Pros: The best course in the area doesn't have a whole lot to offer, unless you're looking for ace runs and a chance to break par, this is the course I was finally able to break into the 40's on with a 49. Rather simple and straightforward; throw about 230 feet on every hole to the basket, avoid the trees.

Chance to break par. If you're having trouble breaking even or better, give this course a try!

Ace Runs. Every single hole has a decent chance of an Ace (if your arm can handle the 380 number 12).

Well laid out. Even though it's a relatively simple course, I found that each hole had a unique challenge.

Tidy. Garbage cans are available around the perimeter of the course, though not directly in relation to the holes, it's a short walk to throw away your trash, it seemed relatively well maintained and there was not much trash around.

Number of people. I basically had this course to myself, there was a few other groups out, but I never came into contact with them.

Navigation. Though no map or signage was provided, each tee is placed strategically near the previous hole's basket, it was not difficult to find my way around at all.
Cons: Variety of holes. Though each hole had a challenge in its own right, they all seemed very similar, about 240 feet avoid the trees, a RHBH hyzer was sufficient on nearly every hole.

Tees. Dirt tee pads were rather sufficient for this course, I never found myself even thinking that concrete pads would have mad it better - but I guess there's always room for improvement here.

Fairways. The course was pretty much wide open, with many trees dotting the fairways, but the grass was not well manicured and skipping was nearly impossible.

Length. As said before, every hole was 240 feet or so, with the exception of the 380 foot number 12.

Multiuse park. Again, it's great that disc golfers and other recreationists can exist in harmony, but it was slightly annoying when a family was using the hole 14 fairway as a playground for their small child. I just waited for them to move on and it didn't delay my game much at all.

Signage. Each hole had a tee marker with at least a hole number on it, some of them had a distance written in marker on it, who knows how accurate that distance rating is, there was no rough sketch of the hole or direction to the next hole (this never really was a problem, as it was relatively easy to navigate).
Other Thoughts: A fun pitstop if you're in the area, I wouldn't go out of the way to play this course unless you're looking for an opportunity to break par, or maybe you're looking for your first ace!

Favorite Hole:

Number 9. The large trees in the fairway give you a small window to view the pin through, go ahead and shoot through that window if you have pinpoint accuracy, I took the wide angle approach with a sweeping hyzer skip to the basket, if I could have only pushed it out farther it would have been a beautiful skip in ace!
