Pros: Located on a decent ball golf course, this course has multiple tees on about half the holes. The tees are dirt, but identified with easy to see twin posts, white for short and blue for the long tees. Strategically placed next tee signs make navigation, along with the course map, not difficult at all.
Mostly played in the open, several baskets are tucked in, behind or near trees, with a couple of small ponds and a little creek coming into play. It is a very long course, with length being the primary area of difficulty.
Since it's on a ball golf course, it is well maintained, with short grass and very clean. There is a snack bar and bathrooms on site. Rental discs and course map are available and you can also play the course with a golf cart. Neither the ball or disc golf course was very crowded, you'll probably have the course to yourself.
Cons: Obviously, you have to share the course with ball golfers, and they take priority. If crowded, this could slow you down. Also, the two courses overlap, so you have to be aware of potential golf balls flying in the air, or being on a ball golf fairway, while they are waiting to play.
Holes 1, 2 and 18 are near the ball golf driving range, so be very cautious if someone is hitting balls.
Holes 15 and 16 fairways are parallel to each other, and hole 15 has a mando that forces you to basically land in 16 fairway.
Other Thoughts: It's been over a year since the last review, and this course has addressed a lot of those previous issues and has come a long way, and is much improved.
The course proprietor is very friendly and helpful. Before my round, he went in depth with me with the course map of all the holes, how they played and landmarks to look for to help in navigation.
I'm hesitant to say this is a must play since it isn't really located in a convenient or disc golf popular area, so it's an effort to get too. If you are going from Augusta to Charleston, you will basically pass right through it, and it's a perfect excuse to take a break from your travels to play it.

Pros: UPDATE: As DWill Stated, this review was done in 2010. It sounds as if they made the proper adjustments. A map is now available under the Links/Files tab Next time I'm in the area, I will stop in and play it. I'm looking forward to a better experience! :) I'll boost it to a 2.5, but I'll need to play it again before I do an overhaul change to my review. So please take my review with a grain of salt! Apparently changes have been made since my review. :)
-It's on a golf course
-Pins are in a good location
-Maps are now available on this website, or in the proshop.
-Good open distance drives
-Tee Markers (please read the whole review)
-Signs pointing you to the next tee on most holes
-18 holes, on this 9 hole ball golf course
Cons: -A good number of the tee markers had been pulled up and tossed off to the side.
-Baskets should be numbered, this might alleviate some of the confusion.
* This might be hard to explain, but It could've been my basket, or a basket for the adjacent fairway. There was no way of knowing. Hence, a map with the pin locations would be helpful!
-No one was in the proshop the day I played here, the greenskeeper saw me and unlocked the door. I was about to leave.
-If there are no markers, you may as well throw from anywhere, because you will not find a specific tee box.
Other Thoughts: When I first read the previous review, I took the "skip this course" part with a grain of salt. In this case He would be correct. Save your 6$ and go play in Orangeburg or Barnwell. Until they fix the issues with this course, you will only be frustrated. ...unless you know the course. I actually walked off the course after I couldn't figure out where the 11 tee was. I got tired of wasting time looking for tees and figuring out which baskets went to which hole. Only to find the markers pulled up, and tossed off to the side of the course. The map was really no help, because it only shows the Ball Golf course. For instance... The first three holes play along the 1st Ball Golf hole. Holes 4 and 5 play along the second. 6,7,8, and 9 zig zag across hole 3. ...and so on. There is no map illustrating this layout.
Here is a message to the course owners, hopefully you will read this:
These issues are not a permanent dysfunction. These could be easily remedied and making these changes would make this a playable course.
1. Put the tee markers back in the appropriate positions, and lets find a way to keep them there.
2. Make a map, specifically for Disc Golfers. Take the Golf course map, and put the pin positions and the Tee locations on the map. Nothing fancy, you could even photocopy the map. We are not as picky as ball golfers! We just want to know where we are going.
3. Keep my 6$, go to the hardware store, buy a pack of black number stickers, and put the correct numbers on the proper basket. Trust me, this does help.
4. This is just an "extra mile" thought. When you make that map, have someone get the measurements to the basket. ...in feet, not yards.
Crestwood is in a location where Disc Golf is starting to become popular, Showing this course a little TLC could go a long way in bringing in Disc Golfers. I realize that the budget might not be that big, but these changes are not very costly. The pins were fine and in good locations. The frustration set in, because I didn't know where I was going, I didn't know where to tee off, and wasn't really sure where the basket was. If you took the proper measures, Denmark would have a decent place to play, and you might make some money.
If this course makes these changes and adjustments, I would be more than happy to go out, play it again, and change my review. If everything was in place, and I knew where I was going, I might give it 2.5 or 3.

Pros: Golf course, so you can rent a cart and play a round w/ cart for 11$. Long, mostly open to allow for practicing with the hot new driver of the day.
Clean, no rough, not much chance of lost disc.
Design is basic but not bad, variety of shots but most so long/open that you can do whatever you want.
One super short ace-run!
Cons: Discatcher LITE baskets.
Dirt, unmarked (mostly) tees. (though map is given you still cant be sure you played from the right spot).
The golf course it's on is crap, it'd be worse to play that than the disc golf side. Fire ants, patchy grass.
Gets boring, windy.
Other Thoughts: Skip it if you think it's worth the long haul to go check out- it's really no better than a typical long open city park course, and it's not free.
