Pros: A great course for Rec players and beginners. a good course to get experience doing short up shots. lately the course is being cleaned up and improved upon, lots of dead trees have been cut down and wood chipped so the course isnt all dirt any more, New benches and picnic tables have been remade by the Boy scouts, and new signs have been put on every hole and also signs showing where the next tee placement is. a vetern to the disc golf scene has been taking his free time to make a retaining wall on hole for by the basket to make it so discs dont get up and roll as bad, they still roll but not as badly. There use to be complaints about hole 8's basket being bad, it has now been replaced with a much nicer basket and is in a new place farther from the river, also there is a new retaining wall between the basket and the river making the river be a little wider and alot of the very muddy land that was there was dug up to make the retaining wall be level ground. hole 8 also has a new bridge incase you throw over the river towards the end of the hole. hole 9 has a stairs going from the tee pad onto the bridge along with a small run off the tee pad using rocks so your shoes dont get nearly as muddy if you step off. most of the stairs on the course have been filled in with gravel or wood chips also, this course is starting to look really nice.
Cons: Experienced players may find them selves using only a a couple discs, there are a variety of shots but i can make it through the course with a magnet since most of the shots are a RHBH anhyzer or a straight shot.
Other Thoughts: if you have a cannon you might wanna lay up on hole 8 instead of trying to make it to the bend otherwise you might be finding yourself wet

Pros: Beautiful wooded course with a creek winding through. The tees are in excellent condition and have a good size to them, maybe even a little more than you would need on most of the holes.
Tee signs are fairly basic, but do the job. Plenty of shot shaping and accuracy is demanded on this course. The design of the course utilizes the elevation in the woods perfectly which also adds to the playing with your depth perception aspect of the course. Most of the holes are pretty short and can be played with just a midrange and putter. There are a couple of holes that you can kind of open up on, but accuracy is still demanded. You will need just about every shot in your bag out here as well. Super fun 12 hole course that plays fairly quick. Good warm up for some of the bigger courses in the area.
Cons: No real cons other than it could get pretty muddy after a good rain due to mostly dirt landscape in the woods.
Other Thoughts: Even though this course is only 12 holes, it is a very fun course. Could easily get two rounds in here in the same time it takes to get one in at some of the other courses.

Pros: - Course is set in a wooded area in a big, multi-use park. Luckily, all the other activities are well separated, so there shouldn't be any interference.
- Nearly all the holes here are in the woods in some way or another. A wide variety of lines present, with lots of gaps to hit. #5 is a tight downhill RHBH hyzer, #9 is an uphill hyzer from the short tee, and #10 is a little hyzer over a small ditch. Lots more RHFH or RHBH anny shots here; #2 is straight from the long tees with a right finish, #6 is a sharp uphill flick shot, #11 is a short uphill shot with the basket on the right. Also some straight shots, like #4, #9 long over a swampy area, and #12. Accuracy is very important on most holes.
- A few holes stand out here; #7 has an elevated tee that needs a flick or anny to get through a gap, with water long along the left hand side. #8 is the real big boy, from the longs. A straight, RHBH flex shot is needed to get through multiple gaps, to land on the fairway. It then bends right around the woods with nasty water all along the left hand side. At 671', it takes two really, really good shots to get a look at a 3, but it's doable.
- Two of the holes are out of the woods for the most part, but are still interesting. #1 is a slight downhill shot over a pool of water, and #10 is a small hyzer into a few trees. Still need to execute a line.
- Decent elevation changes on this course; there are some downhill shots on #1, #5, and #7, and uphill slopes on #2, #6, and #9. #7 is the only extreme one, but they are all noticeable for sure.
- Water hazards are present in multiple spots, and are definitely treacherous. #1's water is pretty much the whole fairway, #5 has water behind the basket, #7 has water long and left, and #8 has the creek along the left side for the second half of the hole. #9 also takes a shot over a swamp and through a gap.
- Nice big teepads, good baskets and signs. Some navigational signs help to get around. A few tricky spots, mostly between #5 and #7. Map helps. Very nice bridges and stairs too, where necessary.
Cons: - The biggest con at this course is some pretty short hole lengths, even from the long tees. Six of the holes, aka half of the holes, are at or under 222'. Definitely some dinky holes, overshooting is sometimes the main concern. Take out the 671' hole, and the average hole length drops to 231'.
- Course is pretty much dirt, and could probably get very muddy with some rain, and possibly flooded in some spots. (Except for some turf on a few holes!) Just something to think about on a rainy day.
Other Thoughts: - Overall, a pretty fun wooded course that has a good mix of hole shapes and sizes, multiple teepads on eight holes, plenty of shorter shots but also a few tough long ones. Shorter holes aren't super easy either, there are some tricky lines. Good for beginners from the shorts, as long as they can avoid the water. Even advanced players will find some tricky shots as well.

