Pros: Carroll County's course is relatively accessible off the main highway and provides a quick play through for a nice chance to stretch your legs and chuck some discs. The grass seems to be well-mowed and rough is otherwise minimized.
Cons: The course plays across a more or less entirely open field, with little to differentiate most holes from sheer unbridled chucking. A storage shed comes into play at one point. The baskets are a single layer of chains and not particularly good.

The tees are yellow bricks laid into the ground and can be very hard to find, with little else in the way of lines or obstacles helping you discern where a hole should start.

The modest elevation present hardly comes into play if at all.
Other Thoughts: This course teeters on the edge of being such, and is scarcely more than baskets in a field. The land can hardly accommodate a real course without even modest obstacles, and the design does little to fight this fact. It would be hard to even safari here in a meaningful way, and the baskets make for poor putting practice. Worth bagging or as a chance to stretch your legs, but not much else.

Pros: Park course consisting of 9 mostly wide open holes with blocks in ground marking the tees, and arrows pointing to the single chain baskets. Next tees are relatively close to baskets so navigation is very easy and quick to play.

Good variety of distance and use of available elevation and creek coming into play as well as the maintenance building. Great course for rank beginners. Bridges to cross the creek. Grass was freshly mowed. Very little chance to lose your disc.
Cons: Baskets aren't of the best quality. Never seen a basket using carabiners to hold the chains, and the carabiners were all worn out and hanging open, and could potentially damage discs, but still holding the chains well enough.

Natural tees although they were flat enough and work ok. No real tee signs. Mostly flat and wide open, so there is not a whole lot of challenge. I nailed the door on the maintenance building on hole 7 which is probably the most challenging hole. There is some drainage issue on hole 8 and was a bit muddy.
Other Thoughts: I was staying in the hotel across the street and happened to notice some baskets when I was leaving and decided I had to play it since it was literally right there. It was enjoyable enough and certainly convenient. If you happen to be staying in any of the HIllsville hotels the course is really close to all of them and about as easy a course to bag as possible.

Pros: Stocked scorecard box at first tee.
Easy to navigate.
Arrow signs in ground about 50 feet off of each tee to indicate basket to throw to.
Large hole# flags on the top of each basket.
Well groomed fairways.
Cons: No hole distances on the side by side paving stones marking the natural grass tee.
The Catch21 baskets have cheap attaching links, many of which no longer close, although they do still hold the chains in place.
Other Thoughts: There are very few obstacles, but elevation is used well. Tees are fairly close to the previous basket and are easy to locate. Not a lot of challenge, but It was a quick, fun round.
