Other Thoughts: A good course if you're in the neighborhood and want to get some quick easy holes in. Nothing special. Plenty of open space to get some field work in here. Half the holes are ace runs for the longer arms. Nice bridges and benches. Hard to lose a disc, but possible.

Very good 9-hole course
8 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Makes good use of the available land. There is a practice basket between holes 9 and 1 that now has a natural tee so that you can play it as a 10th hole. I was told a year ago that a pro shop would open on site once discs arrived, but when I went in June 2019, the associated pastor who spearheaded the course was off site with the youth group, and the lady in the office knew nothing about it. There is also a bathroom and a water fountain inside. The building (the church rec center) is open normal-ish business hours. The Innova baskets are in great shape.The concrete tee pads are good and generally long enough. There are plenty of trash cans and benches throughout the course and more were added recently. There is a very nice course map by tee #1. As for the holes themselves, #7 looks as if it is intended as a mando island, but the tee sign still does not say so. It also has an elevated basket. #8 is a tunnel shot (not overly narrow, but I missed the fairway both times on my first visit) that will punish you with severe rough on either side of the fairway. Water is in play on holes 8 and 9. Most holes give you options for routes to the basket, so the course doesn't really favor any particular style (RHBH, etc.). Tee signs are nice but don't have a map of the hole. Not really a big deal since you can see the basket from the tee on 8 of 9 holes. The tee signs also have bag hooks.
Cons: There isn't much elevation change. Holes 4 & 5 basically share a fairway (back and forth), so you might end up either watching someone throw a tee shot right at you or holding them up while you throw your approach. A RHFH from #3 tee could easily land in the #4 fairway. The middle part of the course is a kind of open, with just a few trees, and comes pretty close to the interstate. The walk from hole 9 to 1 (or 1 to 9, depending on where you start) is kind of long, but the 10th hole (playing to the practice basket) breaks that up nicely.
Other Thoughts: The church staff is VERY nice. They are mostly new to the sport, but they are learning and want to make this a place where everyone can enjoy disc golf. There is a dedicated parking lot for disc golf. No. 9 tees from that lot, so lots of people start with No. 9, then play the 10th hole, followed by 1-8. No. 8 ends right at the disc golf parking lot.
