Pros: Concrete tee pads, signs, few water hazards, unlikely to lose a disc, multiple pin positions
Cons: TOO LONG!! Too wide open - if there is a light wind everywhere else, expect 10-15 mph shifting wind on this course. Very few skill shots. No benches. Bathroom @ hole 1 only. Garbage @ hole 1 & 16 (& close to 12)only.
Other Thoughts: This is a "Throw as hard as you can every single time and hope for par" course. Very few holes offer women or beginners a chance to par much less birdie even in the short positions. Pictures updated 6/2011 but not hole information.

Pros: The course is wide open you can really let go. Great place to play if you are new to disc golf. Don't let hole 4 intimidate it really isn't that far to the basket. But the real pro of this course is the people that play here. Played two rounds the people were helpful and friendly. On my second round I played with a local named Chris and a visitor named George the two of them made my visit to the course a great experience. George was a beginner but he was able to keep his disc in play and did not slow the game up at all. If you are in Memphis go out and play this course for no other reason that to meet the Memphis disc golfers.
Cons: There no teepads on this course. only trenches and potholes. You could break a leg doing a run up on hole 10. And for goodness sake get some signs. I would still be out there looking for the teepad on hole 15 if one of the local.players had not come along and told me where to go.
Other Thoughts: The gentlemen who helped me find the teepad on hole 15 informed me that the local players have already paid to have tee pads installed, He didn;t mention the sinage problem. The area around Memphis has some turly classic disc golf courses. With a little work and the judicious planting of a few trees and shrubs this course could join the ranks of great courses surround the city.
