Pros: - A good physical challenge since you're climbing a mountain while you play and doing lots of scaling of rocks and trees.
- Decent mixture of looks on most of the holes
- Heaving it down the hill at the end of the round was fun.
Cons: - Impossible not to get lost several times. Signage was spare, to say the least. Really, really needs more indicators of where to go next. It's a heavily wooded mountain with hiking trails all over, so I found myself often guessing at where the next tee was.
- Because there are several courses overlapping each other (Black/Blue/Green) but not consistently, it's always a guess as to if you're on the right course. I tried to play Black, which has uses the Blue/Green teepads sometimes and sometimes has its own, but there's no way to tell when. Also, you could be on Hole 8 Black, but the teepad says Hole 16 Green. Yes, this could work and other courses do it too, but there is so little consistency and so little signage, it really took away from the enjoyment of the round.
- I played in June, which should have been "summer course", but playing the Black tees sucked after about the 10th hole because all the upper slope fairways were covered with waist high tallgrass, making even clean, simple drives into the center of the fairway a game of "find the disc". It was more of a slog through the high grass and mud than a disc golf round.
-Really wasn't worth the drive for me (3 hours).
Other Thoughts: - This may have once been a cool course when first created, but it really doesn't seem cared for and eventually that feeling made me just want to enjoy the strenuous hike and skip the constant disc-hunting that I had to do.
