Pros: Tee pads and baskets are now clearly marked with numbers. Pads have been cleared and sprayed with round - up. This course uses the new Prodigy baskets. It has a lot of open holes to practice throws. Amazing scenery.
Cons: Watch out for water on a few holes. Water is definitely manageable.
Other Thoughts: If you have never played this course before. It has 9 baskets. Each basket has a long and a short tee pad. You play the longs tee pads first then you play the short for your second 9 of the round. The is a small 9 hole course off to the side used for the after school care that is available to warm up on.

A box will be installed for people to get maps in the near future when playing the course.

Pros: This course is well maintained and easy to get to. It's a nice addition to an area desperately needing more courses to grow the sport. There is adequate parking near the first tee and most of the time there aren't many people playing out here. The holes are pretty well designed to offer some variety and tricky shots based on the property they started with. Some of the holes are wide open, one has an elevated basket, another a peninsula green, others water on both sides of the fairway... it's a good mix and quite a lot of fun.
Cons: Many of the holes surround a large pond that catches wayward shots quite easily. If your accuracy is better than average, you shouldn't have much of a problem. If you struggle with control, many of these holes can be quite dangerous given the baskets proximity to the water's edge. The tees are hard to find and navigation to the baskets can be confusing. There's a handful of extra baskets in the northwest corner of the lot that can be misleading for holes 2 and 3. One of the holes on the backside parallel some private property causing you to jump a fence to get your disc on some tree-kicked drives.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoy this course. Once you learn the layout it's easy to find your way around, but if you don't know where to go it can be quite frustrating. There's never anyone out here it seems so it's quite relaxing. It's also a very easy course, but given that I'm not very good I have lost quite a bit of plastic in that lake. Hopefully in the future they will take advantage of the rest of the property and add holes 10-18. Easy to play a round here in under an hour.

Pros: This course mostly plays through a wide open area punctuated by two ponds. It's primarily open but the course makes use of some of the perimeter space to get some different looks. 2 places it's basket on a mound at the edge of the woods and behind a large oak, requiring the discer to swoop in from either side of the tree. 6 also plays from the open space toward similarly raised pin. 5 and 8 play through a slightly wooded area, with an OB fence to the right on 5 and scattered trees on 8.
1, 7, 4 and 9 all require a carry or leave it as a possibility. 4 is probably the best hole on the course from a fun perspective: it's short but the basket is placed on a small peninsula in the pond with a short carry over the nook and danger behind the basket as well. The rest play more parallel to the water and give the player the opportunity to hang one over the water and crash back to safety or throw safely away from the water. 9, however, is diabolical in its path directly between the two ponds. Too far in either direction and you are swimming. 7 offers the best of both worlds, with a few scattered trees requiring you to shape a shot, but the threat of the pond to the left of the fairway is strong.
That leaves 3 as the only chance to really air it out safely on this mostly open course. Which gives the course a nice variety for something that doesn't look like much on first glance.
Cons: I'm not sure how much further this course is going to be developed so there is room for improvement here. But navigating this one is a chore. For starters, not the six baskets in the small nook of the field. These are not part of the course. Second, the tees are marked by flags in the ground which can be difficult to see from a distance, especially if you don't know which direction to go from the previous basket. Even the start can be difficult as the first thing I found was the 2 basket and had to work back from there.
And as much as the course is the best that could be done on the property, it isn't particularly interesting terrain and there is no elevation at all. It's a fun but not especially notable niner.
Lastly, the water here might be too much for a target audience of new players. (With there not being enough real difficulty for experienced players.) So it is a bit of a tweener in terms of who it should appeal to.

Pros: * Very nice scenery with the lake and a handful of live oaks
* The three holes playing along lake add some real excitement - accurate drives are a must
* Variety of hole lengths - not just a pitch and putt course, and they've even added a elevated basket to keep things from being too basic
* Breeze off the lake helps keep you (relatively) cool in the south Georgia sun.. and ... thinking optimistically...perhaps blows your discs *away* from a watery death?
* Four practice baskets sit off in a corner; would be a good place to practice putting and approach shots since they are fairly close together
Cons: * Tees are just grassy areas with survey flags telling the hole number. Those will not last forever, of course, and I would worry with more play erosion might become an issue
* With no signage, the layout is a little confusing especially with the extra baskets out in a field. I made a map with what I believe is the correct layout
* Pretty easy to lose a disc here due to the lake on #s 1,4,9 and #5 could steal a bad throw too
* Being generally open, it's going to be rather warm on the course during the summer months, har har
* Since this is located on church grounds, you probably shouldn't show up when church is underway. Looking on their website, it appears after-school programs may use the course, too. Just showing basic consideration should keep everyone welcome here
Other Thoughts: This course has the new Prodigy baskets - not really convinced they catch any better than any of the other baskets around but it's interesting to compare them if nothing else.
