Nine should have stayed nine
Pros: This could be a good local course. It is all pretty much in one field area but there are plenty of trees that will force different types of shots. You'll have to make some very straight throws. You'll also have to approach pins from some odd angles.
If you knew the course well, I could see playing it all the time. There is some good disc golf there and I'm guessing that it is rarely busy. Seems like a great place to work on your game and get to know new discs.
There is even a nice water carry when the water level is not too high. In this case "too high" means, touching the bottom of the basket pole.
Cons: I get the idea from some of the previous reviews, and the info on the site, that this was formerly a nine-hole layout. I'm guessing that the old layout was much better than the current eighteen. There isn't enough space here for a full eighteen. Currently most fairways are in the path of at least one tee. There are two tees that throw directly over one another. I wouldn't want to play here if there was anyone else on the course.
To make matters worse, there are tees with no signs and signs with no tees. It's confusing to say the least. Add the fact that the signs are pretty vague as to where you are targeting and the fact that from any tee you can see at least six baskets, and you have a mess.
I don't hesitate to say the navigation here is the worst that I have ever seen on a course. I certainly played to the wrong basket on a few occasions. And due to the signs/holes issues, I missed a few holes entirely.
Other Thoughts: Limona is a probably a decent course to play regularly. But for visitors, I wouldn't recommend it at all. There are too many courses in the Tampa area to spend time figuring out which tee goes with each basket here.
Some of his could be fixed up with some work, but I think this a nine that should have stayed a nine. There just isn't the space.

Worth a stop if you're in the east Tampa area
Pros: Attractive park in nice old Brandon neighborhood. Good use of a small piece of land.
Multiple tees and basket locations give the course a good amount of variety for return visits.
Great course for beginners and for as a good place for advanced players to practice.
No schule and little chance of losing discs.
Course pro John E McCray is very welcoming to new players and has quickly grown a good group of new regular local players.
Cons: A couple of the fairways crowd a bit on each other.
Other Thoughts: Don't be a dirty discer. Leave the course cleaner than you found it!
