Pros:
Bathroom. Water fountain.
Cons:
The tees are just dirt. The signs do not help orient you in the direction to throw -at times the sign is at the back of the tee area, at other times it is to the side, and yet at other times, it is just off the front. When combined with unmarked baskets which are very difficult to see, and the most visible basket often not being the one you should be playing, the result is a very difficult course for a first-time visitor to navigate.
Other Thoughts:
Course plays in the small open grassy areas in a wooded public park. Overthrow #2, and you'll encounter parked cars and/or people. Baskets 6&7 are near a flat area that kids will often be playing in. Basket 9 is near to where grilles and picnic tables are located.

The distance of the holes range from 106' to 283', with the average being just under 200'. Most holes are fairly flat. The two minor uphill shots are very straight, while the other holes all require a minor turn, usually at the end of the flight.

Tees-basket potential mismatches:
- From tee #2, most visible basket, to left, is #3. Basket #2 is to the right and down the hill.
- From tee #5, most visible baskets are #6 (left) and #7 (across). Basket #5 is down the "road", slightly right
- From tee #8, most visible basket is #9. Basket #8 is down the path to the left.

This course is suitable for introducing people to disc golf, hopefully by someone who knows the flow of the course, and when there aren't too many other park users. If it's a nice day and someone is hosting a large picnic near the open space where baskets 6&7 are located (like the day I played the course), your discs will most likely be hitting something that would rather not be hit!

Pros: -If you approach it as the equivalent of a 'pitch-and-put,' it may be worthwhile.
-Good baskets.
-Located in a decent park; lots of greenery.
Cons: -Way short. Only on a couple of holes will you need a driver.
-Other park users in the middle of some holes.
Other Thoughts: I didn't play any safari holes, and I reckon a knowledgeable local could show me a 2 or 2.5 disc course with safari tees.
