Needs some love and attention
0 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: The course itself is a winner. 14 over the Rec Center is a fun shot. If you find my driver in the weeds to the left of the fairway call me. By the way, that isn't poison ivy, get in there.
Cons: The layout, pin info plaques, and hole numbers on the baskets are all screwed up. This course is in serious need of remarking by the city and could really benefit from directional plaques at the bottom of the baskets to direct players to the next tee.
Other Thoughts: It is entirely possible to shoot at the wrong pin on #2, you may never find #3 tee, and when driving on holes 4, 5, 7 you will be throwing at baskets with the wrong numbers on them. I loved the feel of the course but it needs some attention by the Parks department.

Two pin positions per hole.
Out-of-bounds looming on every hole. Multiple opportunities to negatively interact with: parking lots, roads, walking paths, dog park, swift-running stream, railroad tracks, tennis courts, softball field, running track, building, junkyard.
The course suffers from a common malady - it is squeezed into the patchy amount of available open spaces of a multi-purpose park, thereby offering many chances to yell "fore", and/or get your insurance card out.
Other than uphill number-12, or major downhill number-14, the course is extremely flat. Long basket-2 sits on a small hill, but requires a throw over teepad-3. Most holes, other than the few near the railroad tracks, are quite open - straight-on, or swinging wide right-to-left, will work on most holes.
About 2/3rds of the tees are 6'x6' concrete, with the walking path doubling as a teepad the other 1/3rd. Teesigns will list the distances to the two pin positions, but doesn't indicate in which the basket is presently located.
Navigation tips: the map shows where the tees, not the baskets, are located. After number-1, a sign directs you down road/across bridge. Numbers 2-5 play in the direction you just headed, while 6-8 return you towards basket-1. Numbers 9-11 play in a counter-clockwise direction around the ball field, while numbers 12-15 play clockwise around the building. Number-16 plays across the track, and numbers 17-18 parallel the creek/walking path. Tee-4 is between the railroad tracks and the midpoint of the dog park.
Try to play when there are not many other park users present.

Be careful! Be VERY very careful!
*Two basket positions for each hole.
*There's a dedicated local club.
*The hilly scenery in the surrounding area.
-There are numerous safety issues, on every hole but #14; be especially careful on holes 2-8. (Look at the hole pictures in the Photos section.) DO NOT attempt to play the course without getting the extensive list of OBs from the Rec Center. The course is right in the midst of a busy park, so always keep an eye out for other park users. Apparently, the local players and the other park users have learned how to co-exist together, though. (There's much more that could be said here, but I'd rather not in this venue.)
It's very hard to navigate, and the map is basically useless because it's very poorly drawn. Even with the map I couldn't even find holes 2-8 until they were shown to me. There's a very long walk from basket 1 to holes tee 2 for the 2-8 loop, then another long walk back to tee 9. There are also long walks to tee 7, tee 8, and a very long walk from basket 13 to tee 14.
The course is mostly flat with elevation changes on only a few holes. (Hole 14 is a great exception, though.)
Believe it or not, my negative comments here are not meant to hurt anyone's feelings, but they're only offered as suggestions about areas that can be improved.
Course Level: White (most suited for Intermediate players rated 875-925.)
• My favorite hole- 14. It's the most scenic, has a 35 ft drop, with some pine trees, and begs for an ace run. It's marred by the Rec Center building on the right, and a junk yard on the left across the fence, though.
SPECIAL NOTE: I rated this course Below Average, but I recognize that building this course took lots of vision, time, money, and work. Since I don't want to downplay these efforts, I'm not posting my usual review notes in the Files section. If you want to read more specifics about my review, please send me an email to <playdiscgolf(at)gmail.com> and I'll send you a file with more details.
