Pros: The course plays through a small pretty park. The grass is nicely mowed and the park seemed generally well taken care of. The baskets are in pretty good shape, and the tees have markers with the hole number. Despite lots of picnic areas throughout the park and a walking path, the course didn't seem to conflict with other park uses.
Cons: The golf here is very easy and not very interesting. The majority of the shots are short and straight, and many of them don't bring the nice mature trees throughout the park into play. There aren't really any different lines forced throughout the course, if you can throw basic straight and hyzer shots you're in good shape. The tees are terrible, the gravel is rutted out and the frames now serve to hold water and muck. Because the gravel has been kicked out of many of the tees, the numbered stones stick up right in the middle of the tees, luckily you don't really need a runup here.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will enjoy the straightforward shots and lack of punishment for errant shots, though new players won't learn to shape different lines by playing here. More experienced players won't find much challenge here, it's short enough for a putter round but doesn't even provide a good challenge for your short game.

Pros: Trapezoidal tees with crusher run; done well and surrounded by wooden frame. A block of stone sits flat in the middle of each, and has hole number on it.
No distance listed; but tees are flush with ground and very well done for this type of tee.
Pretty little park.
Hole #7 is @ 300 ft. Hole #8 a little more than 300 ft. (this from rough notes; see below)
Good for beginners/families/ace runs.
We played at 7 a.m. to stretch our legs after driving for an hour plus. Nice stop in for this sort of thing and to make some charges at buckets for the ace.
Start to finish done quite quickly.
Cons: So, I just went to check the real numbers and #7 comes in at 245 ft. (though the topography is slightly uphill at the finish); and #8 is listed at 299 ft. So, goes to show you how playing holes straight, and under 200 ft., makes these two seem like long holes; by the time you get to them!
In other words, course is short.
There is not much interesting disc terrain either. Park is pretty; but golf very basic.
Other Thoughts: Probably won't be back unless it's the perfect leg stretch point again. Even then, there are better options nearby.
I did enjoy this early morning, dew on the ground, course to yourself, round though.

Pros: Course is in good shape, baskets are very nice.

Convenient location- with park right there it's nice if you are having a bbq or something like that. In fact most of the people on the course were families having a bbq throwing a few discs around.

Very cute park

Not a terrible place to learn the ropes.
Cons: BORING!!! Straight up dull... not very fun... get my drift?

This course is just a series of short straight shots with very few obstacles (the biggest obstacle is 4 or 5 tall flowers near a flagpole on the first hole... although I have to admit I did accidentally cut off one of the heads with my driver... which was cool...)

Busy, super busy... I did go on labor day, so maybe on other days it is less busy...
Other Thoughts: Not a bad course to teach someone on... HOWEVER I would just go to Erin Go Braugh in Thompson... That course is not terribly difficult at all, in fact fairly easy, and is much prettier and much better even...
