Drove My Wraith Into The Levy, And The Levy Wasn’t Dry
4 Helpful / 0 Not
Quite flat. Single, natural tee locations; single basket positions. Backtrack from basket-9 to tee-10.
Walking paths, playing fields, and recreational areas are quite near a majority of the holes.
While navigation wasn't overly difficult, the course I played December 2012 was a bit different than the October 2007 map. The first twelve holes seem to be as described by the map, then:
- new hole-13 is a short right-turner, basket near the levy, tee in the opening leading to the housing area
- new hole-14 is old hole-13; new hole-15 is old hole-14
- new hole-16 is most of old hole-15, but is shorter, and does NOT cross the water
- new hole-17 has a tee near the restroom, and is a short toss across the water, to old basket-16 (or so it appears to be)
- new hole-18 is old hole-18, so essentially old hole-17 has been eliminated
Course is set upon an odd-shaped (backward-Z) piece of land in a public park, bordered by roads, housing areas, and Navy property (high fence paralleling the right-side of fairway-10 - farewell to your disc if it goes over). The land is perfectly flat, but does contain some large, scattered pockets of trees, and some water hazards.
Roughly half the holes offer some mid-fairway and/or near-basket scattered trees to avoid, about one-third of the holes are open in their (near) entirety, allowing your disc plenty of leeway, and the few remaining holes have multiple trees defining a throwing path throughout their duration. The majority of the holes simply call for straight shots - only a handful of holes require any type of left/right from the tee. Holes range from ~200' to ~500', with an average of ~300'.
Favourite hole: #5, a steady left turner, just under 300'. Trees on the left prevent the disc from going too high, or left too early, while the levy along the right-side awaits any disc that doesn't turn enough.
Worth a play if passing nearby, but not worth a major detour.

Pros: - Beautiful park with lots of shade.
- Variety of holes for different skills
- Nice park & playground on site for family
- Good use of water on several holes
Cons: - Poor identification of tee's
- No on-site map
- Often difficult to locate the next hole
- One hole is a little close to children playing
Other Thoughts: With little work, this could be a very good course! If you go, make sure to print out and take the map listed under the files/links tab above. Without it or someone who knows the course, you will likely spend half your time trying to find the next tee.
