At least it's 8 baskets
Pros: There are at least 8 baskets on the property. That's all we could find though we didn't waste a lot of time scouting. A number of these are tucked into the treeline to make the most of the available land. The baskets were all in solid shape. Not sure of the type/brand. Looked similar to chainstars. Never going to be busy when school is out. Free to play and permanent.
Cons: No tee signs. No tee pads. No idea how it's intended to be played. Not playable during school hours. Not sure if we were even close to playing the intended layout but if we were it doesn't end near the start. Not much of any elevation change here. Lots of wooded areas on the property that were not utilized.
Other Thoughts: Do not go out of your way to play this unless you need to play as many courses as possible. Just plain unexciting for the traveling discer. Would be cool if I had this at my high school though. Just no way to figure out what's the idea here.
Not Really Worth The Drive
Pros: - The grounds itself are pretty well kept but that's about the only plus for this course
Cons: - No maps, hole numbers, ETC...
- No tee boxes
-The course layout is pretty poor unless you are a LHBH with a Hyzer shot. (If so this might be your course.)
- Holes 5-9 follow the tree line around the H.S. athletic fields which make for annoying shots.
- Probably going to be a limited amount of days that you can play the course due to it's proximity to High School and it's fields
Other Thoughts: - Kind of a middle-of-nowhere course that may not be worth the drive.
My last minute decision to play 1 more course
Pros: 1) This course is just another exposure of the game to more young people. I hope it brings people to learn to love the game as much as we all do.
2) Nice use of the edge of the woods on a handful of the basket locations. I wish some of the holes could have been completely set into the woods but understand why it wasn't done possibly.
3) This property has potential to be a really good course, one that not only beginner students would like but a course that even the better local players might come to play on occasion. There is a pond and there are plenty of woods that are underused from a disc golf standpoint.
4) Beginner friendly because it is virtually free of obstacles. The distance will challenge the beginners but that is the main part of the challenge on this course.
Cons: 1) As the course plays right now there just is not enough interest in the challenge or the use of the best features on this property.
2) There are no tees to indicate where to throw from which also leads to confusion on a couple of holes since you can see 2 or 3 baskets. I just threw basket to basket since there was no clearly worn area in the grass. It also made a couple of the holes really long.
3) #1 basket is completely out of the ground. I played until I hit the basket and called it good. I am not sure if it had been moved or if someone had just taken it out of the ground for no apparent reason. Either way it should get put back in the ground before it gets stolen.
4) Unavailable for play during school hours I assume. There also are some other sports fields that would interfere with this course at certain times.
5) Very flat property overall. There is maybe 10 vertical feet of elevation change and it is very subtle so it is hardly noticeable and will barely affect your throws.
6) No defined lines except for like 2 holes . . . just pick the line you want to throw and execute it. The options are endless when you have nothing in your way.
Other Thoughts: There isn't a lot to say about this course. It has outstanding potential if they used more of the key features on this property, but as it stands there just is not that much challenge or interest in the existing holes. Perhaps if tees were marked I would feel better since I just threw from basket to basket.
