Pros:
*It's a beginner course so it's a good place to introduce families who live there to the game.
*Moderate elevation changes on most holes. 2 Flat/ 3 up/ 4 Down. The biggest elev differential is +18 ft.
*Online map. It's average, but essential for showing you where to look for the small tees.
*Decent fairway shape variety. 3 Straight/ 2 Left/ 4 Right
Cons:
-Navigation! There are no tee signs, so DO NOT try to play the course without the map or a guide. Without signs or scorecards the hole lengths are unknown.
-Feels creepy. Most fairways play too close to the buildings, and I felt kind of creeperish playing so close to the back side of people's apartments.
-Extremely short tees. Only 6 paver stones that are only 3' long x 2' wide.
-There's a VERY long walk from basket 9 back to your car.
-There's a very long walk from basket 5 to tee 6.
-Too short. More experienced players can reach most holes with a mid-range disc, so they'd get bored with it being short and relatively open. Most of the holes were about the same length.
-Limited terrain variety. Every hole is about the same-- grass with some scattered trees; buildings on one side and shule on the other side.
-Other than the map there are no other amenities: no scorecard, restroom, warm up basket, message board, or trash cans.
Other Thoughts:
Park by the pool that's not far from basket 3 and walk down the hill to the first tee.

I played as fast as possible because the whole time I thought that someone might kick me out. It's the kind of course that you just check it off as played and move on with no plans of returning.

A note about my rating: My rating is a subjective measure of my enjoyment of the course it is NOT intended to be a measure of the quality of the course. My ratings are given "on the curve" in relation to all other courses I've played.
