A tail of two courses
Pros: As the other reviews have mentioned, this course is really two totally different courses in one.
Front 9: Baskets (DGA) and Concrete Tees are in good shape. Not a bad warm up.
Lawn is well maintained, nice park.
Some decent distance shots.
Most Baskets have some obstacles that making the shots interesting.
The topography has mild elevation change (±10') that for this Northerner are laughable, I give the designer credit for making the most of what they have.
Final Note: While I was there on 8/21, an Eagle Scout and friends was installing 6 new wood benches on various Tees throughout the course. I don't know if the scout reads this, but the bench quality and installation was well done.
Cons: Front 9:
Faaaalat. There is less than 1 foot of change in elevation on the front 9.
The distances between Tee and Basket are morbidly short.
Low areas are prone to flooding.
Tees 15 and 17 share the same concrete.huh?
Tee 17 only has 125 feet and shoots threw an opening in the trees with high weeds 150 feet from the tee. Do NOT launch a disc blindly threw trees... Easy to loose discs.
Tee 18 has high weeds along left side. Easy disc eater.
Other Thoughts: There are 3 alpha (A, B, C) tees. They are not logically within the "flow" of the other back 9 tees. The pads are gravel. I never bother to play them. They are an oddity.
The course is alright. I wouldn't bother driving out of my way for this course, but when in the area, it's alright.

two very different 9 hole courses.
Pros: The front nine are great for starting out or playing with the family. It is an open city park with some mature trees but not a lot of weeds and no water.
Cons: The back nine is a totally different course. It seems more like an abandoned lot than a disc golf course.
Other Thoughts: This is the closest course to my house and I continue to play the front nine with my family but we call it quits after nine because none of us seem to have fun on the back nine.

Pros: It's a clean park and well laid out for the room they have available. Most holes are only 175' - 250' but the baskets are either behind large trees or tucked under small low ones. Good course to practice up shots on. Layout seems to favor lefty's (slightly) so it's a good place to practice accurate annies.
Now with 12 more holes to compliment the short front nine this course has become a legitamate disc golf course. With the extremely easy/short front nine it still doesn't warrant a good ratin IMO.
Cons: Worst con is the T-pads. They have just enough concrete to claim concrete pads. Other than that the only real negative is 9 holes and no length. It's like the little brother of a good course. It shows promise if it would only grow up lol.
Other Thoughts: The added holes are in a relatively open field that partially floods each spring. it has some decent holes but nothing terribly special.
