Pros: Open shots on some holes that would be good for beginners.
Cons: Fairway along a barbed wire fence.

Cramped holes.

Hole on hill with fenced in water tower behind it by about 20-40ft.
Other Thoughts: Why on earth is it 10 holes? I had to look it up here after we finished 10 just to make sure that there weren't anymore holes since having 10 holes is just ridiculous. They could have easily made it an 18 hole course since it was clear they already showed no restraint for mushing some of the holes together.

Pros: Randall Oaks is a solid course and was very fun to play. The course features some nice elevation as well as a mix of wooded/open holes. Hole 3 was a great signature hole featuring a downhill finesse shot through the trees. I love shots like that. I also liked one of the later holes (maybe hole 5?) whose pin was perched right on top of a steep mound thing. The mound made the green play very fast and "parking" it next to the hole was tricky. The last hole was also a very fun one... another downhill wooded shot.

The park around Randall Oaks seemed to have a million things to do. There was a small zoo, picnic shelters, a pool (?), and maybe even tennis (?) I don't remember exactly, but this really seemed like the place to be, especially if travelling with family.

The course itself seemed pretty well kept, with very helpful signs directing the way (otherwise navigation would have been impossible).
Cons: The most obvious "con" to this course was that it was not at all isolated from the rest of the park. As mentioned, it was an awesome park with lots to do, so naturally it attracts a lot of people. Unfortunately, the course brought other park users into play pretty regularly, which is not fun/safe for anyone. Additionally, a lot of the course was quite cramped leading to several of the hole being right next to one another.

In addition to the safety/isolation issues, I also found some of the holes to be a bit bland. Hole two was a little putter shot that was very easy and one of the later holes was a weird dogleg that was completely blind with a busy road right behind the pin... not a fan.
Other Thoughts: While not very challenging, there was plenty of interesting disc golf here, so Randall Oaks is a great place to bring a newer or less serious player.

 Long, short, up, and down

Pros: Challenges all of a player's skills. Accuracy is tested by the wooded holes and the long wide-open holes test your power. Enough trees to keep things scenic and interesting. Holes going uphill and downhill. Brick tee pads. Chance to get an ace at #2 and #10. Course layout loops around, making it easy to go from #10 to #1 to play another round.
Cons: #7 is in an open field. Maybe some bushes would make it more interesting or at least picturesque. Kids and adults got in the way at #9, running and rolling down the side of the hill.
Other Thoughts: #4 runs uphill, but has overhanging tree limbs to make things a bit trickier. #7 is long and open, so you can test different grips, discs, and throwing techniques. If you miss #9, your disc may roll a long way downhill (happened to me).

Pros: - Course is set on the grounds of a multi-use park, making use of some hills, and some lightly forested areas. Lots of park users can be found here on a nice day, and they like to roam about. Possible interference for sure.
- Holes start off amongst a lightly wooded area, with #1-#3 and #10 each having several trees to contend with off the tee. There are multiple lines to be found, but they must be shaped well to get to the basket. A few obvious RHBH hyzers, and a bunch of straighter shots. #3 offers a long RHFH route or slight RHBH flex shot, both are good routes. #6 is a sharp right turn around a forest, with no other option to get around.
- Other holes are in the open, with little to no obstacles to get in the way. #4 has a low hanging branch, #9 has a guardian tree, otherwise these are just a test of distance over anything else.
- Elevation changes are present throughout the course, which really help to spice things up. #3 shoots down into a valley, #4 is a pretty steep uphill, #10 has a slightly elevated teepad, #9 plays uphill on the side of a hill; these are all pretty noticeable and really add to the fun factor. Helps keep the wide open holes interesting, especially #5 and #7.
- Good tees, baskets, and signage. Navigation is straightforward, with a sign to help find #5 and #10. Course loops around nicely, #10 finishes right by #1's teepad.
Cons: - While the open holes do have good character with the slope factor, they are still completely wide open and have no challenge other than distance. At least three holes fall into this category, and are kind of bland.
- Barbed wire fence to the left of #3 is definitely in play, especially if trying the FH route. Easy to reach because of the downhill, probably a pain to get the disc back for sure.
Other Thoughts: - This course has a lot to offer, with pretty good elevation changes and a good mix of forest and open shots. Some open uphill shots need good distance for any chance at a putt, and downhill shots in the woods need good accuracy. #3 offers a fun downhill shot through some trees, and #6 is a nice blind shot around the woods. Great for beginners, good for us regulars, probably a bit bland for the more experienced.

 Fun and Quick 10 Hole

Pros: - Beautiful well kept course
- Signs for every hole, not hard to navigate
- Good amount of parking
- Trash cans and bathrooms on site
- Several holes that feature elevation changes, 3, 4, 9, 10, and 5
- Let it rip on #7, par 5 with no obstacles
- Can be done in a half hour, if there is minimal wait
- You shouldnt lose any discs
Cons: - It is a very busy course that can cause some wait time
- The 10 holes could easily be 18 or even a more challenging 9 given the large space
- Fairly easy course with most of the holes being open of trees and even the wooded area is a very lightly wooded area
Other Thoughts: - Getting to the first tee can be tricky if it is your first time at the course. Do not park in the parking lot at the entrance or you will be in for quite a walk, instead go down the long gravel road to your left, follow the road around the corner and the parking lot is straight ahead. First tee is behind the parking lot off to the right.
- This is a 10 hole course so after 9 don't forget to keep walking over the road to finish at #10
- No water
- Randall road is not that bad, I did not notice it as a distraction and it is far enough away that it should not factor into your play unless you really overthrow
- My favorite holes are 3 and 4 because of the elevation and also 5 with the water tower in the background and elevated green
- Overall its a fun course to play and close to my area so I will keep coming back

 Ok Course

Pros: Good beginners course with a dog leg thrown in there. This would definitly be a good course for new players.
Cons: There should be 9 holes not 10. It gets too wet and muddy on the first three holes if it just finished rain.

Other Thoughts: They should put in 8 more holes or take away one hole. But other than that reasonable course.
