Pros: City park course that has a lot more to offer than meets the eye.

Front 9 plays like a typical city park course. Stand-out holes are a nice bomber to start out your round and #3 has a nice peninsula shot betwixt two branches of the small river that runs through the middle of Begg.

Back 9 is where this course starts to shine: first two holes along the bank of the river force you to throw RHFH or risk lost plastic (we had a few go in but fished 'em out) then out and over to the main street with a nice tunnel shot and an open-fielder, then a wicked downhill with the pin sitting inches from the brook.

Concrete tees for all holes are a plus, and there is considerable shade for a hot summer day. Basket bottoms were angled in a funnel shape so your disc fell to the bottom and out of the way for the other players in your group. Also made for easy plucking when moving on.
Cons: Front 9 is S O G G Y when wet. A few fairways under water. Not much variation on the first half; mostly throwing open with a few aged trunks as obstacles. Back-and forth design to the front 9 makes you feel like you've been there before.

80% of tee signs have been obliterated, which does not help on the front 9, as there are several chainstars in a single field.

Park clientele less than desirable.
Other Thoughts: Jekyll and Hyde feel to this one, folks. They made the best out of what they had; good use of the different parts of the park. I had some fun here, and came away impressed once I hit the back nine. Challenging without being daunting. I'd give it another whirl once the rain subsides.

Pros: Cement Tees, Well Marked, Good Variation of Holes, Easy to find, Didnt deal with any bugs, Every hole was in okay condition.
Cons: Not Maintained the greatest, Gets flooded easily, A few holes need some redesigning, Other people are walking around in the park so you may have to yell "Fore!" alot.
Other Thoughts: A pretty easy course, wouldnt be bad if it was in your back yard, but i wouldnt drive far to play it. Also on hole three, be careful, or be prepared to take a swim in the creek. :)
