Has kiosk and course map posted

Has tee posts only indicating hole number

Has concrete tee pads for a few holes

Has multiple basket placements for most holes

More wooded than open fairways with doglegs and slight elevations - which will be challenging to the casual player

Quiet - had whole course to myself on a Saturday afternoon

Free parking
Some natural tee pads have roots protruding and are not flat - recommend teeing off on the grass/dirt around them

Newly poured concrete tee pads are on the small side (about 4x6) and some are already cracking

Lots of trees where some fairways can be quite unfair and deflect discs into other trees

Some holes require blind shots - recommend a spotter

Baskets are hard to locate on some holes - need flags or bright paint

Needs more next tee signs - recommend a course map for the first-timer

No variety in pars - par 54

Course design and flow could use improvement as there are long walks between 2&3, 4&5, 8&9, 13&14, and 17&18

Course was in bad shape on the day I visited - tall grass and undergrowth needed clearing on most holes
Other Thoughts:
This is a challenging, 18 hole university course in Milledgeville that I played on a hot, sunny Saturday afternoon. The course is easy to find once you locate the kiosk from the parking lot. I highly recommend taking a picture of the course map posted there if visiting for the first time. Although there were some next tee signs posted, I had to refer to the course map for many holes that did not have signs. Also, the course map provides hole distances since the tee posts at each hole don't provide those. I was surprised that about half of the holes had concrete tee pads - although they are a bit on the short side and some are already cracking. Some of the natural tee pads were rough enough to justify driving from a standstill position. Most of the wooded fairways didn't offer a clear line to the basket but instead gave me a feeling of poke and pray. Overall I was disappointed in the condition of this course as it has the potential to be a quality course with its design. Perhaps this course is better maintained outside of the summer months when school is in session? I wanted to give this course a better rating but this course was horrendous in contrast to playing nearby Depot Disc Golf earlier that day.

Pros: The holes themselves are mostly interesting and challenging. A few holes were some of the most interesting that I've played (12 and 13 were great).

Not crowded.

You really get into the woods.
Cons: Super easy to lose discs - we lost one and almost lost two more. Either be careful with your throws or have a plan for if/when you think you've lost a disc.

Need better signage between holes/showing where the basket is.

Other Thoughts: With some more money and time invested, this course could be a great one! If signage was better and some of the brush was cleaned out I would bump it as high as a 3.5. As is, it can be frustrating but is still a great, challenging play.

Pros: Lots of good holes with:
Elevation changes
Great scenery
Tight technical shots
Very enjoyable course overall.
Cons: Wet tee area on #4
A couple of the holes should be par 5's
Other Thoughts: Hole #16 is beautiful. Throw across the valley to the next hilltop.

Pros: A challenging course for all. Myrtle is a very fair course that for most in an above par course. Some people get a little frustrated at courses like these but I like them, really makes you refine some of your game to get better better scores.
Cons: -Hard course for beginners
-Hole 3 & 4 get a little swampy after a hard rain
- 18 can be a bit of a disc eater if you don't have good control over your throws
Other Thoughts: A great course for what it is. The course designer is still very involved and is out there every month trying to make improvements/changes. At the rate this course has improved over the 5 years I've been playing it I think it could be well on it's way to being one of the better courses in middle Georgia albeit there's not much competition.

NOTE: As of this review the Hole 3 tee-box was moved to Hole 2 tee-box until some of the trees near the Hole 3 tee-box can be trimmed up some. Still a decent hole, a little easier of a throw for most.

