 The Course Needs a lot of Work!

Pros: The course starts out with a 400 foot hole for #1. 1, 2, & 3 are very playable. #3 tees off from the side walk.
Cons: The park is overgrown with all types of vegetation, including blackberries. Tee's are only marked with a little orange flag.
Other Thoughts: The course looks like it is a work in progress type course. Only 6 tone poles right now. Someone has been doing a lot of work clearing tee pads and fairways on #4 and #6. #4 is still a jungle.
This could be a good course if the rest of the course is put back in.
Disc Golf could easily own this park.
Bring your fairway clearing tools and help to remove some blackberries.

I'll try to keep this review updated. I can foresee some upgrades to this course in the future.

Pros: The time I played Simpson it was a nine or ten hole course but this was many years ago and I forget the exact date and number. From what I remember it was a wooded course with short dogleg and tunnel shots, near and over surrounding water I don't remember the course being extremely busy. It had some interesting shots and could be decent with some work but this was three years ago so I don't know how it looks now.
Cons: There are tone poles which are a con to some people. The course was horribly grown over when we played the course to find your discs on or off the fairway was an adventure in itself. It was hard to locate where some of the baskets and tee pads were and that sucked the fun out of the round for sure.
Other Thoughts: I'm glad to see that this course is back up and running at least with six holes, the club down there must be doing a great job. With some work this could be a decent little course but it needs to be maintained. A complete layout change needs to happen to make this place reach its 1 star potential.

Pros: It use to be a decient course
Cons: The pins have been taken down. The nearby lake has been contaminated by the industrial area on the hill, so it stinks pretty bad. Not the best place to be.
Other Thoughts: There is a hike on the back side of the lake, nice little path if you are willing to risk sprouting a third eye.
