Pros: Not crowded, and there are disc golf baskets.
Cons: Really short, no challenging shots, not a full course. Only need to bring your Roc and you'll be fine.
Other Thoughts: Any course is better than no course, but this is tiny, simple, and pretty boring.

  Small, narrow course.

Pros: The course has grass and a few trees, which can be hard to come by in Albuquerque. Each hole has a dedicated tee and basket. The hole layout is very straightforward and doesn't require crossing other holes. Baskets are all in great shape.
Cons: This is a small park and the course was clearly just stuck into it. The entire park is quite narrow and bordered by fenced-in back yards on both sides. This makes losing a disc a real possibility. A couple of holes had broken tee signs and the marker for 2 was completely gone, pole and all. The course layout was easy enough to figure out though as each tee was within feet of the previous basket. Holes are almost all quite short (most between 200 and 300 feet, with one 500+ exception) with very few obstacles. There are no maps or scorecards provided but the intact tee markers provide a diagram for that hole.
Other Thoughts: I would like to say this is a good course for beginners due to the short holes and lack of overall difficulty if it weren't for the fact that losing a disc into someone's back yard is such a threat on an errant throw. As it is, I'd say it's best simply as a place to practice some shorter shots if you're already in the neighborhood but definitely not worth a special trip.

Pros: Good confidence booster. Aces & birdies galore. Course plays in less than 20 minutes. It's better to have 9 baskets out there to offer some recreational activity than just another drainage ditch running through a subdivision.
Cons: Like the title says: simple and easy. Not a wide variety of shots. Boring.
Other Thoughts: If I lived in the neighborhood around the park, I'd be out there every day listening to the sound of birdie shots in the chains, but I'm not going to make the drive just to play there again.
