Pros: Dual tee pads at each holes make it seem like two courses in one! Signs at each pad with distance/par. Good elevation changes that make it challenging. Good variety of open/wooded holes. Baskets in good shape. Nice flow around the park from hole to hole. Park is well kept and there are many restrooms throughout the park.
Cons: Can be a bit challenging for new players. There are access roads all over the course that make for numerous OB possibilities.

Pros: Two courses in one park that is just a full day of disc golf. Alright well it looks like i am going to start with the blue course. The one thing about this course that it is impossible to over see is the great elevation changes. On a hole you are at the top of the hill throwing down and then on the next hole you are at the bottom of the hole throwing up. It is truely amazing. The one thing that i look for in every course is the elevation changes. This course definately had those. Out of all the courses that i have played this one has the best and the most elevation changes. Well now i have to mention the pins. I have never seen a course with blue top pins. This was so nice, there was no way you could get it confused with the white course. The concrete launch pads were really nice. They even had two tees per hole. They may not be that far apart, but it really does help at times. Normally when throwing you can see the pin. I have played many courses before where it is impossible to see the pin from the tee. Thankfully here that is not a problem.

This course is located in such a nice park. There are shelters everywhere. As there are playgrounds everywhere. I came on a day that looked nice and then turned into a thunderstorm very quick. So once it started to rain i went into a shelter. I waited the rain out for about half an hour and then went back out and finished the course. That is the benefit of having shelters located all over the course. On the day i went i was the only disc golfer in the whole park. There were many other people but no other disc golfers. So i didn't have to wait for anybody. So when you go you really will just fly through the course. There are signs laying all around the course navigating you to the next hole. It does get really confusing at some points so these signs really help. The blue and the white courses dont interfere with each other at all. You would think that with two courses in one park they might interfere with each other. That is for sure not the case at this course. It is really hard to lose a disc here. You dont go into the woods to often so it is challenging to lose a disc. Well that about wraps it up for the pros of this nice course, now lets enter the cons.
Cons: The cons here are very simple. Not many, but big ones. The one main one is that it is tiring. You are constantly walking up and down big hills. After about the tenth hole i was just dead. It takes alot out of you walking up and down hills. So i hope you are not planning on playing both courses in one day. I made that mistake and when i went home i could barely move a muscle in my body. Although they have next tee signs all over the course it is still very easy to get lost. Sometimes the next tee signs are covered up. So you have no clue where to go. I got lost a couple of times, but it is still pretty easy to find your way back. The sign at the tee is not helpful at all. All it shows is the distance of the pin from the tee. It doesn't show where its located or anything. I also had trouble with that at times. You really dont ever enter the woods. It isn't an open course but its not a wooded course. I really dont even know what to call it. They just have trees lying all over the course. Well there are not many cons, but there are a few big ones.
Other Thoughts: Wow this course is fun. Really the only word to describe it is fun. If you plan on coming up one day and playing both courses in one day i really dont recommend it. I did that and the next day i could hardly walk. It is very very tiring. But together both of the courses equal a whole day of disc golf fun. I personally like the white course better than the blue. Many others say that they like the blue better than the white. The blue is more challenging then the white. It also offers more than the white. I dont know why but i just like the white course better. If you are coming up and planning on just playing one course i would say read each review and decide yourself. If you are coming up and planning on playing both in one day i would say make sure you devote your whole entire day to disc golf. Well thats about it so when you come have fun and good luck.
