes have very narrow fairways surrounded by trees. This type of course is very intimidating for amateurs.
Other Thoughts: Be prepared to hike up and down hills through the woods.

Pros: Pretty park, lots of shade. Signs and teepads were ok.
Cons: The whole course is way too short and heavily wooded for my tastes. 200 foot holes where you throw the disc and cross your fingers hoping that it weaves it's way through 50 trees is not my kind of course.
Other Thoughts: We saw a scene straight from the show "Cheaters" during our round. Apparently homeboy was up at the park chillin' with his mistress, when his regular girl rolled up and BOOM! She wasn't happy about the 3 years she'd wasted on him, and everyone in the park could hear it!

Pros: Good use of space in a fairly small park (in DG terms) with some incredibly tight fairways. A technical course that requires a lot of gentle sidearm shots and a prayer for a good roll. It's a really nice park with some pretty walks from hole to hole, a creek or two, and a great dog park. I know those things aren't related to disc golf, but the course wasn't that remarkable, so I'm reaching for other things!
Cons: Short and seriously tight fairways--some only 100-150--in which it's too easy to get a bad bounce and end up waist deep in brush. Course can be hard to follow and may require a little bit of exploration. By far the greatest con, though, is the insane underbrush. I don't mind a short, technical course, but this was almost too much.
Other Thoughts: When I went in May 2008, a tree was crashed down on the pad for one of the holes (6?).

Also, the pool there has the most serious security surrounding it. Two fences, one with prison-style barbed wire on type!

Pros: Neat little course, very tight wooded shots. Decent terrain change. No water. Well worth the drive.
Cons: Can get lost trying to find holes if you aren't familiar with the layout. Could use signs stating where the next hole is!
Other Thoughts: Doesn't get a lot of maintenance since Frankfort disc golf club was abolished. Still a nice course none the less!

Pros: It's a great course for beginners. There are a verity of shots. It is not a long course, which that will help new players to gain confidence.
Cons: Heavily wooded.
Other Thoughts: It is an overall nice course. There are nice numbered tees with distance and Par limit stamped into nice concrete tees. Would recomend this course to anyone, beginner, or even pros.
