It's Such A Shame-This Course Could Be Great!

Pros: Avery Preserve sits right along the hi-way. Closest to the hi-way is a large open field while further away is the woods area and the creek. There are a couple of great holes lurking here and potential for others. The course has Discaktcher baskets. The old school fiberglass tee signs are either missing or broken. The tee pads are just natural ruts. They haven't had much use lately.

# 4 is a really pretty hole. It's 307' throwing through the woods out onto a nice little prairie area. The course designer really dropped the ball here. This would have been a really lovely hole if they had stuck the # 5 pad close to the # 4 basket. Then the hole could have played back into the woods into the cool little opening ahead.
Cons: Navigation is a total mess, with missing baskets and missing tee signs. I never knew where I was exactly.

The walk all the way from the parking lot is silly. If I had any interest of ever playing this course again, I'd just pull off the road and park.

This swampy land will be a breeding ground for the mosquitos. Heavy duty bug spray is a must.

I've never cared for the fiberglass tee signs. They are such an inviting target for the midnight express crowd. Might as well put planes of glass out there for the teens to destroy. I've never, ever seen them last on any course. They are always broke, faded and crummy looking.
Other Thoughts: The course's lovely seclusion is also it's downfall as the secluded nature just leads to vandals tearing the course up. This course badly needs a local disc club to come to it's rescue and put some TLC into it. If not I'm afraid this course, with all it's wonderful potential, could fade into the sunset.

Pros: Very challenging holes that test your accuracy.
Cons: - Extremely long walk across baseball and football fields to get to the first tee
- If the course gets a hard rain then 2 or 3 holes are unplayable due to flooding.
- the shrubbery on many of the accuracy shots are way to thick. If you miss your line it makes it very difficult to find your disc, which makes for a grumpy disc golf player
- some of the holes have old railroad tracks that are an eye sore and make it very easy to lose a disc underneath them.
Other Thoughts: I've given this course several chances because I used to live close to it and each time I come back I find one more reason to never want to return
