Pros: -This course actually has some decent hole variety. A lot of this is do to the greens, several are right by various drainage ditches, which pose good risks for roll aways.

-The holes that play around the creek are actually very fun. There are both anhyzer and hyzer holes that force you to throw over it, with some risk/reward surprising for a hole like this.

-There is a tough tunnel shot at this course that is really uncharacteristic of this course, and is actually really fun.

-The baskets at this course are new, and in great shape.

-This course boasts a 450'+ hole, that is a really nice chance to let one bomb out there. While its an easy hole, it's fun, and a good change from the shorter holes here.
Cons: -The signs could use some work, with just hole numbers and distances.

-The flow here is a little odd, but not too terrible.

-Several holes here are really easy, and really breed deuce or die mentality.

-The grass tees leave a lot to be desired. Even if they were just dug up to dirt, to give somewhat better footing, it would still be an improvement.
Other Thoughts: This course isn't quite what you'd expect from a "beginner course" with surprising risk/reward, and a good variety of holes. While I wouldn't go out of my way to play here, it's certainly worth stopping in if you're playing the other courses in the area.

Pros: - Course is set in a small neighborhood park, which contains a large drainage ditch. This provides for some hilly areas, along with a small creek/forest on one side. Doesn't seem like any other activities would get in the way of the disc golf, maybe some random pedestrians on the walking path.
- The best parts of this course are situated next to the creek, which is also lined with larger, mature trees. It is designed very well, with a bunch of different shots to be found. There is a RHBH hyzer that has the forest on the left, and a RHBH anhyzer with the forest on the right. There is a hole that involves going over the creek, and around some forest, some extreme lines are needed to get around. Another hole has some guardian trees right off the tee, with the creek directly beneath.
- Drainage ditch area provides some decent elevation to work with, usually in the form of an elevated green/basket. The hyzer and anhyzer listed above have elevated baskets, as well as the one that goes over the creek. This provides a good amount of challenge; there are some definite roll-away spots, and requires some extra accuracy off the tee and on approaches.
- Good variety in hole length, there is a legitimate ace run, a legitimate bomber, a few longer holes, and many that fall in the casual player's range.
- Tees are fine, baskets are good, and signage is good as well (one missing though).
Cons: - A few holes here have really nothing to them, just a basket in a field. This is true for the shortest and longest hole; not much excitement. Overall the holes are on the shorter side, with only one over 315'.
- Drainage area can easily flood, making some parts of the course unplayable. #2's tee is smack in the middle of it, so there could possibly be an underwater tee shot.
Other Thoughts: - If this is considered a beginner course, it is one of the best ones I've played. While there are some throwaway holes, or others that are just plain and boring, there are others that have some good challenge, interesting lines, and tough punishment. All the holes by the creek have some trick to them, and others by the drainage ditch have decent hilliness. A more advanced player will probably be done after one round, but most everyone else will find something that's tricky for them.

Pros: great place to practice every shot. Even though there are only 12 holes on this course, it tests many aspects of your game. Several holes have distance of 300+, dogs left, dogs right, tunnel, and shots over water.
Clean park, very little crowding. Retention ponds DO come in to play during spring and after tons of rain adding some difficulty to the course.
Cons: Wish there were 18 holes! Basket on hole number 1 should be moved straight back to the treeline where the old #3 basket previously was. It would add considerable distance and risk/reward to the hole.
Other Thoughts: All in all a fun "home course" for me and my 2 sons. Don't go out of your way just to play this course but if you are traveling through on your way to Jericho, Eagle Ridge or Shorewood, play a quick round here just to say you did.

Pros: It's a decent course. The mild elevation changes help keep it interesting. Not many obstacles on the open holes. The baskets are new. There are grass tee pads, which in my opinion, should be changed to concrete. Especially once this course becomes more popular. Tee signs are ok; distance appears to be accurate; no mandatories or OB defined, but it's pretty evident. The holes flow fairly well. For those who haven't played here before, knowing where to go after each hole could be a little confusing. The holes vary in distance. Number 12 is a par 5, which seems rather generous, it should be a 4. The park is well maintained. Garbage cans are present. OB is thick with thorns and brush. I went OB twice, resulting in scrapes while retrieving my disc. A couple holes run along a creek (which flows surprisingly fast for a creek), so a wide throw could prove troublesome.
Cons: Very windy. No shade or mature trees on the open holes.
Other Thoughts: No other golfers there when I played. Probably not too popular. Parking is on the street. There's a baseball diamond in the park, but it doesn't interfere with the course. When there's a game or practice, parking could be an issue.

Pros: This was an enjoyable course to play. There is a good variety of shots. Most are pretty open. Only a couple longer holes (over 350ft.) One hole has you throwing an big anhyzer over a creek. Another is a tunnel shot through the woods.
Cons: Only 12 holes. The wind was a big factor when I played.
Other Thoughts: Not a bad course by any means. I would rather make the extra drive to play Oswego or Jericho Lake.
