Pros: The course plays through a large park, with a handful of holes out in the open and in the grassy park area along the lake. These shots have some length, including a dogleg par 4 shot that offers a chance to really air out a drive. A couple holes play near the lake, offering risky routes over the water or longer safe routes that make a birdie nearly impossible.

The rest of the course plays through fairly dense woods, with enough trees to define some technical lines and plenty of underbrush to punish errant drives. There are chances for recovery shots, but you'll have to get creative if you're off the fairway. There is a decent mix of left and right turning shots in the woods that call for a variety of different lines.
Cons: The wooded shots are mostly pretty short, and can feel a little repetitive at times. The blue tees offer a bunch of really ridiculous lines. Many of them feel added on, and don't have a legitimate shot from the tee. It's frustrating when the best shot is a 50' layup to the red tee and a drive from there. The tees themselves are awful, they aren't marked in any way and the areas around the signs are full of rocks, ruts, and roots.

There are some major safety issues here, with roads and paths in play and lots of people hanging out in the fairways near the lake. The signs are pretty useless outside of the hole number, some of the distances seemed off and the hole layout was just a squiggly line that had little to do with the actual fairway shape and gave no indication of where to throw.
Other Thoughts: Beginners would likely find this course to have some fun spots and some frustrations. The holes are a pretty reasonable length, and the longer shots are open enough that they don't punish less accurate throwers. More experienced players will find the red tees pretty easy and the blue tees frustrating without offering legitimate disc golf challenges.
