Pros: *As good as it gets for this piece of land.
*The PERFECT course for this size town/property.
*A good mix of short/long, lefty/righty holes.
*Perfect course to start out new players on with some of the shorter, reachable holes, yet, challenging enough with some of the longer tighter holes for more experienced players.
*The creek comes into play a lot more than it shows on the hole info here...I'd say holes 3, 5, 6 and 7. On hole 3 you are throwing over the creek about 30 feet in front of you so, it does not really even come into play there.

This course uses the new Disc Nation "Liberty" baskets, this was the first time I'd played on them. They catch very well

Kudos to course designer George Blessing for his ingenious idea of lighting the baskets for night play with $10 worth of solar sidewalk lights!!!
+ 1 egg just for this ingenuity...

Just Installed...rubber horse stall mats at each tee. They seem to give pretty good grip, even when a little damp. They are on the small side, about 3'X3' and messed with my run up. I just couldn't get over seeing the edge of that mat and thinking about tripping on it...

Definitely worth the stop...
Cons: Only 9 holes...
Give me 9 more holes like this with concrete Tee Pads and I'll give it a 4+ rating!!!!!
Other Thoughts: Kudos to George Blessing for pursuing his passion for Disc Golf and getting this course installed.

A BIG THANKS :-) to TCI Mfg. in Walnut for putting up all of the $$$ needed for this course, -WoW- what a stand-up company, support them if you can!!!

Here's an article about George and the course from a local newspaper...
