Pros: Laid out by a skilled course designer, good mix of open and wooded holes, in a beautiful natural area. New teepads being added! Huge ones using felled trees for borders, gravel bed for draining, and then a rubber matt overlaid with artificial turf. Better than concrete!
Cons: 6/16 holes are still works in progress. The standard 10 hole course is a great 30-45 min play through after work. Ive lost SO MANY discs here because I am not very good. In the height of summer a bad throw can really shoot off into the woods. Things are not well marked. If you have UDisc and a smart phone you will be fine, multiple layouts have GPS maps etc. Some uneven teepads.
Other Thoughts: I LOVE this course. Its close to me house, dog friendly, has a big hill to throw off of for a hole, beautiful woods. The core group of volunteers who are out here every week mowing, clearing brush, you are the real MVP's. Great mix of shots. Some of the wooded holes, when completed, could go toe to toe with Maple Hill and other championship level course. Shot placement on par 5's, forehand and backhands shots, straight tunnels, and even a couple of throw huge spike anhyzers 400 ft. open tosses.

My contribution for next year is going to be better path and next hole markers.

Pros: more disc golf in the greater Discithaca region, fun 9 holer with 2 pads per, acouple of lefts, acouple a rights, acouple straights, well worth a stop, if your in the area
Cons: not many here, can be wet, grass can get tall but is in a out of the way "naturalist" park, so dont expect a manicured course
Other Thoughts: Tieing Dotson with Belle Sherman and Palmer Woods, you or a group of chuckers can have a fun little run of 9 holers
