Pros: Very fun and sometimes frustrating course. There is a great mix of hazards including a little bit of water and a lot of woods. The tee signs (not all were present) are the coolest i have ever seen, probably led to the getting stolen. It is also nicely secluded and few of the holes interfere with one another.
Cons: In the summer there is a lot of prickly weeds that go uncut, you must wear pants after june. Really muddy after rain. A lot of hills.
Other Thoughts: First course I ever played, right after it was built. Since then it has undergone a major overhaul for the better.

Pros: A nice city park boasting a nice disc golf course featuring elevation and mostly wooded holes.
Amenities. Shelters, Bathrooms, Walking trails and plenty of parking.
Variety. Decent variety of holes with many tight technical lines requiring accuracy and a decent number of left to right and right to left lines, good elevation changes, water comes into play on a couple holes, and there are a few mostly open holes.
Relatively Clean. A bit rough around the edges in areas, but it felt mostly clean and well maintained with sporadic garbage cans and clear tee pads and fairways.
Local Scene. Local tournaments and leagues available, all of the locals I met were friendly and helpful.
Tees. All of the tees were either rubber or concrete (I believe in transition to all concrete), they were level and performed as expected.
Signage. Though a couple of signs were missing or broken and the rough map wasn't entirely helpful, I'll still leave this in the pro section as they were some of the coolest looking signs that I've seen. They included Hole number, par, distance, and the rough map.
Navigation. In a couple spots I had to take a moment to make sure I was going in the correct direction, but I was never frustrated finding my way around.
Scenery. For being in a city park it felt relatively isolated in a nice wooded "natural" feeling area.
Access. In the city, not far off the freeway it is not difficult to get to this course in the mecca of DG that is the Quad Cities area.
Replayability. This is another course that was challenging and enjoyable enough that I feel a draw to go back and face the challenge again.
Cons: Beginner Friendly. Overall I'd say this is a great place for more advanced players to work on tight lines and elevation shots. Someone new to the sport may get frustrated with these shots.
Other Users. Mostly it seemed to be primarily a Disc Golf area, but I had to wait for several pedestrians on the paths that wind through the park. Fisherman may also become a problem.
Map/Scorecard. Print one out beforehand if you want one along, I couldn't find one available on site.
Other Thoughts: In the Quad Cities disc golf mecca this is an average course, I'd make it a point to play several of the other higher rated courses in the area before this one, but if you have the time, this course is definitely an enjoyable round.
