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.

Pros: long open 9 hole course fun for going out with a few friends and bombing some drives. A good place to practice long distance drives.
Cons: 9 holes in a large park surrounded by baseball, soccer fields and playgrounds.

close to home....
Pros: Good use of a small amount of land. There is no way 18 would fit, but the 9 is spread out. A couple long holes(608, 700ft). Shortest hole is ~250ft. More baskets in the Muskegon area to throw at.
Cons: Not many trees. Not many technical shots.
Other Thoughts: If you live in the area, and have a spare hour, check this course out. I'm a little confused by this course. Its only 9 holes, but the holes are longer, but not technical.
Bring your big guns! The long holes are wide open. This course should be easily par-able, but I've yet to do it.
