Pros: * A new six-hole layout with new tee signs and Mach New II targets
* Some technical shots required
* Good for practice and beginners
* Attractive park
Cons: * Short holes due to small park size
* Only six holes
* Along busy street
* Natural tees
Other Thoughts: This course was completely renovated in Fall of 2010. Reviews posted prior to mine reflect the old nine-hole course with homemade baskets.

Pros: Great for someone new to the sport. The course is very small and holes are rather short. At least now it has real baskets, with tee signs and everything. I will say there are two actually fairly decent holes for the more skilled players. If you want to do an ace race go here, hole 3 is probably your best chance.
Cons: Very short, not even 9 holes long. Longest hole is 225 feet. Won't need anything longer than a midrange.
Other Thoughts: If you have a friend looking to get into the sport, but they can barely throw a regular frisbee, take them here. This way you shouldn't feel too bad holding people up(at more populated courses like Hiestand or Vallarta-Ast) and they may not feel terrible about their score.

Pros: Disc golf with interesting entrapment devices.
Pretty neighborhood park.
Couple of local residents walking dogs on course; worked with us and gave no dirty looks.
What pins were available were blocked well.
Cons: I almost hate putting this down; because if Tim sees this; perhaps this course will go the way of Kops Park; why, because there are only three baskets here that we could find. We located baskets numbered 1, 5, and 7.
No tees. We played 5 shots from one baskets locale to another basket. Having only found three holes; there were not a lot of options.
One of three baskets leaning drunkinly sideways.
Only 5 sets of chains on one bucket; the other two had eight.
Other Thoughts: These baskets are actually interesting disc catching devices. The bottom, box, is large enough that a lofted putt has a good chance of staying in. The center pole; though much smaller in diameter than normal baskets; does a decent job of kicking disc into box (basket area).

Pros: Funny old targets...
Cons: ...that will take a bite out of your disc! There are five pins, no tees, and I kinda felt like I was trespassing.
Other Thoughts: This is not really a disc golf course! It's a small, quaint park with the bonus of some DG history in the form of bird-feeders/baskets. Just check out the pic I posted and don't bother the nice people of Maple Bluff.

Pros: It's better then nothing, sort of. I don't think you'll have to wait to throw.
Cons: Just about everything. The so called homemade baskets have become a joke. They are in terrible shape!
Other Thoughts: This is actually the first course I ever played on several years ago. It was a short, just learning to play course. The small park itself is nice, but it won't take you more then half an hour to play the course. I personally wouldn't bother playing this course, but I might have a picnic there.
