 Not really a course

Pros: 1) 5 more baskets to be used and show people what the game is all about.
2) Discatchers again are visible baskets and well built.
3) Played one way will work on one type of throw and then turn around and go the other way and you can work on the opposite throw. I suppose you could also throw across the tall grass to make it more interesting, but that would make for some long walks.
4) Minor elevation on a couple of the baskets. The rollaway won't be extreme but it might help on uphill and downhill putting technique.
Cons: 1) Long distance holes . . .not so beginner friendly.
2) Some baskets are dangerously close to some of the houses.
3) No marking for tees so this cannot really be considered a course unless you just play from basket to basket.
4) No obstacles to worry about. Just don't hit a house or turn one over into the tall grass in the middle.
5) I imagine this place is flooded in non 100 year droughts such as what we have been in for the entire year.
6) Nothing irks me more than using distance alone as the only challenge on a course.
7) Grass teepads are always a negative.
Other Thoughts: This isn't really a course with no teepads and no set place to throw from. You can make up your own course throwing from basket to basket including throwing across the wetland/tall grass area, but this just doesn't cut it. I still think it deserves 1/2 a disc because it is usable. Many people disagree with this philosophy but it is completely playable. I reserve the 0 disc rating for courses that are virtually unplayable or in disrepair to the point of needing to be removed.
