Pros: First of all, I love the name.
Cool location down in the valley between Spring Valley and Princeton.
Very easy, and has recently been changed to a FREE course. This course would be a great for beginners, or to even take your kids or nieces and nephews.
Cons: -Pretty much an open field with baskets (DGA M-14) scattered about.
-The tees are impossible for a lefty to throw from.
-Hours limited (suppose to be 9-5 but they were not open at 1pm on a friday the first time I tried to play the course)
-Just too easy, not a course to even waste your time with.
Other Thoughts: Just went to play this course to waste time on my work lunch break. Which it did work perfect for that, but I was expecting a lot more from the secluded location in terms of cool holes.
I even went thinking I had to pay to play, but ended up finding out it was free. If I had to pay, I would have been very disappointed.
Do not waste your time at this course. It is, in my opinion, by far the worst course in the area. Sorry Echo Bluff, but I keep it real.

Pros: This is a very short beginner friendly course.

Most of the course plays in the open and on the edge of a heavily wooded area.

Once you find hole #1 it is very easy to navigate.

A round of 9 can be played in 15-20 minutes.

It has tee pads (wood chips), tee signs (homemade), and baskets (dga m-14 portables).
Cons: I expect more from a pay to play course. If this were a free course i'd probably give it a 1.5 rating. This is not worth paying 50 cents to play.

Hours are limited.

Tee signs are homemade and right next to the tee pad. They get in the way when throwing.

Baskets are DGA Portable M-14. Most of them are not level. They however caught an ace!

The tee to hole #1 is on the other side of the building.

Do not go out of your way to play this course!

Pros: The forest area out here is nice, which is what you'd expect considering you have to pay to even come here. That's about it...
Cons: You have to pay to play. It's not even that incredible. On average the hole length is 220 feet and it the shot selection doesn't vary too much. A lot of the baskets are the same shot type and there's only 9 holes. The tees are woodchips and the baskets aren't too impressive. The course has limited hours and only has one set of pins and tees. :/
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't waste my time or money going out here to play. There's not many disc golf courses out here and the ones that are are all only 9 holers. It's not worth it to come out here.
