Pros: Beautiful setting on a summer or fall day. You can't beat playing disc golf and getting wine before, after, and during (you can stop in after the front 9). The baskets have a next tee arrow which is convenient and the course is easy to navigate. Tee signs are a nice touch.

I read up before hand that hole 17 was iconic, and it was pretty cool. This is the hole with the basket that hangs inside the barn.
Cons: Old baskets with single chains. The baskets are hard to see despite a recent painting of the pole. Some tee boxes were very close to other hole's baskets. Single basket and tee box locations on every hole. Some tee pads were actually elevated wooden platforms; although I enjoyed this, it could be a safety issue for some throwers. Hole 9 was modified from original, which lead to confusion. Water holes were out of play.
Other Thoughts: Scroll down and read the rating from "swatso" on this course. He hit the nail on the head.

 Fun, but no destination course

Pros: 18 holes with baskets that are older, but still in decent shape. The course runs mostly uphill and downhill with lots of trees and a few water holes. Most of the holes are short, but require good accuracy. Of course, I must mention 17. 17 is the classic hanging basket in the barn, and it is elevated for tournaments, but otherwise a fun play with the mando in between the trees.
Cons: The teepads are a mix of wooden planks that don't allow for either a ful run-up or a step out of the box unless you want to risk your life. Some of the baskets look like they run really close together, so take care if others are nearby. No real open holes and the walk back to your vehicle is all uphill. Ground is very rocky and if it is wet, it can be really slippery.
Other Thoughts: I was pleased to finally play this course after living not too far away, but I left rather desiring to stick to some other area courses. This is not to say that it shouldn't be played, because there are some fun shots here, but rather it is not worth going out of the way for.

 woods and more woods

Pros: The very idea of a DG course and winery on the same property is very cool. Free wine samles. Free private course to play. Good directional arrows on each basket pointing you towards the next tee. White painted rock piles at the base of some baskets making it easier to spot the basket in the dense woods. Tee signs with a hand drawn picture of the hole. The hanging basket on #17 was very unique. Long Trout discs were for sale in the small winery.
Cons: EVERY hole on this course is tight and heavily wooded. Some of the fairways are about 8 feet wide in places. The tees are short with uneven gravel or wood which surprisingly was not slippery.

Single chain baskets.

The terrian is not only hilly but has numerous large rocks/boulders which makes it a tough walk, bring appropriate foot gear and walk/hike carefully.

Not much need of a driver disc on this course as most holes are under 300 or mid range narrow type of holes.
Other Thoughts: Sunday hours are listed as open at 11a, I called during the week asking if I could arrive early and was told "no problem".

I didn't enjoy the wine I sampled, to be frank it sucked.

I laughed at the sign stating "profanity should be whispered"

No encounters with the neighbors as others have mentioned.
