Pros: -Good wooded holes
-Benches at mostly every hole
-Baskets in good shape
-Ample parking
-Other park facilities on site
-Good use of what elevation changes are available
-Good, long cement tee pads
Cons: -Most holes require the same type of shot (fade to left at the end)
-Only shorter course I've played is Wabun Picnic Area, this course is incredibly short
-Erosion will become a problem soon
-Most tee signs are missing
Other Thoughts: I wanted to like this course more than I did because it has some nice wooded holes that force you to make accurate throws. That being said, the course is just too short for it to really matter. You can make a terrible tee shot and still have a relatively easy time getting to the basket for a 3. The course is so short that you will not need any disc other than your putter. Don't get me wrong, the course isn't bad as there aren't a lot of courses in the area and it is at least a little different than a lot of the short suburban courses; but it's not a course I would go to more than a handful of times.
The park itself is decent; there's some other facilities on site and ample parking. There is a bench at the tee pad for every hole and also a post for a sign. I recall only seeing two signs up, the rest were missing. I don't know if this was due to vandalism or they simply weren't up; but either way it's not terribly important. You can easily see every basket from the tee so there shouldn't be any questions as to where you need to throw. There are no signs dictating where the next hole is but it was easy enough to follow the trodden path to the next hole. The baskets themselves were in decent enough shape, none were showing excessive wear and tear. There was some garbage strewn about on the course, but it wasn't excessive by any means. I've seen much worse. There were some teenagers (the types that have a tendency to vandalize and otherwise ruin a course) hanging around, but it didn't seem to be a problem there so I guess they don't follow the stereotype. Always a positive.
The holes themselves mostly fade to the left at the end, so it's an easy fit for most throwers. This is a good course to practice some of your shorter, more accuracy driven approach shots; although you'll be doing it from the tee pads because of the shortness of the course. If you're looking for more variety of shots required I'd find a different course as you'll find yourself needing nothing but a normal RHBH throw. The teepads are in very good shape, they are nice level cement pads with more than enough length. There is a little bit of erosion here and there on the course but nothing that is out of control...yet. Some work will have to be done eventually to keep it from becoming bad, but it's not at that point yet. There is a little bit of elevation change that is utilized on several of the holes to add some variety. There are a couple of holes that are a bit close together which could become a safety issue if the course is busy. All in all, this was a very average course that makes good use of the very minimal space devoted to it.

Pros: - good use of elevation changes
- fun layout on a few holes
- very quick play, and not busy
- creative layout for such a small park
- beginner friendly, but still a fun challenge for others as well
Cons: - nothing longer than about 240 ft
- some holes feel forced due to limited space
- tree stumps sticking up are hazardous
- no need for anything longer than a midrange for sure
Other Thoughts: we are from out of state, and happen to be in the area. we looked this course up online and stopped by for a quick round. very fun little course just to goof around and practice the short game. if you are in the area and have an hour, swing by and play a couple of rounds, it is a fun little course. Not worth driving much out of your way though.

Pros: - A short enough course that I can go through 3 rounds in under an hour
- Not a very busy area
- Nice mix of woods and elevation
- An easy starter course for beginners
Cons: - Trash is left on the course even when their are trash cans around
- A hangout for some hooligans
Other Thoughts: A course with a nice blend of hills and trees. An excellent course for newer players.
