Pros: This course is on a Community Center with many other activities nearby. The course follows a paved exercise trail. The holes are short and every hole is ace-able, probably nothing over 200 feet. The DGA baskets catch great. The course is designed for kids at the community center and a nearby high school.
Cons: If anyone is using the other amenities then the course will be unplayable. I hit exercise equipment a couple of times. The equipment actually serves as obstacles many times. My friend overthrew the last hole and landed his disc on a skateboard ramp.

Tee areas vary and sometimes are tough to find. On hole 1 we couldn't find a tee so we teed off from a spot in the grass which was worn. Other holes had square tiles which we teed off from. A few holes had a number spray painted on the walking trail to tee from.

Other Cons:
- no tee signs
- no hole distances
- fences to go around to retrieve errant throws
- several safety issues
Other Thoughts: Following the course isn't tough if you follow the trail but finding where to tee from is tough sometimes. After #7 you can't see the next hole but just keep with that paved trail and you will come to a point where you see the basket (not sure about the tee though.)

The course stays along the perimeter so sometimes there is a fence a few feet behind the basket. I admit, I enjoyed throwing my disc hard at the basket without fear of overshooting it.

It's a quick round with some fun ace runs but there are just too many cons. Even without the safety issues the course would become boring to a regular player quickly. I hope the course gets kids playing and enjoying the sport. That will be the greatest success.

Pros: Let me preface this review by saying this course is built for kids.

Layout - It's basically a bunch of 100-200 foot holes that follow an exercise course on a horseshoe shaped 1/2 mile walking trail.

You start out on the right and follow the horseshoe trail down and around to your left so holes 1-6 are straight on but favor LHBH or RHFH because a fence and woods are on your right. 7-9 are short little hyzers.

It's probably fun for the kids and gives them something new to do.

Equipment - Nice baskets.

Atmosphere - It's an older rec facility and the course flows around some fields. There were no kids out there the day I went but that could be an issue some days.
Cons: Layout - Again it's meant for kids but also again 1-6 are pretty much the same shot and 7-9 are little hyzers along fencing.

A good amount of the baskets are right near the walking trail or the kids exercise equipment that follows the trail. That could be an issue if the kids aren't careful.

It's all pretty much what you would expect for a 9 hole course crammed in to a space that doubles for other uses.

Equipment - There are these little 2' square things that are pads or they just use the walking trail. Holes are marked with spray paint.

Atmosphere - It's definitely not the most picturesque course out there.
Other Thoughts: Unless you're on some kind of mission to play every course in NC (myself) or you live in the area and have a kid there is no reason to come here.
