Pros: - This is indeed a practice area, in a small portion of the park. Four baskets, some on small hills and another next to some thick rough. Baskets are set up in a more or less rectangular pattern, varying from roughly 125'-200' away from each other.
- Very good baskets, no tees, signs, or anything else.
Cons: - Just a practice area, it is a stretch to call this a course. You could try to invent some sort of layout, but it's not going to be anything special.
Other Thoughts: - Good place to work on some putt and approach game; a few little hills add some character. Expecting anything more will lead to great disappointment.

 Nice practice area

Pros: This isn't really a course, it's just 4 baskets set up as a practice area in a park. For what it is, this park is pretty nice. There are 4 baskets in great shape that catch well. One basket is on a really slight mound, so there's some roll away possibility. There are 6 different distances from basket to basket you can throw throw, a couple of which bring a few trees or some long grass rough into play If you get creative you can make some shots that bring the trees into play as obstacles rather than just being off to one side. The park is nicely taken care of, with no trash or vandalism.
Cons: I rate all courses on the same scale, if I was rating practice areas alone this one is pretty good. There are no tees, and all the possible shots between baskets are wide open in a pretty boring field, and there are limited opportunities to make more interesting shots here. It's a good place to work on shorter shots and putting, but it's not going to help you work on shaping lines, and it doesn't have room for longer drives.
Other Thoughts: This is definitely a practice area, which is cool to see. I would love to see more parks that don't have the land for a full course putting in a few baskets like this for experienced players to practice, and for the general public to get more exposure to the sport. Don't go out of your way to "play" this one, but if you want a place to putt or work on approaches without being in the way on a course this is a good option.
