Pros: This course has a couple tree tunnel shots, some wide-open holes and uses a nice small piece of land to make the course somewhat interesting. This place has restrooms just up the hill from course. Navigating the holes once you find #2 basket is a no brainer. Basically just stay out of the woods for the first 2 holes and you can find your way the rest of the way.
Cons: #1 tee is played from the #9 basket. Then you play basket to basket from there on out. There are no tee signs or tee pads. The homemade baskets are OK, but after throwing some warm up putts, I notice they can produce some bounce outs, as the chains are close to the edge of the plastic basket. (see course photos) It's best to putt very firm to make sure the disc has a good chance of dropping in. There were no trashcans in the course area.
Other Thoughts: The Fun Factor was not really there for me on this one. There were 2 holes that I enjoyed throwing on, but the thrill of wanting to throw even more tee shots was not there. There were a few good holes due to the design and use of the land. I think they would have gotten further, if they had put the money they should have toward it the first time. This is a multi-use camping and park, so it is not that bad for a start up.
