No Real Challenge

Pros: It is a fun short course. Great for putting practice since your distance drivers won't get a workout here. The elevation changes near the holes led me to shoot uphill on some holes and downhill on others with elevation between me and the pin varying by several feet in some places.
Cons: Elavation changes are the only real obstacle on this course. A few trees in play on a few holes but for the most part they are not a factor.
There is good signage but i don't think it is terribly accurate. Hole 2 has a sign that says it is 354 ft. I hammered my Banshee with ease and I can't get more than 250 to 300 ft out of that if I throw my arm out. That said the signs do accurately show the layout, even if the distance is off.
Other Thoughts: I would say this is a fantastic course for beginners to learn on since it can teach them to throw straight and they don't need much distance.
This course is close to my apartment and I will definitely play it again. My wife would proabably like this course a lot and playing it will probably help her game a lot.
I would like to see some more space used, my friend and I noticed two spots where there could be some nice holes added and if they put holes that went completely around the water feature near hole 2 that could make it a great course.
As it stands, this course is certainly worth playing if you are nearby but there is a lot of potential for improvement.

Pros: - Course is set in a hilly portion of a park with some gnarly rough. A bike path winds around some of the holes, so there might be some waiting needed here and there. Not too bad though.
- Pretty good hole variety here, mostly due to the large hill that this plays on and around. There are some steep upshots, including one with a sloping green and a large mound in the way of a RHBH hyzer. A steep downhill shot to end the round, and a blind dowhnill anny on #7, a good mix of more or less open elevation changes.
- Other notable holes include a blind shot on #2, which can be a safe hyzer or an over-the-water straight shot. Really tricky since the tee sign says 354', don't trust it!! I threw my disc and must have sailed waaaaaay past it, it is definitely not 354'. Check it out before throwing! #6 is tricky, too, a short little downhill with some extremely nasty rough to swallow errant shots.
- Great signage (minus #2's hole length), and good baskets. Tee pads were soft gravel that gave a lot, but were serviceable.
Cons: - Biggest con here is the short length of the course. No holes over 300' (again, don't believe #2), and many play very very short. The uphill shots need a little mustard, but it's still a pitch-n-putt course throughout. Many holes are very brainless, too, more practice than actual discing.
Other Thoughts: - For a little 9-holer, this one provides some cool shots and some decent challenge in spots. Fun downhill elevation changes, and some rough uphill changes that can be tough. A few tricky holes due to blind baskets or punishing rough; not too shabby at all. A good place to learn the ins and outs of the games, though there are very few obstacles to contend with.
