Pros: It's a course where you wouldn't think there would be one. It challenges you to make precision shots on 90% of the holes which is good for those with a soft touch and bad for those who like to let her rip with all they have. I like that there are a lot of tree's lined up directly in your path and that the mandatories make it near impossible to cut through the ruff but the short distances leave you in danger of overthrowing the basket if you do happen to get through. This, of course, is a part of the fun. Most of it is in the forest but there are a few holes that cross into open terrain designed to let you air it out. The holes are well marked and you're unlikely to lose your frisbee.
Cons: $8 fee. Heavily used course means your either waiting or passing through a lot. Errant throws easily wind up on other fairways since the holes are packed in so tight and there are walking paths right next to the baskets. The same reason you respect the tree obstacles leads you to hate them as well once you hit the point of wishing you could just chuck the disc out without the thunk that comes with the effort.
Other Thoughts: It's a great course to practice with a variety of discs and to test out various throws. The overhand throw came in handy more than once. Forehand and backhand throws were needed as well. It's a good course and you'll be happy you played it but it's not the best available in the area.
