Pros: Great location for a course, just needs a little TLC.
I'm a left handed short thrower, I loved it!
I would guess average length for the entire course would be around 275 - 290'' per hole.
In my opinion a lefty designed this coures, very "lefty friendly".

Cons: Not designed for the long armed pro, most baskets are reachable with accurate shots using a mid range disc.
Hard to navigate the course, tee signs, direction of next tee's needed along with distances for each hole, it's a guessing game! Tee and directional signs are needed. At some baskets there are two trails leading out, had to guess which one to take to the next tee!
When we finally got to hole 16 or 17 (the one beind the baseball field) we could not find the rest of the holes.
Found #20 basket as we were leaving.
Other Thoughts: Hit the city up for some course improvements! Signs for sure and possibly some tee pads. New baskets will be needed in the very near future.

 Typical, Tight and Fun

Pros: Front 9 holes are mostly open, while the back 9 are mostly tight, wooded shots requiring a good deal of accuracy. Woods are not too dense, so losing discs is not an issue.
Cons: Holes 17 and 18 are a little confusing as they have recently built a skate park that changes the layout. Hole 18 starts in between the building and the stadium bleachers.
Other Thoughts: Very little human activity. However, the course does play out and around the maintenance building, street and other activity areas, so beware.

Pros: personally I like this course it has a mix of open with some heavy wooded areas as well.everytime I have played it I have met some nice and helpful locals
Cons: you can stand at hole one and see the first several holes and they're somewhat repetitive
Other Thoughts: Play it every year on vacation and will continue to do so

Pros: Very nice, new tees, with new benches at EVERY tee. Beautifully done sheet metal tee signs. Extremely long 20 hole course. Good use of the property as far as hole variety goes.
Cons: The 8 holes in the woods are super-tight, unforgiving, and in a couple of places straight up unfair. Most holes are either straight or dogleg lefts, I can't remember a dogleg right on the course.
Other Thoughts: I first played this course 5 years ago, and it has improved dramatically since then. The new signage worked wonders. I can tell the local DG community really rallied, and some passionate people put a lot of time and effort into bringing this course up to date. Congratulations to those of you who obviously love this course.

Pros: A few nice little warmup holes start you off in the open, followed by a trek into the woods. Last few holes bring you back into the open. Not an excessive amount of distance required, but accuracy is a must. Great range of shots and holes. As much elevation as you're going to find this close to the coast. And most importantly a great local crew who keeps improving the course.
Cons: Since this course has been improved over the years, there has been a lot more play. This has started wearing down some of the vegitation off the fairways. I feel the course is starting to become too open. Bad shots aren't punished like they used to be. (Well, some still are.) Most people probably won't find this to be a concern or con...
Other Thoughts: Teeboxes are in on all holes. Baskets are being upgraded. Holes are being move for extra length and difficulty. If you haven't played this course in a while, get yourself back over to the Eastern Shore.
