Pros: I tried to think of one thing good and I can't. You might be able to get an ace?
Cons: Mostly everything. I played this course a couple months ago after leaving Earl Brewer park (go there if in the GR area). I asked one of the locals which is the best course in the area we could go to. He recommended Old Farm Park. First thing, this is the weirdest placement for a course because it is basically in a neighborhood where you'd never think there would be a disc golf course. It was pretty hard to find. Ok now the course. All of the holes are very short and and stupid. Most of the short holes are in the woods and have absolutely no line to the basket. I'm not talking about a direct saying there is no way to throw a hyzer, anhyzer, thumber, sidearm, skip shot, or anything. You are going to throw it into a tree and probably get a deuce. That is not fun for me. There are a couple holes that are open but are stupid as well. Helen Keller could of designed a better course than this.

The signs for the holes looks like a toddler drew them. Two of the final holes had so much goose poop on the fairway that I would have rather thrown it into the water. When I was there I was stuck behind about 5 groups of 8 people (I was pissed about this but even if I had the course to myself I would have hated this course). I can't remember how the teepads were but they probably sucked too. The parking lot is about the size of my driveway which made parking a hassle.
Other Thoughts: I wish my first review was not something so hateful but I had to let the discgolf world know that if you have ANY other option...take it. I have played some pretty bad courses in my day but this one takes the cake by far. The only way I would ever play this course again would be if someone threatened my life if I didn't play it. Even then I would think about it.
