Pros: Well maintained.
Cons: It's out there a ways. Slightly east of east bumf@$?. It's wide open and flat. Boring and doesn't present many challenges.
Other Thoughts: If you're desperate to add courses to your resume go ahead but I wouldn't recommend it. You're better off going to an open field and throwing. You'll get the same enjoyment and feeling.

One of the nicest!
Pros: Two concrete pads & two baskets on each hole for variety, super nice, clean, and well maintained park with plenty for everyone, a lot of open holes, some with a few with trees, very little fairway overlaps, most days has no traffic (since it's so far from everything.)
Cons: Is a long drive from almost anywhere. Some would say that the course is boring w/no elevation changes but, hey, that's the topography here; FLAT!
Other Thoughts: This course ruined me for all other courses! This was the first course I ever played and I've since played on 6 others (in 3 different states) and though some are nice, they all come up short compared to this one. The park is very large and adjoins the sound. It has modern playground equipment in several areas, benches, picnic tables, and shelters throughout. There is baseball/softball, volleyball, basketball, horse shoes, boat ramps, equipment rental (including canoe's), picnic areas on the water...something for everyone. The course is well kept (almost manicured) with a mix of tree'd and open holes. (True, there aren't a LOT of trees but enough to give some holes a bit of a challenge. I would not consider this a wooded course!) Holes 8 and 9 have water hazards which might cost you a disk of you don't take the wind coming off the water into account. The course if very flat (as everthing around here is) so there is virtually no elevation changes. Some have complained that this is boring but anyone (including "tagalongs") that might not be in the best shape should still have no problems walking the course and still have a good time. On some holes, there's just enough underbrush along the edges to punish you for getting especially sloppy but not so much that you have to spend half the game in the thorns if your throw is only a little off. There are 2 tees and 2 baskets for every hole giving some variety though I must admit that the long tees are very challenging (almost tedios for someone of my limited skill level at least) with some having obstacles nearly in front of the tees. Though most fairways are open, screening / obstacle trees have ben planted and have grown nicely over the last couple of years. (I now have to go around trees that I once could have simply thrown over!) Overall, the best course I've played and worth the 45 minute drive to get there.

Pros: Easy to navigate the course. Two tees and two baskets per hole to play 4 course possibility. Has some distance holes. The signature hole is nice.
Cons: All holes are pretty much open. Some of the short baskets are in the way of the long baskets. Felt like the same shots on the holes. Not a big variety of shots. Very flat.

Great place for some golf
Pros: Red and white tee pads for all holes, as well as red and yellow baskets for each hole. This course is on a wonderful park for the whole family and very well taken care of.
Cons: Some of the fairways come a bit too close to people that are picnicking or grilling.
Other Thoughts: This was a great place to play and it is well worth the trip.

Pros: well maintained course.
pads are all concrete.
challenging holes on 8 and 9
Cons: the only con i can come up with is that it is overly easy to lose discs on holes 8 and 9 as they go out on a peninsula

cool course but a drive
Pros: clean course and a beautiful view of the bay. two pins per hole and most holes have 2 pads. Lots of facilities and park for the kids.
Cons: The only thing that i have a problem with is that it is about a 45 minute drive to almost another state for me.

Pros: This course is very clean and well kept. There are multiple concrete tee pads and baskets on every hole, allowing for repeated play without becoming too mundane. There are plenty of park facilities including bathrooms, courts, playgrounds, etc, so you can take the kids and they can still have fun. This park is situated right on the water, and it makes for a gorgeous round of disc golf. Some of the holes have a decent bit of distance to them. There are some sweet ace lines if you're feeling frisky. There are plenty of benches and trashcans, and some entertaining mandos to spice it up. There are also signs at each tee pad showing the layout and distances.
Cons: While this course is beautiful, it's kind of boring. There are only a couple holes with any kind of challenge to them....the rest are pretty much just clear open holes with a cage at the end. Also, referring to half of the course as "wooded" is using the term very loosely. There are only about 5 holes that have trees that ACTUALLY get in the way. The course is out of the way and somewhat hard to find without a GPS.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course for beginner to intermediate level players, as the holes are mostly set up such that you can see the cages from the tee, and there aren't really a whole lot of places for discs to hide. It's also a very beautiful park...I will definitely be playing there again if only for that reason. While the rounds are enjoyable, they're just not very challenging. Playing long tees/baskets helps. Also, when you finish on 9, head towards the boat ramp and just keep walking...you'll find 10 next to the closest shelter past the park office. Other than that, it's all pretty easy to follow. Try and avoid sunset rounds...there are a couple holes where you'll be blinded trying to shoot in to the sun. There IS the sweet water hole, so floaters would be nice to have in the bag, and this is a great place to work on your wind game, as the breeze coming off the water can be super strong.

