Pros: The course sits in a small mostly flat area of a larger community park wedged in between the community center, an elementary school and a ball field. There are plenty of scattered trees to provide some obstacles to throw around. At the beginning is a course rules sign as well as a empty kiosk. The signs are small metal ones with the basic needed information. The tees are natural but they do have a front board. And the front board has the hole # on it. The baskets are Discatchers with the yellow band and the small numbers on them.

There are both beginner and intermediate tees. I would say the course plays as a fun little pitch and putt from the beginner tees and as a recreational level from the intermediate tees. For example, # 1 is 198' from the Beginners and 306' from the Intermediate tees.

# 7 is the signature hole here. Your throwing down between an alley of trees maybe 40 feet apart. The hole is 245' from the beginner tee and 343' from the back tee. Keeping your drive straight for that long is fairly tough.

# 9 is 219'/312' straight down to a slightly elevated basket.
Cons: I would be concerned with # 7 throwing from the intermediate tee psd when there is a ballgame in progress. There isn't much room for error there.

There isn't much else wrong with this little course. I think it's just a nice, little basic park course. Good for families, beginners, casual play.
Other Thoughts: This is a perfect little course for us course baggers. It's easy to get to. Easy parking. Takes 20 minutes to play. Flat and easy! No sweat! No mess! In & out. Wham Bam! Thank you Mamn!

 Beginner friendly

Pros: Well cared for park with 9 holes, 2 tees per hole. Has signs and brick work to mark tees. Despite being flat, use of trees makes some holes harder. Short holes make for a good learning course with varying shots.
Cons: With the 2 tees per hole you can play a round of 18. The 2nd tees do offer a different look to the course, but not enough. Mulching or concrete tees would be nice as some tee boxes can be pretty muddy with rain. Also plays close to playground on Hole 2, could be problem on busier days.
Other Thoughts: Almost too clean of a park. I now have silver paint on a couple discs, someone had recently painted the chains on baskets.

Pros: nice park.
great for beginners or warm up
Cons: pond between 5-6 is a mud pit, not to bad today, but with rain would be weighing down shoes.
Other Thoughts: Got 2 rounds in today during some down time while working in the area. Introduced a co-worker to the sport. This is a great course for that, by the end of the first round he almost had a birdie with a couple close calls on second round.

would like to see water in the pond

Pros: New course and good to practice at. Not a big challenge but is still fun.
Other Thoughts: I work at this park on the maintenance crew. Course is still being developed and will continue to improve.

-Information kiosk is coming soon
-Bathrooms are on northside of Rox Arena.
-Scorecards available in Rox Arena and map is on them. These will be moved to kiosk when installed.
-Leagues are being developed for adults and beginners.
-Looking into changes with the teepads.

Just thought I'd share this info with everyone.
