Pros: Aesthetic--plays on the front nine of a ball golf course. please remember that ball golfers have the right of way at all times. You may have to wait to throw.

Baskets--MVP Black Hole. First time throwing on these, they are nice baskets and catch well but the black bands are hard to pick out at times when the baskets are tucked into tighter woods.

Routing and Nav--- between the map and the next tee signs navigations was easy. There are white stakes places where they prefer the disc golfers walk/cart. Just follow them.

Teeboxes--grass for now but I'm, sure these will be updated in the future. Longs are marked with white stakes and blues for the shorts. Combo Tees have both blue and white stakes.

Challenge & Variety-- There is a ton of variety here with monstrous 900+ footers and short little 225 footers. The Challenge here lies in the rolling hills and manicured greens all while trying to avoid the wetlands on the left of the fairways.

Pin placement-- some very unique pin placements. Top of hills, in line with a line of trees, down a tree "hallway." The pins here seem very "not-obvious" like they were on the north course.

Tee placement-- I don't use this one much, but teeing off along side the ball golf tees is awesome. It really gives you the feeling you are playing ball golf.

Short tees-- I think this will help the south course to become like the beginner course here. Some of the shorter tees are around 150', although there is a 700+' short tee
Cons: Some duplicates here:
Pin placements-- There are several pins here that are down tree hallways. Yes, this is unique but normally it's a do or die proposition. It's like missing your exit in the desert, you may have to go back a few miles to get going the right way...

#8-- lets talk about the 8th hole. 250 foot 8 foot wide tree tunnel to another 300+ to the hole. I may just not like this one but it seems a bit redic...

#15-- a very short little hole but it throws directly down a cart path. normally, you are throwing WITH traffic but it presents a hazard if, say, the beer cart is heading out...
Other Thoughts: Overall, I think this is the way the sport is heading with more disc golf on ball golf courses. With 36 distinct holes in this complex, it is now a destination to be sure.
