Pros: The area where the course is layed out is mostly very scenic and well kept. Your first shot runs along the pond and get's you off to a nice start. There's a good mix of open shots for unabashed driving and punishing deep woods with 5 ft. wide fairways lined by thick, menacing honeysuckle vines and underbrush. The rolling hills of the back 9 are just fun to throw across and add a nice relief from the punishment of 4 through 9.
Cons: It is near impossible to find your way around in some places. From 3 (by the giant pile of wood chips) we would have never found 4 without help. Navigating from 4 through 9 was nothing more than lots of wasted time with trial and error and we never found the tee for 15 (but we did find someones runaway pet python/boa while looking). Many of the tee sign-posts were just a board in the ground with no sign and the 'natural' tees themselves are in bad shape. The worst part for us was holes 4-9. They are so short, narrow and overgrown with poison ivy and vines that it's practically impossible to not lose your discs unless you just throw precise, short tosses (or you are a pro.) The woods need to be cleaned up badly. There was also litter at almost every single tee because there are no trash cans anywhere (although that's still no excuse to you inconsiderate so and so's who decide it's an excuse to just drop it).
Other Thoughts: The map in the links on this course is pretty much wrong. Could be that things have changed since it was made. I hate being so down on so many courses, but this one would be a lot better if I had just skipped 4-9 and had been able to find the tees on some of the others. It might be a great course in the future.
