Mesquite Thorns! What's not to like?
Pros: + It's a very challenging course.
+ Whole lotta elevation challenges.
Cons: -Hated not being able to see the pin from the tee on several holes.
- Don't think I lost any discs, but I'll never go to Veterans Park when it's even remotely warm, let alone HOT.
- Mesquite Thorns everywhere!
Other Thoughts: Did I mention a whole lotta up and down the hills.
pros and cons
2 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: challenging, varied terrain
Cons: Some of the baskets are not numbered, which is confusing since the holes sometimes criss-cross. Some moron(s) wrote "melk" (among other things) on most, if not all, of the signage, obscuring maps.
Other Thoughts: This would probably be a fun course if accompanying a local. Without a guide, it is an exercise in frustration.

Pros: Very challenging course
Lots of long drives
A couple of shorties to keep the course interesting
Loved the concrete tee boxes
Great elevation changes.
Cons: Most the "multiple pin locations" were missing the actual baskets.
#6 was actually marked with a number 8 on top of the basket.
Lack of navigation for the holes.
Other Thoughts: Had fun and would play again. Enjoy the challenge

Pros: It's a disc gold course. Some elevation change, some interesting holes. It looks as though a lot of work was put into this course, but a long time ago.
Cons: Terrible layout (lots of walking from basket to tee). Poorly marked. Aging baskets. Many holes with no meaningful obstacles. Quite a few holes with obstacles that are too easy to avoid. If you use ever shot in your bag on this course, you should try getting a bigger bag.
Other Thoughts: I am from Ohio and rated this course after looking at the ratings of courses in my area. Hoover Dam (Brent Hambrick), one of the national tour courses has four stars, just like Vetrans park. Lake Shore Park, Massolin, Roscoe Eqing, each at 3.5 stars, are all way way better. I was deeply disappointed as this was the only course I was able to play on this trip and the 4 star rating put my expectations way too high.
My impression is that most serious players and sport promoters in the area have moved on to other courses and left this one to the casual players.
