Pros: This course is well maintained. It is a city park that is normally not too busy. Typical hole length is 125-200' which make is great as a 2 disc course.
Cons: No long holes.
Other Thoughts: We use this course as a putting warm up before playing another course locally. You can play this whole course with your putter if you can drive with it. The possibility of acing a hole is high as many are under 150'/

change of pace
Pros: Great to work on your short game. Lots of ace chances, Quick, "no worries" rounds. Great place to bring new players.
Cons: Crappy, mudslide T-boxes.
Other Thoughts: So Reed's not a championship course, who cares? It's a fun, easy alternative to our other course (Tuscawilla park, Awesome) with no chance of losing a disc. A good mix of holes, some easy, some ridiculous, but it will give you an opportunity to use every shot in your arsenal. forehand, backhand, hyzerbomb, pinball prayer, tree love a plenty. Have a fun round at the canal.

Summer Vacation Discin`
Pros: The course itself is very easy to navigate and the tee signs a very clear as to where the baskets are. The fairways on the back nine holes are grass, which is fairly often mowed and well groomed. The hole assortment is amazing. You have shots that are wide open (1, 15, and 16 for example), tight and wooded like 2 and 3, and very small narrow alleys like 4. The design is great for people learning to play or just as a vacation round, which is what I used it for. The coordinates bring you right to the front of the park so it is easy to find. Probably the best part for families is there are several pavilions with benches and a nice playground for children.
Cons: The entire course is played next to/on a walking path through the park. So teeing off you have to be very careful not to peg a small child or elderly jogger. The tee boxes are made of loose fill dirt and could defiantly use some work (holes where plant foot goes for example). If you're not careful you can skip holes six and seven as there is no signage for the next tee at the end of 5. They are tucked away in between 11 and 12 and 4 and 5.
Other Thoughts: When you enter the park make sure to take a right hand turn and go until you can't drive anymore. Hole 1 tee box is right there on your left. Very nice park that is mostly shaded and easily accessible. If you play in the summer bring extra water as I went through almost two liters in one round.

18 holes stuffed into a very small park
Pros: Little chance of losing a disc. Good short-range practice workout if you live close. Has brand new cement tee pads.
The course has drawn many local beginners to the sport.
Cons: 18 holes crammed into the space that should only have 9. Many holes crowd each other and the park path dangerously.
Some holes have random "pinball fairways".
There's no continuity in terms of skill level from hole to hole. Some are blue level, some white, and quite a few red or green.
Other Thoughts: More is not necessarily better. This property could have been used for a decent nine hole course with multiple tee pads, instead of forcing in 18.
p.s. I did get to meet some folks at the park that day and explain disc golf. While demonstrating I had back to back "aces" on hole 15 with stand and throw putter shots. (140 ft.)
Remember: Don't be a dirty disc golfer. If you pack it in, pack it out!

Pros: No real threat of loosing a disc, great for working on aim, pleasent atmosphere, good course for beginners or anyone who wants to work on their short game
Cons: no real long distance holes, can get through the course in under 30min if alone.
Other Thoughts: Tons of trees on the first 9 holes
