 Quiet and empty course

Pros: Not busy at all, plenty of shade and a beginner friendly course. With dual tee pads it is an 18 hole course. Less then a mile from Wagner Park so if you come you can play both courses.
Cons: Dual tee pads have you somewhat confused. Easy course with too much reputition.

Pros: Many of the holes are fairly long with a decent amount of trees for an in-city 9 holer.
Great place to take first timers yet still air out drives if you're more experienced.
The map at hole 1 gives you some idea of where your going and explains the dual pads.
With the dual pads there are a number of interesting and challenging shots.
Distances and hole numbers on most of the tee pads.
Cons: Tee pads aren't in the best of shape, at least one has been partially destroyed.
Baskets don't catch too well.
Other than the smattering of trees there is little that makes the course layout interesting.
Lack of elevation or true doglegs.
Dual tees are very confusing, and some of the tee pads are left unmarked.
Other Thoughts: Playing Starr-Jaycee for the first time with a couple of newer players was definitely an enjoyable experience, though we had to first find the tee sign for hole 1 to catch our bearings. For an in-city 9 hole course it was certainly a passable layout, I was able to stretch out my longer drives while my friends didn't get too frustrated navigating the course. Also with Wagner near by you can get a play 18 holes expediently.

 Basic course in a crowded park

Pros: Quick rounds- Mostly shorter holes
Playing with the other set of pads, the course varies straight shots, lefts and rights all on the same elevation.
Only real obstacles are trees with no brush and all low grass.
Cons: Rubber pads are falling apart.
On weekends this place is crowded with non-disc golfers and they don't seem to notice they are doing some activity in the middle of a hole.
Layout a bit confusing as many of the tee pads are not labeled.
Other Thoughts: Definitely bring a map or take a picture of the map at the course.
Good for a quick round or beginners.

Pros: Wooded city park with no rough or real hazards and beginner friendly design although tough enough in cases to challenge anyone.
Some rubber tee pads.
Course map.
Cons: Tee signs non existent, some rubber pads have hole #'s on them. Must find course map before you begin (in front of middle of parking lot) or you will get completely lost trying to navigate it.
Other Thoughts: Helps to know where Tee #1 is and the map. If you don't stumble on it first, hard to figure out what to do.

Pros: Good distance for a small area course. Even challenge for both right and left handed players. Offers several holes over 350 feet. Quick commute for locals. Fast round times.
Cons: Because this course is situated in a fairly open park, there lacks defined lines on the course. Almost every hole allows for multiple lines and creates lack of challenge. Dual tees are confusing as there are no tee signs. Lack of defined fairways, elevation, and hazards make this course fairly boring.
Other Thoughts: Needs tee signs. Decent play.

Pros:
Hole Variety/Course Layout--
Moderate amount of trees that can alter your shot but for the most part it pretty open, alot of holes allow maximum distance throws off the tee. A few tee to pin placements make for interesting throws.
Cons:
Course Navigation--
Map at hole #1 and decent signs but still hard to navigate because the duel tee pads makes it very confusing your first time. Having to share baskets down grades the course in my opinion (It would be better if it was just a simple 9).
Other Thoughts:
Course Maintenance--
Its straight, not super clean but not super dirty either. The tee pads are all rubber, but they work pretty well.

Course Atmosphere--
Typical Detroit suburban city park. The mini train tracks that run through the park are pretty cool.

Pros: flat as a pancake, no water unless there's a downpour, typically uninhabited.
Cons: not challanging, fairly open and if the Jaycee's are there, they'll kick you off the course.
Other Thoughts: good course for beginners or to break in a new disc. If your close and need to play, it's a decent course.