Pros: This course has the technicality of a high skill level course. Combined with the recent placement of new pins on all but hole 1, 2, and 18 makes this course a sweet destination. Free and open to the public only maximizes the reasons to check it out. Trails clearly guide you through your round. Each hole now has a sponsor meaning cement teepads and nice teesigns/direction signs to come.
Cons: The teepads are all natural meaning not all of them are flat and roots and mud can be in the way. I always play hole 4 from the front of the mud because the true "teepad" will never be dry haha. The direction signs are small and forest green meaning they blend in and there has not been a recent course map update in years. Hopefully one will come soon and the maps will be available on the new board with the Myrtle Ridge graphic! FRESH! Honestly those are my only complaints besides the endless need to clean the fairways now and then.
Other Thoughts: This course is beautiful and continues to impress me each year. I lived in milledgeville and went to GCSU so I've played this course well over 100 times. I knows it's flaws and it's treasures, and I have a little bias that only a home course can bring. That being said if you leave near the area or are passing through and want some amazing discgolf I HIGHLY recommend heading to this course. New renovations should help with the cons to make this course PRO level and highly sought after. Itll blow you away.

Pros: Fantastic design and challenging.
Free to play.
Great variety of holes as far as elevation change and turns.
Cons: There are no concrete teepads, only natural dirt/grass.
#4 becomes a flood plain after rain, which in addition to the lack of concrete teepads is annoying, but the course designer says to drive from beyond the "swamp."
There is not much of a fairway on #18, only a footpath with tall trees and brush on either side.
Course still needs some cleanup work.
There are briars all over the course so watch out!
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great course, it just needs some financial backing to add teepads and to clean it up a bit. They made great use of the land and it is well designed. It is mostly wooded, with a couple of open holes right off the bat(#1, #2, and partially #3). I have seen great progress since this course opened a few years back, it now has permanent baskets and has been cleaned up a great deal. All holes are par 3's, but that makes for a challenge on several of them. Hopefully they add concrete teepads before too long. Once that happens and with some attention this will be a favorite course to play.

Pros: Great mix of long/short, left/right, up/down.
Fairly easy to follow. Rough has been thinned out in the last year and natural foot traffic has helped as well. The guys have done a lot of work and it is showing! Trees are a part of playing wooded courses, Fairways are shaping up.
Cons: Tees are a problem on some holes. Specifically 4, 6, 8, 9, 11, 13, 16. Concrete would help, and that is probably the next step. Random piles of tree limbs and trimmings need to be moved. Stray limbs here and there could be cut back as well.
Other Thoughts: Definitely a lot of improvements could be made to make the course more appealing, but after playing at least once a week for almost two years, the course never gets boring and continues to evolve. Definitely a favorite.

Pros: Baskets on each hole is a huge plus. Tee Boxes are easy to find.
Cons: To many trees-have had my discs hit limbs that were extended well into the fairway many times. To much brush & debree(random briar patches & fallen limbs on course). Could improve the teeboxes, some are to small, some have to many roots, and some are just not flat at all. Needs to have wider fairways-to much looking for a hidden disc thats no further than 2 feet off the fairway because of brush & debree. Maybe get some kind of sign to point out where exactly the course is located, I have had alot of people get confused in finding the course.
Other Thoughts: This course is awesome if you have a dog; I take my dog with me every time and she loves the exercise as well as being off her leash and able to run around. Watch out for snakes, I've seen a few on this course. Bring some water for sure, you could be out there a while hunting if you're not careful. Keep an eye on your disc and where it goes/lands! I've noticed today that some of the baskets have been moved to more appropriate positions and a few bushes/trees have been re-moved as to help make fairways a little clearer and putting greens had brush/bushes taken out to make the green more open and visible.

Pros: This course has enough distance and variety to be a very fun and challenging course. Elements of elevation, shot shaping, and length are mixed throughout. A few very nice holes. There is also a short nine if you don't want to play 18.
Cons: Natural tees are marked with posts, but no signage or next tee indicators. Fairways are in need of some sculpting and definition. Flow of the course is not always easy to follow.
Other Thoughts: A bit of concrete and a couple of work days could raise the rating of this course in a hurry. As an explorer, I'm glad to have stopped here to play. As a destination, there is still quite a lot to be desired.
