Pros: Earl Brewer Park has 4 nine hole courses on this property.
Each course is somewhat unique and offers it's on set of challenges.
The course is well maintained and taken care of a big improvement from just a few years ago.
The property has a soccer complex as well as a park area for the little ones.
Dog friendly, ample parking, somewhat decent signs, and benches to sit on.
Easy to find off highway 131.
Ample parking.
Very clean and an excellent area made for disc golf.
Pretty decently marked with a good layout of course so it would be hard to get lost in the White course.
White course has some really excellent holes. My favorite hole at this entire complex is #1 white. Very scenic and challenging. The 2nd hardest course at this facility.
You will be using most of your arsenal on this nine!
Cons: There are a few con's on the WHITE course. Signs are worn as well as some baskets. If there is a rain of any sort there seems to be flooding issues espically with hole #5 and #7. Probably the 2nd busiest out of the 4 courses. There are speed traps by cops here.
Other Thoughts: Respect the leash law because this area is high traffic.
Out of the four courses at this excellent park White would be my second choice to play.

White has excellent variety with some good elevation mixes as well as some tight wooded holes. For me it is by far the funnest of the 4 courses.

Pros: Nice mix of holes with long fairly open ones to begin with. Some tricky blind shots for first timers. Well maintained fairways and greens.
Cons: Wet and mucky in several areas.
Other Thoughts: This course is better laid out than red/gold and mostly makes it obvious where the next tee lies. Combine Blue and White and you'll have worked on all parts of your game.

Pros: One of four 'color coded' nines at this 36 hole course. The 'White' nine is the most balanced of the four nines, with a good mix of holes and situations, including some nice elevation changes, and one long monster hole to start off with (and another long one to finish with, except through the trees this time)
Cons: Some of the rough on the first hole can be unforgiving, and also will get wet and squishy during the spring or after prolonged rainy periods. Also some wet nasty rough near the 7th basket.
Other Thoughts: Some recent renovations at this park have left White untouched, although I've noticed that in the wettest part of the spring, the basket for hole one is moved uphill out of the swamp.

There's a nice disc shop nearby on Division that makes a nice combo stop if you are in the area.

Pros: Great course, no place to easily lose discs. Most Tees let you really rip it as far as you can without worry of losing it.
Cons: Some of the tees are just a little confusing
Other Thoughts: Lots of picnic tables and there are also grills.

Pros: IMHO Brewer White is the best overall course at Brewer Park. It offers a few wide open holes where you can go for some distance. Most holes have some decent elevation change. The back half has lots of trees with some more technical shots. Hole three is a personal favorite, a short, uphill hole. It has two big trees just in front of the tee pad. This makes for an interesting approach/drive while at the same time trying to get it uphill.
Cons: Gets pretty mucky after it rains. Bring bug spray.
Other Thoughts: This course has some holes that you could toss some mandos into. Brewer doesn't have any and I would like to see a few on either white or blue.
