Pros: Great in and out of the woods course. Some of the shots are pretty easy but you have to go over water so the Par is High.
Cons: The signs are not great. Some don't point at the tee box and some are not even there.
Other Thoughts: All together a good course.

Pros: The course was well maintained and compact. You were never more than 4 or 5 minutes from a bathroom with water. The course makes good use of the woods in the park. There was plenty of room to take your time on the course as there were not a ton of people playing. There is a nice little practice pin where you park prior to play.
Cons: I hated the way they utilized the water on the course. Virtually every hole where water came into play, the pin was on an incline, that sloped 45 degrees into the water. There were multiple times where we had a disc roll in excess of 50 feet into the water. The particularly bad holes were #7 and #17. The first has a 320 or so carry to the pin over water. There is no area to lay up in, so either you chance losing your disc in water, or you take the penalty strokes. #17 is similar, but there is a 10' strip where you can lay up. Either you are over a fence into someone's yard (to the right), or you risk losing your disc into the water. There is also a waterfall near the pin, so if you play right to stay away from the water, you can still wind up in it and find your way into the lake.
Other Thoughts: I enjoyed my play on the course, but I felt that the layout left something to be desired. The wooded holes were nice, but a few felt as though "there's a spot here for the pin, let's put it here". The water holes were poor for the reasons stated above. However, the amenities were nice, particularly having my kids in tow, I didn't have to worry about a long trek to the bathroom and I could let them go to the bathroom while still maintaining sight lines to the bathrooms (I could let them go by themselves).

If you are a new player, I would recommend staying away from this course until you get better. For the intermediate players and up, this would be a good course.

Pros: Challenging short game. Mostly wooded. Great for practicing a right-handed fade as most holes 5 holes are slight dog-leg right. Nice area with nice people
Cons: 9 holes and short. A large pond that comes into play on the last three holes.
