A solid, unexceptional course
Pros: * The park is a nice space for disc golf, mostly flat (except a couple of dirt mounds) with moderately spaced trees.
*The length brings approach shots into play for all players.
* Good variety of holes: medium/long, left/right, open/tight
* Lots of opportunities for rollers
Cons: * Can be hard to navigate. Definitely ask for the map at the entrance if it's your first time. Basket 1 and tees 5 and 9 were especially hard to find.
* Many of the fairways are constrained by one thing or another: park road, fence, culvert, boundary road
Other Thoughts: This is a perfectly solid course in a nice park. With the drought, the grass is brown and there's no water anywhere (not sure if there is during the winter). It's also unexceptional - there's nothing very good or very bad about the course.

Wide Open And Long Enough For The Big Arms!
Pros: Art Mooney is a large, mostly flat, sprawling county park. The park has lots of scattered mature trees which provide most of the obstacles for the course.
I was lucky to hook up with a Pro player who was checking out the course for a future tournament event. Together, we managed to navigate through the course (Almost).
The course has nice large concrete tee pads. The baskets are older DGA models.
The course is mostly long. The length is the major challenge here although there are a couple of holes requiring accuracy off the pad. Because of the flatness and the trees, this is a great roller course.
# 3 or maybe 4 tees off a large mound of dirt giving you a nice off the tee downhill throw. But when we played, the basket was in a shorter position requiring more of a technical throw.
# 15 in the long position would definitely accuracy as you have to thread your tee off between two rows of double mando trees about halfway down the fairway. This hole is designed to give the Pro players a challenge.
I liked # 18 best. It was just a short (For this course) ACE run, probably 275', to a basket that was sitting on the tip of a little peninsula of land. About the only pretty hole on this course.
The shade of all these trees was a welcome sight on another scorching day here in the valley.
Cons: The length is probably a little too much for us Rec players. Because there is no underbrush, you are not punished for errant throws except for your score.
The navigation issues were a problem. Just finding the start was difficult. There are some long walkouts and we got lost after # 10 and ended up skipping 11-14.
I just didn't feel any "Wow" factor here. I wasn't bored but just felt that this course was a little bland and lacked any things that give a course personality, such as elevation, water, natural beauty or cleverly designed holes.
Other Thoughts: The course provides ample challenge for the better players just with it's length. It's open enough that us Rec players can play it without being terribly frustrated. I'm just not sure whether either group of players would be really excited about the experience that is Perry Outback DGC.

Average... Definitely overrated
Pros: Some sick bombs off what looks like man made mounds
Nice hole placement of cages on back nine; hiding behind trees
Lots of shade
Some nice obstacles such as creeks
Cons: Not much help to figure out course
Some wide open holes on front 9
Hotttt in afternoons
Dew soaked grass in the mornings that make for slippery disk
People can get in the way
Other Thoughts: Overall good course just not a course that should be 4+ as it is just avg
