Pros: Shorter course, good for beginners who don't throw very far (i.e., doesn't require a bomb off the tee to have a chance at a deuce). While mostly in the woods, there's a decent mix of lightly and heavily wooded throws with a few open-field throws to mix it up.

Signage is excellent, though if you play the shorter tees you'll need to trek back to the long ones to see the hole map.

Good course to learn to finesse your mids and get your lines right.
Cons: As others have said, it's a tight course on a narrow strip of land, so if there are any crowds at all at the park you'll need to contend with people crossing your lines. Holes near the road can be a problem if your accuracy is lacking.

While only a couple of the holes list water as "in play," it's a concern on quite a few holes where if you get it wrong either long or right you can easily splash down. Bring your stable/overstable discs.
Other Thoughts: Given how squeezed the course is, the way you play it should depends on the crowd level. If empty, play how you want. If crowded, consider playing the red tees so you have no over-the-parking-lot throws, and consider enforcing an anhyzer mando on yourself on #8 so you stay to the left of the playground.

Be careful searching for lost discs on any of the holes near the pond - thorns/briars hurt, the footing can be uneven, and pine straw covering can be slippery.

Pros: As everyone has said it is a pretty good use of the space available. There are a nice variety of shots to be made. Not too much interaction between fairways.
Cons: Signage needs to be improved. There are a few shots that go over teh parking lot or near where kids play and I think the 2 water holes are brutal for beginners and some lefties. It only has one "nonsense hole" (i.e. we had to make a hole and this is what we came up with) but 1 is really too many.
Other Thoughts: When the park is not crowded it is a fun course to play. For more advanced players it is a great putter and mid range course.
