Pros: -Wonderful 9 hole course
-Cement tee pads and Innova DisCatcher Pro Baskets
-Short tees have been added with the placement of red markers, level with the ground almost directly in front of the long boxes
-Designed very well, can't think of a better layout
-Lots of elevation, hilly
-There is an upper and lower level separated by a steep hill
-Lots of large trees and foliage in play on every hole
-A good variation of distance
-Demands the use of different throws and leaves room for multiple strategies
-Located in a very nice city park
-Bathrooms that only close during winter months
-A playground, some picnic tables and a couple of covered pavilions in the park
-The playground, pavilions, and roads will only be a problem with very errand throws
-Overall, a challenging course with very good distance choices and well designed for a 9 hole course
-I've seen a good number of people using the course already
Cons: -No water in play
-No signs to mark tees, holes, or distances (written on 8 Nov 2010, I am informed that signs are in the works of being added)
-No trash cans near tee boxes or baskets
-Only one place near tee boxes or baskets to sit and rest (cement blocks near tee #6)
-The red short tee markers (which were added later after the course was finished) should have been set at a different angle from the basket instead of directly in front of the long boxes. This would give this 9 hole course a feeling of having 18 different holes taking different paths to the baskets
Other Thoughts: -One of the nicest 9 hole courses I've ever played
-Discs can be purchased in town within a mile from the course at Lacon Fitness and Tan, as well as at Julie's Corner Store.
-I'm hoping a Lacon disc golf club can get started with memberships and some monthly mini tourneys next spring
