Beer and Golf
Pros: Short, fun course right beside a brewery. Course has 9 holes, but two separate tee boxes on each hole, one for the front 9 one for the back. Very short, makes for a quick round anytime. Course is all sand, so wear proper footwear.
Cons: Short course, not necessarily a con, just keep that in mind when going.
Course is all sand, again not a con per say, but keep that in mind and wear proper footwear.
Other Thoughts: Great short course with the added benefit of grabbing a beer for the course.
Beer + Disc Golf = Awesome!

Pros: This course is attached to a brew pub and they provide to-go cups to take craft beer on the course. Multiple tee positions to change up the play.
Cons: It is a small course. No real driver throws here if that's a bad thing. Great for practicing short game though!

Best of both worlds
2 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: -Course on the property of a micro brewery.
-Solar light under every basket and nearby streetlight allow night golf here year round.
-Concrete pads and signage.
-Did I mention it's at a brewery?
Cons: -Only 9 holes and quite short, low ceilings make the holes difficult to ace.
Other Thoughts: Great way to spend an afternoon/evening if you don't want to play Joe Eakes.

Fun Little Beach Course
Pros: Great tees, signage, baskets
Good mix of shot types required
Cons: None really; it's a 9 holer in a small wooded area bordered by a brewery and two roads. As long as you know that, then it's just about as good as you could expect.
Other Thoughts: Had fun here. Great mix of hyzer/anny/forehands required. One mando on 7 (I think), mostly to stop a spike hyzer out over the road I believe. Lots of tight lines to hit, so even though it's a short course, birdies aren't super easy to come by. Lots of low ceiling shots too and pretty ugly rough. Originally planned to just bring a Judge but decided at the last minute to bring my small bag. Glad I did. Some of the low ceiling shots are better executed with a mid I believe than a putter. Still, threw putter most of the round. Had donuts at Wake and Bake (world famous), got through all 9 holes in just over 30 minutes, saw a couple of hawks looking for breakfast and then visited the aquarium down the road. Great little course in a great area.

Pros: Nice short course that's good for ironing out the kinks in your short-game.
Tee signs are a plus.
Any tees that are close to the previous basket are protected by an obstacle or shrubbery.
Cons: Highly susceptible to flooding. I played after a rainstorm and there was significant standing water on hole 1, 2, and 9. I suspect that the Hole 2's tee is on a platform for that very reason.
Other Thoughts: Not worth a trip if you're going to play it and not one of the neighboring courses.

Brewery with DG, at the Beach!
Pros: Literally, in the backyard of a brewery (Good Hops). Need I say more? Ok a few more things...
Brand new DISCatchers, cement tee pads, a few benches also on the course.
All holes are about 150 - 180', shouldn't need more than putters.
Had a couple of left and right holes, but most are straight.
Cons: If anyone thinks of any Cons, see my first Pro above!
Other Thoughts: Fun little course to use as a warm up or cool down after playing Joe Eakes. In fact, Dow Rd is a great "bypass" from the normal beach traffic. Heading south on Dow, the speed limit is 55, the road makes one turn and you are at Joe Eakes. Like a DG Highway!!
It would be fun to play this, have a beer, play again, have another and see how your game is affected. Just remember that DD for the ride home.
Most of the holes have ample lines to hit, but 8 and 9 get real tight, you will earn birdies on these two.
I ran this course on a Sunday morning after playing Joe Eakes, so I didn't get to sample the product, but that Topless Amber Ale is definitely on my list to try!

Nice pitch & putt at a brewery
Pros: Trinity DGC is a nice little pitch and putt course at a brewery, Good Hops, at Carolina Beach. It's only 5 minutes from what I would describe as a white level (intermediate) course in Kure Beach, Joe Eakes Park. Trinity is perfect for a warm-up round before Joe Eakes or it its own right if you're checking out the brewery, want to play a putter-only round, or introduce a newby to the game.
+ Designed to be a beginner-friendly and/or putting practice course. For these objectives, Trinity hits the mark.
+ For a short 9-holer, there's a good mix of anhyzer holes (2, maybe 3 for RHBH), 1 hyzer hole, and a lot of dead straight holes. This course will make you work on putter drives. The fairways are tight.
+ Located at a brewery.
+ Brand new baskets.
+ Good signage and easy navigation.
Cons: For what this course is intended to be, Trinity is really strong. Don't misinterpret my 2.0 rating as a knock on this course. It's simply a short, beginner-in-mind course.
- Not particularly challenging. Nothing over 200 feet.
- Some of the beachy underbrush isn't fun.
Other Thoughts: If you're visiting Kure, Carolina, or any of the southern New Hanover beaches, definite check out Good Hops and Trinity DGC.
