Pros: Seperated by other park activities,good elevation for florida.Friendly locals,very good technical course.
Cons: Can be a bit challenging to get up and down steep hills covered by pine needles.But well worth the risk for me.
Other Thoughts: Nice place to visit if you want to play real disc golf,not just a grip it and rip it course.This course has improved my game by teaching me control and strategy.One of my favorite courses.

Pros: WP is a shorter, more technical layout with unique elevation changes and gut shots.

-mid range/putter training grounds
-excellent risk/reward lines
-shady canopy
-waste bins
-some signature holes
-unique to florida
Cons: I can sympathize with the grudges put on this course. Can seem insanely tough and treacherous.

-tiring physically
-lost disc potential
-some holes can really become nightmares
-dangerous wildlife
Other Thoughts: In my opinion this course doesn't get the respect it deserves. the day we played was hot as heck but super fun, with one putter ace and plenty of fun navigating the elevation and ridiculously tight, but beautiful and framed holes.

This course could be a mini Magnolia DGC with more cleavage.

Check it out, get ready for #11, and enjoy the challenge or you'll be disappointed.

Pros: A real challenge.
Tees now have rubber pads.
Nobody around on a beautiful Sunday.
Cons: Hole 10 is unplayable due to trees and DANGEROUS due to a steep ridge.
Not a single driver needed for the round.
Other Thoughts: This course had not been reviewed for 1 1/2 years so I thought maybe it would have been improved. I found it to be an OK short course. The front 9 is OK. Still lots of trees. The back 9 has a lot of dangerous climbing up and down a tall ridge. Pine needles made it like ice.FOR YOU OLD GUYS LIKE ME WHO USE CARTS LEAVE THEM HOME. COURSE IS NOT CART FRIENDLY. I will probably give it a try again in a couple of years and see how it goes.

 Unnecessarily Tight

Pros: - PLEASE NOTE: first hole starts to the right rear of the swimming pool
- a couple of uphill/downhill shots that are noteworthy
- beautiful winding course through the woods
- arrows direct you to next tee
- lots of potential for future development
Cons: - nearly every hole is littered with trees
- extremely tight fairways
- NOT an amateur-friendly course
- hole lengths and numbers are written on bucket lids which may or may not be present at any given hole
Other Thoughts: we randomly met the couple that created the course and they even stated that improvements were needed...they simply had to get the pins in the ground...

 unique but so-so

Pros: Very nice walk in the woods- I had my girlfriend with me and she had a blast checking out the surroundings. Lizards, birds, native plants galore. A few unique holes on the back 9 playing up,down, and along a small ridge- one legit par 4.
Cons: First hole was hard to find, could use some saw work on the front 9 in particular. Short. Poor footing on the transitions on the ridge could lead to injury.
Other Thoughts: Each basket has a piece of ribbon attached indicating the way to the next tee- without these navigation would be difficult.

Pros: it is somewhere to play golf,deep woods,pretty area,its on the way to Red Hawk dgc
Cons: you dont need your drivers just bring a mid range and putter. there are a lot of trees that shouldnt be in the fairways that are.I have played all over the country and this is the tightest fairways ever,some do not even look like fairways your just throwing through woods and saplings.
Other Thoughts: wouldn't play it again

 Beautiful park, disappointing course

Pros: The park is very beautiful and huge! The "course" is a pretty walk through the woods. Once holes 1 and 10 have been located it's fairly easy to follow the track from hole to hole.
Cons: The park is huge there are no direction signs to the course. If you don't stop and ask park staff you'll probably never find the course. Even when you do find the part of the park where the course is contained you could still wander around for an hour before you find the first hole.

Evidently the park won't allow any trees to be cut. As a result, many of the holes have small "pimp" trees in the middle of the fairways that should be taken out. (Many of the holes could be sweet mini-golf par 4's.)

Many of the baskets are up on narrow sandy ridges. While some of these placements may be picturesque they will quickly become major erosion problems and are already safety hazards, particularly on the descent sides.

The "tee pads" are nasty old carpets that have been flopped down on unprepped ground, often on uneven group with tree roots.

The park has wonderful opportunities for disc golf, but the course does not realize them.
Other Thoughts: Don't be a dirty discer. Leave the course cleaner than you found it!
