Could use polishing.
Pros: The ~5 holes that have water in play are great. Good variety of shots through the trees. Nice to have multiple tees, although I've only played the whites.
Cons: Signage was pretty bad. It looks like they're moving some around because they were using different number signs at different holes. Tee pads were pretty bad, but we were playing in the rain.
Other Thoughts: Nice use of the space, but it could use some polishing. The parking lot seems to be a common spot for high school kids to come get high too, as we saw two groups doing so as we rolled up, which did not make us feel good about leaving our car full of stuff there.

Pros: - Mixing things up with the water.
- Mix of wide open, woods, over water and around water shots.
- Park for the kids if they tag along
Cons: - Sign's were not there for every hole, the wooden stands were there, but it seems they have been defaced.
- Rubber tee-pads is a very bad idea, I played off to the side of them as the ground was wet.
Other Thoughts: My least favorite course out of Rocky mounts 4 courses.

Pros: Great signs made it easy to navigate the course. The water holes make a nice risk/ reward. Choose your shot carefully, my friend did not and he went swimming. Was not crowded the day we were there. The park is easy to find from the highway. Park was very clean. The multiple tees were nice for any level player to join in.
Cons: The course can be muddy so just be prepared for that. Many holes are rather short. I used my putter most of the day. There was a soccer tournament going on and they used a grassy area for parking on the fairway. (I hope that isn't common.)
Other Thoughts: This was a fun course. The shorter holes were in the wooded areas which gave them more challenge. If your in the area this is definetely worth playing, I had a great time.

New Holes = Awesome

Pros: First 9 holes are all very aceable - short, but with distinct fairways. The back 9 are a little longer and more open, with quite a few water holes that are fun to play.
An additional "Complex Loop" was added recently so that three new holes can be played between holes 13 and 14, making this a 21 hole course in total. To get to the additional loop, walk down the corridor between the two fields right before the hole 13 basket. After you play these three, you'll walk back along Church Street to the hole 14 tee (it's a bit of a hike).
This course originally had rubber tees, but these have been switched to either concrete or asphalt. Nice improvement.
Overall, I really enjoy playing this course. It's not difficult, but offers a nice variety for a quick game.
Cons: Not every sign is 100% accurate since they have redesigned the course.
Holes 11-14 play very close to the baseball and soccer fields, and the gates to these are normally locked, so if you throw a disc over, it's a pain climbing the high fences. These holes are also a little bland, even with the water hazard thrown in. For me, these holes tend to drag a little.
This is a minor drawback, but as stated above, the hike from Hole C on the extra loop back to Hole 14 is quite a ways.
Other Thoughts: Love the additional loop (Holes A, B and C.) While it doesn't offer the challenge that Farmington does (nearby), I really love this course. Probably my favorite in Rocky Mount.

Pros: Not to hard. This course allows begginers to have a decent score. Multiple tee pads. Great pin placement.
Cons: Can get wet in some areas. This course is located in a run off area to a few softball and baseball fields. Tee pads are rubber. Easy to slip and twist an ankle.
Other Thoughts: I love this course. 8 & 9 will test you because they are over a pond. The holes are fairly easy. Watch out for poison ivy.

Pros: Holes #8 & #9 are the best holes on the course, both cross portions of the lake and can be challenging for any body. Most of the wooded holes have well defined fairways. Fairly easy to navigate through, I made 18 holes in about 90 minutes, and that's with never playing it before. They made great use of the land they had, weaving it in and out of a chunk of trees and following along a lake's edge.
Cons: The course holds water, granted we've had several inches of rain in the past few weeks, but most all of the holes had some standing water on it. Hole 17 in particular was impossible to get down the fairway without my disc getting wet as well as my feet. The tee pads need to be concrete, or something other than that crappy plastic, i slipped on 2 drives and ended up just teeing to the side of the plastic for safety's sake...i didn't really like the open holes of 12-14...they were long, flat and boring, it probably didn't help that I was plaing in 40 mph winds and it was a headwind on 2 of those holes.
Other Thoughts: this is a newer course, and is still a work in progress...when completed this will be a top notch course. I hear rumors of a championship caliber course that will add 2000 feet to the total distance. to do this though they're gonna need to add tee pads, bridges, trash cans. benches and signs.

Pros: Easy course from the short tees. Very tough course from the longs. This course has it all...in the woods, the wide open, and over 2 ponds!!! Makes you use just about every shot possible!
Cons: Not really feeling the black carpet tee box things. Holds water really bad during those rainy days.
