Pros: Good place for new players to learn. It can be fun to play a course like this once in awhile for a nice confidence booster. There are some trees.
Cons: The first time you play this course it is hard to follow the course. This is because the course has no flow or idenity. Too often you seem like you are playing the same hole, a 200 feet hole with one or two trees in between you and the basket. They are not many holes that you step up to the teebox and see a fun or exciting hole.
Other Thoughts: I am not giving the low rating because this course is short or a beginner course. I am giving it a low rating because the course lacks and idenity and after you have been playing over one month or so there is just no reason to come out here when the area has courses that are more interesting to play.

Pros: Any beginner-suitable course with minimal chance to lose a disc is a good thing.

Tees marked by large numbered posts with distances on them. Short concrete teepads (mostly) help orient you towards next basket,

Map at http://www.dgcoursereview.com.../ed1c8410.pdf was very useful for following the course.

Ace/birdie/work on your ~200' approach shots for experienced players.

Near amenities.
Cons: Since the course is in a neighbourhood park, some holes play near pavilions and a walking path.

Since the bulk of the course is below street level, it is very flat, and the ground becomes, and stays, very saturated - wear waterproof boots, and certainly have a towel to clean your discs!

Can't see the basket numbers from the tees, so at times it becomes confusing which basket to throw towards (hence the need for the aforementioned map).
Other Thoughts: Holes range in distance from 140' to 253', with 2/3rds of them falling in the 175'-225' range. A couple large trees near the basket are the typical obstacles.

For players familiar with Calvert near DC, this course is similar but with 1/3rd the trees, 1/3rd the tees, and 3x the water saturation.

Good starter course for local beginners and practice course for those more experienced, but probably not worth the diversion for someone travelling in the area.
