Pros: The course plays on a small piece of private property. There are a few holes that incorporate some minor elevation changes, with a couple downhill shots and a couple that play uphill. The first few holes bring some trees into play, with a little bit of brushy rough that could punish errant shots. There is a course map inside the shop that helps with navigation.
Cons: When I played, 4 baskets were missing, and it seems like at least some of them have been missing for a long time. The baskets that were left were pretty beat up, most were bent and leaning. The tees are just rough dirt spots marked out with some bricks, and aren't marked in any way. The course is crammed into a small area, so the holes are short and don't provide much challenge. Roads and picnic areas come into play on several holes and there could be some safety issues if these are in use.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will find the holes reasonable with some interesting lines. More experienced players won't find much of a test here, and there's not enough variety to keep things interesting for multiple rounds. The first couple holes are interesting enough to merit half a disc for this course, but the long term missing baskets and general feeling of disuse make this a course to avoid.
