Pros: -Cement tees
-Reasonable signage at the start
-Good variation in length on this course. Not too many short holes and the long ones aren't ridiculous either.
-Nice mature trees as obstacles
-Won't lose a disc on this course
-Good amenities, parking, safety, bathrooms, shelter, a nice overall city park.
-A little elevation makes for some faster greens and tricky approaches, nothing too scary though!
Cons: -No signage on holes.
-Targets aren't all the same. You have to be careful with your putting.
-It is kind of hard to find your way around sometimes. Flow isn't the greatest.
-Only the first few holes are truly free of other park users. After that you throw around playgrounds, ball fields, shelters, and benches. There is a sign that says you can't play during ball games and I wouldn't throw if there were kids on the playground.
-The park manager guy thought I got to the park too early and was not overly nice in telling me so.
Other Thoughts: When you get into the park drive all the way to the back and hole 1's tee as well as the course map is way in the back along the right foul line.

This park was alright. It fits into the typical, multi-use city park category. It is pretty fun but can't be played all the time and might not be too challenging. I would play it if in the area but I wouldn't travel too far to play it.

Pros: This course is more of a fun course to play that is in a small town. The course does have a few good holes on it. The tournament layout is definitely a fun one.
Cons: The fact that parts of the course weave around and through parts of a ball diamond and playground, means that it is prone to have lots of disruptions or make it unplayable at times.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun course to play once or twice a year and that is about it.

Pros: Interesting shots. Good balance of shots and some decision making. Nice setting in mature trees with lots of shade available. Large professionally painted course map at #1 tee.
Cons: Sometimes forced to throw over other facilities like b-ball and tennis courts, ball fields, concession stand, etc... A mixture of different targets, mostly older Mach 2 and some Mach 3. Absence of tee signage can make it difficult for visitors to find their way to the next tee.
Other Thoughts: When the park is empty, it can be a very fun course to play with lots of interesting obstacles to throw around and over. However, when the park is being used, many of the holes are unplayable.
