Pros: Course looks promising especially since its the closest 18 holer near me but be aware... Only things this course has going for it is decent hole placements and lack of other players.
Cons: This course may have been at its prime years ago but it is nowhere close now. Tees are 2X4 barriers raised acouple inches above ground (dont trip) and some are extremely muddy. Fairways are hardly mowed, the roughs are brutal, if u hyzer a shot alittle to much and it goes into the rough be prepared to look for 10+ minutes for your disc. You have no idea where to go after hole 11 unless you have a map. Holes are poles which is a big turn off for me. This course is just plain not maintained well enough to even bother going.
Other Thoughts: Bring bug spray! Great views from its hilly landscape. Bring a map.

Pros: From the first step to the last hole one gets the feel of being at ease. This course has a secluded woodsey feel about it. Parking is great and the start of the course is but a few steps from the first slab. This course makes for a nice day of discs away from the noisy crowds.
Cons: Where does the grocery list start? First the course must have been designed by the Marques de Sade. Up hill, down hill, up hill, down hill was the rhyme to the reason. Luckily I had printed a map of the course or there would have been no way to navigate the holes.The terrain was great for exercise but many time you found yourself walking in washouts up hill to get to the next tee. The tees were dirt pits with railroad ties when the ties were actually there. The holes were post type without chains and usually overgrowth prevented decent recognition.
Other Thoughts: This course overall was designed for the young hardcore player. If the local jusidiction would put a few dollars into it for benching, steps, and maybe a port-a-pottie here and there this course would be a 4plus disc course.
