Fun, Pleasant and Windy
Pros: - Good elevation with several uphill holes. One strong left drive around trees (4) and one strong right drive around trees (13).
- Although it's a mostly open course where it's hard to make a bad shot, several baskets are placed near enough to a tree that shot choice comes into play even if a bad choice wouldn't be punished too much.
- As stated before, this course is great for beginners and there are often several out on the course, but it has some bright spots as well. Most holes are around 300', but the 400 footers are open enough that you can really take a shot at the basket.
- The alternate tee for #2 (around the end of the pond) provides a neat shot over the pond and there is a basket in the trees that serves as an alternate 2 or 5.
Cons: -Casual non-golfers are often around the course. Perhaps this offsets the lack of trees a bit (hehe). The park is VERY busy on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. The walk/jog path running around the course provides some extra incentive to control your shots on the long holes #7 and #8.
- There is no Nex-T sign after #6 so new folks often go to #10 instead (which is closer)
- No risk. There is a pond, but little chance of losing a disk in it unless you throw way too much anhyzer on #17.
Other Thoughts: - This is a friendly and safe park. Rest rooms are available near #18 (and therefore not too far from #1).
- They have installed a new kiosk near hole 1 to house a course map and other information.

Crush and Crush Again
Pros: Hard to lose plastic, plenty of opportunity to throw really hard. Great for working on your power.
Cons: Hard to follow. Somewhat repetitive, with lots of "throw it really hard in an open field" type holes. Brutally hot in the summer, with little shade.
Other Thoughts: My review may be overly harsh since I came here after playing Redan on a hot, hot summer afternoon and played it solo.

Pros: Nice tee pads, wide open, clean, easy to follow. No riff raff to deal with.
Cons: Almost too open - would be nice to have a few more holes w/ obstacles. None shade hardly in the summer, can get hot hot hot.
Other Thoughts: A great place to learn how to "crush" a drive.
It's almost always windy out here too!

Nice open park
Pros: Pretty, well maintained park, good signage, plenty of benches for those that need a rest. Plenty of trash can around the course. Nice use of elevation changes. If your a newbie you will love this course. Come out on a windy day and even an experienced player will be challenged. This is a great course for night golf! The park is open until 11pm and the open layout works well for night golf. My favorite hole has to be 14, blind left to right shot around trees and down hill.
Cons: During the summer heat you will want water as there is not much shade.
The first time you play it may take a little while to find #1 and #7. 1 is by the barn and #7 is to the right and forward of #6s basket. #10 tee is closer and to the left, confuses many. You will share the park with picnickers crossing the course ocosionally.
Other Thoughts: A night tournament would be great here. Some longer tee boxes for the power players would help for those who fing the course to easy.

Grip it and rip it!!!!
Pros: It's wide open. Throw what you have. This course is best for beginners and for working on your throws. It's a lot like being in a field and just throwing your discs. Fortunately you have baskets to throw at. There are awesome concrete pads. The course and park are in great shape. There is no way to lose a disc. Great signs and each tee is pretty close to the one before it. It's a great open course.
Cons: It's a little on the easy side. The pars are off. That's about it really.
Other Thoughts: If you live close by and you want a driving range with baskets, this is the place to go. I've only been playing a few weeks so this course was great for me. I totally understand why a veteran would find this course too easy, but everyone can enjoy a beautiful day and chunking your disc as far as you can. If that's what you'd like to do, then this is the place to do it.

WIDE OPEN SPACES!!!!
Pros: LET EM RIP AND LET EM FLY! This course allows you to throw nearly every disc in your bag. It is really open, really well thought out and has great signage. It is true it is easy, I shot 2 under, but it is nice and peaceful out there. I like to watch discs soar and this course delivers just that. The front 9 is open while the back goes in and out of slightly wooded areas. If you lose a disc here I would be suprised!
Cons: The pars on some holes need to be re-thought, not very challenging as far as obstacles go, nothing to really make you alter your shot or think too much about any shot.
Other Thoughts: I have been playing now for 3 weeks and I actually liked this course a good deal. It is nice, open, quiet, and plays long which is fun to me. I threw my Dx Wraith 310 out there! It was fun to let em rip! I am a pretty solid player who has had the worst of 13 over and the best today of 2 under, elsewhere was 2 over for my best.

Pros: -very open and easy to get around.
-signage is very obvious and points you in the right direction to get you to a tee quickly.
-almost impossible to lose any kind of disc on this course.
-great place to work on every form of your golfing, from driving all the way down to putting.
Cons: -the pars need to be worked on. some are way to easy and some of them are just right.
-kinda boring set up of the pars. it goes a couple par 4s, then a couple par 3s, then a couple par 5s, then back to par four.

Pros: This is a great track for rookies like myself. The course is wide open for the most part, so creativity is not really necessary. This is a great place to work on your driving and putting without losing discs.
I especially appreciated the cleanliness of the park, the cement tee pads, and the upkeep of the course. This course is set in a beautiful area.
The course is also very well marked after you find the first tee pad. No real pedestrian danger as the course pretty much keeps to itself.
Cons: Finding the first tee pad took a few minutes, but from there everything is well marked.
I would understand if some of the pros out there found this course to be a little mundane, uneventful, and boring. Not much in the way of variety, and no real hazards to speak of. Creativity does not really come into play, but some of you long guys have plenty of opportunity to score from the tee box.
Only one set of tees. Again, probably affects more of the veteran players.
Other Thoughts: This is only the second course that I've played, and I think this course is well suited to those greenhorns out there like myself. Shot a 63 & 61 this morning. I found this course to be very enjoyable and would come back to play often. I think that because everything is well marked and clean, the course offers an experience that new golfers will want to come back to. Great course for us beginners.

Pros: Course has some longer holes than most disc golf courses. In windy conditions it can be hard shoot 54 and can become very difficult. In benign conditions double digits should be expected for 940< rated players; however, won't come as easily as it would seem.
Cons: Overall I think this course is a bit underrated. While it is wide open most holes play about 350 feet long and you still have to putt. A much better course could have been made here by bringing the water into play. I certainly would support a redesign but I think the current layout is different to most disc golf courses.
Other Thoughts: This course is good complement tournament course for nearby Redan.
