 SHORT COURSE!

Pros: Ace run on every hole!
Good First time Kids course
Good for children under 8 years of age
Cons: WAY too short of holes
- given each tee position is essentially a jump putt (no joke) it is too short... i think one hole was just over 70 ft... and the average hole is just over 100 feet.


no challenge in the holes at all
- some may compare this to "putt putt" or mini golf reletive to regular ball golf.... however it is just not comparable because the holes have no challenge (if there were windmills and bridges and clown mouths that you had to use to get to the hole then i would understand the comparison much more haha... just kidding)



Other Thoughts: This course location has sooooo much potential and it is actually a fun place to go to make up your own holes. If the course design used the pond/lake that is next to the course, or played into the nearby trees a little bit more it has the opportunity to be a great course.

In my opinion, dont waste your time here, given you can practice putting at another nearby course (or in your backyard trowing at a tree :P...) and have a much more enjoyable time

Pros: - Clean, well maintained park - very pleasant, relaxed setting.
-GREAT course for introducing young children to disc golf.
- Good for practicing putts and approaches (even on a lunch break)!
- No reason to wait at all: very light traffic and, everything's close together, so you can easily skip a hole or two and come back to them.
- Decent tee signs with distance clearly indicated.
- Great for finding out just what you can do with your putter (seriously)!
- Chance of disc loss extremely low (but possible if you go nuts and overthrow these short holes).
- Baskets are in fair shape.
Cons: - Not a serious disc golf course: If you call yourself a disc golfer, the ONLY purpose this course serves is as a practice putting green.
- Tee boxes made from railroad ties filled with wood chips. Plain grass would be an improvement.
Other Thoughts: I mean this quite literally: This is to Disc Golf what Putt-Putt is to real golf. The only disc you'll need here is a putter (although you could use a midrange for hole # 7). Drivers should be prohibited on this course.
I can't even say it's a beginner course for adults - nearby Bay Court or Fire Fighters are much more suitable for adults (even for a first time out).

HOWEVER, if you want to work on your short game, this is a great place to do so. You can break out your putter and get tons of practice on putt and approach in 30 mins.

This is also an EXCELLENT place to introduce young kids to disc golf: nothing intimidating, all the baskets are right in front of you and nary pot smoker to be found - EVER! (only a complete idiot would light one up with the police station less than 1000 ft away on the same piece of city property).

 Pitch 'n' Putt

Pros: Good place to practice short game. 9 baskets in small park with some trees to provide hazards. No chance of losing discs. No nasty schule.

Provides a fun introduction to the sport for beginners.
Cons: The property is very small and the course shares the land with other park users. There's potential for players and other park users to get hit by discs. This is a particular concern as the park attracts families with small children.
Other Thoughts: Remember: Don't be a dirty disc golfer. If you pack it in, pack it out!
