great course for teaching others
2 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: -If you are trying to teach somebody new, or trying to learn a new mold, this is the place I would suggest.
-This course runs in a clockwise fashion, so navigation is a non-factor.
-The clubhouse for the adjacent golf course has discs for sale if aforementioned new player decides they want to purchase their first disc (marked-up prices, but hey, supply and demand economics...).
Cons: -Course runs parallel to some roads, so hyzer slicers get punished (could be a pro if you're sadistic/dislike the people you play with)
-Watch out for disc thieves! I personally had my teeshot, a DGA SP Hurricane, stolen on hole 7, which is a blind shot. I advise using a spotter system.
-Hole 9 is sometimes a shooting gallery consisting of oblivious small children.
Other Thoughts: This is the course I played my first round at, way back in 2002 (when it ran counter-clockwise, way better course back then IMO) so it will forever hold a place in my heart. Aceable holes include 1, 3, 6, 8, and 9 (I speak from experience), but I did witness a guy ace hole 7 with an annybombed G* Destroyer (amazing) so I guess you can add 7 to the list.

9er worth the timer
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -nice cement teepads with very large asphalt surrounds (previously marked for each hole but currently worn off)
-easy flow/navigation with a good mix of holes for what land is available from longer wooded shots to shorter open approaches
-hole 8 is a fun wide open 400'~ downhill shot worthy of a few drives for the "chubby" ace run :)
-beginner friendly while still enough to the course to make it fun for more advanced players specially trying to hit 2's or the possible ace runs on 1,3,6,8,9
-ample parking within multi-use park offering playground and other activities as well as pavilion/shelter for parties
-solid baskets with well groomed landscape and mature trees scattered throughout
-marked off practice basket area
-wood chips around baskets
Cons: -worn hole markings with no signs other than hole 1 which you could miss all together the first time being there are 2 parking lots and the disc golf starts within the shared golf course parking lot next door. (Park there if you don't want to walk to hole one or park in the main area and walk south to the tee past the first basket.)
-can have heavy pedestrian traffic and walkers along sidewalk that surrounds park
-first few holes run along busy roads but not really issue unless you threw some horrible hyzer slices
-can get flooded in some spots and baskets 7/8 can be removed or not playable in winter due to sledding from hill.
Other Thoughts: Nice "centrally" located family park with multi-uses and a solid disc course course for testing out your new disc or practicing different shots/consistency and putting on the practice basket. You could really improve your game playing here a lot and making a routine out of some holes/lines/angles due to really no punishing landings but for sure ideal lines to the basket/landing areas and a good chance to shape some lines as well as throw rollers being an all grass park. One of the better 9 hole courses in the area surrounded by them. this and eagles edge make for a good combo to work on your shots and discs.

Pros: some long holes, and throwing from the top of the hill was fun.
Cons: everything is wide open except the second hole. and even that isn't that tight...
Other Thoughts: seems like they could have designed it better. but then again it is a city park with not that much trees

Pretty solid 9
Pros: Easy to navigate. The putting practice circle feet length stones are awesome. Cool off the hill shot. Hole length is stated, good way to see how far you are throwing. Good 9 hole executive.
Cons: Not too difficult. Its in a park so there is always people walking around that can get in the way on a few holes, but nothing horrible.
Other Thoughts: Few more trees or better tee placement might make it more challenging but its a worth stopping in course if your in the area.

Pros: Good place to get your feet wet if it is your first time playing. You have to try to lose a disc, unless your throw drops the disc in the back of a moving pick-up.
Cons: Can get crowded at times with other players as well as patrons. Maybe throwing your disc in the street can be a problem as well.
Other Thoughts: On hole 7 up and over the hill is what i've found works for me. On hole 8 try to stay low coming off the hill.

Good solid course
Pros: Love the practice putting hole with the distance markers! Convenient parking, your game starts and ends near the lot.
Hole #8 is definitely the signature hole. Practice getting your Ace here!
Cons: Pretty vanilla course, no surprises here. I wouldn't play this course day in and day out, but it's nice variety if you regularly tour the city courses.
Other Thoughts: I remember the original course layout, and thought it had some better technical lanes before the current layout.

Pros: Nice flow to the course. Great layout for how big the park is. Some decent elevation, nice variety of easy/tough shots. Can play a round fairly quick. Usually not very busy.
Cons: Fairly short, pretty easy if you play it a handful of times. A lot of activities in park area (grilling, playground, baseball, etc.)
Other Thoughts: Nice easy short course to play if your in the area!!

Good for quick rounds
Pros: Like the way how it's easy to find the tee's. About 5/9 holes have ace potential. This course is great for beginners like me because it's not very challenging.Well maintained course and not a lot of trash on the ground. Very nice putting practice basket that go from 2-40ft in 2ft intervals around it.
Cons: If you're a skilled player you may find this course bland and boring. Busy street on hole 1 should'nt be a problem but I've seen people nearly hit cars. Hole 7 is taken out for the winter (one of the more challenging holes). You have to watch out for people on several holes, it seems like some people are very unaware of the course. This course can get busy and you might have to wait ( i would know cause I live 3 miles away) Last week (FEB 19) we went to play here because there was no snow and there was 3 groups waiting to play ( and thats only winter ).
Other Thoughts: If you are around Brooklyn Park and looking for a quick round i would definitely recommend this course but if you had time to spare then just drive the extra 10mins to elm creek

Winter Rules at Central Park
Pros: Well maintained;
Nice putting practice hole with distance stones up to 40';
Easy access to the park;
Course starts and ends next to the golf course parking lot;
Plenty of tree hazards, but without much risk of losing a disc;
Holes are well marked;
Holes 4 and 5 are nice back-to-back par 4;
Hole 8 tees off a hill to the basket 400' below - ace-able (maybe someday).
Cons: Hole 7 is at the bottom of a sled hill, so has been removed for the Winter sledders.
Other Thoughts: I skip hole #7 (the basket is missing anyways), and play the practice putting basket as hole #10. I've measured using my GPS 307' from the ballpark dugout to the basket (call it a par 3).

good beginner course
Pros: Very wide open space, great for beginners learning to throw with more control. Great for anyone practicing roller shots, or basically anything you're not use to.
No tight fairways, nothing all too technical. It's an all right course for a quick 9 hole round.
There's only one place you might lose a disc.
There's a practice basket for putting, or "secret" basket 10.
Cons: Most shots are pretty straight.
Not a lot of difficulty. More advanced players will find this course boring.
Not many elevation changes. There's two shots based around a hill.
Nothing technical. The most technical shot really needed here would be a turnover driver.
The park is surrounded by busy roads.
Other Thoughts: Central park is a fine course, it's surrounded by some pretty busy streets, so a bad shot could make your disc end up right in the street, as I almost experienced today. Great for beginners, advanced players will find it to be nothing special whatsoever. Some great opportunities for big drives, but this whole course could easily be played with a midrange and a putter.
