Pros: - Small parking area. Two pavilions with multiple grills.
- Baseball fields on both sides along with a kids' play area
- Two porto-potties, one on each side of the park
- Map on site is very handy and accurate
- Two tees per hole. Note that the majority of the long tees were only marked by a post in the ground. Some of those posts had a hand painted map on them.
- Natural tees are mostly in good condition
- Tee signs help some to keep you on track
- Signs to next tee located on Tee Signs and also on a few baskets
- Baskets are in decent shape. A few are a bit rusty like on #7.
- Love the low hanging basket on #7 :)
- For a small park it's surprising to find that there are 5 holes out of 10 that are over 300' and due to the amount of trees and obstacles you will need a mixture of shots to get to the pin. Note that even though some of the holes are nearly 400' you will not be bombing here that much as the majority of the course is tight and technical.
- It is a pretty park that is well mowed with some beautiful trees. The best way to describe this small park is 'relaxing'. It is out of the way and very quiet when it's not busy.
- Small amount of elevation really adds to this park. #2 throws over a small hill while #4 is along a heavily wooded side of a hill. #10 throws out over a low lying area and leads back up to the basket (watch the pavilion on the right and a swamp on the left!)
- Trash cans located at the parking lot and pavilions
Cons: - Basket labels would add a lot to the course even with the accurate map on site. Sometimes it's tough to tell if the basket you are looking at from the tee is really your basket or not when you haven't played the course before.
- Simple kick boards added to the holes that currently have nothing on them would also add a lot to the course
- Signs at #4, #5, #7 & #9 need to be updated. They all read as one hole lower. I'm guessing that the course was adjusted to add in a 10th hole but the signs were never finished. This caused a bit of confusion on our part.
- Hole #6 Long Tee was so overgrown it couldn't be used
- Ugly swampy mess to the left of #10's fairway which is probably the reason that this place is completely overrun with mosquitoes.
- Can't tell if there is vandalism, I think the signs were just trashed by weather. But many of the sign posts were just empty with no sign in them.
Other Thoughts: - Previous reviewers listed this course as not being busy at all, so I could just be unlucky. I was there trying to play when there were two HUGE parties going on at the park. This made it completely impossible to play and we had to leave. I wont list this as a con but just note that if this course has some people there, it makes playing disc golf impossible. There were so many children running around the fairways and baskets playing catch that it became too dangerous and risky to stay.
- The flow can be a bit confusing but I do understand that they were trying to make the holes as long as possible and use as much of the land as they could. A few things to note is that #1 long crossed over #6's fairway and so does the longs for #3 & #10. The flow does work pretty good at keeping most of the tees a decent distance from the previous baskets so you don't have people throwing at you if it's crowded. Another place that can be a bit confusing is the walk from #5 to #6 and #8 to #9.
- The course is semi challenging overall. There were some very tight spots that would be very easy to make a mistake and cost you a few strokes. For example, Hole #1 from the long tee starts across the road with a narrow opening to get through and a parking lot to the left.
- This is not a Must go to course, but it is worth checking out if you are close by and as long as you take a map with you. You'll need it due to the mismarked holes so you don't have to run back to Hole #1 to view the map posted there. There is some potential here; have the signs updated, hit it up when it's not as busy and the swamp is dried up and the SWARM of mosquitoes have died off…

Pros:
Map makes it simple enough to navigate.
Cons:
Crossing fairways, tees near fairways, tees near baskets.. Some hole/tee/map mis-match numbering. Could not find long tee for hole, umm, number 5-1/2, I guess. Not sure how often the shelters and picnic tables are used, but their usage certainly would interfere with holes 2-4 and 9. Parking lot and circular road come into play on 1 and 5-8.
Other Thoughts:
Course plays within, and, at times, across, a partially wood ridge and clearing circumscribed by the circular access road of a small public park. Dodging the trunks of large hardwoods is the challenge you'll face initially, and hitting specific windows and lines are your primary task the second half of the course. Many holes are flat, while a few of a elevation change at various points.

Metal posts, sans signs, at natural white tees, which are marked by small board in ground. Wooden posts, with basic hole information, at natural blue tees, also marked by small, in-ground boards

Makes pretty good use of the limited space, elevation changes, and large scattered hardwoods to force shot-shaping, but if you notice a filled parking lot and much activity about the shelters, don't even bother stopping your car.
