Pros: This is a park dedicated solely to the disc golf course. Only 100 yard walk to the front door of Georgio's Pizza and a quick 30 second drive to more than a half dozen other places to eat.

Pulling up the road to the suburb, less than a quarter mile on the right is a parking lot suitable for 5-8 cars (depending on how they're parked) with an immediate entrance to a pavilion with 3 picnic tables and 2 trash cans.

Each hole has accurate tee signs (although some of the distances may have been inflated a bit) and natural tee pads.

The flow of the course from tee pad to basket, and from basket to the next tee pad is great, as a first timer to the course I had no trouble getting around or finding baskets nestled into corners.

The mix of woods and open holes is great, I didn't feel like I was going to get bored playing, although I don't know how many times I'd really like to play it in a row.
Cons: Hole 5 has 2 crossing fairways:
Hole 2 fairway/Hole 5 tee pad & fairway
Hole 6/Hole 5 fairways
The crossing fairways didn't entirely matter during the round I played as there wasn't anyone else on the course, but if there is a busy day at the course it could get interesting to say the least.

There aren't any benches at any of the tee pads, which I guess isn't too bad being <2800ft in length, although it is nice to be able to take a break during a string of casual rounds.

No trash cans except at the pavilion. I saw litter all over the place (more than my trash baggie could carry).
Other Thoughts: This course is pretty under rated for the area. I haven't heard anything good about it, but figured since I already played a few rounds at nearby Punderson DGC, I may as well take a few minutes and see what the gripe is about. Other than the few cons I listed, I feel like this course is great.

Located between a shopping plaza and a suburban community on maybe 12 acres of land, this course serves its purpose of exposing the masses to our great sport while being easy enough to keep beginners interested and upper level players entertained.
