Pros: -It has baskets.
-3 of the 9 holes could maybe be found on a decent disc golf course.
-Friendly locals (me and my buddy) who will show you some of the 50+ holes that have been made up to make it fun.
-There is lights in the park that light up a couple baskets until about 10pm depending on the time of year.
Cons: -No tee pads.
-Only a few tee signs left.
-Those tee signs are on poles that stick out of the ground 4 ft and were apparently designed to remove skin from your hands.
-A completely flat and unobstructed 75 ft. par 3.
-A completely flat and unobstructed 275 ft. par 5.
-No bathrooms
-Has been vandalized more times than I could count.
-Half dirt, one quarter dead grass, and one quarter over watered grass.
-The city doesn't care about it whatsoever. They stopped watering the few trees there are there, and half the grass. The only place they water is right next to the street where there is no baskets for, and I quote, "curb appeal".


Other Thoughts: As much as I complain about this course, it is my home course. When I say home course, I mean it. It is a 2 minute WALK from my house. If it weren't for this course I wouldn't be playing disc golf, and that would be a shame. The next closest course to me is a 2 1/2 hour drive. In closing, I love this course and always will, but it's unlikely anyone who is serious about disc golf other than myself would rate it over a .5, and I wouldn't blame them.
