Great Learning Course
Pros: -You've got the option to throw several different types of shots on each hole.
-Although in a park, the park is not too crowded.
-Great for beginners.
-Great use of available space.
-Decent amount of distance on some of the holes.
-The big magnolia tree on holes #2 and #10 is the only place you could possibly lose a disc.
Cons: -Sand tees collect water when it rains.
-Road noise and children screaming at the park can be distracting.
-You throw directly at a street on holes #7 and #16.
-Only 9 pins, kind of repetitive
-Baskets are wobbly which may affect your putt although it has yet to happen to me.
Other Thoughts: Overall I think this course is great considering how close to home it is. Definitely not a wishlist course, but if you've got someone you're trying to introduce to the sport then this is a great place to take them. The FireCracker in Ft. Inn is also close, and while more challenging overall it lacks the distance of Simpsonville. This is where I learned the sport, so it will always have a place in my heart reserved for it no matter how many other courses I play.

Good Park Course
Pros: --Great course for a casual round
--Good use of 9 baskets for 18 holes (the second set of tees for each hole are put in different spots and it really does make the holes look different a second time around)
--Surprisingly challenging on some holes (it is easily par-able, and birdies are possible on all holes, but I did not expect this course to offer some of the challenges it did)
Cons: --The park is busy during baseball games and traffic noises are a constant distraction on most holes
--The course gets boring quickly after you play the first round
--The tees were just sand/dirt and were often uneven
--Pedestrians could be a problem on many holes since 6 holes play either over or along sidewalks
--The course flow was confusing the first time
Other Thoughts: This is a good course for what it is. It gets boring fast, but it's a decent course for a casual round.

Home Practice Course
Pros: Great Practice Course!
Very open so it allows you to practice hyzers, anhyzers, rollers etc.
Good for a quick round.
Some tree's over baskets....instead of being just out in the open
Cons: Not for advanced players.
No Tee Signs
Only 9 Baskets....18 tee's...repetitive
Single Chained Baskets
Other Thoughts: Though an easy course, it will help you practice!
Great for beginners or just anyone looking to go have some quick fun.

nice city park
Pros: It uses dual tees marked #1-18 (really just the same as having a short and a long tee) to make an 18 hole layout for 9 baskets. Uses empty park space mostly, turning nothing into something. A few longer shots. Clean, mowed. Tees all marked by post. Good for new players, just enough shots for an experienced player to play.
Cons: Limited variety as there are not a lot of trees but for #1, #9. You can throw a hyzer around most any obstacle and park it. Expect spit-throughs on the yellow baskets.
