Pros: -fast play
-easy access, close to the Merritt parkway
Cons: -course not easy to find for first time goers
-course not very well maintained these days
-trees everywhere with high vegetation, best to throw strait
-lack of signs
-natural tees; roots disturbing ur shot
-hole 5 is not obvious from 4 basket
-blue, white and red markers r not all obvious, if they still there at all
-bees, spiders and other insects throughout
-course not in a loop have to walk back to ur car after 12th hole
-sign for hole 9 still broken
-map does not include holes 11 and 12; its not well designed (not to scale)
Other Thoughts: this was the first course i played as a disc golf enthusiast... its situated in the woods next to waveny park, not easy to spot if u never been there... Locate the sign "waveny park disc golf course" on Laphan Rd and park next to the pool... even with a map its not all that helpful... IMPORTANT: pay attention to the sign on each tee to determine the direction of the next tee

the second time i played there i still had a hard time locating hole 5... on hole 6 i flunked my tee drive way right and was attacked by beehive trying to throw my disc, had to abandon the course immediately... there is also spiders and ticks and other things u rather avoid... so shoot strait and stay out of trouble... i will be playing here again though... since this is the closest course to where i live and hope to see my game improve

i wish to see this course be an 18 hole course one day... it definitely has room for 6 more holes which would make the course a lope... in the mean time, i created an aerial map of the course using gps in my phone...

Pros: 3 tee pads, some level of challenge.
some shot variety and somewhat attractive holes with lots of wildlife; I saw deer, chipmunks, and even a coyote.
decent signage and chainstar baskets.
Across the street and isolated from the rest of the park activities.
Cons: The most challenging part of the course was the navigation. baskets are not numbered, so even if you find one you have no idea where you are until you find the tee. After hole 4 there was no way to find 5. Several times the trail splits with no navigational signs. After 8 there was no sign to 9 and no sign to 10, but 10 was visable if you looked hard enough. Holes 11 and 12 are not even on the course map.

Only 12 holes and hole 12 ends way back on the other side of the dog park and pops you out at the main road leaving you with a long walk back to the car.

Lack of maintenance, grass was knee high in many areas.

some tee pads are getting over grown. a few reds and whites were nearly gone.

Many of the 3 tee pads were shared tees, so there was not 36 individual shots.
Other Thoughts: 12 is an unusual number of holes. Add this to the navigational issues and shin high grass and it pushed this average course to a "reasonable" course.
