Possibly and Indiana Hot Soon in the Future
Pros: -24 holes, with am and pro pads
-designed by indy pro Jerry Suiter (he also designed McCulloh Park in Muncie)
-baskets by Allen Pier of Pieradise DGC in Peru, IN
-open holes in the beginning and towards the end
-the rest are woods hole madness
-bring your A game with drives, mids, and putts
-Hole 6: bomb it from the top of the hill and watch it sail, great hole
-can use your whole bag on the round, a good mix will help
Cons: -some thick underbrush
-as of now tees are a mixture of sand and gravel mixture, but I would have to guess that when a club gets in on the action these MAY change, but due to the overall terrain is would be insanely difficult at best
Other Thoughts: As stated in the previous review, this course is a kid's Eagle Scout project. SIMPLY AMAZING. I played a round the week before the course actually opened, we ran into the parents of said Eagle Scout and not only were they very excited to hear our thoughts, they seemed to be into whole vibe of disc golf as well. Its purely my opinion, but I feel that over time this course will turn into being one the great ones in the state. All the potential is there, just needs a club over it to help maintain some trimming, cutting, and a way to make consistent teepads. Wear your trail shoes as there are hills, ravines, stairs, hills, and mud. Its hard to really describe the level of fun, difficulty, and potential this course has to offer. Go play, see for yourself.
Played an additional two rounds at the course today, most of the teeboxes are about ready to be filled with their gravel mix. Great signs and arrows pointing you to the next hole. This course continues to impress.....
Also for a TomTom GPS use the address 6815 W 200 instead of the listed address, this one takes you right to the gate.

Congratulations on your eagle badge
Pros: Great spiderweb 3 targets with yellow basket and number plate, easy to see in woods. Alt. Pin & tees. Great tee and directional signs.bathrooms,office, pepsi machine-with water- by #1 tee. Practice basket. As of now free to play,I would pay/donate $5 each person all day,even per round. Working on setting up a lost and found system. Loaner discs at office. The course has everything, nice perk having 24 holes. The sled hill (#6) signature hole, could have two if #24 Alt. Pin would be on island. Starts out open,short-good for warming up. Uses open,woods,over valleys, ridge to ridge-Jerry Suiters,the course designer hole #19. Uphill,downhill,side of hills.
Cons: Only Three; First,Gravel tees they are in very good condition but need a little tlc. Second,needs more trash cans. The last is an event was happening in the community? Building, #3 fairway used as a parking area. With a new course things like that happen.
Other Thoughts: •••UPDATE•••played 5/23/10,Added half a disc to my rating for all benches (much needed) installed! Only thing missing are trash cans. Gravel tees need raking. Really like that on #6 (sled hill) they removed some mature growth giving a "window" shot possibility into the creek. With the recent rains it was FULL and flowing fast.....nice little mind play. Three new tees? #6 third tee 50ft. To the left of current pro tee.#7 pro tee may have 2nd route,over marsh, ace run! #24 third tee behind pond,drive over pond,with the island. using a wheel this course measures 2.3 miles, from #1 pro tee to #24 pole hole. Wear your hiking boots!vision of Nathan Pillion, for his eagle scout badge. His persistence and patience and hard work paid off HUGE for anyone that plays this course. So nice you will play it twice! I had the opportunity to meet Nathan on my first visit. he informed me that all of the wood and screws,from Frankfort's Kramer's do-it center,they purchased at cost! The tee signs,from Perkins Sign Co. Also at cost! If you live in the area support the local businesses, if you need tee signs for a new course or upgrade.
