Pros: A good amount of open shots and nice place to shoot. You can bomb a lot on this place and get some good turn out. There are a good amount of uphill and downhill shots and no brush or anything to lose discs.
Cons: No shade at all. A few holes are around roads and playgrounds so you may hit children or cars( my friend actually hit a car which drove right into his disc but no damage was done so they didn't care)
Other Thoughts: It's fun, you may want to go with someone who has been there cause it can be hard to figure out where to go or which bucket to shoot at sometimes.

 A Decent Course With Some Major Flaws

Pros: This course has some fun holes, and even though it's pretty open it does have some trees and hills that it uses to its advantage to create some tricky holes. The fairways are mowed, and the weeds in the rough can be real tall, encouraging you to have accurate drives off the tees. A few of the holes favor backhand drives while others favor forehand drives. There's also a wooded area near some of the holes. This is a nice big park for disc golf, and it has become a good course for people to play, especially when there aren't any soccer games or baseball games being played and there aren't many cars in the parking lot either.
Cons: First of all, it would be nice if they could get cement tee pads so the players aren't standing on uneven ground when they tee off. There are quite a few holes on this course that are real close to the baseball fields and soccer fields, and it isn't safe to play those holes when those fields are being used, unless you're a real accurate thrower. There are also a few holes located near the parking lot, which means that on a busy day a lot of people's cars are in danger of getting hit by a disc that is thrown slightly off target. Some of the holes are way too short and easy to get a low score on. One other problem I have with this course is the par that's assigned for the holes. Most of these holes are in par 3 range, but a lot of them are labeled as par 4s, and at least one is labeled a par 5. There are holes that are long enough that they can be considered par 4s, but some of them are labeled as par 5s instead. This really doesn't make sense. It's way too easy to get under par on these so-called "par 4s" and "par 5s" because of how short and easy they are. Also, it would be nice if they could add some trees and bushes to some of the more open holes to help make them a little more fun and challenging to play.
Other Thoughts: I don't mind playing this course, but it's not a good idea to play here when there are soccer games and/or baseball games being played because some of those playing fields can interfere with people playing disc golf, and there are also a few holes where it would be easy for a player's disc to accidentally hit a car in the parking lot.

 Not as long as you think

Pros: Lots of room for big arms. Mowed fairways help navigation. Some elevation changes, one long uphill. Not alot of disc golf traffic.
Cons: The downloadable map with scorecard is decieving. The lengths listed on card are nowhere near actual distances(play far shorter than listed). Couldnt find tee off on #14(blind uphill drive). No signs. Couldnt use intended tee box on #10 due to kids soccer game. Lots of traffic due to soccer and field hockey games going on. Played early Sat morning.
Other Thoughts: Dont go on a Sat morning. At least not during soccer and field hockey season. With signage this would be a really nice course. Need to get the scorecard found on this site figured out as it is not correct to actual distance.

Pros: -Long holes, a couple over 600ft
-great safe area, big park
-not too crowded ever
-18 holes
-nice new baskets
-beautiful open fairways
-elevation changes
Cons: -download a course map or youll never figure this park out
- the layout of the course is a bit goofy
-several baskets near parking lots (literally like 5 feet from parked cars)
-must throw over the road with cars driving by some times.
-holes criss crossing each other
-mediocre course design, theres so much room here and they laid this course out wrong in my opinion.
-no pads , tees are natural
-no signs, poles, markings for the course whatsoever
-along the highway for the first 5 holes,
- it is usually very windy.
-lacking more obstacles, most holes are just very long with 1-2 trees to avoid.
Other Thoughts: This park used to be a pole course, i played it 15 years ago.It continues to get better every year. Plan on being here a while, lots of ground to cover.

Pros: Long, with some big hills, mowed-grass fairways define the holes and walks. Tee signs not needed. Little to no rough or danger. Good and plenty O.B. hazards. Balanced shots.
Cons: Not much in the way of obstacles to shoot around. No tee signs at all, or map. Hole #1 has you walk away from the parking lot to the tee and back towards it, shooting at your own windshield possibly. Dirt tees are 2-3" deep in the middle, hard to run up from the side.
Other Thoughts: worth a look-see, map not needed as mowed grass leads you around

 Getting better all the time

Pros: Cascade has been getting better since it was created 3 years ago. The county now only mows the fairways making it much easier to navigate. The course is extremely long and will give you a lot of practice with your drivers. A variety of shots make this course a lot of fun. Uphill, downhill, flat, blind, short, LONG, left, right....great course.
Cons: Dirt pads accompanied with no signs can make the course difficult to navigate the first time you play it. But now that they just cut the fairways it's much easier to see where you should be going.

A Little Goofy Layout But, Fun

Pros: Very open fairways and not too many trees to worry about. Great uses of elevation and not a very busy park. Nice long holes for those of you that enjoy courses with long holes. Most of them are about 400' I would guess. Easy to find and to get to.
Cons: Some of the shots are very goofy. 12 and 13 are in each others fair way and hole 15 is RIGHT next to the parking lot. If you have a stroller, sometimes pushing it up and down the hills can be it pain. Is deffinately doable, I do it all the time just be wary.
Other Thoughts: My finace hit a car with his frisbee on hole 15. Beware!

Pros: Now has hole 12 back (it was stolen), good use of hills, open course with no woods all the way through, good for driving. Township is only mowing fairways and along the bike path so it is easy to find your way to the next hole.
Cons: Always windy even on days where there isn't a cloud in the sky, so you have to play the wind.

Pros: This park is beautiful and nice to walk especially in mid to late spring. The Course plays very long, several holes >400 and at least one >700 and these holes are very open so no worries about losing your discs in heavy forest.. Its not a very popular course and that can be great, you won't have to wait to play.
Cons: The pads are natural, which in itself isn't terrible, except they are not marked at all and since the course appears to be pretty new it can be very difficult to find the natural tee area. Course design I think could be improved, While I think there are some great holes (15) in general I think it was designed quickly and by someone who doesn't disc golf.
Other Thoughts: not much to it, its long and its open so if you don't like that combination then don't play here. I occasionally go because its a big distance course but I generally like more range in my courses.
