Pros: -The course is easy to find once you get off the main road.
-Friendly people
-Well kept
Cons: -Very deep pond on hole 4, 5, 6. BE CAREFUL!
-Car is sometimes parked very close to hole 5 basket.
-Very easy course.
-Not easy to navigate initially.
Other Thoughts: This course isn't bad but it's not good either. Just like Wirth Par, it isn't worth the time to go out here if your looking for a challenge. It's well kept and the people are nice making it an enjoyable experience.

Pros: This is a short 9 hole course in a city park, with small elevation changes and one small water hazard that comes into play on two holes.

The park is clean, and seems to be in a good part of town. The area it's in is strictly disc golf, so there's a low chance of hitting pedestrians.

The teepads are concrete, fairly nice and level. The baskets are in good condition.

There are two holes, 4 and 7, which have trees to add some moderate difficulty. The rest are fairly wide open.

All things considered, this is a nice beginner course that provides some light difficulty with trees and water on a few holes. Nice for a quick half hour round.
Cons: The layout is slightly confusing, since it's in a long, skinny plot of land and crosses back on itself a couple times.

Much of the course is right next to a road; you often need to wait for cars to clear before driving.

The signage is only wooden posts with hole number, and some holes are missing the posts.

There are no bathrooms (though it's so short this shouldn't be an issue). There are only one or two trash cans.

The water hazard is slimy and filled with algae.

All of the holes are straight, with no dog legs. Hole 2 sticks out like a sore thumb, being over 100 feet longer than the next longest on the course.
Other Thoughts: It looks like the course layout is being updated. The teepad for hole 3 has been moved closer, making the hole around 100 feet. I believe the plan is to remove hole 3 and make hole 4 longer.

Pros: -Really straight forward course.
-Easy for beginners, not totally lame for intermediate players.
-Variety of shots, mostly open and through some woods.
-Only 1 water hazard troublesome for 2 holes. Full of diseased water.
-The police will tell you when the park closes and when there is dangerous weather coming.
-Good to play through twice.
Cons: -Only 1 water hazard troublesome for 2 holes. Full of diseased water.
-Kind of short.
-The police will tell you when the park closes.
-Quebec avenue is right along holes 2, 6, 7, and 9. Avoid hitting cars. But fear not, there is never much traffic.
-Usually lots of people.
Other Thoughts: -Even though there is a fenced house with a "beware of dogs" sign, the dogs are quite friendly.
-Quebec Avenue makes for an interesting out of bounds marker.

 Fun, quick game!

Pros: I have a soft spot for Sunnyside. It's a small course, but it makes for a nice, quick game when you don't have all day to be out playing. Has some decent technical holes with obstacles. You can play this course on your lunch break!
Cons: My favorite hole, #3, was destroyed by the city recently. I aced this hole twice when it was in it's full glory. Now all the trees are gone, and it's just a short, boring drive.
Other Thoughts: I like that this course has a practice basket off to the side of hole #1. Surprisingly, this course can get backed up occasionally, so it's a good way to practice putting while waiting your turn.

Pros: Nice concrete tees and good baskets. some elevation and water.
Cons: Short. Some holes are a bit tight to each other. Water is disgusting.
Other Thoughts: Not a bad little local 9 hole, for the space the designer had he did the best he could. Not really worth a special trip, but if you are nearby it's worth a stop for a quick round, or a good warm-up before heading to Plymouth Creek.

Pros: 1) Good use of limited space. This course is 3 city blocks long and 1 block wide, but still manages to have a fair amount of variety in the fairways.

2) Good warm-up for Plymouth Creek Or Basset Creek.
Cons: 1) The water hazard is just a drainage ditch filled with nasty, stagnant water.

2) They cut down half of the trees on hole 3, turning the former signature hole into an easy little ace run.
Other Thoughts: With the space the designers had to work with they did a fairly good job, but this course really isn't worth going out of the way to play.

 Kind Of A Ghetto Feel !

Pros: Sunnyside Park is a long narrow park. The course plays five one way and then four holes back crossing through a wooded area and over a nasty ditch/creek along the way. Although the houses that border the park look fairly well kept, the park just had this grungy feel to it. I guess I'm basing most of this on the fact that every teepad had been spraypainted with ugly gang grafitti crap. Also everything was saturated after recent heavy, heavy rains.
The course itself plays to the beginner/Rec level with a couple of interesting holes.
I personally liked # 1 where you were throwing to the basket which is just barely hidden down in the woods.

To bad they lost the # 3 mando trees. Everyone seems a little bummed out about that.
Cons: Grafitti teepads.
Minimal challenge.
Ugly swampy ditch water to lose discs in.
I don't see the street as a OB problem here as the traffic would be visible coming and going. Duh-Don't throw into the traffic!
Other Thoughts: If I lived across the street, I'd play this course all the time. If I lived any further, I'd probably find other better options around the area.

Pros: -Very easy
-Quick play through
-Nice putting practice hole.
-Never too busy
-Pretty clean
-Wide open shots
-Decent little flow
-Great place to warm up for the day or play night disc
-Hole two is a pretty awesome and challenging shot
Cons: -Lack of variety in shots needed
-When it rains hole one turns into a big lake
-The water hazard on four can be a major pain in the ass to get a disc out of, even if it is on the edge
-This course really is pretty boring
Other Thoughts: I've probably just played this course too many times, but I find it to be extremely boring and easy. Nothing has changed in at least seven years (except for sawing down mando trees).
I've played this course several times at night and it's pretty fun. Other than that, I usually only play this course if I am waiting for someone or are wanting to warm up a bit. Id say, check this little course out, for sure, but don't come from afar to see "stoner park".

 Stange but fun

Pros: Not normally busy. You wont find yourself behind large groups or infront of a group constantly throwing at your heels.
Cons: Not horribly challenging. The whole course is played in a straigt line so you don't have a lot of hooks right or left, and the road can do damage to your disc.
Other Thoughts: Will often times play this in between playing Zachary Field and Bassett Creek.
