Pros: It has some good long open holes for bombing, some small hills and nice views. Cement tees, message board, tee signs on most holes. Well maintained. Fairly balanced. The holes have just enough trees to make for a fairway, craft an approach shot.
Cons: It can get a bit boring, nothing very 'tight' and no woods holes. Some ivy, on #14 in particular it's unavoidable. A few key signs are missing, making those holes hard to find and figure out. Hole #9 is just a crazy blind shot over a nasty creek, with a road on the right you can't see, woods on the left to land in but you can't run up to watch your drive fly. With no sign on that hole either you have to walk up to find it.
Other Thoughts: Bring more drivers than mid-ranges. B.Y.O Shade.

Pros: DISCatcher baskets, concrete tee pads, and benches on every hole (except 5). Beautiful park that is taken care of by a local pro who believes in working hard on your home courses and leads by example. There are 2 pin placements on every hole (except 5), that will challenge both your distance, as well as your accuracy, especially when in all longs. The design is good, with decent variety, some elevation, some unique shots, lots of OB, and water coming into play on 2 holes if an errant shot is made.
It is a fairly open course, with a large lake to the east of the course, which usually means there is a steady wind. This course is a different beast on windy days.
Cons: The ditch that is part of 7, 8, and 9's fairways can contain snakes in the warmer months, so be careful looking for an errant disc.
The park seems a bit lazy when it comes to cutting the grass at times, which can get annoying on such an open course with lots of grassy fairways. They are usually ok when it comes to cutting before tournaments.
The course does not loop around at the half way point and the bathrooms are a long walk from the disc golf course. Also, there is no reasonably close place with running water.
Other Thoughts: Overall I really like this course. There is nothing overly fancy about the course, but there is nothing that I really dislike about the course. I've played several tournaments here and I've enjoyed myself every time. There is room in the park for another course and the local pro I mentioned earlier wants to design another course if the city will let him.
