Pros: The course is always fairly clean and well taken care of. Brings elevation into play and some decent distances on each hole. Definately worth a play if you like large, scattered park trees as your primary obstacle.
Cons: Too many people. I lived in Cloud for 3 years and if you wanted to play after 4pm you would have to typically deal with a fair amount of people on the course since it is right off SCSU campus. Im not the type of player that likes to have to sit and wait at each box for the group or groups ahead of me. Also, plan to come out here and deal with groups of people bringing first timers/Still learning. Im all for everyone getting involved in the sport, just dont have the patience for a course packed with beginners and people who in general are out manned by the course. im more than happy this course is a great disc golfer breeder and tend to leave it as that. I stay away from Riverside strictly for these reasons as well as no water.
Other Thoughts: In general this is what i always pictured as a standard city park course. Large trees, benches, kids playground and grass that is kept up on. Its a great course to play but i would recommend playing it in the morning when you have a chance at being 1 of the few people on the course unless you like a party of people playing around you. Thats not really my style which is why i rated it a 3. Decent course, just nothing spectacular that you couldnt get somewhere else. There really isnt anything about this course that will take your breathe away, leaving it somewhat monotonous to me. If in the area give it a shot, but for no reason would i travel anything beyond a half hour to play it. Millstream is just down the road about 15 minutes as well as Sportsman Hill and Hidden Lake. All offer considerably more than Riverside in my opinion. If you like to pull around a cooler of beer and have a party on the course with random others, this course will definately cater to your taste on the right days.

Pros: Good course for experienced players and a true test. There is a drinking fountain and bathroom building which is nice. The course flows fairly well too.
Cons: Some of the holes (particularly #4 with the razor sharp fence) have some pretty bullshit ways to lose your disc and then spend a lot of time trying to recover it. It's not terrible, but it could be a little less annoying. Another con you walk up and down hills constantly and it can get irritating after a while.
Other Thoughts: It's a bit of a drive for most disc golfers, but overall the course is pretty good. It's not the most memorable course, but it offers a challenge for players of all levels.
