Talking What do you think of my design?

Hey guys!

So I am trying to work with my local park district to install a 9-hole disc golf course in a local park. The only problem is the course must be seasonal(Only playable during Summer and Winter). During Spring and Fall, there are many activities going on, and the course is most crowded during this time when the soccer fields are being used. During Summer and Winter, the park is always empty, with nobody using the fields, basketball courts, or walking path. So I proposed a seasonal course and it sounds like they are on board!

The nice thing about the wooded area is it doesn't require a ton of labor. There isn't a lot of underbrush and the woods are not extremely dense.

Since it is my first course I will be installing, I could use some feedback on my design. I know it's difficult to judge a course based on a map, but just give me some basic feedback on the design. To view hole details(Par, Distance, Elevation etc.) just click on the hole's line! Hole #1 is the one between the pavilion and restroom.

Thank you!

Lol, there is a gun range past that black line. It's not really an issue because the nearest basket/fairway is over 100 feet away from it.

This seems like a dangerous design. I know you said that the park will be empty, but what about when it isn't?

During the spring and fall, when it is soccer season, the course is taken down. But during the summer and winter, there is NOBODY in the park and it is NEVER busy. And by never busy, I mean never busy. I've been to the park about 10 times this summer and I've seen a total of two people. It's just kind of a dead park that I thought could be brought to life during the soccer off-season.

That's really weird. I've never seen a "dead" park in the summer. I just put safety as a top priority, so it was kind of glaring.

Particularly strange given that it's an area where winter can be pretty harsh.

If it's as dead as you say it is... Perhaps the soccer fields aren't the issue I think they are. : \
I mean, I've never been there, so I haven't a clue what traffic that park gets, but it also looks like the walking path can be an issue. Don't people use that year round?

I'm not really a fan of shoehorning 9 holes in a shared used park where people aren't aware of the danger a person throwing discs 50+ MPH poses. Half the people aren't even aware they're walking up a fairway.
