Pros:
Very nice course. Pretty scenery. Good mix of distances on holes with some elevation changes. Typical excellent John Houck tee signs.

Adequate parking. Restroom facilities are decent.

The challenge of this course is to average 3 or better on the first four holes and then get all the 2's you can on the last five holes.

UPDATE: In early to mid-2009 a realistic gap was cut through the brush on hole #1 making it a more fair hole, also all the brush on #4 was cleared out from around the tree in the middle of the fairway making this hole a much easier '3' than it was before.
Cons:
Heavily favors RHBH players as every tee shot is either straight or a hyzer shot. The only significant anhyzer shot is the approach shot on #4 if your tee shot is right of the fairway trees. Not much shot variety in that regard. It looks like #9 was designed to be an anhyzer shot, but wasn't actually installed that way.

Tall reeds and murky creek can swallow discs and make them really hard to find.

For first timers the transition from hole #4 to #5 is not obvious, consult a map.

#7 is a throw away hole; very short and no real challenge.
Other Thoughts:
Course is somewhat divided between the front four and back five. The first holes are longer, the last five are shorter and birdie opportunities abound.

While this was a fun course to play it's not the type of course where a developing player will sharpen a diverse set of skills.

DGCR course map shows hole #1 slightly off from where is actually is. The tee is further from the parking lot and the basket is behind the tree line.

Pros: This is a great 9 hole course. The course is well maintained and mowed. All holes are marked well. The holes have a broad range of distances, with the first 4 being long with tree hazards near the pins. The last five are bordering a small creek and create a narrow fairway. These holes are shorter but require more technical shots and during wet weather avoiding the creek is a must (very cloudy water - discs are lost easily). Several pins are near the creek border.
Cons: Must be mindful of the water hazard on all the last five holes is the water is up at all. During wet weather there are several large pools of water in the fairways to avoid.
Other Thoughts: This is a really fun course for beginner to expert. The holes provide enough challege to play the same 9 over and over again. Besides the beautiful park, there are facilities on site.
