 boring and awkward

Pros: Ok for beginners.
Cons: Holes are very short. Not one hole is remarkable in any way. The worse thing is that the course is clearly an afterthought. This park is huge and is always filled with people playing softball/baseball and tennis. The disc golf course meanders randomly between the nooks and crannys that aren't being used for something else.
Other Thoughts: No reason for me to ever go back here.

Pros: This course is really close to a few schools as well as a park for people to play in and enjoy as well. This course would be a great beginners course for someone trying out new discs or learning the game for the first time. It offers some shots into the woods, and 2 with elevation changes which gives someone the opportunity to experience some new shot types.
Cons: For someone who has played before you can almost drive right up next to the pin on every hole if you have a good drive, making it a less challenging course overall. Some tees are a little tricky due to signs being lost or stolen.
Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a quick play you can probably get through the entire course in 20 min. if not sooner if you are strapped on time.

 Easy Course

Pros: A good beginner course, a quick play if you don't have much time.
Cons: It seems it was put in after the park was established. Many people come there for tennis and during the summer baseball games, marching band and track kids run through areas you play through. There aren't any decent holes for a good drive.
Other Thoughts: Fun to play if you want to warm up.

 Short but varied

Pros: This course has a nice variety of shots, although they are all fairly short. A low tunnel shot, shots into and out of the woods, a nice downhill shot. Cement tee pads are nice and the blue baskets are easy to see. Layout is easy to follow and it is a very quick play.
Cons: This course seems almost like an afterthought as it winds around tennis courts and ballfields. Park can be pretty busy and bad shots will interrupt someone's tennis or softball game. I felt like I was in the way while playing the course.
Other Thoughts: The course itself is really nice with a good variety of shots. When the park is empty it's a fun and quick play. However it's too busy with the other traffic going on in the park.

Pros: Good course for beginners. There are a few shots that present a challenge to all players, but for the most part, it is a very easy course. I thought this course was one of the easiest in terms of finding the next hole.
Cons: Short holes mean you don't really need to bring your driver. There are a few too many holes out in the open where there are absolutely no obstacles.

Pros: Nice course for working on your putting and midrange shots. Targets are nice and there are a few concrete tee pads. There are a few holes that help a person work on their precision shotmaking through tight windows.
Cons: Course is super short and I only use a mid-range and putter on this course.
Other Thoughts: They need to extend a few of the holes to 300+ feet so the average and above average players can warrant using a driver.

Pros: Nice mix of trees and open holes. Short, but with some obstacles. Decent course for a quick afternoon round.
Cons: Traffic. Park is heavily used, with tennis courts and high traffic areas coming into play.

 Surprisingly Diverse

Pros: This course is refreshingly diverse for a neighborhood nine. Hole 1 is a tunnel shot, 2 is a big hyzer (RHBH) around trees, 4 is a sharply uphill anhyzer, and 5 is a big (relatively speaking) drive down a hill. You have variations in distance, great use of trees, and a low-population area that hugs a community park. Kudos to the designer for a balance of layout usually found on strong 18s.
Cons: While the holes are diverse, they lose a few points for being too score-consistent. I'm going to throw the same shot on each one, and end up with a 3 about 80% of the time.
Other Thoughts: A perfect place to kill time if you're waiting to pick up a delayed traveler from the nearby Minneapolis/St. Paul airport, just minutes away!
