 Pretty boring and open

Pros: The course plays through a large mostly flat park with a couple minor elevation changes, and two small ponds. The ponds come into play on the back nine for a little more risk and challenge, and the front nine plays up and down a small rise a couple times. There are some small trees that will grow up into nice obstacles eventually.

There is a good variety of hole lengths, with some ace runs and some holes where you can rip a longer drive. The back nine is more interesting and less played, so you can go straight to the better part of the course and have it more to yourself (I'm not really sure why, but I saw several groups of locals leave after the front nine). The baskets are in good shape and catch well. There are nice tee signs, and other than the transition from 9 to 10 there is good flow with no other navigation issues. The concrete pads are level and in good shape, though they seemed a little small.
Cons: The course is wide open and quite boring. Distance and wind are the only real obstacles on most holes, and there aren't that many long holes. The ponds could have been used more, there are plenty of other shots that could use the water to make the course more interesting, and there are some more wooded areas that would bring a little more balance if the course incorporated them.

The walk from 9 to 10 is not at all obvious, 10 is way down by the far end of the parking lot. This might be part of the reason so much of the traffic on the course seems to only play the front 9. The course was pretty crowded with large groups of young kids all throwing at the same time and not waiting for people to clear the hole before teeing off, seems like it could be a frustrating place to play on nice days.
Other Thoughts: This is a boring course with not enough challenge for experienced player and nothing to teach newer players to throw more than one shot. Unless you can't get to another course, this one is pretty boring and not worth the trip. The back nine is a little more interesting and less played, but it's still not anything all that interesting.

Pros: This course has a few longer holes. It also has a bunch of short holes to test out mid range discs. This is a great course to practice with new discs or to introduce someone to the game.

The area is gorgeous. The water is a good addition to the course, even if it only really comes into play on one hole. The water is easy to avoid or throw over on the other 3.
Cons: The water isn't that threatening. Almost all of the holes are very easy. Only 2-3 holes over 400 feet. Elevation isn't really used much. The ponds smell pretty bad, even if you don't get too close to them. I don't think I'm ever going to go back.

Pros: This course will make you feel like a disc golf rock star. Front 9 are short and wide open, while back 9 are medium length and all basically wide open as well. Two or three holes have big water hazards on them which some might find a little thrilling although the water is easily avoidable with little skill.
Cons: This course provides little challenge to anyone over a beginners ability.
Other Thoughts: A good place to bring your girlfriend to play, or anyone new to the sport. They won't get frustrated at overly tough holes and you can practice your approaches and putts. Win win situation.
