Pros: This course is on a flat field with very very old oak trees that dot the entire course. I love that part of this course because there is very little under growth and thick to lose your disc in but the holes are still challenging with a few giant trees in the way. The pro tees are nice and make the course more interesting by much lengthening the course and adding more trees for difficulty. The course is well maintained and kept in decent shape.
Cons: When there is a lot of rain the course gets soggy and large puddles and even water hazards can form. Bugs can be a slight problem but usually never to bad. There is a walking path and often walkers and bikes can slow down your game. normal tees are dirt and worn out and pro tees can be challenging to find.
Other Thoughts: This is one of my favorite courses and its the closest to me so I go very often.

Pros: - There is a Port-a-John next to parking lot, a covered picnic area with tables, and a playground nearby for kids who aren't disc golfing yet.
- Multiple pin placements on the majority of holes. The baskets are moved quite often so the replay value of the course is very nice.
- Multiple tee pads on every hole (red- short tees, blue- long tees).
- Lots of large oak trees that make for a very technical course (can be very frustrating for beginners!)
- Technical course design makes you use a lot of different shot types.
- The course is outlined by wooded areas, so on very windy days, the wind isn't as noticeable as other wide open courses.
- A lot of tight lines that encourage accuracy over distance.
Cons: - This course is VERY difficult to navigate if you or everyone you are with has not played it before.
- No concrete tee pads, most of the red "tee pads" are mud pits
- The tee pads are small, flat, round stones that are mostly buried in the ground. It makes it even more difficult to find the next hole's tee pad. There are thin metal poles (most without signs) that are next to every red tee pad.
- FLAT!! There is NO elevation change throughout the entire course.
- There are a few longer walks to get from the basket to the next tee pad.
- There are no permanent water hazards on the course (might be a pro for beginners). BUT, there is usually standing water on about half of the holes…bring extra shoes and socks!
- Very short course, especially from the red tees. Hole number 9 is the only hole over 400' (from red). Most advanced players will feel like this is a putt and approach course with very few opportunities to rip a long drive.
- There is a bike path that weaves through the entire course so there are times that you have to wait for people to pass by before you can throw.
Other Thoughts: - ("Directions" to red tees, from previous basket) If you are standing in the parking lot, or by the "news board" looking at the course, hole #1's tee pad is about 100' directly to the left of the open, covered shelter. Look for the green park bench and blue trashcan. The hole plays in the same direction you would walk if you came from the shelter.
- #2 is basically right behind basket #1, slightly to the right. Plays same direction as hole #1.
- #3 is down behind basket #2, slightly to the right. Plays same direction as holes 1 and 2.
- #4, take a 90 degree RIGHT turn (if you were looking @ basket 3 from it's tee) and walk down the thick tree-line. Hole plays straight down the tree line.
- #5, turn about 160 degrees back to your RIGHT and cross back over the bike path. Hole plays directly back toward the covered shelter. (longer walk)
- #6, turn about 130 degrees back to your LEFT. The hole plays toward the thick tree line. (Around the area of basket #4.) (longer walk)
- #7, is about a 130 degree turn back to your RIGHT, and the hole plays toward the back left corner of the thick tree line. (longer walk)
- #8 is about a 100 degree RIGHT turn. Hole plays down the tree line, slightly to the right, back across the bike path.
- #9 is straight behind basket #8. Look for a large tree with a green bench underneath. The hole plays back toward the playground/parking lot. Long, 400+ footer.
- #10 is about a 110 degree turn back LEFT from the basket. (If you are looking from the parking lot, #10's tee pad is directly behind the covered shelter.)
- #11 is about a 140 degree turn back LEFT. Plays in between 2 tall trees in the direction of hole #9's tee pad.
- #12 is about a 100 degree turn RIGHT. Plays straight down the tree line.
- #13 is a 90 degree RIGHT turn. Hole plays back toward parking lot. (the bike path basically serves as the fairway)
- #14 is about a 140 degree turn back LEFT. Hole plays directly away from the parking lot.
- #15 is about a 90 degree turn RIGHT. Hole plays toward the parking lot.
- #16 is directly behind basket #15. Hole plays directly away from shelter.
- #17, turn about 150 degrees back RIGHT. Hole plays toward the shelter.
- #18 is about a 70 degree turn LEFT behind basket #17. The basket is to the right of the shelter and is usually directly behind the row of trees.

I like it
Pros: Not too easy, not to tough. There are a good amount of large trees that can cause things to get difficult. Very hidden and peaceful course. I have played it many time without seeing anyone else out there.
Cons: Grass tees are bad on most holes due to flooding and just plain old lack of maintenance. This course is a breading ground for bugs. Make sure you bring your bug spray. It's also hard to navigate the course if you have never been there.
Other Thoughts: I love this course because it offers a little bit of a challenge to those who are not pros but like to get out and have fun. Being as quiet as it is you can throw multiple discs if you want.

Pros: alt pin locations, various types of shots, duel tees.
Cons: the map is not very good says hole one is by the practice basket: there is no practice basket, most tee signs are gone, hard to navigate at 1st.
Other Thoughts: DO NOT PLAY AFTER IT RAINS LOTS AND LOTS OF STANDING WATER SOME SPOTS ALMOST KNEE HIGH!

Old mature Oak Trees make this course great.

Pros: 1) Nicely spread out course on large property, so holes are not ont op of others.
2) Mature Oak trees make shot making on this course interesting. Lots of low hanging horizontal branches. than can grab your discs if you don't keep them low.
3) Multiple baskets and multiple tees make this course play differently from different spots and distance.
4) Placement of baskets behind and around trees makes optional routes to almost every hole. This is a positive because it lets all caliber and all throwing types of players play their game.
5) Definitely beginner friendly because there is literally almost nowhere to lose your disc. So what if it takes you 5 to get to the long baskets, you won't lose your discs and get frustrated.
6) Good variety in hole length. Using Back tees and back baskets course plays over 6000', but there are holes just inder 200' up to 525' I enjoy having a few to just rip on, even with obstacles.
Cons: 1) No terrain change on this course. But its obvious the key feature of this course is the Oak Trees.
2) Wet areas look like they stay wet for a long time after rain or snow melt.
3) Tee pads could use some help.
4) Tee signs are half missing from vandalism, and some fo the alternate basket locations aren't usable because of vandalism.
5) Without the appropriate signage it would have been tough to find the next holes because there is no obvious path between holes.
Other Thoughts: I got to play with the man in charge of moving baskets and it was apparent he enjoyed this course. He showed me all the alternate tees and basket locations so that if I can back I could find where I wanted to go. Thanks Mike
This course has had almost no change on it since 3 years ago when i first played it . . . tees are still rutted because the parks people won't let Mike do anything to them.
