Pros: -Nice mach 3 baskets.
-Tees are marked.
-Chances for aces and deuces every hole.
-No chance for a lost disc.
-Good for beginners or middle schoolers.
-At a school so it gets the sport out.
-Good use of the limited trees
-Every present brookings wind makes this course a bit harder
-Good parking.
-A few blind tees.
Cons: -Very short
-Not too challenging
-Can't play when kids are around
-Not scenic
-Just posts in the ground for tees
-Always windy.
Other Thoughts: This is a very short pitch and put course. There is no lengths listed on the course but number 9 is probably about 300 and is the longest. The others are between 100 and 200 feet with number 2 maybe being 200+. If you want more challenge make everything OB; track, over fences, parking lots, yards, sidewalks, etc.

Course Guide: (What I do when I play here)
Hole 1: Tee off from just in front of the drain on the cement.
Hole 2: Walk around bathroom building and play from the cement on the east side of building. Hole is behind the 2nd fat coniferous tree
Hole 3: Tee off from the worn area about 40 feet past hole 2
Hole 4: Tee off from the hillside near the edge of the light tree line.
Hole 5: Walk to the track from hole 4 and tee of from there
Hole 6: Same as above
Hole 7: Same as above
Hole 8: Walk to the southern most point of the track and tee off from there
Hole 9: Walk to the drainage pipe and tee off behind that on the sidewalk.

Pros: -This course plays very quickly. It is possible to finish a round in 15 min.
-Plenty of short, technical shots.
-Never crowded
Cons: -Rather boring layout
-No signage (as of 8/14/09), although it is pretty easily navigable.
-Lacks the scenery we all enjoy as frolfers - it is based in a residential area.
Other Thoughts: Any hole on this course could be an ace; this course works great as a "warm-up" course.

All in all, this course is fun to play once in awhile for a little diversity.
