Pros:
Minimal chance to lose a disc. Glow/safari possibilities.
Cons:
Grass tees defined by paint, so can be difficult to locate. Flat-n-short. Basket #2 missing several rows of chains. Plays in the open space and near playing fields of a middle school, so not playable during school hours.
Other Thoughts:
To find the next tee area, follow the painted arrow on/next to the basket you just finished. Here's a brief navigation/course guide - all distances are visual estimates:

Find basket #7 to the left of the tennis courts. Follow the arrow to tee #8, in the middle of the parking lot. Basket #8 is 150' away, towards the school.
Find tee #9 in the open space, 50' away. Basket #9 is toward the corner of the school, 200' away.
Back towards the open space to find tee #1. Basket #1 is up on the mini plateau, just in front of a small group of trees, 250' away.
Tee #2 is to the left on th eother side of the trees, but basket #2 is to the right at the end of the trees, a 175' right-turner.
Tee #3 slightly left towards a parking lot, basket #3 slightly right, making this a very short shot - maybe 125'.
Tee #4 is to the right, basket #4 farther, on the other side of a large tree. Left- or right-turner, 175'.
Tee #5 is on the right-field foul-line of the small baseball field, with the basket behind the higher fence which serves as the backstop of home plate - definitely a turn-n-drop shot, 200'
Tee #6 is also near a foul-line (if memory serves), an dis the longest hole at about 300'. The basket sits in front of the near fence of the tennis courts.
Tee #7 is not too far away, in the open, with the basket down-n-behind the tennis court fence. 200', sharp left-turner.

This course reminds me of the made-up object courses, using fences as obstacles, we would play with frisbees back in the mid-70s.

 Not as good as the Eagles Claw

Pros: - 9 baskets with a couple obstructions
- good for beginners
- would be real hard to loose a disc
Cons: - Tees only painted on ground
- plays around sport feilds so will be unplayable at times
Other Thoughts: This is your basic school course. When you pull into the bus parking lot you will see 7 and 8's baskets. You will not likely be able to spot the tees at first as they are painted lines on the grass. Walk to any basket and look at the bottom, they painted arrows to lead to the next basket but if gone then take note of what side of the pole is painted and walk that way.

The course is a beginner course and fairly wide open. It tries for variety with one hole being a little up slope, one a little down slope, one has a little window in the trees, and two bring sport fences into play to force you to shoot around. The course looks pretty new but two of the baskets are already missing chains(S hooks not tight).

I guess because it is on school grounds and their space is limited they made the best of what they had, however compaired to The Eagle's Claw down the road this course falls short. They need some form of permanent tee markers as after a mow the painted ones will be gone.
