Long Enough and Lovin' it.
Pros: I am rewriting this review since I have played and reviewed over 70+ courses since this was written. This is one of my home courses, but I am not a home course pride kind of person, so that will have nothing to do with the review.
This is a wider and more open type course. There are a few well positioned trees, a couple of creeks, a small pond, and even a sort of "tree tunnel" type hole here. There are only a few true "lefty" holes. Most of this course is fairly straight. The maintenance done here by the parks department is well kept. Fairways are mowed with the rough not being crazy. This place has nice signage and great cement tee pads and replace pins within a few weeks if they become missing. The park is clean and has trash cans along the way. There are 3 course par 4's and par 5's. The par is great for the recreational or amateur players. #9 tees off the top of a slope and it runs along a small creek on the last half of the hole into a more narrow tree line to the basket. #13 has a small pond to throw over or you can throw to the side and go around it. #17 is know as the Disc Eating Monster. The creek runs along the left side eating right hander's out of control hyzer shots. One really good thing about this course is that after a big rain, this may be one of the first courses that will become somewhat playable in the area.
Cons: There are some long walks to the next hole like #5 to #6 and #14 to #15 and #17 to #18, but they are not that excessive. #18 tees is placed on the other side of an entire soccer field back in the corner along the creek. It is kind of tough to find your first time out. If there has been lots of rain, this tee pad can get mudded up or water covered. On the weekends, this course can get pretty busy. There are not many really tough holes on this course they are just a bit longer than some of other courses in the immediate area. This place does have snakes in the creeks and poison itching plants in the well shaded areas. So keep this in mind when playing here. There are no restrooms or drinking water near this course.
Other Thoughts: The fun factor here for me, is fairly decent. There are about 6 holes I really look forward to throwing on. This is a good course for people who like to let it rip and for the beginner player working on their form and distance. I am not normally a fan of course that are long and fairly open, but the designer, Brian "Maceman" Mace, did a great job making sure almost every hole had some kind of obstacle or trouble area and yet keep it new player friendly. This course is pretty packed on the weekends.

Pros: Flat, lightly wooded course with great brand new equipment. Some very long holes for par 3.
Cons: Walking, lots of thorns in brush. Easy to throw discs in water on some holes.
Other Thoughts: The legend of hole 17. It eats discs. Also watch out for 18, 13, 15. If you lose a disc, its gonna be gone by the end of the day. People are out all the time in the ponds and rivers looking for discs.

Arcadia course review
Pros: Challenging and long, great equipment (concrete tees, DISCatcher baskets, detailed signs). Very pretty park in suburban neighborhood.
Cons: Some walking between holes
Other Thoughts: There is water on the course that comes into play on many holes (8, 12, 13, 15, 17, and 18), but seems like it's pretty easy to retrieve with a retriever. Watch out for other park users! There is room for additional holes and alternate teepads/pin positions.
