Pros: The course played well. We had printed off a map before making the drive here but it turned out that there was no need to even look at it. When you finished a hole the next tee pad was right there for you and it was not hard to spot the basket for that pad. Easy walking and in a nice park. The pads were a nice large rubber mats.
Cons: There was a walking path going through the course and we did have to stop and sit for people on the walk path to clear.
Other Thoughts: Over all I gave this a 3.5 because of how easy it was to find our way around and that it was a fun course to play. No it was not a difficult one to play and it is more for that player who wants to scratch that itch to play a quick round but there was enough to make you work and think on each shot with no big fear of loosing a disc. As there are a lot of DG courses on the west side that have an absolute ton of growth going nuts everywhere that can eat a disc fast it was great to find one that was cleared out of all of that stuff and just the big trees were the things in the way with great walking. There is a number of holes that have elevation changes to deal with. Yet more to the fun factor! The entire course was well kept and clean. This is a GREAT course to take a person who is learning the game!!!

There was only 1 hole that was one that was a head scratcher. Hole #7. You throw along a ridge/hill line. The lake is down to your left and the hill slopes upward to your right. There is a clearing 1/2 to 3/4 to the basket. Now there is a light cross wind that comes off the lake up the hill and likes to give your disc a ride to funny land. My first throw was "What the heck!?!?" So I pitched a different disc and the same thing hit me. The wind did not feel like anything big but so it was a slick sneak attack from mother nature! A local told me that he has had to deal with that many times so I'm not feeling too bad about falling into the trap. I'm sure that if I play this hole a few times I'll figure it out....

Pros: This is a great course to take beginners and youngsters (probably a con for some). The course plays by a beautiful lake with great food/restroom accommodations. The park official in charge of maintenance is a great guy. He told us the layout, and was working on creating paths to the next tee pads. This course will not require a driver, but does offer a few skill shots.
Cons: For what it is, it is a great course. Yeah, 18 hole courses are nice, but so are cities that decide to turn abandoned land, filled with trash, into a fun course!

Pros: Nice layout and challenging too! Very clean as well.
Cons: 18 holes would be nice but there's not room unfortunately. And a port-a-potty would be cool too.
Other Thoughts: It plays plenty fast. We put in 27 holes in under 2 hours. Definetly a good time!
