Good Beginners Course
Pros: Wide open with a couple par 4s. There are bathrooms there in case you need them. The baskets are in perfect condition and the grounds are well maintained.
Cons: Not too much challenge. No trees really to throw through it is pretty much all straight throws to the baskets. Some holes are a little close to the playground so you need some accuracy but i have never had a problem.
Other Thoughts: I started playing on this course I think it is a great course to practice on. It has two starting tees which is always nice.

Good beginner course...
Pros: Easy to find, easy to navigate. Ample parking. Bathroom access. Mostly open, with a few trees involved or easy doglegs to keep you honest. Good for beginners and/or families, nice for advanced players to work on approach and putting.
Cons: Lots of open field = lots of places for families to be in the way. I played during dinner-time, so it was empty; I can imagine that this place is packed with non-golfers at times.
Hole #4 in particular can easily lend itself to having a disc fly into traffic on a fairly busy road. Hole #6 ends at the corner of the parking lot; too close to cars for me.
Other Thoughts: The town of Liberty Corner, NJ put in this course and did a surprisingly good job with what they had. The course is just a little 9-hole town park course, but they have two sets of concrete tees for each hole and the baskets and tees are well-marked. There's no course layout handy, but you really don't need it - the course is small enough that you can easily see the next tee when you hole out.
In all honesty, any intermediate-level player or above should be birdieing these; no need to bring your distance drivers here.
I only had time for nine holes, but this is the type of course where you can just relax and have fun. Not too difficult, laid-back stuff. I'd play it again, and smile as I did.

Harry not so Hairy
Pros: 1) Nice clean park
2) Plenty of parking
3) Easy to navigate
4) Relaxing, tough to lose a disc or score a snowman
5) A couple of ace runs, a couple of tricky holes
6) Two tees per hole turns 9 into 18 holes
7) Played 100+ times and never ran into course traffic!!
Cons: 1) OK, as others have stated, this ain't "Warwick Animal to Blues" (search if you are clueless), it is pretty simple, easy golf. Only holes 7a and 7b give you a challenge (but a darn fine challenge it is!!).
2) Don't go if you want to meet up with fellow golfers, guarantee you will be playing the course alone.
3) Funky pars, just get on the trolley and play everything as a three like the big boys.
Other Thoughts: Harry Dunham was the nearest course to my workplace, so I played there pretty regularly from 2001-2006. You can easily get a few rounds in in an hour or so playing solo. I usually played a quick front 9/back 9. Most holes are EASY threes, my lows were -8 from the short and -7 from the long. Favorite holes are 7 long and 6 short (you were kicking yourself if you didn't deuce). All in all a happy, clean, peaceful course, if not overly difficult.

Perfect place to learn and pratice
Pros: Very well maintained public park, plenty of parking, Great tees and great baskets. All 9 holes have short and long tees. Some interesting shots. Its a very nice 9 hole course thats perfect to introduce a newbie, or work on your short game. The constant wind will test your skills
Cons: Park is busy, lots of families / kids, you need to be careful when you throw. The constant wind will test your skills
Other Thoughts: It is very well designed for the property, the nine holes run the outside perimiter of a large park and playground and walking path. for the most part all fairways are open for play, but the walking path does come into play on a few holes. I gave it a 4 because its the best 9 hole course in the area.

Enjoyable Local Course
Pros: Located in a very well maintained public park in Liberty Corner- one of those picturesque small towns you might see on a postcard, Harry Dunham is my favorite local 9 hole course in the Central Jersey Area. Has two tee pads at each hole and clearly marked signs with Par indicator. Hole 7 in particular is a challenge regardless of which tee pad you use, with tall grass on both sides serving as OB. Very easy to negotiate.
Cons: Probably not challenging enough for the advanced disc golfer. Many, many joggers, people walking their dogs and kids you must be mindful of when playing. Very soggy in spots after heavy rains. Would have been nice if some of the surrounding woods had been incorporated into the course.
Other Thoughts: Of the three 9 hole courses in the area, Greenwood Meadows is the best at utilizing the available land, Chimney Rock has the most potential, and Harry Dunham is the nicest overall.Really a peaceful experience playing here despite the heavy park use. People are very friendly and twice older gentlemen curiously asked me "what game I was playing" and expressed approval. As it's a 9 hole course, you can play it two or three times in a morning. Not too far from Chimney Rock & Greenwood Meadows.Worth the trip.

Good short course
Pros: Asphalt tee boxes
Two tees per hole
Well-designed, given the limitations of the park
Cons: Only nine holes
I wish they went into the woods behind #8 basket
Other Thoughts: Of the three short courses in this area, this is my favorite. It's a nice little nine-hole course if you don't have a lot of time or if you want to show a beginner what disc golf is like. While it's mostly level, mowed grass fairways, they did their best to arrange the course around the few trees to make it a little challenging, and some of the holes have some good distance from the long tees for such a small course.
EDIT: I've been playing this course more lately for a variety of reasons. If you go when it's not crowded and aren't worried about hitting joggers or kids on the playground, it's a lot of fun to play this course in a semi-safari layout. Play 1's tee to 2's basket, 3's tee to 4's basket and so on until you get to 9, which you play to 1 and then go around again (2 to 3, etc.). It makes the course a lot longer and gives you some very interesting shots. I added this layout (with rough distances taken from Google Maps) to the course and called it the "Gold" layout.
