"Skill Development Course"
Pros: It exists
Has nice DISCatcher baskets marked with hole numbers
Is nowhere near a river, so won't flood
Cons: All signs except map at beginning are missing
No shot variety at all
Very short (about 20 mins to play)
The tees are small and a weird soft rubber that as the ground beneath them has warped, so have the tees
Other Thoughts: Ok, so this course says "Recreational and Skill Development Course" on the main sign, and that's really all it is, a place to practice your game if you're a new player. The distance varies on each hole, but that's about it, otherwise it's always 150-250' straight shot with no obstacles other than low hills. Oh, and if you're playing with overstable discs, good news, every basket is about 10 feet to the left of the tee, so basically each one is an ace run for a competent player. Personally, I'm not there yet, I'm lucky to get pars at Woodlawn, but here I got pars and even a couple birdies using just my putter.

plant some trees
Pros: If you just want to practice the same shot over and over in a spot that can challenge you with wind, this is it. They had very nice baskets and i have to say I loved the rubber tee pads although they could have been a little longer.
Cons: lack of anything whatsoever to make a shot challenging. Good place to learn to throw a disc i guess.
Other Thoughts: Plant some trees :)

it has potential
Pros: This course is a good one for introducing new players to the game. it is also the only course payable while the other local courses are flooded or too muddy to play on. and its a good one to take the kids to.
Cons: no trees and very short drives.
Other Thoughts: if you want to get better at throwing on windy days, this is the course to practice on

The wind is the obstacle
Pros: This course isn't very busy in the Fargo-Moorhead area due to Oak Grove and Woodlawn being the main attractions. This course, being in the outskirts of West Fargo, is extremely windy. This course will test your ability to throw in every possible wind situation. If the forecast shows 20 mph winds, expect 40 mph gusts out here. The only real pro for this course is that it isn't wet from the last spring flood this area is prone to. This is the only course that stays dry.
Cons: Where to begin. Every hole is between 180 and 250 feet. Bring a putter and maybe a midrange and you're good. The layout is bad. BAD. There isn't a lot of potential, but it could actually be moderately ok if there was some fun factor to any of the holes. There is a line of trees on the east side that could possibly be used. There is an entire football field sized field that isn't being utilized. There are some "hills" that could be used more. The tees are the worst I have seen. I you go to this course, make sure you use the grass or you might roll your ankle. Quite honestly, I have only played this course because of the current state of the good courses in Fargo. I only use the targets for putting practice and if I want to practice my throws, I find an open field instead.
Other Thoughts: There is some frustration factor here. I usually average 3 under and I feel like I should be getting 6 or 7 under each time I play. The wind really screws with you on this course. I have recently been using this course as putting practice since it is pretty empty.

Extra, Extra: Fifteen Minute Round Option.
Pros: This is a clean, short, and simple course with wide-open holes. This course looks to be designed for the teens. They have nice baskets and the grass tee areas are in great shape. There is a nice information sign and navigation is not a problem. There is a restroom, but no trashcans, however it is such a short they are not needed. The park seems to be well kept up and was even getting mowed when I showed up.
Cons: The tee markers have nothing, but a hole number on them. Some of them have some damage, however easy to see. The layout is a bit stretched out in a couple of spots to make sure they had enough room to get all 9 holes in here without them being too crowded.
Other Thoughts: The Fun Factor is without the word fun. This course is short with no challenge. Throw, putt, throw, putt, tedious and boring is the name of the game. There is another 9 hole course in a different section of this park that has more of a challenge. This will be a great beginner course.

Pros: A nice little layout for newbie to lean the game. The course sign is always great to see.
Cons: The rubber tee pads are dangerous. They are to small and a tripping hazzard. The baskets are not straight, they tilt to one side. Hole # 9 basket is broken. Even with the course sign, I still had to ask where is the next hole on # 8.
Other Thoughts: Next park for the family. Clean.

A joke...and a bad one at that.
Pros: Innova baskets to shoot at. This course is now the closest one to my home and yet...I can't be bothered with it. Perhaps a nice place for small kids and families to be introduced to the game. Worthless to any sort of experienced player.
Cons: Weak, stupid, awful and a total waste of the 9 Innova baskets that used to grace the sweet little 9 hole at Armour Park.
Other Thoughts: This 'course' must have been thought out by a monkey. Its one straight shot after another...featuring NO challenges, obstacles or elevation changes. 9 holes in what used to be a wheat field...weeeeeee!

Pros: Great course for beginners
Well kept fairways
Map with hole information
Cons: Every hole can be reached in one throw
Often packed with small children
Woods directly beside holes 2 and 3
Other Thoughts: This is the first course that I ever played, which was nice because the only real threat that I had was the woods on holes 2 and 3. That being said, though, it offers almost no challenge- and after playing for only a few weeks, I'm confident that I could come out well under par for the course.
