Mostly Finished Course
Pros: Mostly finished course in a public park. Fairway lengths are amateur to beginner friendly, while the course itself is definitely more demanding and requires some skill. There are old growth trees that make many holes challenging and the majority of holes are lefty friendly, hope you have a good anheizer shot or flick. The front 12 holes (The Harley Miller Course) are off the water and make for a good challenge for beginners. The last 6 are all thrown over/near water and through trees, adding a bit of difficulty to the course. Newly installed red tee pads on the water holes will make these last ones a bit easier for beginners who don't want to lose their discs in the swamp. The course used to get confusing to navigate between holes 6 and 7 and again between 11 and 12. But the recent addition of signs and basket arrows make it much more friendly to navigate.
Cons: There are also blue tee pads (4x4's) which extend the playability of the course, but do not really ad much more than 50-100ft in fairway distance. Unfortunately this is a public park and a tight one at that. There are many out of bounds areas and multi-use areas. Watch out for kids, runners, dog walkers, cars, fishermen, skateboarders, etc. The crossing fairways on 1&2, 5&6, 7&8, and 14&15 are obnoxious but should not be a problem generally speaking as long as the park isn't running a tournament.
Other Thoughts: The course is well maintained year round and all of the white and red tee pads are poured concrete. A fun course for daily play.

2009 Ice bowl first time here!
Pros: Very challenging, great use of space in small inner city park.
Cons: Lots of water. not sure if that really a con but, I'm glad I played it in the winter. The pond and river were frozen enough to retrieve discs from. Only other thing is a couple of fairways cross over each other.

Pros: Long challenging holes, with tight fairways. Water comes into play on many holes.
Cons: Busy city park, don't hit anyone! Also relativly flat, and some pretty old baskets.
Other Thoughts: You'll need lots of controlled drives to shoot par, espescially with leaves on the trees.
