Pros:
Aesthetic-- plays through a large multi-use park but plays mostly along the edges and through one larger field. non-discers could be an issue here so throw carefully.

Teepads and signs-- concrete pads, nicely sized and in good repair. the signage is basic but effective giving you a basic line to follow BUT I do question some of the lengths being listed as shorter than they actually are.

Baskets--ChainStars. All in good repair. hard to see in some of the woody holes and could really use some increased visibility. Some holes are just straight blind (the huge turnover on #11).

Upkeep-- I was at this course very early in the morning and the park (on-site) caretaker greeted me and gave me a course map which was much better than the one provided on here. I posted a pic of it. There was nary a bit of garbage here and the grass was all nicely cut.
Cons:
Routing-- this course is easy in places and really really difficult to follow in some other places. #1 is all by itself with a long walk to #2. there are other places that aren't so obvious as well #11-#12.

challenge/risk v reward-- none really to speak of. there really isn't a chance of losing a disc here (with the exception of #11) and the challenge factor is mostly encompassed by the thick foliage on the woody holes.

Basket placement-- some of the basket placements here is really really bad. I hate 90 degree turns out of the woods. they really just don't make good sense. you will always over throw these and have to throw back to the basket...

Variety-- either it's wide wide open or it's wide wide shut... not much in the way of variety here.
Other Thoughts:
I wasn't overly blown away by this course. it was fun, but nothing to write home about.

Pros:
-This is a nice little course. Well maintained with extra necessities like concrete tees and good signs.

-Coming here I expected a lame little course just to throw in on our way back from Hickory Hills, but it ended up being better than I thought. I especially liked the variety with the woods on the later part of the course. Also moderate to minor elevation is a factor on a few holes.
Cons:
-The first holes are very bland and can get you bored with the course at the beginning. It would be nice if the course was mixed from hole to hole better, rather than having the first half wide open and the second half super technical.

-There's no map or signs to direct you to the next hole. Also a couple holes can be confusing on which basket to throw to.
Other Thoughts:
-Overall CCS is a fun course. It's definitely not the main attraction, but it's a good side show for the other courses in the area, and it's good for the people who live around it to have.

Pros: -the addition of cement pads was very nice
-the wooded holes are all a lot of fun and require some precision
-a few fun, blind shots, so make sure you check out basket locations before throwing or you can lose a disc pretty easily
-good layout, but a very average course overall
Cons: -very dry/dusty
-lots of mosquitos
-even with the tee signs this course can still be difficult to follow, so make sure you have enough time to walk around and find your way (this really only comes into play in the middle of the course, the beginning/end are pretty easy to follow)
-because of the simplistic signs and some baskets being close together its more than likely you'll throw at the wrong basket once or twice
Other Thoughts: the tee signs are very simplistic wooden 4x4 posts. other than being able to spot the next tee from a distance, they don't do very much to help you when you're actually on the tee.

not too much in the way of elevation, but regardless this course will make you think about each shot
