Leaves something to be desired

Pros: Good for beginners. Some elevation change. It would be extremely hard to lose a disc here. The fact that I had to think for 15 minutes before coming up with ANY pros is telling.
Cons: Worst teepads ever. They are deeply-cracked dirt pits that are mud holes when wet. No signage except for a stick with a number on it on 4 of the 9 holes. Poor use of the land and the creek that surrounds it. Wide open with very few trees...which im sure could present a challenge if there were strong winds. This is the second worse DG course I have ever played (Springfield park holds the #1 spot). 9 hole courses always carry less interest than full 18 hole courses. No practice basket. Tough to find tees. You could easily twist an ankle (or even break an ankle) on the ridiculous mud pits they call tees. The holes are all crammed into a small space, so smashing your disc into another person is a serious possibility.
Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend skipping this course...even if it is very close to you. If you absolutely have to play this course, be aware of a few things. To start, the first "teepad" is right by the big wooden sign at the very front by the parking lot and the street. I mention this BC I hear that many people play the wrong tees/baskets, etc. I could understand with the horrible signage how this could be confusing. The tees then go back and forth before wrapping around the back end of the park and coming up by the fence back towards the parking lot. There are woods, a creek, and a lot of brush surrounding the park which would make for interesting challenges if designed properly...so its a shame they aren't used at all. Be careful to not grip lock your drive or throw too far to the right on #1 or it will be in traffic on the road.
Your best move is to just skip this course.

Playing the Field…Maybe
Pros: This course has a couple of elevation shots. The baskets do have the hole numbers on them by tape on the pole. If you are looking for a course with simple holes and no obstacles, this might be one of them.
Cons: Ok so no water, tee signs, trashcans, restrooms, an information board, and very few trees. Every shot is a clear open straight shot. Finding the tee pads is basically looking for a worn spots on the ground. Once you figure out #1 runs along the road, #2is back up the hill close to the parking lot, and #5 is out in the middle of this fenced in field, you should be good to go. The next hole's tee is about where you would guess them to be.
Other Thoughts: There was not a fun factor for me. The drive to get here is not worth the effort. I think it is great that they built a course though. I love trying new courses out no matter how they are. We should be thankful for all the courses we have in the area. This one was just too simple for my taste, but if the local people can't travel too far, they at least have a place to play.
