OK park course
Pros: The course plays through a large flat park, with nice grassy fairways through a mix of small and mature trees. There isn't really much underbrush here to speak of. There are a couple holes with some really minor elevation, but not enough to really add any challenge. There was a good mix of long and short holes here, including a couple where you could really air it out and throw a longer drive.
The signs and pads were ok, and the other park amenities were nice with available water and bathrooms in the park. There is also a concert pavilion, and we got to finish our round to some live music which was a fun way to spend a summer evening.
Cons: The course has a lot of conflicts with the rest of the park. There are lots of holes that play close to roads, paths, gazebos, and playgrounds, and the park is heavily used by non-disc golfers who don't seem to know to stay off the fairways. On a nice day there are a ton of safety issues here.
The baskets were in pretty bad shape, they were many different kinds of baskets, and most were rusty. The course has some flow issues, and is hard to follow in spots, though it's a little better after the redesign. The course was pretty muddy even though there hadn't been much rain, it just didn't seem to drain very well.
The holes get a little boring, as there just aren't enough trees to force specific lines. It's a pretty open park style course, and that means that you can just throw a hyzer with either hand on most of the holes.
Other Thoughts: This is an ok park course, in a nice park with other things to do. If you're passing through, it's worth a quick play, though if you can hook up with a local you will have a better time rather than having to search for the next tee in several places.
Beginners will find this course approachable, with many shorter holes and not much chance of losing discs, though the safety issues are magnified for throwers with less control. More experienced players won't find a lot of different challenges here, Deming is a nicer and more challenging place to play.
