Water fountains scattered about.
No tees, no signs. Baskets 4-9 far from 1-3. Many baskets near other recreation areas, and are difficult to see. Very flat.
Since there are no designated tee locations, the goal of this review is to help you find the baskets, and suggest possible tee locations (of course, you may tee from wherever you wish!)
Park in the parking lot, to the right near the corner of Stevenson and Gallaudet. Walk to the sidewalk on Gallaudet, near the entry sign, then look back to the right of where you parked - you should see a basket about 250' away, between some trees. This is basket #1 - tee off from the sidewalk. The next basket, just over 100' away, is marked #3. I suggest you walk past it to the right and play it last on the way back to you car. You'll soon see a basket on a small hill, with the football field/track fence behind it - I played this unmarked basket as #2. I threw from the discus circle, again making this about a 250' hole.
Now, go for a walk, keeping the fence to your right. As you reach the end of it, look to the far right corner of the basketball courts - in the trees behind them is basket #4. For the tee, I took a hard right, past the horseshoe pits, up the slope, then back down to another fence and left a bit. If you tee from here, you'll have about a 300' shot that has a bit of a tunnel at the start, then a left turn at the end. Basket #5 is just around the corner of the near tennis courts. If you tee off from the edge of the basketball/four-square courts, you'll have about a 300' hole.
Take a moment now to look at the line of trees forming the left/centerfield "wall" of the baseball field. Basket #6 is to the right, near the back of the tennis courts, unmarked basket #8 is to the left, and hidden basket #7 is between, in the middle of the treeline. Unmarked basket #9 is to the left of the batting cage.
To tee for #6, I simply went a little bit to the left of basket #5. This will make the hole about 350', and right-turning. To tee for #7, I went to the road near the corner of the near building, making it a short 125' left-turner with many trees guarding the approach. To tee for #8, I went to the tree on the opposite side of #7's basket, leaving about 150' to #8, surrounded by trees. For #9, just move a bit past #8's basket, and you'll have a 200' left-turn to the basket just on the other side of the batting cage.
Walk back to basket #2, and tee for #3 just before and below #2's basket, with some wooden logs in front of you. This will make a challenging 275' shot with a road and fenced-off buildings to your right, and the discus area to your left.
This course provides you with some basic raw materials - do with it what you can, and don't plan on playing when baseball is happening on the far field.
