Pros: Beautiful course. A couple of really neat signature holes that make this park worth the trip.
Cons: Multiple basket placement and lack of signage makes this a VERY difficult park to play if you're not familiar with the layout.
Other Thoughts: Well worth the trip. Just see about hooking up with a local to show you the ropes.

Pros: Set out in the rolling wooded hills along a lakeside beach, this course is 15 minutes from the college town of Charlottesville. You can play a round and then go swimmIng in the lake when you are finished.

Many options are afforded as you have two permanent tees per hole and 2 (alternating) pins per hole (there are a few missing short pins due to theft). You will be working through grassy fields and thick woods, uphill, downhill and over water in a couple of occasions.

You will quickly arrive at a signature hole on #2, which is an elevated pin that goes over water to a pin out in the open grass. This is a great way to start, and you will find yourself finishing in this fashion on hole 17!
This course with be most suitable to most player skills, though some pros may find the lack of really long (par 4 & 5) holes a bit below their level. The woodsy holes are more about finesse and skill than power.
The course is really challenging and enjoyable, but I found the beauty and seclusion a big part of my experience.

Watch for the signs on the white (short) tees, this will confirm which hole you're and show the layout.
Cons: Tee pads are astro turf which I find to be decent, but are uneven. They are certainly an improvement from the natural tee pads that I played last time.

There was one spot where it was uncertain as to where the next tee pad was. You must backtrack up part of the 14th fairway to get to the 15th tee.

The pins were really hard to see, even when I knew the general area in which to look - flags, flourescent ribbons or bright paint on the baskets would help indeed.
Other Thoughts: The short tees to the short pins seemed as if almost half of them were right- turning from the tee. I am a RHFH thrower, and this is my strength, so why complain? Well, variety is important.

Most of the park-goers were picnicking and NOT playing disc on a gorgeous Sunday on Memorial Day weekend. I only saw two others playing besides myself, so I was amazed to find this place so quiet!

Pros: Layout challenge and diversity of throws
Cons: poor marking and addressing direction to hole or next hole
Other Thoughts: spent too much time trying to find how to get to next hole...played 17,18 then 15,16 in that order. due to poor direction
