Pros: The course plays through a disc golf exclusive area with limited interference from other park uses. A handful of holes have some elevation in play, with a hill on one side of the course. One hole offers an opportunity to throw a nice long downhill drive, and a couple others have some tricky elevation changes to consider.

There are some reasonably technical lines to hit here, with trees in play on most holes. There is an ok mix of potential shots here, though many holes have multiple routes that allow players to stick to a hyzer for much of the course. The dual tees offer a nice mix of hole lengths and some slightly different lines. The alternate pin positions also make for some good variety and replayability. The brand new baskets and concrete tees are in great shape, and the park was clean and free of trash or vandalism.
Cons: With no signage and baskets without numbers, it can be a real pain to follow the layout here. I had trouble even with the course map, without a map or guide it would be basically impossible to play all the holes in the correct order. There are several spots where multiple baskets are in view, and again the lack of signage makes things a bit confusing.

The course gets a bit repetitive, many of the short tees are similar lengths, and with scattered trees and no rough things start to feel pretty similar. The course isn't all that challenging, all the technical shots are reachable, and the longer holes are open enough to not really provide much of a test.

When I played, half of the course was knee high grass. From the pictures it seems like that was a temporary thing so I didn't ding the rating for it, but it took away from the fun factor on that particular day.
Other Thoughts: Beginners can have a great time here, especially from the shorter tees. The distances are reasonable, and there are trees to avoid but no punitive rough or really tight lines. More experienced players will find this course a bit repetitive, and even the longer set of tees isn't going to test a full range of disc golf skills.

Pros: Decent amount of technical shots
Cons: Tees are hard to find, you better hope you find a local to guide you.
Other Thoughts: I recommend visiting this course now and again, but I recommend choosing a different course for regular visits

Pros: Good mix of long and short holes, good technical course w/ lots of shade.
Cons: Alot of trees close to tee boxes and dirt tees. Can be hard to follow for first time play.
Other Thoughts: Needs much better signs for holes, baskets have one bar painted showing direction of next tee.

Pros: Good use of avaiable space, holes do offer a variety of challenges from trees, to an annoying stream (not much water just enough to get your disc wet), and an elevated basket, Most of the course is shaded due to the trees so playes nicely on a hot day. Not many throwers either time i went which is a positive
Cons: hard to follow if you havent played it before, each basket has the bottom part painted to show you to your next tee area, a single stripe, which is somewhat helpful unless somebody is being funny and turns the bottom which had happened on one of the holes (check out the pdga disc directory as it has a course map for it....very helpful) some of the fairways are very close together, and without the map may make it confusing on which basket you are suppose to throw to
Other Thoughts: has a hole called the fortress, be prepared to waste a stroke trying to get around to the basket
