One of the best courses I've played in NC (in my opinion) requiring a variety of throws and technical shots. Brightly colored baskets are easily seen from the white tee boxes and elevation change is present at almost every hole. A buddy and I tried to play the blue tees but we quickly changed our minds after I about lost the beast in the raging Yadkin river. In other words, you better be good if you plan on playing from the blue tees due to the tight narrow fairways paired with significant distance. You're pretty much always guaranteed an ace run from the red tees. The layout of this course is amazing but be prepared to take a hike! The developers did an excellent job with installing stairs or switchbacks at holes were there is significant elevation change. Quality benches at every hole with bag holders. This course was super easy to navigate (didn't get lost one time on my first round). Overall, this is a very challenging yet fun course to play at any skill level and I recommend checking it out if you love the outdoors and bangin' chains!
Pros: Well, it is a great course. And if you are playing disc golf to lose weight (like myself), you are in for a treat. It has been measured out at 2 miles in length with MANY elevation changes. The waterfall fairway (#7) is my favorite hole, but they each hold a special place in my heart. I aced #9 on Oct 9th (hit chain-high on naked pole). That was AWESOME! (Beat Roadrunner turned over nicely on this narrow/long fairway.)
The 3 sets of tees is GREAT! Distances on red will work great for ace races too. Almost all holes are wooded; thus the distances aren't extremely long, but shots must be well-placed. The designers were obviously forced to focus on strategic throws instead of long bombs with the lack of "level" or "playable" land out there.
Lots of water. Only the Yadkin River plays with a penalty, however.
There's an alternate loop (to avoid added hiking); play 1, 2, 6, 3, 4, 5 and then 7. It's called the "Big Hairy Route", after the member who recommended it.
Shortest #18 you will ever see. But strategic throws are again a MUST. Two guardian trees protect the basket and can/will knock your drive to the OB (road) or the valley (to the right).
Holes #19 and #20 have recently been added and the course now plays at a par 60.
Lots of parking. Many shelters. 8 trash cans around the course. Bag hooks on ALL holes. Next tee markers where/as needed to keep you headed in the right direction. Professional tee signs.
Overall, a well done course - yeah... the folks who built this one have very nit-picky personalities; obviously.
Cons: Highland HILLS!! The "hills" is very accurate in the naming of the course. There are benches on EVERY tee though.
Other Thoughts: Play it. You will need a rest afterward, but heck, that's what this game is about... EXERCISE FOLKS! And fun. This course is a challenge to all. And it's fun for all abilities with the red, white and blue tees. (Some red and blue tees are not yet finalized - dug out and built up).
