Pros: Really nice and very well maintained course. Tee pads have a big number inlaid in them so there's never any doubt where to play, what hole we're on, etc. Baskets are in good shape. Park is mowed regularly and so there's no tall grass to lose a disc in. No water or ponds.

It's an easy and short course.
Cons: The cons are ... that's it's an easy and short course. Just six baskets. For a pro nearly every hole is an ace attempt.
Other Thoughts: This course doesn't get a lot of love but it is what it is: a fun, short, and easy course. That makes it an excellent place to introduce someone to disc golf or bring out the kiddos for a morning of disc golf. It's set in a very nice neighborhood and is in a very nice park. The holes are not long. You can play through three times for 18 holes quickly and without a lot of difficulty. Most holes are very open. You don't have to worry about throwing through the trees or losing discs.

That just adds up to a fun day on the course. And what's wrong with that?! if you're looking to get ready to win a world championship this prolly isn't your course. If you just want to throw some discs and have a nice time at a nice course where you won't have to hunt for the next basket or endure a lot of trash and graffiti or trees and water ... this is a fine course to play at.

Pros: -This place is made to take your family when they are in town. Playground for little ones, all hole par 2-3. Very straightforward shots, few trees. I have hit the baskets/chained out a few times.

-Every hole is an ace run waiting to happen.

-Low DG traffic.

-Nice Tees.

-Fast play.
Cons: -Very short- only play to learn or to throw putters.

-Lots of non-DG use (it is a playground!) My mom got hit in the neck by a Cheetah when I took family over Easter.

-Only 6 holes.

-Very windy.
Other Thoughts: Not worth the trip unless you are new to the sport.

 Do you want to play a little disc golf?

Pros: - fun
- clean
- fast play
- friendly
Cons: - risk free
- fire ants at fifth tee could be a problem
Other Thoughts: We happened to be staying nearby - nice surprise! The course is well laid out on a tiny piece of ground shared with a playground, sport fields, and a walking path. The design works. Even on a Saturday morning with baseball practice, walkers, and kids on the playground, we never felt crowded.
This is not a difficult course. If you want a great challenge you will be disappointed. If you just want to play a little disc golf and have fun, this is a fine and pleasant place to do so.
Leave the big bag of discs at home, all you need is a putter and maybe an approach disc

Pros: Very nice and well maintained park. Nice round teepads and nice DISCatcher baskets. Like the other reviews a perfect place to scratch the itch of playing, plus a great place to practice your mids and putter game. Also includes a nice park to bring the family along.
Cons: The only big con was the parking. You have to park on the street, there is no parking spaces or parking lot. Also trying to figure out where hole #1 started, it's the first round teepad next to the big Tommy and Sue Brown Park sign.
Other Thoughts: Like I said earlier perfect place to scratch the itch of playing 9 or 18 if you can't get away.

 Quality Beginner Course

Pros: The Browns disc golf course to me is quite good because it adequately fulfills the purpose that it was designed for. The course is for beginners / kids and for people locally who may not have time to play the larger & longer courses in the area. The course has DISCatcher baskets and adequate concrete tee pads. At first i was miffed by the circular tee pads but then I realized that no one should be doing a run up on a 200' hole. The beauty of this course is that it challenges players of all skill levels to use putters and mids and practice precision approaches. There are hyzer and anhyzer lines and every hole is a chance to demonstrate going for the ace without giving up the bird. Also, the course is a great place to master putting.
Cons: Parking is awkward because of parking being next to peoples house due to lack of a proper lot.

Very little opportunity to use drivers on designated holes.
Other Thoughts: Immaculately maintained in nice neighborhood.

The course circles a playground and is ideal for golfers who bring the kids. The family could be within earshot the entire round.

Pros: The course was VERY EASY to follow. (If you get lost I can't help you) The baskets are new and the tee pads a great with brass numbers in the concrete. Very easy walking and a few trees to try to make this a small challenge.
Cons: 6 holes all par 2 is well...... just putting around.
There is a playground in the middle and a walking path all around the course. They are both used so kids and wakers are all over. There is not much more to say on the Con side.
Other Thoughts: If I were going to take someone to a course and teach them DG THIS IS IT! Simple but yet far enough to make them work. Great for kids!!! Working on putting and mid-range is the name of this course. You can make it fun by making your own course! Like go form the #3 tee and play the #6 basket..... and so on. It is 6 holes so if you play each basket 3 times (TA-DA!) 18! It is good enough to scratch an itch to play but most of you who are reading this are a lot more serious about playing so..... you might look else where to launch big discs.

Pros: - concrete teepads
-DISCatcher baskets
- easy to navigate
-you can play this course in about 10 minutes so it is a quick round if you need that
- this course is great if you need to practice short approaches
- great neighborhood that gives the residents easy access for putting practice
Cons: -only 6 holes but there isnt to much they could do with that little of space
- the only other negative is that there is no parking, you have to park on the street
Other Thoughts: The course is fun that lets you work on some flick approach shots mainly. The course is well maintained and great for a quick round of golf

Pros: -concrete tees, baskets in good shape
-easy to navigate, baskets mostly in sight
-clean park, well maintained, nice neighborhood
-quick round, 6 holes in 10 minutes
-great for practice or safari golf
-great place to bring the family, also a playground
Cons: -short and open
-way too easy for most players, this one is for the families and the neighbors
-playground in the middle of the course/park could be dangerous on a windy day or if you are playing safari
-walking path in play, watch for pedestrians
Other Thoughts: This small neighborhood course is a great place to practice if you live nearby. Being only 6 easy holes limits its appeal but it does serve its purpose to the neighborhood and introduces kids and neighbors to the sport.

Try playing from one hole's tee to the next hole's basket. Or do the same playing the course backwards.

Pros: Flat and open. Easy to see baskets. Short shots for practice with enough room to do some mid range throwing. Well maintained. In a nice neighborhood.
Cons: Only 6 baskets. Kids playground smack in the middle. Would be crowded with more than two sets of players.
Other Thoughts: This is a small neighborhood family park. Seems like it's main purpose is to be a nice open space with a place for children to play. Being new to the sport, I like having it to practice on. I played twice and was the only one there.

Update 12-17-11
No mud after recent rains.
Great for a driving range. Throw from #2 basket or from the path towards the black metal fence. Wide open with lots of room. You can go for distance, watch disc flight and try out new throws. Get between basket #3 and the path along the wildflower area and throw towards the trees on the course to test your evasive maneuver throws.
