Pros: Lots of technical shots, forces you to shape shots and use multiple discs due to varying lengths. Challenges even the most accurate arms but plenty of opportunities even for beginners.
Course is well maintained (which is to be expected when we have to pay to play) and the yearly pass is reasonably priced.
Cons: Not a lot of elevation changes and no holes where water comes into play (unless you count #10, which I don't).
#8 needs to be better trimmed on the second half of the fairway, it is sadistic enough without all the overhanging branches!
Other Thoughts: I really like this course, even though it can be frustrating at times. Stay in the fairways or you are in for a long round. You have to pay close attention to the shape of your shots as small trees and branches you don't always notice from the tee will reach out and grab that perfectly straight shot you just launched at the basket! Great place to work on your technical game.

Pros: -Good amenities: practice basket, trashcans, cement tee-pads (w. some alternative cement tees), great signage, decent course flow, benches, and clean restrooms.
-Located in a well-maintained, family-friendly park. Playgrounds and picnic areas dot the park. Enthusiastic staff and friendly locals help keep this course clean and upkept.
-Most holes play through woods with plenty of trees situated in the fairways, providing a wealth of potential lines. A nice mix of short/long, dogleg right/left, and open/wooded keeps the course's progression fresh throughout. Good risk/reward options. Several ace opportunities.
-Although predominantly flat, the design effectively incorporates all available elevation. One ace run angles up a grassy sledding hill, with a very real risk of an unfortunate roll to the bottom. The next hole has you bombing down the same hill, up a slope, over the path, and around some trees to the basket, if you're able. The next hole, a massive left-turning affair, slopes gently down through several disc-eating trees to a landing area; a tree-sheltered grassy glen nurtures the basket, far to the left. Two alternative tees provide intermediate and beginning players more direct routes.
- The shule/rough areas are well-worn and clear, making it difficult to lose a disc.
-Park appeared to have fairly low traffic, allowing a relaxed atmosphere. "Excessive alcohol" is posted as illegal.
Cons: -Current course configuration does not take advantage of available water, which is unfortunate.
-Concrete tees were somewhat short, but not enough to hamper most players; otherwise in great shape.
-$4 pay-to-play is certainly reasonable, either as a visitor passing through, or as a local (I believe yearly passes are available.) Parking is posted $4, although apparently they often don't charge (parking was free during my round.)
Other Thoughts: -Well-balanced.
-Not the most original design, but still a very solid and fun course. Challenging pro par (all par 3) tests DG veterens while the posted amateur par and alternative tee-pads provide accessibility for beginners/intermediates. Only a few holes have awkward flow but it's next to impossible to get lost due to the efficient and clear signage pointing out the correct way. Look for the blue brick markers for where to go.
-Extremely ethusiastic and friendly park workers deserve props (they were kind enough to remain jovial throughout the process of giving us the boot at closing time!)
-Certainly nothing to go far out of your way to play, but an otherwise solid option for local players or travelers looking for a fun challenge with a relaxed atmosphere.

compared to local courses
Pros: variety of hole shapes, lines, great maintence of park(trash, mowing ect)
great staff, holes flow really well, well marked
also only park around with a sign "excessive alcohol consumption not allowed" but it is allowed on site
snacks and food are cheap
only course with a practice basket around
Cons: most expensive pay to play around
only a few holes stretch out over 300ft
600ft hole is painfully skinny for distance drivers
seem to close early year round
Other Thoughts: course meant for accuracy, yet still fun for younger family members - they have discs up front for folks to borrow, in a 20mile radius its my 3rd favorite course - soon to move to 4

fresh updated course
Pros: The course has a challenging mix of shots. Great tight wooded shots with some open shots as well. Big downhill shot is fun. New cement tees with cement tees on most of the alternates as well. The Park is really putting effort into making this a destination disc golf course. I definitely added it to my destination list.
Cons: There are a few tight hard shots but if you are not a beginner these provide an attainable challenge.
Other Thoughts: This park is a great mix between other area parks. It has tight wooded shots like Bertrand and shots through mature trees like Rum Village and a great downhill bomb shot like George Wilson. Spread the word, this is a fun park.

Not bad, but pricey
Pros: There are some really great holes on this course. A great variety of tee shots and well designed layout. Some holes take you through the woods with accuracy playing a big part in making par. Some holes are long but require the same accurate tee shot to make good on the hole. There are a couple scenic and fun holes to look for. One of them is on the front nine and runs you through a line of tall pine trees for a good ways. Another fun one has you teeing off the sledding/tubing hill (in the winter) for a long shot from a high tee that is wide open and a lot of fun. A nice touch is that most holes have multiple tees for a variety of skill levels.
The woods shots call for a variety of controlled throwing; everything from hyzer/anhyzer/S-shots/etc.... Not a lot of 'big arm holes, but more of big arm 'control' throws. Gives you a nice variety.
Cons: I originally listed the lack of teepads as a con here. Since that first review, they have indeed added cement tees. The tees however are shorter than your standard sized teepad, but if you don't need a lot of run up it won't matter...and doesn't take alot of adjustment if you do. The new addition raises the score for me.
Other Thoughts: Overall it's a good course, pricey but a nice visit.
I will say that if you live in the area get yourself the $30 annual pass, and find yourself out here playing more...to me this is one of the local courses that is certainly worth the cost of the annual pass. Since the cement tees, and the annual pass, it has become one of my local favorites.
