Nice quick round
Pros: Clean park. Beginner friendly. Big yellow posts with red top make it where you don't need next Tee signs. Nice disc catchers. Enough parking. Hole 1 is the most technical hole as it has more trees than most of the others. Great place to bring your practice basket and make up your own shots, mainly because there are some hills from which to launch that were not used in the design. Some were, just not all. Big mean drainage ditch/creek. Discs are retrievable but it is pretty steep in a couple of spots. Wind can add challenge as it is a pretty wide open course except for a few pockets of trees. Hole 2 used the creek nicely. It is about 300 ft. to the pin with the creek about 240. Which leaves us noodle arms with a question of strategery. Pros would consider it another ace run and just park it. Great practice course or place to play your 1st round because of the lack of trees and deep water hazards.
Cons: People everywhere, 1st day of spring may have played a role. The design could have been better IMO, the hills would have been fun to launch off of. Just nitpicking. For what this park is, there isn't too many cons. Just few design tweaks would suit me. Of course there is the safety issue and that is because they put a disc golf course in a busy park, so no big surprise. We are used to sharing these city park type courses with civilians anyways so just watch out for the little ones.
Other Thoughts: This is a quick round and good practice for whatever shot you need to work on, because it's so open and forgiving of poor 1st shots. If you are close then by all means bag it and porter park is only about 4 miles away.

Fun for all
The city always does a great job for making courses and keeping them well kept.
Great for Right Handed Side Arm throwers and for Lefties!
I have never played it when it was crowded. This could be a great place to let the kids and wife hangout on the playground equipment while you squeeze 9 holes in under an hour. Even though it has little shot variety, it has a few holes that make it worth playing.
Top 3 holes.
#2 Is the best hole on the course. You have to either throw short of the creek or cross over a creek that cuts in the fairway. A stream also flows on the right of this hole and could eat some discs. Also play the concrete OB.
#3 This hole along with 2 or the top holes to play. Good shots are a must, but even a beginner can handle it. Very balanced.
#7 Longer in comparison to the others on the course. Roughly wide open but the creek will come into play. Big arms will have no problem making a 2 or a 3.
For only 9 holes it is a fun little course and worth playing.
#8 & 9 seem like the same hole played twice.
#1 is very short…too short.
No bridge to cross over the #8 or back to #1. You have to walk right by the road, and if you have kids this can be scary.
Won't affect play but some of the tee signs are missing or vandalized.
If you live in the area this would be a nice course to come to after work. Just lacking a few things but it does compare well to the others in the area.

Pros: Good beginner course. Pretty wide open and not much OB for upper caliber player. Good baskets and concrete tee pads, along with good tee signs. You can play this course very fast and multiple times!! Not very busy so you can throw lots of drives and test new discs/shots out.
Cons: Too easy for Pro/Adv player. No bridges on backside. Other then that, there are no complaints.
Other Thoughts: Bring suntan lotion in the summer. Dont know how it would be after a big rain with the creekbed being there.

Debusk DGC Review
Pros: - Great signage at every hole.
- Great course to practice driving due to open terrain.
- Very attractive park. Part of the course follows a creek that comes slightly into play on a few holes.
- Course is well groomed and maintained.
Cons: - Almost too open.
- You don't have to think much on this course.
- Needs more trees and/or shrubs to create obstacles or hazards to get around or avoid.
- Should build 2 bridges. One to cross over the creek from 7 to 8 and one to cross over the creek after 9 to get back to the parking lot.
Other Thoughts: This a fun little course and I will definitely play here again. If you have a consistent throw and can putt at all, Par should be in range for even beginners.
