Other Thoughts: I was advised to skip this course by locals, but I wanted to give it a fair shot, so I played anyway. The locals were right.
The course features 9 baskets with 2 tee pads per basket which led to interesting interactions with other players playing to the same basket as me. The first tee was tough to find just as just about every tee thereafter. The tee poles just seem to blend in to the surrounding so well, it is hard to find them sometimes. The tees themselves were pea gravel/dirt and were terribly uneven.
The day I played, there was a terrible stench of something rotting in the dumpster that could be smelled over half the course. There were basketball and tennis courts in close proximity and a very busy road right beside you for more than half the holes. Everything combined just created a very unwelcoming environment for a disc golfer. The entire time, I felt like my presence was not really wanted for some reason. Maybe it is because I am not used to being that close to that much traffic or that many people when I am playing.
It was not all terrible. I will say the course did provide some good low ceiling practice on about half the holes. Those make in a worthwhile play if that is what you are working to improve.
In the end, I agree with locals. This is probably one to skip for experienced disc golfers. If you do go, take a map and patience with you.
