Pros: Good variance with distance, elevation, trees, and water hazards.

Less experienced players will definitely use a variety of shots (forehands, backhands, hyzers, annys, and overhand).

Hole 1 and 2 are medium distance with small turns to the right past trees.

Hole 3 is an ace hole.

Hole 4 is a medium long straight shot.

Holes 5 and 6 have an "ace or drink" feel as you throw them across the water.

Hole 7 is pretty long and under some trees.

Holes 8-15 make you use a variety of shots as you work your way up and down a hill and cross some water hazards and trees.

Holes 16 and 17 are pretty long straight shots.

Hole 18 is an ace shot.

Good for playing in groups of different skill levels.
Cons: Holes 7, 16, and 17 can be a bit too long for newer players to view them as par 3's.

Hole 18 is mildly anticlamatic after the build up of the previous 10 holes.

Some holes tend to repeat the previous one (ex: 6 after 5, 17 after 16).
Other Thoughts: Fun place to have an ace race and have other activities if you decide to bring your family.

Pros: -Great variation (Trees, dog-legs, elevation changes)
-Good use of the park
-Have to think about the shots
-Good signage by tee pad and pointing in direction of next tee
-Parks Dept has done a great job of clearing out alot of the underbrush on a few of the holes and larger trees on 3, 4 and 6.
-Cement tee pads all in except for 15
Cons: -Playing in the summer is tricky, LOTS of people in and around the fairways on most holes
-Teams (Softball, Football and Soccer) can be on the field for 16 and 17, most move, some just will not.
-Holes 4 and 7 are too close to the parking lots, cars will be hit.
Other Thoughts: The course really opened up the park.
I just hope that the city continues to be behind the course.
The new baskets added have not taken away from the course and have made the flow a lot smoother then the original layout.
If you are playing alone can be difficult to follow the disc if it goes into the blackberries, ivy, woods or water. A spotter is nice on a few of the holes, but not a must have.
* The trees taken down on 4 have opened the river side of the fairway up, but from paved trail to creek is rocks, broken pices of concrete and HUGE black berry bushes.

Pros: Sent's the first time my bother and I played it has growing. Its a go local for family want to go and make a day of it. The course is a good play. My fav. is hole 13 and 15 they are blind play that make it fun. for a silly group.
Cons: if over threw holes 1, 2, 4 and 18 you will be in the water. which is fine if it is hot hell. under threw holes 5 and 6 in the water. Can do without hole 11 and 12 I just don't like them at all.
Other Thoughts: This course can be longer and be fun to have a tournament there!!!!

Pros: Nice to have 18 holes instead of the old 9 holer.
Glad they kept some of the old holes.
Cons: Hole 4 is great in principle(narrow tunnel shot), but I see to many cars getting hit in the parking lot on the right side.

I wish the two short, easy ace holes over the creek were spaced out rather than right next to each other.
