Fun. And thatís what matters
Pros: This course is tight and technical, but there are numerous lanes available for most drives. Righty or lefty, forehand or backhand, you should find a route through the trees.
Unlike many other densely wooded courses, the punishment for missing a line is not terminal. You can still get through the woods even if you smack a tree early in your drive and ricochet 50' to the left. There are dozens of trees in each fairway, but there are also lanes for you to make the best of your scramble game.
The course designer has made the most of the natural barriers on the property. When you view each hole from the tee pad, what you see is what you get. There are no superfluous OB hazards or mandos forcing you to make trick shots. The challenge of the course is in tackling the rocks, trees, and crazy elevation changes.
Signage is of amateur quality, but there is enough of it that I only got turned around once my first time through. Each hole leads directly to the next tee.
My feeling is that hole 9 on the blue layout is the signature hole. The drive is straight downhill, around a tree, with a strong turn to the left. The basket is on a slope with a realistic chance at rollaway putts. Bring a spotter, but it's a great feeling when you hit the line.
Cons: Many throws are short enough that you can toss from a standstill, but the dirt tee pads are short and lumpy.
With the densely wooded fairways, it can be tricky to see the baskets.
The constant elevation changes and rugged terrain may be an issue for players with old knees or bad ankles.
Only 9 holes, and while there are multiple tee pads, I can't imagine spending a whole day here.
Other Thoughts: There are two ways you can think of this course. The first is that this is a really small "kiddie" course when compared with many other full-size disc golf courses. The second is that this is an epic backyard tiki course.
When scoring for this review, I had to use the standards I set for a more traditional course. So, it gets a low rating. It simply doesn't have the features, amenities, or scope of other courses. That understood, what matters most is that this is a fun, well-maintained, and challenging short course with a few holes that give you the big course feels.
