Pros: As the title states this course is a place that you would go to work on your short game. You will want to hit your lines in order to score well. Also because the holes are short, longest hole 375, it would be a good course to introduce the game to a new player. There are just enough challenges to keep it interesting, but not frustrating at the same time for both beginners and advanced players alike.
Here is a my assessment of this course:

#1 is a straight ahead open shot. You tee off by the parking lot and the basket is in front of you by the sidewalk.
#2 Has trees to navigate around and a walking path on the right hand side
#3 Here is a good interesting hole that has trees right in front of the tee box to the left. There is also a drainage canal to the right. For RHBH throwers, I would aim down the canal and let your disc fade to the left and you will be in good shape. The basket appears to have been moved. It is currently behind a shrub to the left of the canal, and up by the road.
#4 Nice ACE Run Hole. You tee off slightly uphill. Be careful not to shank your throw to the right into the road, as I did twice! There is also the same drainage canal here right before the basket, so be careful.
#5 Straight shot, but keep it low.
#6 There is a light pole in your throwing path, RHBH, about 40 ft off of the tee box. Again keep your shot low. 3 trees protect your approach from the right side.
#7 Tunnel Vision. You must hit your line here as there is a low ceiling about 75 ft off of the tee box.(Note there is a walking path to your right on this hole so be advised)
#8 Works left to right a tad. Has trees guarding the pin, but no biggie. Also there are stone table tops to contend with.
#9 The final hole. Here is your chance to air out a drive. Be extra cautious on this hole as the parking lot is on your left and a drive that got away from you could cause you some trouble. There is a big tree protecting the pins that you must navigate around upon your approach.
Overall this is a fun course to work out any kinks in your short game. Pro players would be bored here. Beginners and advanced players looking to hone certain skills will enjoy this course.
Cons: #9's Tee sign is missing.
It would be nice to see some more trash cans. As has been stated in previous reviews this park will get super busy. I played here on a Sunday evening and it was packed. There are a couple of walking paths that come into play, as well as a parking lot, and other items that you would find in a typical setting, so be aware before you throw.
Other Thoughts: This course is a fun and quick play. Beginner friendly, and advanced players will get in quality mid range, fairway driver at the most, work here. As of my visit there were still some leaves on the ground from fall, but I didn't have trouble finding my discs. Also the drainage ditch that runs throughout the course didn't have much water in it, so getting your disc wasn't a problem. When the trees in this park get their leaves back, this course will be a lot tougher. As of my visit the trees were just starting to bud.
There is a playground, basketball court, and walking paths in this park. If you take your family with you there would be things to keep them occupied while you play.
It would be nice to see a course map in the links/file section for people from out of town that haven't been here before. However that being said, the course flows logically, as soon as you find #2- which is west of the basketball court.

Pros: Pretty well maintained but sometimes the leaves covered up the disc (It is winter). A quality 9 hole course
Cons: Pretty short, and (I heard) can get pretty busy with kids and joggers, since it surrounds a playground.
Other Thoughts: Great for a quick round, short and to the point
