Pros: This is a good place for beginners to learn how to play the game and throw without worry of losing a disc. The course is completely wide open and flat. It looks like some trees have been recently planted by holes 1 and 9 which is nice to see. They're close enough to the tee that they could have some effect on those holes in a few years once they grow a bit.

The course has tee signs by the longs and there are concrete pads for the longs and shorts.
Cons: The tee signs are centered a foot behind the tee blocking your run up if you want to start behind the pad. I found this a problem on the long holes. Also, the tee signs only list the distance from the longs

The course is completely flat and immensely boring.

There's a very large hill right next to the course that could easily be brought into play on 2-4 holes but isn't. the 50-75ft elevation change that would bring into play would certainly be a huge addition to this course while still keeping it beginner friendly.

Other people mentioned ruts in the ground. When I was here I stumbled over the occasional rut in the ground, but overall the ground seemed mostly fine.
Other Thoughts: Unless you live in the area and are either new to the game or want some field practice, there's no reason to stop here.

Pros: The course plays through an open field. Two holes use some small trees as obstacles to make you shape your shots a little. The holes go in all directions so you have to play all kinds of wind conditions throughout the round. There are dual concrete tees that are nice and large and in great shape. The baskets are new, and catch great. It's always nice to see disc golf making inroads into a new area.
Cons: The land available for this course is just not interesting at all. It's a wide open flat field with uneven ground that makes walking difficult, and holds lots of water after a rain. The one interesting feature of the park, the sled hill, doesn't come into play at all.

The course seems to be intended as a course for really new players, even the short tees have a few holes that are a little long for new players, while the longs aren't enough longer to really add any challenge. If you're going to go to the effort of making dual tees, especially on wide open holes, the distance difference should at least make most players choose a different disc from the different tees. There is no signage, so it's a little difficult to figure out where to start, after that it's pretty easy to follow, though occasionally it's unclear which way the hole points.
Other Thoughts: As I said above, I love seeing new courses in areas that had none. Unfortunately, this was a pretty boring park to use, and the design doesn't do anything interesting with it. Both sets of tees have lengths appropriate for novice level players, it would be nice to see some tees designed for kids and people completely new to the sport on a course like this. Unless you want to add to your course number, this one isn't worth going out of your way for.
