Pros: Tee box placement and general course layout are great; you hole out, you tee off less than 100 feet away. This course flows better than any I've played. You'll have no problem navigating it on your first visit. What I really like is the way the course plays around the parking lot; you're never more than a couple minutes walk from your car. Easy 30 minute solo rounds if you're in a hurry.

The multi-use park itself is very well maintained, and usually very quiet. Great park amenities; bandstand, pavillions, grills, ball diamonds, tennis & bball courts, horseshoe pits....and an 18 hole public golf course across the street.

This is the ULTIMATE beginner's course/practice course, as it's short and fairly open with a forgiving rough, never very busy, and designed in a way that will make you pick lines and develop shot shaping.

Good concrete tee pads... Shorter than some (haven't measured, but probably less than 10 feet long), but more than adequate for the short hole distances.

Local players try to keep alternate tee locations marked with paint on the grass, which basically turn this little gem into a full 18 hole course.
Cons: Very short.

Only nine holes.

Could use some drainage work and erosion prevention (valley on #1, a couple sinkholes on the edge of rough down #8 fairway, "pond" on #9 could all use attention).

A few holes play fairly close to playground equipment; #4, 5, & 6.
Other Thoughts: Par posted on the tee signs are laughable... Everyone I've met playing there just plays all holes as par 3's.

I'm sure more experienced players may find this course a bit too easy, as every hole is an ace run except #8, but I find it a fun, quick, perfect little pitch and putt playground.

-Review updated 12/6/13. First review was a bit too home-boy biased, and was coming from a noob that hadn't seen many courses... I still stand by a solid 3 disc rating here, they've done an excellent job with what they had to work with and continue to do an excellent job maintaining the course.

  Great Practice Course!!

Pros: I go to the college here and this nine hole course fits in perfect between classes, if your in a hurry you can get done in less than 30 min. All shots can be utilized on this course making a great place for a good practice round and make you feel good about your game.
Cons: Little kids in the park will sometimes pick up your discs and carry them with them. (this has happened to me three times in the hundreds of times I have played here) Really easy course, pars should be tougher. One par 3 is about 100 feet with another just as short. Good chances for an ace though!
Other Thoughts: Great practice course!!! Fun if your in the area!!
