Pros: I guess the pros are that there are 18 good quality baskets and 18 concrete tee pads in the woods near two other courses. This shows that the investment in disc golf and the community in the area.
Cons: This is not a realistic course that you could play and expect a reasonable round. The holes are just too long, with too many turns, and way too many trees. That’s not a competitive complaint; it’s a comment on sound course design practices. (A reasonable hole isn’t Par 5, 731 feet through a no-fairway forest as you will find at Hole 2!) If you have to add a bunch of extra strokes allowed with multiple Par 4 and Par 5 holes, perhaps the issue is course design.
Other Thoughts: Here’s where I think this course has redeeming value- this is an EXCELLENT practice course. Bring your favorite fairway driver, pick a gap between the many trees, and shoot it. Practice straight, controlled shots. You’ll hit trees. Guaranteed. When you finally get to the green, reward yourself with a putt shot, but don’t bother keeping score. Then, take your newly acquired skills and go play a real course- like the Preserve, right next door. The original concrete tee pads were small which encourage a point-and-shoot style, perfect for fairway driver practice.
