Pros: This is the second course in this large multi-use park, both seem to be in exclusive areas without interference from other park uses. The course is tightly wooded with heavy rough, you'll definitely be punished if you miss your line and end up much off the fairway. The combination of large cedar trees and tight brush make a nice combination. The holes are short but tricky, with some ace runs and some that are tougher to get to despite the lack of distance. The tees are small but adequate, and the concrete is in fine shape. The tees are numbered and color coded so it's not too tricky when the courses cross near one another.
Cons: The lengths are very short, and that gets a bit repetitive, and doesn't offer a full range of tests to more experienced players. This course is very heavy on LHBH hyzer type shots, it gets a little old. I would prefer to see a wider range of hole shapes on each course rather than having the two courses cater to two different throwing styles. The signage is poor, there are some tricky spots to navigate and you'll have to scout several blind holes without distances or hole layouts on the signs.
Other Thoughts: I had fun here working on upshots and throwing spike hyzers over the trees, but there isn't a full range of disc golf challenge here. Experienced players won't really be tested, and will find the course pretty repetitive. Beginners will enjoy the shorter length, but the combination of very tight lines and punitive rough could get pretty frustrating.

Pros: A really unique, fun, but more of a joke type layout with really tight shots often over trees and sharply around blind corners. Provides for a different type of challenge, where finesse must be used or you'll suffer.
Cons: - Tough to navigate without the online map.
- 6-7$ to enter the park.
- Not well mowed.
- Holes too short for professional players, yet so tight and technical not a good course for a beginner either.
- Many blind shots, have to scout ahead and use spotters.
- Ivy/oak/sumac/ticks/mosquitoes
Other Thoughts: Bring long pants, map and a bag of tricks!
