Pros: Can be played quickly. We're talking 45 minutes at a leisurely pace.
Movable pins (which hopefully won't be stolen)
Most holes present a birdie chance for good throws, which from hole to hole require different skills (long throws, accurate hyzers/anhyzers, picking the right line, etc.)
The course is pretty clean as there are trash cans on most holes.
The course is easily navigated.
There are restrooms on site.
Well mowed and taken care of.
Everybody I have run into in the park (both players and other visitors) have been friendly.
Its pretty challenging to loose track of a wild throw. You can reach out for throws that you might not normally chance. It also lets you work on throws you don't have as much practice with in actual situations.
Cons: The holes are a little short for my liking in the short placements.
Poor throws aren't punished if you don't play out-of-bounds.
I would like to see more trees on the course (though there are several young trees which will help this in time)
A couple missing signs, but it isn't hard to see where to go.
Other Thoughts: The course doesn't present a real challenge, but it does test a few different skills. It would be a good course to learn on, and it is enjoyable if you aren't looking for something to test your limits. I've played while the pins were in both the short and long placements, and I find the course much more enjoyable on the long setup. If it was only the short placements I would have only rated it a 1.5 or so, but the long placements make it significantly better. If you have time it would be worth your while to move them before playing (though I suppose that if you're reading this you probably won't know where to place them)

Pros: -The course can be played in 30 minutes as long as you don't lose any discs.
-Hard to lose a disc
-Trash cans at some holes keep the course pretty clean
-Mowed fairly often
-Multiple pin locations that ANYBODY can move(long and short options)
-Good course if you are just starting to disc golf
-Bathrooms in the park
-Usually isn't crowded
-Recently planted trees(hopefully will grow and make the course more difficult)
Cons: -Fairly short course
-Not very challenging for intermediate/advanced players
-Right next to the back yard of some houses
-Only one(maybe two) holes where you can really unleash your driver
-They recently removed a lot of the bigger trees so it has become even easier
Other Thoughts: I've played this course over 100 times probably. It is a good course if you're crunched for time or don't want to lose a disc. It is also short enough where you work on your midrange and putting game a lot.
