17 good holes
Pros: This is by far the best maintained course in the area--it may be the best at any place I have played. There are benches and even water coolers throughout the course. There was even a park employee the last time I played going around and checking the water coolers. With the exception of maybe one hole, this is a well designed and challenging layout. You better be in shape (especially in the hot months) because you will go up and down slopes for most of the holes. In general, most of the holes are not too long for the average player. It required you to really judge your distances on several holes. You have to be careful on your approaches because most of the baskets are on slopes that can penalize you since the disc may take off and roll away from the basket.
Cons: The long water hole (#16) is just a very poorly designed water hole. Unless you have a secure long arm, there is not really any place to throw. The fairway for a good player is a long throw over water to a basket that slopes dramatically towards the water. If you take have to take a layup route, then you will be very short of the basket and there is not really any path through a tight maze of trees and a slope towards water all the way down the right side. There should really be a bailout area for average or short throwers.
Other Thoughts: But for the one hole, I think this is a great course. It provides a challenging round and the hills and slopes are significantly different from any other course in the area. The amenities and maintenance are top notch. The park seems to improve something every time I play this course. There are discs for sale for cash only in the park office.

Pros: Great course and in one of my favorites in the area. Challenging for all par 3's and the elevation changes will test anyone.
Cons: Be prepared to walk up and down hills..pin placement on some is very tricky. Can't in the lake to retrieve discs if you get wet.
Other Thoughts: I really do enjoy playing on this course even if it is a little of a drive to get there...easy to find and the war memorial is wonderful.

Hills...and more hills
Pros: This course is in a beautiful park. The holes are mostly short - you won't really even need much besides a putter and a mid range, save for maybe one hole over the water. As far as short courses go, it's really not bad overall. There are many ace runs on this course and it will help you with your short game, but...
Cons: The hills. And more hills. HB decided to give folks a workout when playing this one, I guess. For several holes, it's up, then down, then up again. I believe someone already mentioned that you do have to walk up the hill once just to tee off, which is pretty silly in my book. There are also several soccer fields and walking trails that are pretty heavily used. If it's windy, this course can be a real mother. The park admin also won't let anyone get in the water to retreive discs.
Other Thoughts: The pro shop has very good prices on discs. If you're passing by, check it out. I'd go play Murray or Paducah, though, if you're looking for some good discin'.

Pros: This is a very clean and beautiful park. Bathrooms are kept pristine and you can buy discs right there in the park. The kiosk map and tee markers make this well mowed course very easy to navigate.
Lots of elevation changes and a pond to throw over. Many aceable holes and well kept Disccatcher targets plus the wonderful scenery make this a very relaxing experience.
Cons: A bit too wide open. Not really enough trees and the pads are a bit short. You have to walk up a hill to get to a tee where you throw right back down the hill. People paths are used regularly and there is a good chance you might hit someone. Throwing straight up a hill is tough so even though beginners will like part of this course,they will hate the hills going up.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will love this course cause you won't lose your discs unless you toss them into the pond.

hiking boots needed
Pros: Great elevation changes... tons of ace run opportunities. Lake comes into play on 3 holes (but i saw a disc go in on a hole that isn't one of those 3)
Cons: Short tee pads, a few trees in a few fairways. Elevation changes will wear you out.

Good Starter Course
Pros: Mostly wide open fairways, and the park is well kept. The park staff is also friendly and enjoy watching play.
Cons: Very short, with short teepads and some are built up so much that they don't give you an approach to the pad or room for your momentum to carry you off the end.
The hills will wear you out a bit. Holes 11-13 require a lot of walking up and down from baskets to tees.
Other Thoughts: If you are just starting it is a great course to try out. Don't be scared of the water holes. Plenty of holes to ace.
Park office also has Innova discs for sale.

Pros: Good variety of long and short holes with lots of change in elevation. They have added concrete steps, two bridges, and water stations with cups. There are two water holes.
Cons: I can't think of any.
Other Thoughts: A great course. The front 9 is fairly short with three holes that provide legitimate ace opportunities. The front nine wraps around a hill. The back nine plays up and down the sides of an adjacent hill and will wear you out. Two holes require you to throw over a lake but as long as you don't get too greedy you can carry the water with no trouble. The best course in the state west of Madisonville.
