Pros: High quality baskets. Quiet, secluded area. Hardly any foot traffic during peak hours (Saturday early afternoon).
Cons: If this course has been "newly renovated," I'm not seeing the yield of those efforts. In many respects, this is probably the worst disc golf course I've ever played on.

Because it's in a low basin, there are gnats and mosquitos everywhere. Clusters of thorny plants are rampant---my legs looked like swiss cheese afterward, and I didn't even toss a disc in the rough.

Difficulty-wise, this course is sort of in no-man's land. It's not for beginners, because if you're even barely off in your accuracy, you'll either A) lose your disc in the extremely dense, poison oak/poison ivy/thorn-packed foliage that surrounds every hole, or B) injure yourself (and waste lots of time) searching for your disc. But it's not for advanced players, either, because the holes are very short, mostly very straight, and frankly, boring.

The grass clearly hadn't been mowed in weeks. There are several missing signs which makes it difficult to tell where to throw. Had to go on several pilgrimages to find the right tees/holes.

Overall, a miserable experience, and we couldn't wait to finish the ninth hole and leave.
Other Thoughts: Most of my complaints I think are a matter of poor maintenance. If someone were maintaining this course more regularly, and if we could somehow remove the hundreds of thorny and poisonous plants, I can see how this might be a pleasant little spot to work on your short game. Until then, I'll be disc golfing elsewhere.

Pros: The course has such potential. It is a pretty much open course with short distances for each hole ranging from just under 200 to 300 feet max, and you can see the basket from each tee, which is nice. The course is new, which means that the signs are in great shape as well as brand new baskets (the ones with the yellow band around top too). If you just want to play a quick course, this course might be for you...if you can overcome the cons...
Cons: While the holes are short and you can see the baskets from the tees, there are some formidable obstacles...namely, large bramble patches that are so thick that you will see exactly where the disc goes in them, and yet not go after it. Also, the entire course is overtop a drainage field, which means that if there is even a slight rain, the course turns into a wear some high water rubber boots. Also, the course is not kept up regularly, which means that the fairways at time can look just as bad as the rough. Also, all the other cons aside, the course is definitely not challenging for people who have been playing for any amount of time. Unless you call avoiding briar patches a challenge!
Other Thoughts: All in all, this course is not really worth playing, not worth the risk of losing a disc at. I spent my round here throwing my junk discs for the most part because I didn't want to risk losing a nice one. IT also limits your throw options because you are less likely to take a risk on a hard, long throw when you could easily lose your disc. Again, it has potential, but just not worth it in my opinion.
