Nash Community College, a small gem

Pros: This is a very nice addition to the Rocky Mount area, and seems like an overlooked small gem. There's a nice mix of open and wooded holes, with a variety of distances and lines that should be reasonable for all skill levels to enjoy. Clearly, local disc golfers worked on carefully designing this course, and it shows in how nicely the holes play.
An obvious highlight is the water carry on hole 12, teeing off from a nicely built wooden deck. Also unique is hole 15, which plays downhill through a landscaped garden.
Cons: - Roadways, paved walking paths, and unpaved wooded hiking trails are in play for quite a few holes, presenting quite a few distractions, and some safety concerns. Most of the open holes have good visibility, where you usually won't be throwing blind into these trafficked areas. But do proceed with caution on the wooded holes and the hiking trails around them, especially since quite a few of these holes have a blind finish. I didn't encounter any hikers during my round, but it's surely possible.
- Navigation can be an issue. The uDisc course map will be essential to have along, but sometimes it's still not clear which path to take. And sometimes the teepads are not obvious either, and are just marked with stones that you have to look for. Distances are also not marked, and will again require consulting with the uDisc map. Perhaps these amenities will improve soon.
- The water carry on 12 could use a much larger teepad.
Other Thoughts: Quietly, this is a very nicely-designed course, with quite a few fun holes to play. Better navigation and tee signs would be an easy way to bump up this course's playability. If you can find a quiet time without much traffic around the college, perhaps weekends, this course might be a lot more peaceful and stress-free to enjoy. I played on a weekday morning, and that may not have been the right choice.

Pros: Very challenging! Course is different from most other courses in the rocky mount area. Makes you use a wide variety of shots. Beautiful course and campus!
Cons: Needs signs and directional arrows to help with navigation. The school is supposed to be getting these soon (per staff). Bigger mat needed on hole 12.
Other Thoughts: Should be one of the best courses and most challenging in RM once completed.

Pros: Pretty setting, concrete tee pads, new baskets.
Variety of distances and flight paths.
Cons: No tee signs or distances.
Missing tee marker blocks on several holes.
Navigation is tricky for at least 6 holes.
At least 3 holes play next to or over roadways.
Other Thoughts: Directional arrows are needed for transition between most holes.
Tee # and distances spray painted on the tee pads would be quite useful.
Painted or taped basket spokes pointing to the next tee pad would be useful, but only if the basket and poles are fixed in place.
The course is designed with a skilled player in mind, possibly missing it's target audience.
