Not a bad place to play
Pros: Concrete tees for most. Found that there were three without two tees. I play off the pros, so that didn't bother me any. Great landscape, was well maintained when I played. This place had elevation (not mountains mind you) which was a surprise for me in Florida. No palms thus no chance of me losing a disk.
Cons: This place had no water or true hazards. There were various holes in which I had to back track or walk a distance in order to reach next tee. There were no marker indicating the location of the next tee. Lucky for me, I went with my brother who had played the course before.
Other Thoughts: A lot of walking for 18 holes due to back tracking, but was enjoyable. It was a nice park setting. Not fact there was a cute playground to entertain the little ones while I played.
Great Course needs a few
Pros: Great course really well maintained. Tee pads are nice and wide and uniform in size
Cons: Needs hole maps at tee markers and alternate pin placements would put this course over the top and next tee markers would be helpful
Other Thoughts: The course is dry... no water hazards to be a well rounded course it would need one or two holes to play with a water hazard. But still one of the better courses I have played in Fl and will def be playing this again and again and again....

Addenda to earlier reviews
Pros: -Concrete tees with colored stripe and hole number on the back portion of the tee.
-As previously noted, no water to deal with.
-Park is beautiful and well maintained, no palmettos or other predatory plant life.
-Some elevation change
Cons: -Layout of the front 9 is not entirely intuitive, and there are no facility maps. The back 9 is pretty straight forward.
-Other than the low canopy, there are not many more obstacles. There are a few manmade obstacles that may be in play on a couple of holes.
Other Thoughts: I wanted to do this as an addendum to the other reviews rather than a standalone. A few things I found to be aware of:
(1) The first tee is through the pavillion from the parking area. The second tee is on the fence corner on the opposite side of the shuffleboard court from the first tee, so you do have to backtrack.
(2) Hole number six doubles back across the open field, so the restrooms and pavillion will be on your left.
(3) Holes #9, #13, and #16 are missing the concrete tee pads for the red tees. There are square dirt areas instead.
(4) This course is an ego-booster. Distances from red are VERY short, for the most part. Even the par 4s are reachable in three.

Love this course!
Pros: Not busy.
No chance of losing a disc.
Cons: No water or major obstacles...if you like that.
Other Thoughts: Great course in the middle of Florida. The Spanish moss covers the tall, old guardian trees and there are alot of "grip it and rip it" holes. There are also several holes where you hit the line or you hit a tree or two. I will be here more often!

Pros: Beautiful course for all skill levels. This course can be played with a small variety of discs and shots but has many paths to improve whatever you want to work on. No water hazards to loose your discs.
The park is maintained very well and has two bathrooms with cold water fountains, on the outside.
They have handicaps at 11:00am every Sunday...
Cons: Hole two was difficult to find; you have to backtrack around the fence by hole 10. The other holes can be found within a minute or two, but I had a local help me out.
The park is out in the boonies but that can also be a pro. (no crime?) Make sure you bring munchies ( I don't know where the closest store is)...
Other Thoughts: I will definitely be returning to this course. It's a fun course where I can try a few things without loosing my discs.

Pros: The course is set in a small town park with alot of very old/large trees. Park was empty when I was there which was cool. Tons of spanish moss hanging from trees. I thought there was a good mix of short, long, and intermediate holes. Had 2 par 4's that were close to 600 feet long.
Cons: Only shade is provided by trees and it gets hot in Florida. While fun I thought the course lacked any real imagination. I only used a couple different discs and a couple types of shots.
Other Thoughts: Park has a real small town feel and seemed to be very well maintained.

nice city park
Pros: Nice traditional city park course meandering through live oaks with lots of Spanish moss. No schule whatsoever. Decent elevation change for Florida- course designers have made good use of available obstacles/terrain. 2 legit par 4 holes, no tweener holes. Excellent place for a beginner to learn the game or for an advanced player to hone their shots.
Other Thoughts: Signage was a little off but that was due to recent addition of concrete pads according to a local. I would expect this to have been rectified by now. Low ceilings galore.

Worth the trip
Pros: Attractive park with old growth trees. Virtually no schule. Easy to navigate. Two sets of tees. Friendly to both beginners and advanced players. Course flows well with other park users.
The course gives lots of opportunities to air shots out and offers many roller opportunities to those that enjoy taking the low route.
There is a bit to think about with the sidewalk OB coming into play on many shots and low ceilings have been incorporated as much as possible to add more technical challenge to a mostly open property.
The course gets a good turnout for local handicaps and is very visible to the adjacent main road, giving the sport lots of exposure in the area. It's only ten minutes from the new Belle Park course and the Sun King Disc Sports store.
Cons: The course could be more technically challenging. It tends to favor big arms a bit too much.
There's not a lot of shade.
