Pros: Its pretty open which is rare for this area and even though it is open it is not really easy from the long pads.

The Short pads are great for new players to learn the game.

I felt like there was a pretty good mix of short and long holes and different shot shapes.
Cons: Its in a somewhat bad neighborhood although I had no issues

Navigation can be an issue even though the course flows pretty well there can be some confusion from time to time and the long pads dont have a sign showing you where they are so you have to search a little.

Some teesigns are missing which isnt nearly as bad as the 2 baskets that are missing.

Graffiti on a few baskets.
Other Thoughts: I really thought the design of this course was solid and if it wern't for all of the issues with equipment and navigation I would likely rate this course much higher but alas it has too many issues for me to justify a higher rating.

if you are close by and wanting to bag a course this one is a decent one to add but i wouldn't go out of your way.

Pros: As the course is never crowded and the front nine holes are fairly open, you can really take your time and work on your form and distance techniques. Get a few friends and work on trash talking and CTP challenges! Four or five holes run along a deep creek, so keep your throws on the left side of the fairway to ensure that you leave with the same number of discs you came out with!
Cons: Several baskets on the course are gone. Some are bent and truly in bad shape. The course winds itself around a park perimeter adjacent to a community center. Not a great area to play solo.
Other Thoughts: With so many new and wonderful courses around the Charlotte area, this course has certainly been neglected. But, if you just want to go out and throw, and live close, the front nine are worth a drive.

Pros: Open and pretty. Reasonably difficult on the back nine. Front nine is way too easy. Most shots are wide open, so it's a great place to learn how to play DG and throw. There is a good variety between the long and short tees. Most holes play very differently, depending on which tees you use. Good use of elevation. Good use of trees and water to create challenging shots.
Cons: I have played the course several times and still haven't figured out Holes 7,8 and 9. VERY difficult to navigate and locate some of the tees. Have not been able to find a guide to tee and hole locations. No tee signs on the course. Very hot in the summer, bring sunscreen and a hat. The course is not in a good neighborhood. I've seen more seedy characters on this course than every other course I've ever played. I don't feel comfortable going by myself. Because the park is mixed-use, it's hard to play the whole course if the other parts are being used (picnics, baseball, soccer practice, etc.)
Other Thoughts: The course is built on the edge of a recreational area with a baseball, soccer and basketball areas. Best to play early to mid-day on weekdays.
Watch out for the creek that runs along the last 5 or 6 holes.Usually very quiet early in the day, so it's a good place to practice. Don't go to the park in the late afternoon or early evening. The fields on the course are being used for soccer, baseball and various kinds of practice. The course is beautiful and fun but got hits for poor flow, bad signage, impossible navigation, and problems with mixed use.
