Pros: The park it self is pretty nice and well maintained. Parking is no problem at all.
When you get to hole 1 there is a huge bulletin board with loads of information and even score cards!! The course has a unique layout making the 18 hole course actually 2 courses. As everyone here has said and the course description has stated there are 2 of everything, no need for me to get more into that. I liked the challenge both the short and long tees/baskets gave. I played almost every combo of tees and baskets and each time was different (3 out of 4). The elevation change is great. All of those shots I keep shanking upward actually helped me on a couple holes. A couple holes have a creek that comes into play, especially for the blue baskets. Those holes are 11 and 14 both very enjoyable. A few holes go through fields but the pins are located around or in some trees making it more challenging and interesting than an all open field hole.
For the actual course it self, every tee has a sign for both short and long pads. Most courses don't bother with that, I liked it here. The few tee pads that were not under snow or ice were tapered at the back to allow for different approaches, pretty cool idea. I really enjoyed the park and it seemed like a good amount of effort was put into this course.
Cons: It took a bit of wandering around to find a couple holes the first time around but the course flows nicely and I was able to locate them pretty quickly. The locals litter a lot, there were beer cans and boxes all over the place, especially for a park that has a no alcohol policy. The bathrooms were locked for winter, no biggie, nothing they could do about that anyway. Some of the trashcans were overflowing....now i'm just trying to find things to bitch about...haha
Other Thoughts: Warwick park is a great disc golf course with a great variety of shots and challenges. I enjoy playing disc golf where ever I go and drove 2 hours to get here. With that said I drove a bit to play at Tyler State park in PA and felt that drive was much more worth it. I'm not sure why this park is so highly rated, it's a great park but in my opinion just great.
I played it in the snow/ice, and a few holes were very difficult to get to because of the huge sheets of ice around them, kinda fun actually. If I miss my puts my disc would slide forever. Maybe this place is more amazing in the spring, I played it in the winter. One more thing, someone left a lost disc near the bulletin board for the owner to find. Thats pretty cool, the people in most places wouldn't be so friendly.

not as good as I hpped
Pros: Played this course on the way home from the Vibram Open. I was not as impressed as I had hoped to be. The grass was very tall, there were many long walks that backtracked through fairways. Lots of pins near other tees or pins. Very confusing to find your way around. And all around I wasn't that impressed with the actual course. I played the long layout. It had some neat holes, but none that really stood out as amazing holes to me. MAple Hill was about 20 times better than this course. I had hoped this would make my top 10 list with Moraine, Maple Hill and a bunch of other great courses, but it just didn't do it for me.
Cons: Lots of backtracking.
Other Thoughts: IT was ok. I would never want to play a tournament here as some tees/pins seemed like they could be very dangerous with golfers on other holes. You really just need a big arm on this course from the longs. NOt much accuracy required to score well.