Pros: -It has a nice blend of wooded and open holes. -The park is kept clean.
-It has water hazards.
-White and red tees have signs marking distance to yellow and red baskets.
-2 practice baskets located in the center parking lot.
-Constant breeze off of the river with an occasional gust, adds a little extra difficulty.
Cons: -Holes are short.
-Long drive to get to the park.
-It has water hazards.
Other Thoughts: This course could easily fit 2 more holes somewhere, like Bayville fit in.
Could benefit from the addition of blue and gold tees.

Great Beginner's coure
Pros: Flat course. Almost no trees. This course is reminiscent of a golf course. Has 2 Baskets and 2 tee pads on each hole. White pads to yellow baskets is the short course and red pads to red baskets is the long course. Can play four courses. also fast play with three people shorts can be finished in 1hr 20 minutes. Some trees so pinging into woods or bad lies doesn't happen. 9 holes have benches. Hole 8 is the signature hole. It plays out to a peninsula surrounded by water right on the Currituck Sound. Haven't seen another hole like it yet.
Cons: No trees. Course is very easy. No shade in the summer and no protection in the wind. very far from anywhere. so bring friends.
Other Thoughts: Red to red is a long course that any bomber would love. The wind is fierce out here. In the winter 20 mph is not uncommon and 30- 40 mph is possible.
I have seen disc float on the wind 200 feet and the wrong direction. Will improve your wind game.

Worth the drive
Pros: Munden Point Disc Golf course sits on Back Bay in Southern Virginia Beach. The course plays clockwise on the perimeter of a rather large city park that offers a whole host of other attractions. Two concrete tee-pads to two baskets on every hole which offers lots of distance variety. Tee signs from every tee pad with clearly marked out distances to each basket. There are plenty of trashcans and benches throughout course with shelters available for tournaments. This course has the best practice area I have seen at a course with two specific practice baskets set in a 50 yard grid with trees and other obstacles to practice approaches as well as putting. No matter what tee/basket combination you play there is a fair balance for lefty's and righty's. Signature hole is number 8 that plays from 350-600ft onto a thin peninsula out into a beautiful bay with the basket placed in a tricky placement that sure is to cause many water OB's. Park is well kept and clean. Mando's come into play on a third of the holes here that provides safety and a more creative approach to those holes. Rarely crowded on the course.
Cons: Number 1 issue for me is the wind. The bay breeze will always be factor based on the location of this course (especially holes 7-10). There are 3 holes here where the trees that have been planted to eventually add more challenge still have years to go to make those holes merely anything more than just field golf. The bathrooms located at hole 1 are frequently closed requiring you to traverse the park to the other location near hole 9. Long walk from hole 9 to hole 10. This disc golf course is located 30 minutes from any major state or highway. Pro players would probably only appreciate this course from long tees to long baskets for any other combination most baskets can be reached with midranges. From the shorter tees this course can feel rhythmic and may not offer enough variety or uniqueness for some. I could see this park being very crowded in spring summer due to its ideal choice for non-disc golf events causing spectators to be in fairways.
Other Thoughts: I have played this course from all the combinations and each choice offers a different concentration of your game. Short tees to short baskets you will have to shape your midrange discs to get on the birdie train. Long tees to long baskets is I believe a great pro level course where you need to execute to stay under par. Several long 350ft tunnel anhyzer shots are required which are always a strain for any pro. I would recommend this course for pros and advanced for the long tees and everyone else from any other combination. It is a drive to reach this course but for this area of Southeastern Virginia well worth it. Even though the course is a couple years old it feels fairly brand new. It does need some trees to develop but as is still offers a good challenge or fun factor depending on the route you select.
