Pros: Two courses on site. Stocked pro-shop. Close to the Orlando attractions. Well manicured. Low schule factor. Easy to navigate. Solid fun factor with a bit of challenge.

When it's windy (which is frequently) this course comes to life. The creek and other hazards become much more of a factor and strategy becomes important. Many of the shots have multiple options and it's crucial to make the right choices when it's windy.

Between the two sets of tees and relatively low schule factor, Barnett Parkside has a very broad appeal to players of pretty much all skill levels.
Cons: The routing is awkward in a couple of places. i.e. after playing hole one, you'll cross the creek to tee on hole two and then cross back by hole one's basket to walk down hole two's fairway.

A couple holes that crowd each other and a shot down a bike path are safety concerns.

This park gets a little sketchy at times, particularly towards dark.
Other Thoughts: Overall, Parkside is a well-maintained and fun disc golf course with a moderate amount of challenge. It merits an "average" rating of 2.5. Considering the on-site pro-shop and the second course on property, I'd say that it'd be a "must stop" destination for any disc golfer, except for the fact that Turkey Lake is very closer and better.

Don't be a dirty discer. Leave the course cleaner than you found it!
