Pros: With little noise and no crowds, this can be a very tranquil place to play a round. The signage is adequate to navigate the course, for the most part, though it would be nice if the baskets themselves were numbered. Multiple pin placements allow for variety; some holes cater to either lefties or righties depending on the placement. The front nine is well maintained and several of the greens are nicely guarded by well positioned trees.
Cons: From hole 12 on, the course is a jungle. I like woods courses, but this place can be EVIL. Fairways are only a couple of meters wide in places, if they exist at all. Nearly every drive disappears into waist deep nastiness. I was tempted on more than one occasion to just close my bag and walk away, the risk of losing a disc was just too great. At least on courses with water you know a disc is lost. Here you can spend 10 minutes ripping your flesh apart in the undergrowth looking for the shots you throw.
Other Thoughts: I give this course an average rating, even though there is really nothing average about it. It is a tale of two courses: if every hole were like the front nine, it would be a 3.5; if all were like the back nine, it would be 1.5 to me. For a good 18, I'd play the front nine twice. For those who venture onto the back nine, bring along a spotter and a weed whacker if you intend on keeping your plastic.
