Pros: You can easily play a round in half an hour or so.
Cons: The pars are ridiculously high (I shot nine under in my first round). There was really only one hole where you can really unleash your power without over-driving the basket. There were a few paths that looked like they should be followed in the wooded area that did not lead to the next hole. It was hard to tell (as a first timer at the course) exactly where to go after each hole as a number of tee boxes are visible but there are no signs pointing the direction of the next in the order. The tee boxes were in poor condition as well. On one hole you almost have to shoot over/around the basket for the first hole to get to the current hole's basket.
Other Thoughts: This should certainly be a par three course. The signs at the boxes need to be updated to provide accurate information.

Pros: Cool layout that makes good use of the land given. Good mix of heavily and lightly-wooded shots. Elevation changes along the course are also nicely implemented.

The holes are so close together and short, you can play this course in well under an hour.

Great place to get newbies familiar with disc golfing.
Cons: Missing markers for tee pads

The course map at hole 4's tee sign points you in the completely wrong direction to get to 5. Myself and my buddy spent 20 minutes wandering through the forest before we found the path to 5.

Two baskets marked hole #7 (the righteous 7 and the basket for 8 was marked as 7)

Pars are GROSSLY overestimated. Hole 4 is a short uphill shot (less than 250 at best), and I holed out in 2. An eagle on a hole less than 300' feet??? I shot -8 for the round, for 9 holes, and it was the first time i've played there! Come on!?!?!

The other, much larger half of the park, is just being wasted.
Other Thoughts: Another 9 holes, competent par determinations and adequate markings for tees/pins/next pin location could make this a respectable course.

As it stands, this place is an atrocity for any but the newest players.
