Pros: The course winds through a multi-use park on private property. the entire course plays over well manicured grass with a few mature trees to provide obstacles. This is a pretty easy course, but they do a decent enough job at forcing some creative shots in places.

Navigation is a breeze here. The tee signs are nice and all are in tact, and all of the baskets are marked. The next tee box is always very close to the basket of the prior hole. This probably should be a con, but since it seems like no one ever plays the course it isn't an issue.

The baskets, while being fairly older, are Mach II's and catch discs very well.

The course provides some respite from the boredom of attending conferences at the Q Center all day.
Cons: The tee boxes are hurting. they are limestone, which in itself isn't a con, but they are very small and not maintained properly. Many have eroded and are not usable. Others are not level.

on a few holes, the course plays very close to some soccer fields and tennis courts. Again, not many people seemed to be out there, so I didn't take off as much for this as I have for other course. If this course ever got busy, there would be some serious safety hazards between the park's other uses and the proximity of the tee boxes to the pins. But I don't foresee this ever becoming an issue.

there is a lot of wooded property on the grounds, but none of it is used for the course. It would have been nice to see them use at least some of it, but I don't think they were trying to make this course any harder than it is. There is a lot of potential on the property for a really nice course. Unfortunately, this course leaves you rather blah.
Other Thoughts: this is a private course. The Q Center, where this course is located, is a conference center and concrete retreat type of place. While this course is not that exciting, it's much better than what goes on inside those buildings.

If you're at the Q Center, by all means get some rounds in, but for anyone that can't get in, don't worry, you're not missing anything special.
