Along with its adjacent Cedarock open course, this wooded course makes Cedarock Park a disc golf destination. Well designed a quarter of a century ago, it is a forest course that required the felling of no old growth trees. The only design flaws are the arbitrary mando on #7, which should have been a straight up the hill shot, rather than the hole designer desired dog leg left; only one tee pad on #14; and the need to move basket 16, as the foliage fence that separated it from tee 14 has disappeared over the decades.
Newly installed signs are superb, though a few of the holes could use a second one, as the tees are a bit apart. The newly installed DISCatchers are much easier to see through the woods than the original Machs.
I like this course. Very fun course with challenges as it is played mostly in the woods. Well maintained and kept up course. Maps can be found online and it is fairly easy to navigate through, as each tee has a diagram with an arrow pointing you in the direction to go next. concrete pads at each tee and i believe it has 2 tees per basket (longer and shorter). They did a good job of clearing out some trees while leaving enough trees in the way to make accuracy important. Plenty of hills too within this course.
I played this course right after the Cedar Rock Open Fairway course. It was really fun and there were a lot of interesting shots crossing the small creek several times.
Pros: Accuracy Needed! Great for wooded area practice cause the shots aren't as far as on the open course. Baskets were easy to see other than those on dog-legs to the left or right. There is a variety of uphill and downhill throws and it has some nice tee placements.
Cons: If you're a first timer, take the map. After you get started, its pretty easy to follow up to hole 17/18. There are woods that divided these two holes and a map is needed if there is no one in front of you.
Overall - Both this and the Cedar Rock Course are very nice to play. I would recommend either course to players of any level.
Con: Not well marked- good luck finding the first hole! You will probably lose your way around the course without help, or the online map. In the fall you'll lose every red, orange, yellow, or brown disc you throw. Miss the fairway and you'll bogey. Pins can be hard to find.
Pro: All but 2 holes completely in the woods, which is nice and cool. Good mix of left and right doglegs, and excellent elevation changes.
The Yin to Cedarock's Yang. Definitely harder than Cedarock's signature course. This course is in the woods! Accuracy rewarded, inaccuracy harshly punished.
2nd of 2 courses at Cedarock Park. This course in nestled in the trees & emphasizes accuracy. Course is well marked & well maintained. One of my favorite courses to play. I makes a nice counterpart to Cedarocks other more open course. It's a delight to play both on the same day. Definitely check it out!
