Land Navigation with Discs
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -Good opportunity to work on your tunnel game
-A bad shot is not going to ruin the hole*
-Working with lots of elevation changes
Cons: -Course could use some landscaping, fallen trees, thorns fairly common
-Walking around lost hoping you find the next hole***
-Would need a machete to retrieve a lost disc on the forgiving holes; a time machine to get your disc back on the worst
-On at least 3 holes, a bad drive = lost disc that you ain't gettin back
Other Thoughts: *Generally, unless you can ninja your drive in a tight S-curve, you will be playing a second shot from >80ft away. And the course more or less allows for quality shots from these positions.
**The only parts of this course that are short on trees and elevation changes are the last 30' to the pin. I am ok with this, but the putting was basically an afterthought.
***OMG...I have never had so little confidence in tee-finding. I had the map, but since I played in the early evening, oblique sunlight basically left me in the dark. This is not an evening course. Take the map, take a flashlight maybe and take caution...this park doesnt want you to be here.
****After a half dozen holes or so, you are basically throwing a flat drive while trying to avoid trees and stay as straight as you can. More fun can be had elsewhere.

Pros: A challenging course with several interesting, difficult holes. The park scenery is the highlight. Even though it's located in an urban area, it doesn't seem like it when you're playing the course. It's a nice walk in the park whether you're playing disc golf or not.
Cons: The course layout is confusing, and very difficult to navigate. There are remnants of an older course in addition to the current 18-hole layout. The original course has wooden tee markers and yellow baskets; the current course has yellow and blue metal pole markers and silver baskets. Many tees are hard to find, and some tee markers don't show which hole number they're for. There is little-to-no signage, and the #1 tee is hard to find. (It's at the Belvedere Avenue cul-de-sac, rather than near the parking lot.) Even besides the lack of signage, the course is frustrating to play. Offline throws on some holes are severely punished, with thick shrubbery lining the fairways.
Other Thoughts: This course isn't for everyone. It's a good course to play if you're an experienced player, and if you know where you're going. Unfortunately, there don't seem to be any maps of the course floating around anywhere, either at the course or online.
