Pros: Brand new disc golf course. That means the baskets are in great shape, the teesigns are all present and teepads are excellent shape. Parking is easy and plentiful and there is a info kiosik right by hole 1. Most hole are pretty straightforeward and navigation is easy. I enjoy the use of the elevation changes to mix things up. The first few holes are next to a creek which adds a nice challenge.
Cons: This course is a little too open for me. More trees on this would add a lot to it, otherwise you just throw your disc straight ahead with nothing to get inyour way. Also with no trees, the wind could be a factor on several of your shots. The cement teepads are a little short and definately too narrow.
Other Thoughts: This could be a great option to take newer players to. Rather easy for a pro player, but a new player will appreciate the obstacle free course. A walking trail runs throughout the length of the course cutting across the fairways so look out. The wood teesigns were well done. If you need a place to try out your new driver come here, if you need some trees to deal with then go elsewhere.

Pros: Maintained well resembles a ball golf course. Not the typical course obstructions. There are bushes and berms to play around instead of just trees. So clean it is near impossible to lose a disc.
Cons: Wind, and lots of it. It is a new course and the trees are small.
Other Thoughts: Holes 3 and 4 run side by side, so after you tee off 3 take the few discs you'll need and leave your bag between the two teepads. Thus saving you from carring your bag down and back.

Hole 16 plays accross a marshy area with constant standing water, but someone has made a makeshift bridge out of pallets an stones as of the last time I was out there.

Pros: Well maintained grounds/facilities. Fairly easy course, good beginner course.
Cons: Couple holes (16,17) don't seem finished yet. 16 goes over a marshy creek bed at the pin, must walk all the way around to get back to hole, needs bridge or walkway. 17 is better, tee box concrete finally poured but erosion damage on hill alongside hole diminishes playability slightly.
Other Thoughts: Very well thought out course for the space available. Holes 1-4 play back and forth pretty close to each other but it opens up after that.

Pros: It's brand new and it shows. Very well maintained park. Decent mixture of long and short holes. They did the best they could with a wide open flat park.
Cons: It's really wide open but there are some trees. There are better courses in the area.
Other Thoughts: It will age well I'm sure, within the next couple years I'm sure it will grow into itsself.
