Pros: The course plays the same layout as a flat fairly open golf course. The fairways are wide and grassy, great for learning and practicing distance rollers. There are scattered trees if you miss your line and end up off to the side, and a few holes have some woods on a really errant shot. A creek and a pond come into play on a few holes, and these holes also have some good elevation changes to mix things up a bit. Most holes are very long, and give you lots of opportunities to rip a drive or two.

The longest set of tees have nice asphalt surface, and benches. There is water scattered around the course to refill on a hot day, very nice with this long a walk. You can rent a cart if that's something you'd enjoy, kind of a fun perk. Having some water and the golf greens ob adds a little bit of 'risk' and makes you think a little more on some holes. There are scorecards with maps, and the flow is easy to follow. Most of the baskets are visible from the tee, the rest are usually right where you'd think they'd be.
Cons: Playing here gets really repetitive. If you want to work on your distance or practice rollers, this is an awesome place to do it, otherwise, you're throwing a pure distance shot off basically every tee, and often another long drive after that. Lots of baskets are out in the open, so the only challenge is the length. We play at a very different pace than ball golfers, so you might do some waiting if it's a busy day. It would get expensive to play here very often, though it's cheaper in the evening on weekdays. It would be nice to have actual disc golf scorecards, you have to guess at the distance by how much longer or shorter it is than the golf pin.
Other Thoughts: This is a totally different kind of course that's worth a round or two. It's a little expensive to be a regular stop for me, and gets too repetitive to really test many different skills. Beginners will be quite frustrated by the length. More experienced players won't find much variety, this is purely a big arm air it out type course.

Pros: The golf cart made it the least exhausting round of DG I've ever played. Super long open holes which was great for practicing distance. Huge asphalt tee areas. No searching for discs in woods, as it is so open.
Cons: Can feel repetitive with so many looong OPEN holes. Single row of chains on baskets. Pricey.
Other Thoughts: Hey it was a good time. Got to drink beer and drive a golf cart. Great course for big arms, or anyone needing practice throwing for distance. Saw lots of deer which my female friend enjoyed. Course was pretty wet after a rain but with the cart our feet didn't even get wet. The ball golf greens are OB, which would have been nice to know before the round.
