Pros: Fun walk around the park.
Makes you play smart. A lot of holes you have to lay-up your approach shot because the hole is nestled in the entrance to the woods.
Other holes, because of the wind, you need an accurate shot into the fairway instead of going for it and ending up in the water.
Cons: I played 4 rounds in 2 days, as part of the Sizzler. Recreational player, and with the wind and hole location, it was not very Recreational Player friendly.
One hole you tee through the woods, does not require a skill shot, just luck
Other Thoughts: I may come and play it again next year, when my skill level is better. Although some holes are easy pitch and putt for easy pars and some birdies opportunities, the strong winds made them very long rounds

 Decent, but nothing special

Pros: 18 holes, nice secluded park. Course & park was empty when we played. Clean, well maintained.
Cons: Mostly in the open, challenges are just holes next to the nearby waterway. Have to pay to get into the park.
Other Thoughts: An OK course, and judging from the number of courses in the surrounding area, there's not much to choose from.

The park is nice, but the holes are mostly out in the open (from what I recall) and the biggest challenges are baskets placed right on the edge of the river running near most of the holes on the front nine.

I am a bit biased towards technical holes, at least a few on a course. Not much of that here.

Pros: Beautiful Florida course. This track is quite challenging, yet still accessible for new players. A few nice risk-reward opportunities and several beautiful holes. Hole 3 is a moderately-long par 3 with water right and woods left and one of the most beautiful/best holes in all of disc golf.

Course definitely challenges your wind game.

Butterfly world on site is a nice visit for the family.
Cons: The course is a bit overly-crush biased.
Other Thoughts: Disagree with the other review of "tight" fairways. It's mostly wide-open.

Don't be a dirty discer. Leave the course cleaner than you found it!
