Pros: 1) Nice large kiosk with information on one side and a soda machine on the back side.
2) Nice large rectangular concrete tees are always appreciated.
3) DGA signs with Hole #, Par, Distance, and a Map are decent signs that help with figuring out where you are throwing.
4) Nice mix of open park like holes coupled with a handful of tight wooded holes.
5) Elevation in play on many holes including some faster greens (potential for roll-a-ways).
6) Excellent old park with mature Oaks and other trees.
7) There is a river in play but more than that it is a nice visual on the course. Couple that with the waterfall as you drive into the park and it is a beautiful property for disc golf.
8) Bathrooms are available at the 1st tee and 18th basket.
Cons: 1) Weedy thin turf throughout this course. Some areas are in decent shape, but many areas are thin.
2) There are some areas that are absolute jail . . . specifically left of #7 (a virtual cliff 45' to the left of the basket) and a few other areas near the woods with a lot of underbrush.
3) There are a couple places where the road is in play. You throw along the exit road on #1, over the exit road on #3, along the road on the big downhill #11, and along the road on #12.
4) They made some effort to indicate the next tee on the baskets but the signs were inconsistent and low quality. I appreciate the effort but wish it was perfect.
5) Compaction was evident in the woods from the limited fairways.
Other Thoughts: I was 5' from losing my Ace Disc (5 aces with this disc) Star Gator on an approach along the river. Fortunately it held up in the grass and I nailed the 45' putt for my 3. That might have affected my rating of this course . . . just kidding. It is a solid course with excellent variety and elevation change. It is challenging for multiple reasons. It was also a beautiful course, lots of mature trees, a river, some nice tight wooded shots etc. I played this in the rain because I was on a mission that day to play a bunch of new courses but I do not feel the rain negatively impacted my impression of this course.

Gnarly Views and Possible Aces

Pros: Who doesn't like a shot, at say, 8-10 realistic Aces?!? Very nice scenery around the park as well. I like how open it plays yet does present a few challenges with the more enclosed holes like #5(i think). Its also not too daunting of a course to take a child out frolfing with you.
Cons: Not a fan of the wood chip tees. Bathrooms are a long ways away after the #11. Be aware if you're a "token" player, the Park Fuzz was well represented.
Other Thoughts: I really dig this course! Its very beautiful and well maintained. I look forward to rocking this one again!

Pros: - Course is set within a large park that has holes weaving in and out amongst the various park roads. There aren't any other things to interfere with the DG, really, but waiting for cars is a real possibility.
- Large majority of the holes have pretty open fairways, with a few bigger trees to contend with. These force a variety of lines, with a multitude of various RHBH hyzers of differing lengths, as well as some straight shots. Usually there are a lot of different lines available, yet there are enough trees to make things interesting. Minor elevation changes also present here and there.
- Other holes have some cool features that stand out. Some very dense forest on holes #4, #5, and #10 demand big accuracy to avoid getting knocked down into some nasty areas. Decent elevation changes are present on these holes too. Water is present as well; to the left of #13's fairway and in front of #15's teepad. A steep cliff by #8 and #9 is another hazard; I don't know what you'd have to do to get your disc back there! A lot of walking perhaps.
- Great variety in hole length, there are a lot of ace runs with ten holes at or under 250', and also five holes over 315' (three over 400'). Helps to keep things interesting from start to finish.
- Mix of teepads from dirt to woodchips to concrete, all were decent except for some loose woodchip ones. Signs and baskets were good, navigation was not a problem especially with the map.
Cons: - Overall, the course plays very short, and has a good amount of open shots. In other words, the difficulty isn't there for most of the round. If you can avoid the various hazards, be it jail, the water, or the cliff, it is very easy to score well here.
- A hefty amount of pavement here, to the point where it gets pretty annoying. Both an eyesore and a distraction, especially if there is any traffic at all.
Other Thoughts: - All in all, a very fun course with some very cool shots. The elevated teepad over yellow creek on #15 is a fun bomber and highlights the round. Other holes with elevation changes and/or dense tree coverage help to provide some more fun and challenge. More experienced players won't be tested too greatly, and true beginners might lose a disc or two, otherwise it should be a good time for all!
