At least it's not Ross park

Pros: • This course is located within another park, with other activities going on. (walking paths playground for kids, baseball field etc) The plus here is that DG doesn't conflict with other stuff going on here, or vice versa.
-Free to play, always a plus.
- Great variety of shots for a 9 hole course, a few holes to open up your arm on with a mix of holes requiring accuracy and finesse.
• Actual concrete teepads here, mixed with teesigns showing distance, lines and box number.
• No last minute, "short holes" thrown in. 2 of the 9 holes are over 600' (Hole 5= 607' / Hole 8=700') which makes for an interestingly long 9 hole course. None of the holes are under 250' with the shortest hole at 253' (Hole 4)
• Metal baskets are in awesome shape. Lots of life left in them. (Pretty sure they are chainstar)
• The walks from basket to tee aren't grueling, so you can go from clearing your putter to ripping a drive in just a minute or so.
Cons: • Course was flat, not much going on in terms of elevation changes (Only one raised basket in the whole park)
• In the spring/summer bring bug spray, pests could definitely be a problem here.
• No real risk vs. reward here.
• With room for additional holes to be added, it's a wonder they still have this place only with 9 baskets.
Other Thoughts: For only 9 holes, this course does a pretty decent job of mixing it up for you. Most 9 holers I've played seem to be all about supre short and technical holes. Mullally utilizes some longer drives as well as mixing in accuracy and tunnel shots.
All-in-all I'm impressed with the work done here and I think if you have a chance to add this course into your day, then by all means do it.

Pros: - nice teepads and baskets
- variety in distance. (250 to 700 feet)
- navigation is very easy.
- nice course for beginners but the long holes will challenge anybody.
- hole 6 has the basket on top of a hill, and is well guarded by trees. by far my favorite hole here.
Cons: - other than the 1 elevated basket there is no elevation change at all.
- the first 3 holes are very repetitive. two of the first 3 holes are 308' and the other is 307' and the basket is in pretty much the same place on all 3.
- every hole is pretty much wide open. you can throw hyzer, anhyzer, or straight on every hole.
- I don't like courses where the only challenge is distance and that is how I felt about this course. When there is a tee pad and a basket 700 feet apart in a field with no trees, that is not very fun to me.
Other Thoughts: decent 9 hole course in a nice park. If you are passing through the area there are much better choices, but living here I find that mullally is a nice change from the heavily wooded courses that I usually play (whitehall, henderson lake, flip city)

Aesthetic--plays around the perimeter of a large multi-use park. Does not really interfere with walking paths or other activities of the park
Teepads/signs--nice concrete teepads with simple post teesigns with the tee number and the distance.
Routing/Nav--very easy. no long walks between pins.
Variety/Length--Very long course for a 9-holer. with 2 holes >600' this course is a killer 9-hole. All holes are >250'
Baskets--nice and in great repair. I believe they're Mach 2's.
Risk v Reward--none to speak of.
Elevation change--none to speak of.
Only 9-holes! This is a great 9-hole course but would be even more awesome as an 18.
Other Thoughts: the elevated pin is a nice change from the wide open baskets here

Family Oriented With a Bit of a Challenge
Pros: -Well Balanced 9 hole course that has bomber shots with semi-challenging finesses/technical shots,
-Well maintained as it is in the middle of a park with baseball diamonds on one side and soccer fields on the other.
-Playground for the kids
-Good mix of trees and open land
-More of a beginner/refining course (go to flip or branstrom if you're looking for something tougher. McGraft is a better choice for 18 holes that is closest)
-Tee signs marking the footage and hole number.
Cons: -Some holes tough to navigate (Hole 7 especially). Some holes do not lead into eachother and require backtracking or a change of direction. You don't always walk right into the next hole.
-If you are playing competitively, there is much room for mistakes. If you make a bad throw, chances are you can recover. This is great for beginners and those refining technique. It won't give you a headached.
-I would assume it gets busy during the summer and spring with sporting activities, but this is just an assumption.
Other Thoughts: All holes are easy to get to. Played this one in the snow, so navigation was a little tough. Hole 1-3 follow the fenceline. Hole 4 is in the corner, but takes you 250' to the right. Hole 5 is the 600 footer that follows the fence line. Continuing walking in the same direction to hole 6. Hole 6 has you shooting back about 280 or so, to a slightly elevated mound with a basket on top. The mound is well guarded and beware of overshooting as there is a drop off back to ground level. After finishing this one turn around to walk back toward the fence. Finish hole 7 and turn back to the main entrance to the 700' hole 8. Arrive at the tee pad and look toward the hole 6 mound. This is the right side of the fairway. The hole is tough to see and this is the one where we waited around like idiots trying to find the hole. Pretend like you are shooting back to hole 4 and you're on the right track. After finishing this, hole 9 is toward the right of the playground and has you shooting toward the fenceline. It's a good walk back to the vehicles or to play hole 1.
I rate this low because you have to compare it to other 18 hole courses on here. This is by far the best 9 hole course I've ever played. I thought the designers did a great job utilizing what the land offered. You can't exactly plant more mature trees to ensure more obstacles in a park. If you're looking for something quick play this course. If not, go to another one nearby.
The park may need to consider a course map or signs to tell you where the baskets are. Just a thought. In my opinion there are party courses, business courses, and the ones that are a mix. This course is more of a casual/party course. You won't get a headache playing this one or walk it with all your discs being less stable from all the trees. Fantastic course to take to the kids. Playground in the middle of the course!

Pros: A good walk on this nine holer's gentle terrain is a perfect way to get out and enjoy a spare moment and enrich the day. Although the game of disc golf is generally laid back and not necessarily strenuous, some of the more sprawling and complex courses can be a bit more than a person may wish to take on due to time constraints, blazing summer heat, or well deserved laziness. This one can be fit into even the most hectic of days and will provide a good walk and a satisfying round of play. The layout is fairly straightforward which definitely suits beginners. It also has enough character to entertain those with more experience. The holes allow for experimentation and technique improvement with any style of play. There is some challenge by way of distances that appear shorter at first glance than they truly are. Once the tee shot is sailed, the perspective often changes. The 600 and 700 foot holes have the potential to make players feel confident on the tee only to swallow their discs in vastness that humbles. A little ego adjustment perhaps. Although this course is nowhere near "heavily wooded" and even "moderately wooded" may be off base, the trees that are in play seem to have the uncanny knack of being right where they need to be to challenge the line, encourage forethought, and demand the use of control. This course takes some skill and a decent arm to score as well as one may anticipate scoring upon first impression.
Cons: Drawbacks include topography and scenery that offers little variance. That being noted, the course is set up about as perfectly as this piece of land will allow which cannot be scoffed at. The only other potential nuissance or danger comes by way of unsuspecting pedestrians who may be oblivious to the fact that a game which utilizes potentially deadly flying discs is being partaken in all around them. During busy park days, when visitors are attending baseball games and frollicking to and fro, cars that could quite conceivably be seriously damaged by errant shots are likely to line the edge of hole 2. The possibility of hitting a car has potential to cause tension on the tee. Tension on the tee has potential to cause a bad shot which will hit a car. Vicious circle.
Other Thoughts: This is a nice little park. The designers did well with the layout and succeded in creating a fun and deceptively challenging 9 holer. This park is between McGraft Park and Whitehall and makes a nice stop for a trifecta type day. It is definitely worth a stop if you are in the area and you have time to get out and enjoy it.
