Pros: - Once you find Tee 1 this course is very easy to navigate.
- Very well kept after, the grass is mowed, leaves (where it matters) are raked up.
- Covers a lot of ground, Got some good long shots on this course.
- Not much opportunity to lose a disc on this course
Cons: - Bathrooms and Drinking fountain, I could not find it, I didn't adventure through the whole park looking but they should be easy to find if they are there.
Other Thoughts: - My favorite course out of Rocky Mounts 4 courses hands down.
HOLE # 1 is located On Dawson Street about 100 yds up on the right. HOLE # 18 basket is right across the street from that.

A few changes
Pros: Great parking. The #9 island hole and a mix of long-ish and short holes. It's never crowded so the odds of you waiting on another group is rare. And if it's crowded you can drive less than 2 miles to Englewood or Farmington.
Course is well kept and the city does a great job of cutting the grass and trimming weeds around the holes.
Cons: Tees are not marked correctly. So if you are not familiar it's impossible to know where the basket is---since it doesn't exist. And it's a bit worse now since they are moving things around for the PDGA tournament this May (2011).
Other Thoughts: They moved #2's basket back around that small tree again.
They removed the basket and poured a blue t-box on #4. So you shoot at #5's basket and by-pass #5 all together. They also moved #14 to the other block. So after #13 you walk across the street past that house and tee off in the street. You have to throw straight on the same side of the street then throw across the street to land inside the OB box they put up. If you have a strong arm you could throw in the box from the T...problem is there are 2 pine trees you have to shoot through at an angle.
They also poured a new blue T-box on 18 so no more easy birdies.

Pros: A relatively open course that uses the existing trees to shape lines instead of carving a lane out of an existing forest. A good mix of lengths and the "three" tees (once finished) will offer a great round for all level players. Great looking signs that show hole layout and distance.
Cons: My main cons were with my playing...banging putts off the cage that should have been gimmes. Drives - can't go long off many of the existing tee pads...plenty of short to medium length holes. Freaking cold and windy!!!
Other Thoughts: My favorite hole of the course is no doubt the Island Hole (#9). The first time I played I actually landed safely and had to two putt for the par. Yesterday I over threw the basket by about 20-25 feet. Bogeyed with my drop, but it is still an awesome use of the existing infrastructure. This course will improve once all teepads have been installed. The course is coming along very nicely...I can remember when the land was full of houses, prior to Hurricane Floyd.

Pros: The best thing I like about this course is it is not that busy around. It is located in a park, but the actual park is located away from the play area. You can shoot a pretty low round if you are ready, but it can bite you if you are not paying attention. The signage is clear and accurate. A decent mix of short and long holes as well as different shot selections. The city does a good job on mowing and the upkeep is good. The island hole, did I say the island hole. Basically the basket sits in the middle of the street on top of a small grassy triangle. Can be very difficult to stay on the island even if you land on it. Probably my favorite hole on the course. This course now has concrete tee boxes.
Cons: The first time I played it I actually skipped over two holes by mistake. Now that I have played it, I know where to go. Not enough long drive holes. Every hole there I usually throw with a mid-range disc. The longest is 367 ft but it doesn't seem even that long. The trash can be bothersome, probably more trash cans needed. You will need to cross a few streets but that is not really an issue because there isn't that much traffic back in the area of the course.
Other Thoughts: A practice basket would be nice, there is even a nice big field to throw on if you need to warm-up before a round.

A perfect course, IMHO.
Pros: -beautiful, well-maintained course
-not too wooded, not too open
-great mix of long and short holes
-mix of shot types required
-though it's in a flooded-out neighborhood, rain doesn't seem to gather like you would think
-streets are pretty calm, don't have to worry much about cars passing through
Cons: -honestly, the only "con" i would have listed about this course was that they had gravel teeboxes, but they have been changed to concrete as of a few weeks ago
Other Thoughts: -i would say this is one of the best courses in the area, and possibly eastern North Carolina.

Its getting there
Pros: New concrete tee pads installed 6/12/2010. Directional and mando signs now installed.The concrete teepads with the addition of the island hole and long tees show this courses continued improvement.What is a very beginner friendly course from the ams turns into a totally diff. course from the longs. The course is beautiful and well maintained.
Cons: Need to get the long pads in and install a couple bridges.Bridges should be done shortly.

Pros: -Great use of land and obstacles
-Friendly locals that were picking up trash and removing fallen limbs
-Different tee options
-The old tee signs were torn off but new ones were stapled on
-Concrete tee pads arent allowed but the gravel pads are excellently maintained
-The last hole brings you right back to your car
-Not crowded at all
Cons: -can get lost and confused, a map or arrows would be helpful
- i was not a fan of the hole where you throw onto a grass island in the middle of the street, not so much for cars (the speed limit is 25 mph) and there isnt much traffic... i was worried I'd miss the grass and scuff up my disc
Other Thoughts: Overall, the course was decent. You need to cross streets a few times but there isn't much traffic and the speed limit is low (25mph). It seems like the locals work very hard to keep it nice. If the man I saw picking up trash wasn't doing it then I imagine it could build up. It seems like the tee signs where torn off by vandals and a local stapled up the tee info. I have great respect for those who work so hard against the few who ruin. Keep up the good work, you know who you are!

Pros: Absolutely beautiful course. A nice challenge for a couple of beginner players (my 12yo son and I). Fairly easy to navigate, just look for the closest tee pad and you're pretty much set.
Cons: Had trouble finding the alternate tees. A few were marked with stakes and most of those had been knocked down except for holes 11 - 17. Desperately need tee signs and next hole signs would be helpful after holes 2, 6 and 12.
Other Thoughts: We got a bit frustrated trying to find the short tees but overall I really liked this course. I will definitely play it again the next time I am in Rocky Mount.
