Pros: Cutthroat is the newest and longest course at Farragut State Park, it is a long almost 11,000 ft par 67. This is not a course I would recommend for beginners, but if you are a more experienced disc golfer it is a great course that is unlike any other course in the area.
-Very well laid out course, excellent course flow.
-Nice, big concrete tee pads.
-Variety of different tee shots.
-Requires you to plan the landing zone of your tee shot to set yourself up for another throw.
-A lot of distance, not very many other courses like this in the area.
-Typically the least played course in the park, not very much traffic.
-Pars are very fair, a lot of the par 4's are definitely 3-able with two good shots.
-Most open course on the property, but still has a good mix of wooded and open holes.
Cons: -Obviously not as complete as other courses on the property.
-Although there are tee signs on every hole they are basically just laminated images of google maps from overhead, not too big of an issue but just shows the in-completion in comparison to the other courses.
-No benches (not a huge issue to me but if you play with a big group or have a hard time walking on such a long course it may be a factor)
-Ground isn't the most level to walk on
-Tall grass in rough can make it difficult to find your discs, but I have played courses where it is much worse.
-I would not suggest this course to anybody who cannot consistently throw 350+ feet.
Other Thoughts: The previous reviews on this course were really bad, and I don't really understand why. Previous reviewers had mentioned that the course did not flow, and I did not see that at all. There are arrows on every basket pointing to the next basket, and although there are a couple long walks (4-5, 9-10) there are trails that are very easy to find, I had a map downloaded on my phone and didn't have to use it once. This course is a great addition to the courses at Farragut.

BIG Drive Big Drive Big Drive putt
Pros: Open meadows with groves of pine tress. Big driver course. Concrete tee pads. Innova baskets. Mowed fairways. Mowed paths between basket and next holes. This isn't a city park course.
Cons: Long. Average hole length is over 500 ft, with a long 1155ft on hole 5. Don't play this course after AWOL. LOL. Ground is fairly lumpy in fairway. Your ankles will get as much of a workout as your arm.
Other Thoughts: It's a huge course. Can get a little monotonous but it's different than our usual shorter courses back home. If you're at Farragut, and an avid disc golfer, give it a try.

Pros: When you are done playing this course there are plenty of other courses at Farragut worth playing.
Cons: The ground is about a uneven as can be, be prepared to roll your ankles. Grass root balls everywhere you can see in the hole 4 photo. Tall grass makes this course unplayable most of the year, even if the parks does the once a year Farragut mow job. Course has no flow. Every hole plays the same, max D, max D, putt, wonder around looking for the next tee pad. Some of the holes are not even holes, no fairways and no idea where you are going once you tee off its a guess as to what direction you are to throw next.
Other Thoughts: I would skip this course and play any of the others at Farragut. Its sad that this course is associated with the other great courses at Farragut.
