Pros: - Course is set in a moderately hilly park that has some trees here and there. Kind of close to a walking path at times, but there shouldn't be much else going on here.
- Although there aren't a lot of trees here, they are used pretty well. #1 forces a hyzer, other holes take away any sort of hyzer route (short of a spike hyzer); there is some thought required at the very least. #8 has a tree right in the middle, forcing a left or right curve. A forest borders one hole to snag RHBH shots that hyzer too much as well.
- Elevation is a constant factor here, in some way. The longest hole has the biggest uphill slope, to make it tougher. #8 is also noticeable uphill, with a sloping green by the woods. Other holes are slightly downhill which makes running the aces all the easier. #9 has a sloping fairway that will let high hyzers scoot pretty far from the basket.
- Good teepads (When dry at least), good baskets, and great signs. Map in front, navigation is a breeze.
Cons: - Apart from a handful of trees, there is really nothing to any of the holes. True beginners may have a tough time getting a deuce with a blocked hyzer route, but that is about the extent of it. Part of the challenge is not overthrowing the holes for most players.
- Very short hole lengths overall; people breaking 300' will have no chance to air one out unless it's a putter.
Other Thoughts: - An awesome course for beginners to learn the ropes on shaping basic lines and dealing with some elevation changes. More experienced players can work on the basics, too, with slower discs of course.
