Pros: Easy navigation. Concrete pads. Perfect for introducing newbies to disc golf. Very low potential for lost discs. On hot summer days, most of this course plays in the shade (all of the front nine).
Cons: On occasion, other park users conflict with the disc course. The course holds water if there's been a lot of rain. No benches (but it's a short course).
Other Thoughts: I've rated this course high because it does what it's been designed for so well -- this is an excellent short, neighborhood course. Very beginner friendly and a great place to work on your game. Only two holes over 300 feet (and they are wide open), with the rest around 200 feet. Experienced players can score well with just a putter.

 one of my favorites

Pros: -a good mix of short but creative wooded holes and long, open holes
-really nice trees for scenery
-usually not crowded, though people might be barbecuing or playnig basketball/tennis!
Cons: -only 3 holes over 300' and no holes over 400', so not too challenging lengthwise
-only one tee per hole (red/white level)
Other Thoughts: -can get muddy if it has rained recently because the first 10 holes are in a low area
-one of my favorite courses because even though many of the holes are short, they allow many different shot lines to be played

Pros: Plays well, with little effort finding boxes.

Couple holes where you can really test your drive power.

Mix of both trees and open fields make for great mixup for beginners
Cons: Few really technical holes. Retains water some areas it gets really messy.

Pros: Good tee pads and an easy course to navigate. Nice flow through the woods on the front 9. Some tight shots that require accuracy and good placement. Decent mix of left vs. right dog legs. Nice quick round with little opportunity to lose a disc. A small creek runs through the front nine and woods.
Cons: Mostly short holes with no elevation. Last few holes are wide open with nothing to make them interesting. Easy pars even with bad tee shots./ Easy 2's for big arms.
Other Thoughts: Decent little course if you are in the area. Good, quick play, but not worth a huge effort to go play. Close to tother courses so you can play several in a day.

 Okay Course

Review By: Kiknwitcooper
Played: 65  Reviewed: 11  Exp: 11.7 Years
Pros: Lots of trees that will show how accurate of a player you are. Mix of open and wooded holes.
Cons: Needs more people playing it. Bugs all over the place and even a "Beware of Snakes" sign on hole 12.
Other Thoughts: Not a great upkeep of a course, but there are 3 other courses in the rocky mount area that should play.

Pros: Course has accuracy shots and a few good drive opportunities. Good teepads and nice signs for the holes. Not bad for beginners.
Cons: Park traffic can interfere with play. Some shots do not have legitimate paths to throw down (some on the front 9). Difficult to find first tee for visitors.
Other Thoughts: This course gives you an opportunity to throw a few different shots and many holes are very short. The length is somewhat of a pro and a con at the same time. The good thing is that, if you are less than impressed, there are three courses within a few miles.
Would not recommend a thumber over the tennis courts (# 15).

Pros: Great all-around course with the first ten holes being in the woods, and the back 8 being open shots. This was the first course that I ever played and is great for beginners. There are quite a few trees in the woods, but the brush isn't very thick so losing a disc is never really a concern.
Cons: Hole 3 doesn't really have a distinct fairway. I feel like there is no good way to throw it there. Sometimes, pick-up soccer games interfere with hole 13. Some may argue that a lack of trash cans or benches is a con, but these things never bother me.
Other Thoughts: If you're going to play a course in Rocky Mount and don't have much time, play here.

Pros: Can play this course pretty fast. Tees are close to pins and easy to find. Short course with some technical shots that will test your accuracy. Great for begginers. A few long holes on the back to test your driving ability. Love this course.
Cons: Could use a few trash cans.
Other Thoughts: Safe place to play in a good neighborhood.

Pros: -Concrete Tees
-Technical Front 9
-Good shot variety on back 9
Cons: -Wet and mushy after rain

Other Thoughts: The front nine can decieve you and the back 9 requires a good range of throws.
Great course for trying different shots.

Pros: -Easy to navigate
-concrete pads
-signs on each hole
-good mix of open and wooded holes
-offers many technical shots and a couple of long holes, too
-Low traffic so you can relax and play at your own pace
Cons: -A little wet in some areas. It hadn't rained in a least a week and the course was suprisingly wet
-A couple of holes are near playground, tennis courts, and small family pavillion. Pedestrians were a factor
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a fun course. Not to mention there are 3 other courses all within 3 miles of Englewood Park. RECOMMENDED
