 Tight wooded holes and short!

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.
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.
Blue course is tight wooded with different types of shots needed, hyzers, anhyzers, and flips.
Not very long so accuracy is a must!
Cons: -
There are a few con's on the blue course. I like the course but it is very short and not very challenging for myself. Probably highly suitable for beginners and groups. Every time I come here the Blue course is the busiest and since it is my least favorite of the 4 I usually tend to skip it. Baskets are dated and some tee pads are worn out. The fairways are beat up and dirt which is fine except in wet weather it tends to get really messy. Tends to be to busy with large groups always there!
Other Thoughts: -
Blue course is fun and quick if your by yourself I can finish in 20-30 minutes.
There are speed traps by cops here.
Respect the leash law because this area is high traffic.
Out of the four courses at this excellent park Blue would be my last choice to play.

Pros: This course has very nice concrete tees, and is marked well, making it impossible to get lost.
Cons: The holes are very short. You'll only need a putter, and a Roc
Other Thoughts: Blue is good for the novice golfer. Nine under is very doable on this nine

 Good For Beginners & Mid Range Practice

Pros: Short holes and easily visible baskets make this a nice course for beginners. Trees keep it from being a cakewalk. For more experienced players, this is a very good way to work on your mid-range game.
Cons: Little variety to holes. Crowded layout can make for lots of "fores!" being hollered.
Other Thoughts: Very heavily played. Tee boxes all have hole markers so it is easy to find your way around the course.

Pros: One of four 'color coded' nines at this 36 hole course. The 'Blue' nine is easily the most beginner friendly, and frequently the most crowded. A lot of birdie and ace opportunities, yet the many trees will still add challenge to more advanced players.
Cons: Some of the holes on this nine come dangerously close to holes on the 'white' course, so look out for errant throws, especially near the 3rd hole.
Other Thoughts: Been some recent redesign at this course, but Blue seems to be unaffected, with the exception of a new tee pad on the 8th hole.

Nearby disc shop on Division is a nice 'combo stop' if you are in the area, with a nice selection, and friendly staff.

 Short and sweet

Pros: Blue is the most popular course at Brewer, as the large crowds and the occasional wait at #1 will indicate. That being said once you get on it's a fun and fast round. The holes are short and technical. Lots of trees and a little luck is the name of the game. On hole three I dare you put it right thru the wickets, watch out for the fence.
Cons: Waiting at #1 can be a drag. On several holes it's better to be lucky than good. When Blue is busy keep your head on swivel.