Pros: Hole 1 is a really nice, easy first hole. I use my 4S Wizard off the tee, other recommendations I have are using either a Buzzz or a Roc and just finesse the disc into the circle for an easy birdie.

Hole 2 Has a pretty tricky tee off at a moderate uphill angle. The basket is pretty straight off from the tee and just to the right of the fairway. I recommend a hyzer flip with a Buzzz or a Metor. Give it a fair amount of snap so it slides out right as it drops.

Hole 3 Is the first longer hole good for a stable fairway driver like a Teebird or a Stalker. Its an easy par for most rec players.

Hole 4 is a great ace run hole. Its all about placement of your shot when it comes to this hole.

Hole 5 is one of the trickier holes. I spike Hyzer this with an over stable mid like a hornet. Be careful of the stream just past the pin.

Hole 6 is an awesome uphill anhyzer shot. I grab my Buzzz here and just arc it out nice and high and give it some juice. Fore-handing works just as well on this hole.

Hole 7 is a really technical downhill shot with the basket off to the right. The best option is to grab something stable and forehand it.

Hole 8 is the signature hole. Shot placement is key and being proficient with your mids. I used a Roc for every shot on this hole simply because they land flat and don't really skip around too often. Stay within your playing ability and don't over think this one.

Hole 9 is a nice hole to catch your breath on with a nice gradual uphill shot. Perfect for a Buzzz.

Hole 10 is somewhat deceptive. If you are going for the ace, the best route is take the path on the left side of the big tree. I recommend only using putters on this hole because overshooting it is devastating.

Hole 11 is all awesome for both forehand and anhyzers. Use a nice stable mid whichever way you want to go about playing this hole, just don't overshoot it.

Hole 12 is an awesome way to finish out the course, nice longer hole that has plenty of different obstacles. You generally want to stay tight to the right side off of the tee and once it opens up you can really let loose.

This is a very challenging course that has plenty of elevation change and lots of really creative shots. You will use every disc in your bag in most cases which I love doing.
Cons: Sandy, really sandy. My new shoes were covered in dust after and it just felt nasty. My other issue is that there are no really wide open holes to bust out a big drive.
Other Thoughts: The only thing I would really like to see is some manicuring, maybe put in some mulch and some more stairs. Also, this is the only course I have seen with astro turf, so thats kinda cool. All in all, a super fun, challenging course.

Pros: -course is mostly in the shade
-some tough shots on almost every hole
-you have to take risks because of the creek on almost every hole
-concrete tees
Cons: WHERE DO I BEGIN???
- Worst signage i have ever seen on a discgolf course
- sewer water in the creek
- every hole is short, but a random 8 hole that is 600ft
- broken bottles and trash everywhere
- the stairs to some holes are HALF filled with leaves, no point in using them becasuse it's easier to walk on the slope
- cant tell where you are throwing to because most of the time you cant see the basket and there is no signs or markers
- worst place to start out disc golfing as beginners will find it very tough and not fun especially when you keep throwing it in the creek
Other Thoughts: maybe if this course was pay to play, it could improve alot, but until then im not coming back. Should'nt even have to pay to get signs and other stuff.

