Aesthetic-- plays through a campground with many amenities. many other people around that you could possibly wing with a disc. be careful!

Teesigns-- basic but decent for what they are. "baskets" are visible from the tee so they serve their purpose to show you a perspective line.

Teepads- vary between sand and rock and dirt. uneven and tough to do any run up. not that it's necessary but would be nice.

Challenge and variety-- not much.
Other Thoughts:
Review is short but so is the course, it's pretty obvious the course wasn't designed by a dg'er. if you know someone here or are visiting go for it but if you don't, don't bother because you won't get it...

Pros: nice signs with distance and direction of pin
Cons: just chains on a pole without baskets, lacks creativity, no tee pads
Other Thoughts: I was excited to hear Sandy Pines had a disc golf course. It's located in a multi-use park (playground, tennis courts, beach adjacent) which is often times filled with kids who don't know what disc golf is. It's very likely they'll pick up your disc if you aren't paying attention. There are no tee pads but they do have nice metal signs with distance and a vector drawing of where the pin is. Most holes are fairly short. The first half is pretty much just straight, pretty open shots. A couple holes are on the beach along the lake. Hole 9 is probably the most exciting, which is a shot uphill into a cluster of trees. It's nothing I'd go out of my way to play but if you are a Sandy Pines member (or visiting a friend) you should give it a try. I think with a little help from actual disc golfers they could turn this into a more exciting course with minimal tweaks.
