Pros: Nice clean fast course. Good course to bring family and make a day of it. Great signs nice tees.
Cons: could use a small walk bridge to get across the rocks.trail to 8 tee from 7 is over grown. 6 and 7 are potential disc eaters.
Other Thoughts: great easy course for the whole family. If you have small children take them, they don't get bored because of the play pace.

Small, Easy Park Course

Pros: -Tee Signs: Signs were clear and well marked
-Park Amenities: Washroom facilities and parking lot on site
-Shot variety: 9 holes offer several shot lines throughout
-Maintenance: Lawn is mowed well, and facilities are generally in good condition
-Baskets: New baskets are numbered in orange, and are easy to see from a distance
Cons: -Small Teepads: The teepads were absolutely tiny. That being said, the short holes don't require too much of a run-up. But the tees definitely feel crowded
-Holes too close together: With much traffic, discs from other holes become too much of a danger
-Lack of distance: While the park is open, no holes over 300 feet provide no opportunity to practice driving
-Long Walks, Little Flow: Some holes were really far apart, and others doubled back on each other. The course seemed to have nearly no natural flow between holes
Other Thoughts: This course is easy to score on, and thus fun to play, but provides very little challenge to the advanced player. Worth a quick round if you are in the area, but not worth too much of a drive

Good small course

Pros: Small course, good for beginners, not busy, well marked with concrete pads
Cons: Very short course
Other Thoughts: Don't make a special trip just for this course, better make a day trip and hit a couple of nearby courses like Springfield and Mound Creek park in Brown county

 Typical Small Town City Park Course

Pros: -Good baskets
-Good Signage
-Good teepads
-Course map at start
-Easy to follow and not long walks between holes
-Probably won't lose a disc here
-They use the limited elevation changes well
-Easy to find and there is an ample parking lot right near hole 1
Cons: -High traffic park with other activities than disc golfing. Watch out for people using the trails especially.
-Not the longest course, this course is more of a beginner course than most
-This is pretty open and it can get quite windy
Other Thoughts: There isn't anything specifically bad about this course. The fact is, it is just a typical small town city park course. It is fairly short and not too challenging. You have to share the park with others. It is good for a quick round or two but it may become old after a few rounds.

Pros: Variety of shots. A number of wide open holes interspersed with wooded holes, some shots require some mild lines left or right.

Concrete tees. On every hole, relatively level and in good shape.

Baskets. All in good shape.

Amenities. Large parking area, playground, and bathrooms.

Elevation. What elevation the park has is used relatively well.

Ace opportunites. Every hole can be reached in one by most, presenting plenty of opportunities for an ace run and every hole should be birdiable.

Beginner friendly. This would be a great place to be introduced to the sport, not too long for small arms, it would be difficult to lose a disc, and there is opportunity to learn different shots.

Not crowded. Besides the occasional person on the walking trail, I saw nobody on this course.

Well maintained. The course was very clean, the fairways were mowed, and everything was in good shape.
Cons: Pedestrians. On a number of occasions I had to wait for *slow* pedestrians to make their way past on the walking trail.

Bathroom. Hole 6, I just imagine letting my drive rip just as someone is stepping out the door of the bathroom, they would never know what hit them.

Short. Every hole was 2-300 feet, not much variety of distance.
Other Thoughts: An enjoyable quick 9 holes provides an opportunity for practicing short lines. I'd recommend it if passing through the area - makes a great combination day with Mound Creek, Mayflower, and Plum creek.
