Pros: - Lots of elevation changes. This course is built on the side of a hill, and at least half of the holes feature minor to massive elevation differences.
- The dense forest means that accuracy is at a premium. I get the feeling that playing this course repeatedly would be a great way to boost your accuracy.
- Very uncrowded. This park seems surprisingly under-utilized.
Cons: - Wayward discs are extremely difficult to recover. We had a disc shank about 75 feet across the fairway, and it took us nearly 45 minutes to bushwhack our way across a ravine and find the disc even though one of us saw exactly where it landed.
- Spotters are needed to avoid losing discs on drives.
- Maintenance is lacking. There are two poles, and one of the baskets was broken and hanging loose. Some hole signs still exist, but many are in poor shape.
Other Thoughts: I would describe Mingus Park as a rough gem. It is fun and challenging to play, although the terrain makes things difficult or just flat-out annoying sometimes. With new tee signs and working baskets on all the holes, this could develop into a respectable course.

Pros: It has a nice feel walking it. This is a secluded feeling with not very many people playing there. Really precise shots are requied as the poorly thrown ones will take a while to find. It takes a nice walk through nature.
Cons: Has two tone poles instead of baskets.

Can be kinda hard to find being in the middle of town and off the highway.

Disc eater.
Other Thoughts: Its a really fun walk to check out. The better course compared to Winsor. The feeling there will bring you to nature.
