Pros: 1) Fun course to try and park holes . . . basically a bunch of shorter upshots . . . good practice.
2) Signs are numbered so you know what post you are throwing at.
3) Lots of birdie opportunities which is always fun to play courses where birdies are there.
4) Concrete is better than anything else. Size doesn't matter on this course because you do not need a run-up at all.
5) Beginner friendly for sure.
6) This is a pretty cool property with the creek the branches of the creek making for some interesting tee and basket locations.
7) Nice variety of foliage and tree types on this course creating some interesting obstacles and scenery.
8) Some minor elevation in play on a couple holes, it isn't a lot but it is something to alter a perfectly flat shot.
Cons: 1) Really short course which takes away from the challenge aspect of the course.
2) No benches or garbage cans by the tees, which is not a huge deal but worth mentioning.
3) 2 tee is missing and the sign on #3 is broken and missing from the post. A few others are also damaged but not broken completely.
4) Sandy tees due to the really sandy soil getting tracked onto the tees.
5) This can still be called disc golf but it just isn't the same. I played the course because I was there for the other course, but it just isn't the same as the game we all play so it gets a big deduction for this from me, only because I wouldn't be excited to play this course regularly, but if it was all I had in my home town . . . at least it is still something.
Other Thoughts: Overall I had fun here, but I wouldn't head back here regularly mostly because of the no basket issue. If there were baskets I would almost certainly come on occasion and make some ace-runs. These are all short holes and can be fun to try and park the shots or hit the posts.

Play the basket course!!!
Pros: The park is nice.
Cons: The course is laid out way to short for a golf disc. The reason that it is so short is because it was designed for beach frisbee golf. The tee pads are way too short and many some of the poles are missing.
Other Thoughts: There is a brand new basket course located at the same park and the #1 tee pad doubles for the basket course and the pole course. The hole average on the basket course is 300' with a great mix of shots and challenging basket locations. I would recommend that disc golfers play this 12 hole course for a challenge unless you want to throw putters on every holes.

Not Challenging, but Fun
Pros: It's in a nice park and there weren't that many people around when I played. It's located near Downtown Thomasville, which is a great walkable downtown typical of the smaller cities in the South.
The course was well maintained and it didn't seem to interfere with the park itself.
Good mix of longer and shorter holes with some obstructions to challenge the throws every now and then.
Cons: Very simple course design without much of a challenge.
There are no baskets, just 4x4 posts in the ground to hit as the pin.
Other Thoughts: I would play this course again. Sometimes my wife and I go up to Thomasville just to walk around downtown and grab lunch, and this is a nice excuse for me to parlay the trip into something more enjoyable. Nice playground for my daughter as well.

McIntyre Park DGC
Pros: Runs thru the whole park which is a whole city block. Some obstacles of trees. Tees well marked.
Cons: The baskets are just wooden posts. Just hit the post instead of landing in a basket.
Other Thoughts: No one else there anytime I played it.
