Pros: This course has mostly open-holes, with OB and water. The hole lengths were really good. The grass tee areas are well maintained. #8 plays with a great elevation change by having the basket on top of a very big hill in the center of the park. This is a beautiful park and it has great parking.
Cons: The baskets are x-large, homemade, with 8 very wide chains that are not effective. The disc can hit the thick center pole and even bounce out. Basically you have to lob a putt to make sure it sticks. The tee signs are the poles with some homemade maps on them. The maps are only still on a few of the tees. #9 is not even marked like the other tees. It is the top of the hill where #8 basket is. As far as navigation is concerned, even after studying the map, I still had a tough time finding all the tees and baskets.

Now, I will give you the real reason for this rating. This park is full of kids even on a weekday. Many of the holes are where people are. The playground is in play on hole 2. The walking paths are close on a few holes and #9 basket is on the other side of a park bench. There were kids everywhere and there is no way you should play this course when there are kids present. The safety issue here is crazy. Holes along the outfield of the baseball fields will certainly come into play with water to the right of the same fairway. So, unless you are going to play at sunrise, I would not visit this course. After reading the other review, I just had to see for myself if it was really that bad. IT IS!
Other Thoughts: The Fun Factor for me was horrid. Waiting until there might be a safe time to throw can really wear you out. Someone is going to get hurt, if people don't know what they are doing and lose control of their disc just once. Plus, the baskets are ridiculous and beyond frustration. I say stay away from here, but if you have to play here, make it really early morning.
