Pros: The course is set off from the rest of the park you will not have to worry with other park patrons getting in the way. Plenty of parking close to the course with are nice sign and map showing the layout of the holes. There are enough trash cans around and the course was very clean. The park was very quiet the day I played and I was able to observe a variety of wild life while playing. Holes 10 thru 27 are located in the woods winding around the trees and rolling terrain. There are multiple tees at each hole and a variety of shots are required. A few holes even had multiple pin positions. The baskets are of an older type I am not familiar with but seemed to catch my disc well. Each hole has a home made but laminated sign with distances and direction of the basket. This was very helpful as many of the baskets are not visible from the tee pad. If you are one who likes to throw the disc far with nothing to run into play the first nine. While there are no holes over 350 feet, the place is wide open nothing says you can't pick any basket and throw to it.
Cons: We have to start with the tee pads, the tees are dirt marked with square tiles painted red or blue. I don't personally mind dirt pads but these could use a little maintance as many were uneven. Many of the signs are placed someplace between the red and blue pads, with the faded tiles it was difficult to find the pad at times. The field for the first nine is in need of mowing, and there is a lot of underbrush in the woods so watch your disc carefully or you may have difficulty finding it.
Other Thoughts: The first nine holes are just baskets in a field. Good place for beginners but I skipped them after one and went out into the woods and had a great time. There is nothing longer than 350 feet here, however there are plenty trees to provide challenge in the woods. Some of the lines are pretty tight but there is a line to every basket, you just have to hit it. All is all this is a fun course to play if you are in the area try it out. With a little maintance this course could rate much higher.

Better Not Bring Yo Kids!
Pros: It's just alot of fun. Any local disc golfer appreciate it as, "Well, it's the closest." And thats about all they say about it. Personally, i like it because it's long, and it's kind of a really good workout. All the walking will definately encourage a little sweat. I do enjoy this course, but it's not one i would travel to play.
Cons: Very little thought to disc flight. With that said, it's not the worst planned course. But far from the best. It's just Average... thats it. No WOW factor, except, "WOW are we done yet!" I mean, come on... 27 HOLES!!!!
If you do bring your kids or go with someone elses kids, you will probably not finish the full course, and will get really anal remarks from the youth about why the crap are ya'll still doing this. Tears will probably be included with the comments...
Other Thoughts: Drink an energy drink, bring some comfotable shoes, and tell momma you will be late for dinner. Don't be discouraged though. Just think of it like running a marathon, sucks during, but very glad and relieved after finished.

Pros: Cool piece of land. The front 9 play very open with mowed fairways through waist high grass/weeds.The back 18 play much tougher through the woods. Nice view of the river from a few tees. A few cool holes. Course has a lot of potential.
Cons: Only a few cool holes out of the 27 played. Lost discs in high grass on front 9. Some fairways seemed to cross other fairways in woods. Horrible footing on teepads in the woods.Some were at 45 degree angles! Something needs to be worked out on this course. The potential is there for a good layout. I think they should focus on 18 holes and not 27. Some basket placements seemed wack! The mixed baskets were in pretty bad shape as well.
Other Thoughts: Needs some TLC!
