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.

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.

 Winter Rules at Central Park

Pros: Well maintained;
Nice tees;
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).

Pros: Practice basket near parking lot with marked incremental distances

Well maintained course includes wood chip greens and regularly mowed fairways

Course flows clockwise

Many open holes to let it rip and practice shots without worry of losing a disc

Concrete tee pads with marked hole # and distance (some are wearing off or illegible)

Aside from the predominantly flat course, there are a couple of more interesting holes. Hole 7 has one throwing around or over the crest of a hill toward a blind target and hole 8 shoots off the top of the hill. Hole 8 is labeled 400', but plays horizontally more like 310'.

Of the times I have played at Central it hasn't been too busy, but enough players to keep a steady flow.
Cons: Hole 9 can be hazardous to children playing nearby as there is a bike path running parallel. The park building on the right is something to try and stay clear of as errant shots could hit someone by surprise if your disc wraps around the building on the fade.

Most holes are generally long and open with a scattering of mature trees, which can make the course uninteresting for those looking for more tight, wooded shots.
Other Thoughts: On the whole Central has a good basic,beginner-friendly, well-kept course, and I would recommend stopping by if you are in the area.

If you happen to get your disc caught up in a tree use a rock from one of the parking lot drainage culverts by hole 2 to get it down.

Pros: Clean course with no bugs, nice and open with some trees. love the sledhill hole. Was a longer course then I thought it would be.
Cons: pretty easy course, no real changes from hole to hole. Really not all that much to complain about though.

Pros: Has some holes that will test your distance and a fun downhill shot on hole 8.

Has a practice basket with marked distances that make it ideal for practicing your putting game.
Cons: Busy park, sometimes there are kids in the way of the pin.

Not too much variety, most holes are pretty wide open.
