Pros: Course was very challenging with good elevation changes
private so not overrun
layout is fun with many types of shots needed to score well
Throwing over railroad tracks was a pleasant surprise
challenging but fair
Cons: No markers (playing with johnny is a huge plus)
a storm made it wet and hard to walk on some of the wv hills
Other Thoughts: The course is at his house so you have to contact him before. I didn't know it was private and was only able to play the course because I got stuck in a ditch near his driveway(he must have felt bad for me because I was passing through on my way to Michigan). Johnny was nice and tried to help me out which was awesome. The course was well laid out with some very tight shots and good use of the hills. I recommend this course but you will need a guide to navigate.

Pros: -Built by former world champ Johnny Sias.
-Extremely challenging and technical.
-Good hole length. A few 200's, many 300's and 400's+.
-Hilly terrain (WV mountains).
-Teepads are dirt, but decent length and mostly flat.
-Johnny will most likely play with you to show you the course.
Cons: -Poor signage (not an issue if Johnny is playing).
-Definitely NOT a beginner friendly course. Super heavily wooded.
Other Thoughts: If your game is decent, you should really call Johnny and go play this place. Even if it's just to get to play a round with a former world champion. He's a super nice guy and fun to talk with (plus he's really good at disc golf). The course is very heavily wooded with many insanely tight fairways. Other courses have holes with lots of trees, but not many have a 600 ft hole in the shape of a question mark with two sets of mandos that's a par 6 with lots of trees. This place will make you, break you, or a little bit of both. So definitely check it out, but ONLY if your game is decent. You don't need to throw 500 ft, but you do need to be accurate.
