Pros: Well there were a few fun shots, Most from safari tees, because navigation was impossible.
Friendly setting, not much if any traffic around the course, even though the grounds were full of people.
Cons: Most tee signs are missing.
Baskets are in terrible condition, one basket is literally resting 1 inch above the ground. Quite a few others were tilting terribly.
Other Thoughts: Set up on in a busy sports complex next to a school, but not too many people around the course. With a little love this course could be very fun and a good introduction to disc golf for the public.

Pros: Very nice city park. As you turn into the park area is nicely maintained with quite a few people using the tennis courts, baseball diamonds, etc. Of what tee pad signs there were, the signage was nice. Huge potential for a nice amateur course if upgraded.
Cons: This course was a huge disappointment. A rating of 1.5 is too high. Expectations are high when you see how nice everything else is, yet when you get onto the course, it is a much different story. First off, navigation was deplorable because where was none. At least of what I seen while wondering around looking for hole 1. The only tip on where to start is on the course description and it says hole 1 starts at the top of the hill. It would be nice if there was a course layout board or some indicator where hole 1 is located. 2nd, some of the baskets are either damaged or missing. I even saw a couple kids pull a basket out of the ground when I was on hole 9. It is too bad cause the baskets are not bad ones, its just like someone put the course in and left.
Other Thoughts: Such a great looking park for such a poorly executed course. Some concrete pads, better signage, possibly a bulletin board, and a couple of baskets and this course could really be a go to course when driving pass the area.

Pros: Checking out the lifeguards at the pool was pretty alright. The elevation and turf conditions were very nice.
Cons: Junky baskets, 2 missing tee signs, 1 missing basket.
Other Thoughts: The pars that were marked were marked pretty high. A 278 wide-open downhill par 4 doesn't make much sense. Throw some gravel or RR ties down or something to at least mark the tees. There's not even trampled grass making it easy to guess where the tees should be.

Pros: 9 hole course that is easy to get to and park. Hole one is on top of the hill. Large trees add to the challenge of driving off the tee. Varied length of holes so birdies are available here. Elevation helps to mix things up a bit.
Cons: This course is worn. The teesigns are missing on several holes. The baskets are bent out of shape on some and in general are poorly crafted homemade designs. Basket 9 is missing. This is a course that is just thrown into a park for the sake of it being there. Poor course design and flow.
Other Thoughts: Left this course after my round and was glad I was done with it. This course is just beat up and not quiet sure what can be done to rescue it. Lots of other space left in the park to have had made it 18, but after playing this, I am glad they did not do that.
