Not Exactly The Course To Play By Yourself For The First Time Through!

Pros: "The Attraction" is located in Moore Park, which is a fairly large, sprawling park, which lies on both sides of Lakeshore Drive. The disc golf course is set in very compact area between the grassy lawn/soccer area and the less developed hiking/dog walking area.
There is a large, round, homemade sign at the street with the course's name carved in. It's kinda difficult to read. The start has a small kiosk with tourney and league information (two doubles events weekly). Something I've never seen on a course before, someone has even placed a working clock up on the upper end of the kiosk (Those weekly doubles events must start right on time here). There is a practice basket. There is also a picnic table here. The course features excellent patio block tee pads, some have extra landscaping work around them. Very nice! The tee signs are also a new feature, I've never seen before. The tee signs are old discs with the information written on them. They're just OK as some are faded and a little difficult to read.
There are sometimes two or three basket positions. One problem is you don't know which position the basket is currently set.
For being such a short course, the baskets were awfully difficult to spot, even when walking down to them. A couple were buried very deep in this thick brush. Holes 5 and 6 opened up into the grassy area of park, providing a change from the brushy thickness.
One feature I DID like about this course. On many of the tee pads, there is a couple of rocks set up or the patio bricks are raised slightly. They give you a nice little push off when starting your run-up.
Cons: Like everyone comments, the brush here is extremely thick and on some holes you're throwing right over or into this deep brush.
I played to the wrong basket once or maybe twice.
Some of the disc tee signs were hard to read or confusing.
Other Thoughts: I should have liked this course. It's the kind of short, wooded course that I normally really like. But instead, it frustrated me playing for the first (and only) time. Too thick of brush, blind basket placement. Sorry, not one of my favorites.

decent for whats its worth
Pros: Some challenging holes, what really makes some tough is the amount of brush on either side of the fairways which are minimal at best. Uses the terrain very well, which makes up for the length of the course
Cons: Small fairways, not long, tee pads are brick but adequate.
Other Thoughts: fun course by yourself, and small groups. not crowded
