Nice concrete tees and good tee signs. Elevation changes on each hole. Bathroom on site.
Like most courses squeezed into the unused bits of a small park with a variety of sports fields, this course suffers from lots of potential to negatively interact with non-players. Picnic tables and/or walking paths are quite close to more than half the holes - #6 is particularly hazardous as the basket/table is blind from the tee, a downhill left-turner. Bit of a walk from basket #2 to tee #3, basket #9 to tee #1 - make sure you have a map beforehand.
Other Thoughts:
Four holes are up-slope, not too steeply, four are down-slope, with #9 being practically straight down (be careful walking down the hill), and one is across an open valley to a wooded slope. Five holes require left turns, three require right turns, no turns being very sharp, and #9, as mentioned before, STRAIGHT down. Woods come into play nearly the entire length of #2 and the last half of #8, #1 is wide-open, the remainder have some trees to avoid. Your mid-ranges should get a lot of work, as several holes are short.

Ignoring the potential of conflict with non-players, I'd rate this course about 2.5, but with picnic tables/walking paths so close to over half the holes, the score has to be lowered.

Pros: Only disc course in the general area so its what you will have to play if your near there.
Cons: Only two wooded holes and most are wide open with a couple of trees around. All holes are pretty short (too short) however a coulple of shots are pretty technical. Some navigation issues partly due to my lack of acknowledgement of the somewhat acceptable signs. Too much distance between holes 2 and three.
Other Thoughts: Hole number 9 does stick out in my mind and is pretty unique in its nature. I will probably remember this hole over the years just because its so unique. Its only around 180 feet in length but it drops down about 40 feet in height, its like dropping it down a cliff over a tiny creek. Pretty cool
