Nice 9 holes
Pros: 3 teepads for each hole. I love this idea for a 9 holer that is the only course in town. As a beginner there are tees that fit your game and as a more advanced player there are tees that can test you as well. There is some goo variety for such a small park. you can play 27 different looks.
Navigation is tough........but then I figured out the trick! Each basket has colors painted on them that point right at the next pad of each layout. They are on the rim of the basket. And then there are bricks that have been laid in the ground with a color painted on them leading the way. Cool idea once you know how it works.
Cons: The Teepads are kinda run down in some cases and even though I figured out the navigation trick there is very little marking them. just a colored tile in the ground which is hard to see during fall when the leaves can cover them up.
Some of the baskets are close to other hole tees. Since I'm not sure that this course gets much traffic it may not be an issue but it is a possibility that someone could take an Ape to the Dome
Do not remember benches or trashcans anywhere.
Natural Pads(maybe a con for you)
Other Thoughts: This layout reminds me of Kelsey Scott Park in Salisbury NC. With multiple tees that have a variety of challenges this course can be used by players of many skill levels and could be a good course to develop your game. If you are in the area and have some free time it is defiantly worth a play!

Not all that challenging/ a little hard to navigate
Pros: There are 3 tee locations for each of the 9 baskets, so we played through on Blue, then played again from White and that made for a decent 18. Things are pretty well groomed and we didn't have any lost discs. Park was not crowded at all and we were the only ones there.
Cons: Sort of hard to find your way around, for example, right off the bat the blue and white tees for number 1 are unexpectedly across the road from most of the course. There is a system of colored bricks that point you to the next tee, but they are faded and the course does not flow particularly well. Course is pretty easy by any standard and I had no trouble playing below par my first time. And as someone else mentioned the longer tees on #9 are ridiculous, really long and the whole lane to the basket is overhung with tree branches. I tried it right, left, whatever and it took like 4-5 strokes each time. Sometimes the tees are only colored (faded) pavers placed into the grass.
Another note, the Red/Orange Tees seem ridiculously short to me(we only played a couple) but for that reason I definetly don't consider it a 27 hole course
Other Thoughts: Probably won't be driving an hour to play this one again, but if it were a bit closer I would try it a couple more times

Short but fun
Pros: This is a nine hole course with three tees, making it versitile. Each tee box is marked by a trail of bricks from the last hole. The tees are natural. This course is extremely easy to navigate once you find the pattern. The Orange tees are good to introduce players to the game or for juniors/seniors.
There was lots of diversity in the types of holes. All holes are very close to the restrooms and parking lots.
Cons: This is an extremely short course. This is not for the advanced player. The blue tees will challenge you on a couple of holes.The white and blue tee for hole 1 is not easy to find until you have completed hole 9. The teeing area of most holes are not level.
Other Thoughts: It would be easier to find the tees if there was a marker above the ground at the tee box.
