Pros: -well maintained; nice benches and trash cans on most holes.
-decent signs. a post with a picture of the hole and the distance
-good tee pads (though short)
-navigation is pretty easy.
-I could see this course being very good for either beginners or a more advanced player who wants to work on his/her mid and putter throws.
-something about the atmosphere of the place was good. I had a lot of fun at this course for some reason.
Cons: -the biggest con was that it gets repetitive. 17 short holes(<300') through some trees, 1 medium length(341') hole with slightly less trees.
-tee pads seemed short.
-the water hazard was nasty and smelled bad.
-no elevation change at all.
Other Thoughts: not a destination course, but fun to play if you're in the area.

near the course there is a store called "disc golf zone." they had a good selection of innova and discraft discs at reasonable prices.

Pros: - Mostly solid hole design, has variety
- Short is a pro here it's a course designed for newer players or to polish skills
- "Up North" woodsy feel
Cons: - Well marked, well maintained
- Not much rough
- Near the end a few holes have no realistic flight path they get poke and pray towards the basket at the end
Other Thoughts: worth playing if nearby but not a destination course. beats the Vines nearby

Pros: The course is set in a park off the main road, and they did a good job with the space they had to work with. There are maps located around the course and it would be almost impossible to get lost. Mostly tech in the woods, but not as dense as other courses I've played. Hole #17 has a cool approach over a creek to the tee. Some of the back 9 get tough with severe hyzers/anhyzers, but all in fun.
Cons: The holes can seem to get a little repetitive in the middle of the course. If you run off the fairway on some of the 'tree line' holes, just lay up back on; you're not making par. And some of the holes seemingly lack any fairway at all, with the pin back some 200-300 ft behind a bunch of scattered trees.

My buddy constantly complains about the short tee pads 'messing up his footwork'.
Other Thoughts: I can understand how some would say this course is easy, but it's not really much different than Titta. Park or the Banks. I actually need to get back out to this course, because it really helps focus your extreme hyzer/anhyzer shots.

There's a grocery store down the road that sells discs and beer and there's a bar right across the street, which is always a plus.

Pros: You don't have to wait through a lot of other groups on this course.The rough is woody enough to be a challenge,yet you won't easily loose a disk.Benches are vary nice.
Cons: Some high level players might say this course is a bit short,or even a little easy...
Other Thoughts: I like #15&18,they both have a somewhat "extreme" dog leg thing going on....Over all a clean,fairly varied course with a "fun"level of challenge.
