Pros: -I played here when I first started and it's good for little kids because it's short and lightly wooded.
-Chances for an ace here and likely will happen for intermedites.
-I have a little sister who is 7, having said that, it's for elementary schoolers.
-Trashcans on campus.
Cons: -It's just plain BORING and if you can throw over 200' then go to Robert L Smith or Winget.
-Doors are locked so there is no restroom.
-#3's basket might still be broken and it's not very playable.
-Many fairways are very close to the buildings and if you could hit a window.
-I couldn't find some of the tees. They are not numbered.
-Hole 5 holds the honor in being the most boring hole I have played.
Other Thoughts: This course is good for beginners and boring for players who can throw over 200'. Any elementary school course is not an actual real course. It's for children and beginners. Again, you can come here if you want an "ace". Heelboycraig did.

Pros: Great exposure to disc golf for students.

The baskets are numbered and nice, except #3 was broken the most recent time I played. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.

Short easy throws on wide open holes mean you only have to carry one or two discs, with basically no chance of losing one. It's a good place to work on your short game.

It's easy to get to, being right off the interstate.

There are convenience stores and restaurants (Subway, Hardee's, and Hillbilly's BBQ) nearby.

It's short enough that you could play several rounds in an hour.

There are a couple of nice playground areas on the school grounds, fun for the whole family.
Cons: Short and easy wide open holes aren't the end all and be all of disc golf.

There are no tees. Literally, there are no indications of where to begin the hole. You basically play from basket to basket. This could be fun, you could make the holes as long as you would like, but it is so open, that wouldn't change the experience much.

There are also no benches or trash cans to be found on the course, but this is not a big deal on such a short course.

Restrooms aren't open during the hours the course is open.
Other Thoughts: I think it's great disc golf exposure to kids, which is for whom this course was designed. It's not worth a special trip to play, unless you're just trying to rack up a lot of courses played. It, however, is not bad if you're in the neighborhood needing a disc golf fix, or just want to squeeze in a few more holes on your way home before it gets dark.
