Pros: Full 18-hole course in a small community park. 2 tee locations for each hole with one basket.

Very easy to navigate and play. First 4 holes play wide open and straight and offer a nice little warmup.

Course is mostly short, but with a few longer, open holes mixed in. Fairways are all fair and offer just enough variety to keep you interested.

Wooded holes have a decent variety of short ace or birdie opportunities, and a few longer technical holes that require some placement.

Some small elevation is used to add some challenge to a couple of the more basic holes. No huge elevation, but it does come into play several times.

Natural tee pads didn't seem all that worn so my guess is this course doesn't get much traffic. Probably a decent place to practice and work on your short game. About an even mix of open or mostly open holes and wooded holes. Not too much lost disc risk.

Pretty good place to go if you need to work on your ace count. Several holes right around 200', and the open holes are mostly short enough to reach with a driver or mid.
Cons: Most of the holes are pretty basic and bland. Not a lot of shot shaping required. Most of the open holes don't have enough elevation or risk/reward factors to make them much fun. Heck, even I could birdie them.

Natural pads and very basic signage.

Hole 1 had quite a bit of Goose poop around the ground so check your disc, and watch your footing. Other holes by pond may be at risk too.
Other Thoughts: This is one of those courses that you'd like to have close by for putter rounds and practice. It isn't good enough to attract huge numbers of players, but offers enough challenge to help keep you interested. I'd recommend it as a place to practice or bring newer players to the course. The open holes won't punish you, and most of the wooded holes aren't very long. Great mix for a round with a family or kids too.

Not a course worth going out of your way for, but if you're near by it will definitely give you your disc golf fix.

Pros: This is a nice park and course with no "wow" factor. It's worth a play if you are nearby. There are plenty of pros to list but there just isn't anything to rave about.

-nice mix of distance and open/wooded
-clean and safe
-fairly scenic
-fairways were well maintained
-navigation was easy
-tee signs
-bridges over wet areas
Cons: There isn't anything that seemed too bad to me:

-Natural tees marked with a white, circular piece of metal
-basket placement could have been a bit closer to the water to give a bit more risk/reward factor (maybe even a throw over)
Other Thoughts: The course/ park is down a gravel road behind a church. Go straight down that road until you see the sign for the DG course then park to the right by the pavillion (#18 ends closer to that lot.) That sign you turned at has a course map on it's backside.
I really wish I could rate this higher but 2.5 is listed as "decent" and that's what it is.

Pros: Elevation changes, Nice locale, park has playground and a nice pond. grass is thick but a low risk of losing a disk if you keep you eye on it.
Cons: woods holes could use some fairway definition, 6 and 8 are very narrow. Tee pads not defined, you can find the marker but not sure wear they expect you to throw from around it.
Other Thoughts: The setting is a nice little park with a nice playground atop the hill. you play 1-4 around a pond, not much challenge to these holes and not much risk of putting it in the water either. then you head into the woods for i think 5-10, i found most woods holes to need definition. hole 6 was extremely narrow fairway, and 8 narrowed and i felt blocked the basket. 10 i remember the distance being misleading. you then come out of the woods for i believe the rest of the course. 11 has it's basket tucked off to the right so when you tee off you are looking at 12's basket. the rest of the holes are almost all open with the only major challenge being distance and elevation changes up and down the hills. Wind really messes with you on these last holes out in the open. then after 18 yo have to hike a little to get back to the lot.
