Pros: Technical shots are required on most holes. Garbage cans are scattered around the park along with benches by every tee box. After the front 9 you walk by the restroom and back toward the parking lot if you need anything from your car.
Cons: ~75% of the tee boxes have a small post with an arrow and the footage posted, but the arrow usually doesn't point to the basket, I probably spent a total of 30 minutes running down the fairways looking for the basket being my first time out there, the small printed out course map posted doesn't do it justice. The course layout starts out decent and is easy to follow, but it gets kind of confusing on the back 9. I couldn't find the 18th tee box so I ended up playing from 9 to the 18th basket, looking at the map online is much better resolution so I think I know where it is, so print it out if it's your first time. Overall the layout of the course is pretty bad, the lanes are usually tight and lightly to heavily protected and it is very easy to wind up in the fairway of a neighboring hole. If there were other people playing I could see this being a huge issue, especially when some baskets are within 50' from later or previous holes.
Other Thoughts: When I played most of the holes were in very short positions so birdies can be abundant on most of the front 9, even with a few not so great shots par is still pretty easy to save if you have finesse shots in your bag. I do really like the fact that this course forces you to throw different shots on most holes. It is a great course to practice different throws and make use of mid range discs.

Pros: This course winds through the woods in a nice park. Most fairways are clearly defined, with trees on either side. But the trees are not super dense, and there are opportunities to recover from an errant throw. There's some elevation change and a variety of holes. There are big concrete tees which are in great shape. Baskets also in good shape. The park seemed pretty well maintained in general. The park wasn't busy, but I was playing on a Monday morning
Cons: This course badly needs some next tee signs. Finding thenext hole is tricky, even with a map. The tees have nice looking signs, but they're not very helpful. The included "maps" don't give any information about the hole, and definitely don't show alternate pin positions (most holes when I played). There are quite a few places where someone could be hit by a bad throw -- fairways that cross or go right by another tee. There are some mandos to ameliorate this some, but the mando signs are tiny and easily missed (and not on the tee signs). While the hole design is not bad, you aren't going to be amazed by any of the holes either.
Other Thoughts: This is a solid neighborhood course. If you live in the area, you're happy to have a course like this. And if you're travelling though, it is a fun place to stop. But it's not a destination course that will feel worth it if you travel a long way to play it.
