Pros: This course was put in as an Eagle Scout project and is not a great course as it stands now. The course does have concrete tee pads and tee signs. Holes 1,3, and 4 are all wide open straight holes. Hole 2 is wide open, but the tree clump is a mandatory that makes it a sharp dogleg right. The park is really nice and there is room to expand the course and improve it.
Cons: The course is flat and open. Aside from hole 2 there is no variety here. The lengthy distance of the holes isn't exactly beginner friendly, but there isn't anything here to attract anyone else.
The tee sign on hole 1 is right in front of the tee!! Also the distance on the signs is in yards, which was a little weird.
The last 2 holes are along a dog walking path which leads to two problems. First, there is dog poop everywhere which is just disgusting. People need to clean up after their dogs. Second people have a bad tendency to let their dogs run around on the field unleashed which is a real pain. Hole 3 really would be better if it were moved farther away from the dog park.
Other Thoughts: I spoke to some local residents and they said that the park really likes having the disc golf course, but they are considering some reworking of the holes, and possibly adding more holes to make it a full 9-holer. If this course gets some help and is improved/some holes added - it will be much better and worth playing. It is the only course in the area for miles around so a better course would be a real benefit for the area. As it stands now though, it isn't worth a trip to play.

Pros: Well mowed. Wide open and windy if you like hucking it far like that. Tee markers are useful, and there are concrete tee pads.
Cons: First tee sign is RIGHT IN FRONT of the pad. Silly! Tee 2 is either not aimed at the basket (a dogleg right) or is aimed because the island is a mando...the only way this hole could be 723 feet. Course is way too long for beginners, and way too lame for the experienced. Woods don't come into play at all; baskets are all wide open.
Other Thoughts: Not worth the trip, but it is the only attempt at a course for miles around. Maybe the community will support a more thorough, well-planned course.
