Freedom to play
Pros: Not one other player when I played. Probably because Sunset Park is less than 10mins away off the same street. The yellowish spongy grass almost doesn't seem real, but provides a nice surface for disc golf. Nice but old kids park in the middle of the course.
Cons: Some weird tee shots with trees directly in the middle, forcing hyzers or anhyzers. Pick-up soccer game going on right in the middle of hole #4. Never did find the teebox for #5. Smallish teeboxes.
Other Thoughts: If you park in the middle of the lot, start with hole #9, and finish with hole #8. Otherwise, make sure to park at the very end of the lot for easiest access to #1.
Uniqueness: C+ (average layout in an average park)
Difficulty: B- (flat; not too long; some trees)
Fun factor: B- (was OK, but won't be coming back)
Aesthetics: B (cleanish; looks older than it is)

Good to see progress, but...
Pros: -Tee pads are a Plus, they were not installed when I played here last, so I made a point to look at the pictures before I reviewed. I played as best as I could the first time out
-Many ammenities at the park, yet I played drunk, broke, and at dawn, so I could only take advantage of the fountain, not the restroom
Cons: -Apparently the missing chains issue has not been resolved in the past year. This was a pain in the arse, but not as bad as the overall condition used to be without paved pads or numbers.
-When I played at dawn there was a homeless person sleeping at the foot of the basket, but I think that factor might've actually been a plus. It was a challenge, and I never saw them climb outta the sleeping bag to complain about my playing the course!
-Not really in a good part of town, and the police seemed to take notice of me, yet never bothered me.
Other Thoughts: I never got to play any of the other courses on my trip to Vegas, and I am angry that I missed out on better ones to play here. Next time I will do more research and get myself to something a little more respectable

What happens in Vegas...
Pros: Very open and playable. Easy to teach someone to play. Targets have a few trees to go around or through, but nothing for an experienced player to worry about. VERY CLEAN AND FAMILY ORIENTED PARK. Cheap Ice Cream for the kiddies because several ice cream trucks in the parking lot.
Cons: There is a massive number of people at this park on the weekends. Sunday afternoon is NOT suggested to play. Lots of folk will hang out there that have no clue about how the game goes and will walk/ride bikes in the flight path of your plastic. Also not a challenging park to play. This park is to learn on or to keep your throwing arm in shape.
Other Thoughts: My wife and I were visiting family in Vegas and came to this park by default because Sunset Park was having a tournament. I was able to teach my nephews and brother-in-law in an afternoon. The result: my brother-in-law will be buying his own plastic soon.
NOTE: LOTS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE BEING PERFORMED HERE BY FOLKS THAT HAVE RECIEVED A DUI. Considering this is Vegas...there will be plenty of DUI folks to keep the park clean.
