Grab A Disc And Throw A Round!
12 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Disc golf stores are a rare and special thing and those with courses next to them are priceless. The store seemed fully stocked with a wide variety of new discs for sale. I picked up a gold flower stamped Get Freaky Cryztal FLX Zone while I was there. The store and course are run by a local pro, Charlie Goodpasture who is pleasant and knowledgable and loves talking about disc golf.
The course features one set of carpet tee pads that are not bad actually and are well anchored. There are decent tee signs (the tee signs show two sets of tees but I believe there is currently only one set. The course is supposed to get concrete tees though so the tee signs probably are for the final product). The baskets are nice and it looked like some holes had 2 possible pin placements.
The course has plenty of trees to navigate around and with the recreational distances, it would make for a good summertime course for the area.
Cons: The cons are mostly indicative of the newness of the course and could be easily remedied. The baskets need numbering. There are a few holes where multiple baskets can be seen from the tee and we were not sure if we were throwing to the right target or not. Navigation aids are needed. The navigation is kind of wonky. I strongly encourage using a map or playing with a local guide your first time around.
Other Thoughts: With distances in the 250-300' range, this course is not going to challenge the top area courses, but it's not intended to. Alcohol is allowed as it is a private course and you have to sign a waiver before you can play. $2.00 fee for all-day play. The course will probably be a popular buddy BYOB round course, and good for those seeking plastic and wanting to toss a warm-up round before moving on to one of the areas 18+ hole courses. This course would move up a tick or two in rating once finished and polished up a little.
The course sits in a lot between the store and a church. The store is kind of hard to spot and didn't seem to have a sign yet. Look for the Kastaplast sign in the store's window.

A pleasant nine
9 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: A short distance but fun course located next to a disc golf store. Most players will find the course easy but will be forced to shape lines to get biridies or pars. Mandadories add to the difficulty of the course. Old growth trees are numerous and complicate this engaging nine. The longest drive is 288 and the shortest is 247. The hanging basket is the most memorable feature. Numerous practice baskets are located near the store.
Cons: The course is still being worked on and concrete tees will be put in soon. Players will find some drives are disjointed and locating tee three will be difficult because it is a long walk across the parking lot. The short tees can be troubling to find because the mats fade into the landscape. A high fence along eight is meant to keep discs from straying into the yards of homes. If a disc flies over the fence, it will be tough to retrieve. A drainage ditch usually has water but retrieving a disc should be doable. Watch out for wild life in that area!
Other Thoughts: Charlie has a good plan here and hopefully the course will be finished soon. The course has potential to be that quick stress-free round you need occasionally. Also, the store adjacent to the course rewards those with an ace a free disc.
