Pros: - nice park
- hole 1 makes for a good warm up hole being a short open field shot
-holes 2,3 make decent use of some light woods
-holes 5,6 are solid holes 5 throwing down a small hill with the pin a good distance located in some trees and 6 a hook shot around the same patch of trees
-8/9 the pond comes into play (it kinda does on 7 but not really)
8 you throw over the pond but the only way that it would be very hard is if you can only throw 50 feet 9 makes much better use of the pond throwing across it but the pin is next to the water making it more of a challenge.
-holes 15,16 make better use of the same woods that 2 and 3 used 5 throwing form the field into the woods and 6 a short little tunnel shot into the woods
Cons: -the hardest part of this course is the distance but all of the distance is open field shots( could be a good place to test a new driver)
holes 4,10,11,12,13,14,17,18 are all open field shots that are all about the same
- i could be this course sucking hard if there was wind
-the tea pads really need some work they are gravel but are in poor shape
Other Thoughts: this course has potential if they plant more trees
and if they plant trees and some years go by so they start to get bigger then this course would be a lot of fun but it would take some work and a lot of time
also if they moved some pins to make it a little harder like on holes 2,3 to make better use of the woods and on hole 8 to make better use of the pond

Pros: 1) Nice kiosk at the first tee for announcements and league info and such.
2) Tee signs say Hole # Par and Distance.
3) Nice use of the pond for 3 holes. It is in play on every shot and in different ways. One hole it runs along the fairway, one hole you have to simply throw over it about 100', and then 3rd hole you need a decent carry and could actually throw 200' over the water and let it cut back to the basket if you have the guts. It was a little too windy for me to try that shot.
4) Nice use of distance variation as part of the design. There is a huge variety between the shortest and the longest hole with a nice mix of distances in between.
5) There is a really good amount of variety on this course. Some rolling hills, some tight woods, some open holes, some water in play, some minor to moderate elevation changes.
6) Discatchers are highly visible and in decent shape.
Cons: 1) This course lacks in obstacles unfortunately because it would be a great course if there were simply more trees planted.
2) There might be a couple spots where danger is a factor. #8 tee is right where a long drive or short second shot on #7 might tail off to. #6 is a hard 90 degree dogleg that if the shot isn't executed well could end up near #5 basket. #2 throws right into the opening in the woods where people exit from #16 basket.
3) The walkpath comes into play on a few shots also, so non-disc golfers will interact with the disc golfers which can always lead to issues, especially since most non-disc golfers do not understand what it is we are doing.
4) Gravel tees are in rough shape in many spots. They are rutted out and uneven. Put concrete on this course and it would be a huge step up since it is also a longer course.
Other Thoughts: All in all this is an average course with the potential to be great with some added trees and obstacles. There are enough fun holes here to keep this course on the average side of things, but the addition of more trees forcing more line shaping will elevate this course to above average since it already has the length, some moderately tight woods, elevation, water, etc. It has ever piece of a great course it just lacks the obstacles to throw around.

Pros: - Course is located in a nice park that is mostly clear of people, even for its large size.
- A small pond/lake is in play on a couple holes, which is good to see in this area. While these holes are shorter, you are still driving over the pond off the tee. One hole has the basket pretty close to the water, which is a nice touch.
- A couple of holes make good use of what little elevation there is. There is one big hill that gives you a mild upshot on one hole, and a pretty significant downshot on the next. Also another elevated tee on a later hole.
- The course flows nicely; it starts off with shorter holes, which get longer and longer, and then ends up short again. Kind of like a warm-up and cool-down to begin and end the round.
- The longer holes are long enough to really let it fly, or at least test accuracy on some long shots. I won't be setting any distance records, so this is a good course to see how my D is coming along.
- A little use of the forest, but pretty minimal. Mostly just shooting at the basket in the woods from the open, or shooting around the forest to get to the basket.
- I don't think I have ever seen anyone else on this course, ever. Always a good thing.
Cons: - Flat, long holes do tend to get a little repetitive. I am always trying to get more distance, so I like this aspect, but only to a point.
- Tees are in so-so condition. Better off just teeing off next to the dirt, which is only going to make it worse.
- Large geese infestation at all times, thanks to the water.
- They rearranged the holes on the back end a bit; I still get a little turned around each time I go. Not too badly, though.
- Short holes are very short and very open. No challenge on these.
- I don't think you ever need a disc to turn right on this course. Ever.
Other Thoughts: - This course is almost like a practice course. There are the short, open holes that you can practice using your mid or putter on. There are the longer holes to practice your distance drivers on. I like coming here as a check to see if I have improved lately, in terms of accuracy and distance off the tee.
- The holes near the pond are nice to see in the area. #9 is great, with the pond encompassing the entire right side of the hole. Risk/reward is great for one hole, at least.
- This course doesn't try to be fancy, it just wants you to be accurate, and at times long. Maybe not super exciting, but a solid 18 holer.
- Wind always seems to be a huge factor, every time. I like this, personally, as it really makes you throw quality shots. I would count this as a pro, but it can be ridiculous at times.

Pros: Great place to practice distance driving because there are a bunch of long wide-open holes.
About 5-6 unique holes with a couple tee shots that shoot way down or uphill.
A couple tees over water, but pretty safe.
A couple shots through or into the woods (holes 15-16). Those baskets had been missing but new baskets have been installed as of 10/12/09.
A nice park with some areas of mature trees.
Hole #5 is fun! You tee off on top of a large (for the area) hill and you are shooting into a wooded alcove. If you park one on this hole you will be very satisfied.
Cons: Tee pads are natural and some are rutted.
A little over half the course has very small trees as only obstacles (great in 15 yrs!).
Other Thoughts: Great for working on distance.
Bad course for working on accuracy.

Pros: The few holes around the lake are fantastic. They large trees to contend with and require accuracy. One of them is quite a long hole.
A few interesting holes were you drive out of the woods into the open (hole 3 i believe) and one were you throw from a hill top into the woods (barely).
Cons: The majority of the course is wide open (although many trees have been planted and in time they will grow large enough to impact the course play). What woods that are in the park are barely utilized. Not worth the time to play if your visiting the area.