And to the 4 people who marked this as unhelpful, this course really is poor, i would rather take a risk getting shot in brooklyn park playing disc golf than going back to plymouth creek to go for a swim

Pros: The course plays through a small wooded park. A couple holes bring some water into play, adding a little risk. Hole 8 plays 600' along a creek, every shot offers the tradeoff of going for distance and risking ending up in the water. The rest of the course is short, but minor hills and dense trees keep things interesting. There is a good mix of left and right turning shots, with enough trees to offer some punishment for errant shots. The concrete tees are in decent shape, and the baskets are ok. The signage is basic but plenty informative, and the course flow is intuitive with no navigation issues.
Cons: The course seems to get a ton of traffic, and it's taken it's toll. The fairways (other than the astroturf on 1 and 2) are very compacted, and the hilly areas are suffering some erosion issues. I really liked the long hole along the creek, but it felt very odd in combination with all the short holes. I would have liked a bit more length variety between the extremes. There was a lot of trash including broken bottles when I played, and locals said that was a pretty usual state of affairs, always unfortunate when that element of the disc golf population takes over.
Other Thoughts: I was happy to see a fun 12 hole course rather than a cramped 18 holer on this piece of land. Beginners will have a blast here, with very short short tees and mostly rec friendly long tees, combined with only limited punishment for missing your line. More experienced players aren't going to really be tested outside of hole 8, but it is a fun place to shape some putter and mid lines if you're willing to brave the crowds.

Pros: -A whole variety of hole types.
-All holes have a cement tee.
-90% in the shade, great for hot sunny summer days.
-Actual danger holes.
-Water fountain at 'Warming Hut'.
-Benches and garbage's all around.
-(Update, they added new rocks and touched up some holes as of this summer[2011])
Cons: -Expect kids fooling around in the afternoon, and adults that SERIOUSLY take there time in the early afternoon. (Annoying Traffic)
-Parking shared by multiple soccer and baseball fields.
-Stupid teens destroy everything, from the fun of the game, to physical things like the trees, and leaving litter everywhere... some of the tee's even got stolen a five'ish years back.
-If you haven't been here in awhile, look before you throw, they changed the tee locations.
-Kids toss their trash anywhere they please, and the trash bins are emptied infrequently.
-All the low level plant life is gone, making some of the tee-to-hole play hard for anyone new to the course.
-Depending on the weeks weather, the course can be unplayable; flooded, muddy, freakishly buggy.
Other Thoughts: -This Place Rocks!!!!

Pros: Variety of throws. Nice to be in the woods. Not a course where you drive your disc every throw. Actual tees and nice baskets. Overall enjoyable course that I play at least twice a week
Cons: Do not come here within 3 days after a storm as the stream's water level will raise and carry your disc downstream, Hole 3 will have a pond around it that you can't see until after you tee off, Hole 5 will be in the stream, the tee for Hole 9 will be under water, and Hole 8 becomes much more enjoyable if any of your discs fade to the left as they will end up in the creek. Lots of stoners and drinking. Busy during afternoon after 3pm.
Other Thoughts: Definitely a course worth the drive. The only real problem is after it rains a lot it becomes a lot less enjoyable. Holes 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 11 could use an anhyzer shot.

 Rec Course With Enviromental Concerns!

Pros: Starting with #1 throwing the hyser shot around the corner, across the little water hazard and to a green, ARTIFICAL GRASS GREEN. This is the first I've seen on a disc golf course. And then artifical grass starting off the first 100 feet or more of the second fairway. I thought the whole course was going to covered. But I found out otherwise and saw why. This is a major high impact course with lots of traffic. There are two pads for each hole. The pads for the longs (cough, cough, longs??????) are really extra long and nice concrete pads. I've seen so many pro-calibier courses which could use these pads. The short tees are a little smaller than standard. From the shorts, this plays as a Pitch & Putt. From the longs, it's a great Intermediate course. Many tee signs were missing. #'s 5, 10 and 11 were all fun little ACE runs. # 8 is pretty much a killer hole at 600' with the creek in play on your left side all the way. It could easily blow your round up.
Cons: I squeezed in a round just before dark and the course was still filled with players. I could imagine what it would be like at primetime.

I'd be mostly concerned with enviromental issues mainly ground compaction and erosion issues. I hope the disc golf community is willing to work with government agencies. The indoor/outdoor carpet is a good start.
Other Thoughts: This is truly a nice little course. 12 good holes is better than 18 holes squeezed in. That doesn't bother me a bit. What does bother me is the fact that the Parks Department has to put up a sign specifically aimed at the disc golfers pleading with them to stop abusing drugs, alcohol and to quit littering on this course. Players, you have to take some ownership here. Pack your litter out! Don't hesitate to pick something up and carry it to the nearest can. This course is a treasure that you don't want to lose.
