Pros: 18 holes of disc golf. I actually thought the home made buckets caught pretty well. From that stand point, I was happy to get away from the chastity belted targets we had played all day the day before.
Tees using the walk way give you hard surface to throw from.
Playing paved walking path as o.b. can add to challenge of course. Couple of holes have path near to basket and will force precise landings.
Decent tee signs on most holes. Some attached to trees.
That's probably about it for pure pros. This is not a bad course, but....
Cons: Tees are tough to find in a number of places. We made up our own for at least four holes (some may have simply been under water). We did find the tee for #1; unlike two previous reviews; but it was simply a 2' X 3' slab of rubber on the ground. Other tees were, in some cases, very worn and dilapidated rubber, the walking path, or natural.
Repetitive length of holes. Largely short holes; though we played some longer shots on holes we made up due to not finding tees. Decent shot selection; but, the course plays around a walking path, a softball diamond, near roads, etc. We had to skip one hole due to folks in picnic table areas and had to walk up fairway and ask if we could play right next to a couple of other persons. Two of us were in the road at different times on the course; not the walking path, but the road. Potential for trouble on both of these accounts.
Back tracking to some tee areas.
I realize this is a very wet year; and not the course's fault; but most of the course is under water as of end of July, 2010. Ankle deep water disc retrieval on a number of holes.
Other Thoughts: This course was interesting from the stand point of being a very multi cultural setting. Lots of other park's users the day we were there; and of all ages and ethnic groups.
I believe this is a Brian Cummings course and these baskets may have been elsewhere prior to this (I will update if I find any further info).
In my book, it's always nice to play a course with interesting targets and some history; but, I won't be coming back to this one anytime soon.
