Pros: Open park completely covered in grass. Baskets are in good condition. A few trees and playground/picnic area create decent, but few, obstacles.
Cons: Some of the signs are missing. Not a lot of obstacles. Played in a public park, and there could be a couple making-out in the fairway of one of the holes. :)
Other Thoughts: Decent course for the area. Nice to see grass rather than desert and tumbleweeds/sagebrush. I played the 9 holes then just created my own holes since nobody else was playing. This allowed for longer tee shots and setup for better obstructions.

 Pitch & Putt In A Small But Lovely Hilly Park!

Pros: Although this park's small size isn't ideal for a course, it's rolling hills and green grass makes for a more than adequate little pitch and putt course. There are some fun little throws to work on here because of the up and down terrain. It's fairly well marked. The baskets are decent. The pads are natural. There are signs although some are misssing and the pars listed on them are completely out of touch like # 3 being a 414' Par 5.
Cons: The course is set in tight with it's surrounding, especially some of the neigboring homes. # 4 is a 273 slight downhill throw with neighbor's homes on your right side all the way down the fairway. It would be so easy to park your drive over their fences or be tempted to hyser your drive out over their yards and let it settle back to the basket. I'm sure many discs find their way into their backyards. # 9 is another problem hole where your drive could end up flying into the on-coming traffic of a busy street. Another issue to factor in is the compact size of the park and the fact that the course utilizes every part of the park. Confrontations with other park users must arise frequently.
It's a nice little course for beginners, families, teens. It's not designed for tournies, pros, big arms or serious players.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed throwing here. It's a really nice piece of rolling land in which to have a course. I think if I lived closed I would probably have to adapt and play at odd hours to avoid the crowds.
I always enjoy these little courses where the listed pars are out of whack. I like getting an occasional eagle. If I played here often, I'd be going for the double eagle on # 3. How many of you have a double eagle to your credit?

Pros: Well designed, with a variety of optional shots and a few long holes. Green grass fairways and nice views.
Cons: Very easy to hit a house, car or little kid. Not technical or wooded, only 9 holes, many signs broken.
