Pros: Kiwanis DGC at Bluegrass park is a beautiful open field of grass in the midst of a really new looking housing subdivision. The park is well maintained and the course amenities are relatively nice with tee signs and very visible basket number plates to assist in navigation. The baskets themselves though were likely designed with ultimate 'frisbee's' in mind rather than disc golf as the side iron pieces have gaps too large to contain smaller diameter discs. In addition, the baskets have only one set of eight outer chains which makes for a lot of fly-throughs and bounce-outs. I've attached a picture of one of these homemade baskets which, besides the catching problems, are very sturdy looking targets. Nearly all of the course is completely wide open with no places to lose discs and no places really where a player can find a 'bad lie'. On the few holes which have a tree or two, large out-and-around hyzers make for easy birdies. This would be a great park for families to get to know the game or for completely new players to try out throwing for the first time. After even a few rounds though, even green players are going to probably want to head down the road to Corbin or Cherry Hill.
Cons: Because of the lack of any meaningful tree coverage, the only teeth this course has are found on the holes near road or sidewalk where an errant throw could skip OB. Other than this, you are really mostly looking at a wide open field with a few small 'bumps' of elevation - the biggest challenge you'll likely find is ensuring that your disc will not fall through the basket! The other main problem with this course is that Bluegrass Park is very much a multiuse facility with walking paths, a playground, and a basketball court which are just close enough to some holes to create concern.
Other Thoughts: Check out the Kiwanis Disc Golf Course if you are heading over with the family both so they can play frisbee and enjoy a great park for a picnic. For those looking for any sort of challenge though, you'll be much better served by any of the other area courses.

Pros: Very clean park in a nice neighborhood, this is a fun course if you want to bring the kids along too. Very easy to follow with nice tee signs. Even though this is a park course there are some longer holes here so you might want to bring one driver. No chance of losing a disc, this is an all grass course.
Cons: This is a shared course with little kids playing on the toys there and when I played it there was a lot of watching and waiting for the other park users. The baskets are a little funny and don't catch the disc properly. The course is open and doesn't challenge you very much.
Other Thoughts: As the other reviewers have mentioned there are other courses in the area that are much more challenging that is not much of a drive, but I am glad there are courses like this to play as sometimes my whole family has a picnic or barbeque and then goes and plays disc golf and they don't want to play gold level pro parks.
