Pros: Good first course to play. Good straight throws with a few bends. Lets a newbie test arm strength on 7 & 8 without any really possibility of lost discs. Very clean and great local players that are willing to help and spread their excitement for Disc Golf.
Cons: No running water. More experienced players might find course less challenging. The rough is really rough in some places with sharp brush and sticker bushes.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great starter course and very fun for a few friends to get outside and work on their game. This course has led me to become a Disc Golf junkie so I think it has done it's job.

Pros: This is a very well balanced beginner course. Hole one is downhill, two is uphill. Three and four are shorter and over the rough, seven and eight are longer and over the fairway. Five is a righty hole, six is for the lefties. Nine is the shortest hole, but it is a small green guarded by trees and brush on both sides, making birdies and bogeys possible.
Cons: It's a new course and not quite complete yet. I'm sure short term issues like no tee signs, some unnumbered baskets and lack of turf on the new fairways will soon be taken care of. A more long term issue is the excessive openness of the course. Having one hole where distance is the only obstacle to overcome is okay, but two back to back (7 and 8) is too much.
Other Thoughts: Despite the issues stemming from the novelty of the course, it was rather fun to play. It reminded me of a much smaller version of Baker's Farm (100+ miles due north of here) where open farmland was transformed into a very successful course. The designers have done quite well so far, given the sparsely treed land they have to work with. I'm curious to see how this one develops over the next few years, and hope that it grows into something even better.
