Pros: The course is in a "No Dogs Allowed" park, which really cuts down on the potential innocent targets. There is a decent mix of short and long holes, most of which are within view of the previous basket. The few kids and adults using the park were good about clearing the fairways when I asked.
Cons: No tee pads, signs or even worn areas in the grass. The park is well maintained, which makes it hard to see where other players have teed off. the baskets are also very unforgiving (fewer chains than a Discatcher, with shallower baskets). A few of the lines require you to drive straight down a paved bike/walking path, which would have been sketchy on a busy day.
Other Thoughts: Playing alone was difficult because of the blind drives on 1 and 10. I was afraid I was going to hit someone on the walking path, so I had to play extra conservatively. Then again, I had no guide other than the board at the first "tee" so I was just teeing off from the previous hole's basket.

Pros: The course has a great setting in a nice little park. There was some nice elevation changes on a few holes. This course is never busy.
Cons: This course lacks signs, luckily I met up with some locals who showed me the proper layout. There are no signs and no tee pads which means that unless you have someone to show you, it's impossible to know where to start each hole from. A few fairways have walking paths right through them. The first basket is also the 9th basket. Not a huge problem since not many people disc golf in PG. But if it were busier, this could become an issue.

One other con about this course is that is doesn't require many skill shots, the course is mostly open, and super long.
Other Thoughts: Overall I enjoyed the course, it's longer than I'm used to so it was fun to break out the driver a lot. This course has an unfinished feel to it. The City of Prince George is supposed to install some tee markers but this has not yet happened.
