Pros: It's a free course, put in by someone who just wanted to add a few holes to the local options. A couple of the holes offer some more interesting shots.

2 teeing areas exist on every hole, and some of the pro holes are really long. Not much chance of losing a disc as the course is fairly open.
Cons: Mostly open throws. But it helps you work on certain parts of your game.

There are really no tee pads, but essentially just small signs you throw from. It's a church course, so it's essentially unavailable on Sunday as well. (Not really a con, but thought it should be mentioned).

It's only 11 holes, so doesn't really translate to me with my golfing background. This one feels like a game, not golf when doing this.
Other Thoughts: This was one of the first courses I played when I started. It's a good learning course as there isn't much danger on any of the holes, but there is some obstacles that must be avoided.

Most holes aren't overly long, especially from the am tees which I use nearly exclusively. It can be played pretty quickly, and is really close to another beginner friendly course in the area (Ballard Park)

Pros: This course goes around the back side of a large church. It was designed by a local player to basically give the members of the church a course to play and learn. The baskets are in good shape and there are 3 sets of tees on every hole except hole 7. The shortest tees are for kids and novices. There are a few holes that will challenge an experienced player, but overall there is just not much to work with. It is a wide open course with several holes you can just grip and rip it on or practice your mid range and putter shots on the shorter tees.
Cons: There simply is not much to this course other than what it was designed. The tee pads are all natural with no tee signs. You have to look for the bricks on the ground, which make this course very difficult to navigate your first time through.
Other Thoughts: The wide open nature of this course and the fact that it is empty most of the time, allows me to go to this course to practice throwing distance and working on different types of shots. I basically use it as my practice ground. If you are passing through this area, you will be better served playing Old Warrior Run at Trace State Park or Veterans Park. Ballard Park would be an option if you are a newer player.
