Pros: Very good course that has a nice variety of holes that will make you throw different. This course will challenge you and give you a few easy holes.
Cons: Groups of disrespectful kids have dumped over garbage cans, destroyed the signs and the cages.Just last week some morons decided to remove the cage from hole 13. The course is constantly a mess. I have heard of people parking on the side of the road waiting for people to throw and they run out, grab your disc and drive off with it... luckily for them I have yet to see this.
Other Thoughts: Thank you for everyone that found the cage for 13 and put it back in place. Its people like you that keep Disc Golf enjoyable.
This is a fun course to play... just have to go early to avoid the multiple idiots.

Pros: As many have expressed already, the course is definetly plotted out well to maximize the use of the land. The shot variation from hole to hole is nice and the trees throughout are sure to mess with every shot (drives and approaches alike). I was also glad to see that they at least attempted to use signage throughout the course (see my review of Tittabawassee Trail).
Cons: 1) As much as they tried to use signage, the locals have vandalized or removed much of them. This doesn't pose too much of a problem except for a few holes where the basket is hidden and the path forks. Also, after hole 6, if you don't pay attention, you can easily end up on hole 18. You must follow the path along the river instead. (-0.5 points)

2) The trash was pretty bad. There were only a couple garbage cans througout the course. Easy fix. (-0.5 points)

3) Lack of elevation changes. I know this isn't the fault of the designers, however, a "perfect" course would have a nice variation of this. (-0.5 points)
Other Thoughts: This course was fairly well maintained and the foliage along the sides of the fairway were not too thick to find discs. I would suggest using a spotter on a few holes if you are playing with someone. However I played alone and didn't lose anything.

I also played at 8AM so I didn't experience the foot traffic that others have complained about.

Overall, very nice course with a nice atmosphere and not overly challenging. Also pretty easy to find. I would recommend it to anyone passing through.

Pros: Very easy to find your way around. Tees are nice. Very well layed out and entertaining. Plus a bum that comes around and keeps all the bottles and cans up for you.
Cons: Need to cut the grass more often and the mesquitos are gettin really bad. Go early cuz it gets busy. It is getting greener out there and is getting alot easier to lose your discs.

Pros: Its a course that will build your game, you will develope accurate and varied shots. Its well laid out with minimal walking between tees which is a mark of a good course design.
Cons: The Course has been beaten down and isnt nearly as tough as it was when designed. Lots of casual use. The city upkeep of the course at times is poor although the local club does what it can

Pros: The course quite challenging and will make you think twice about every shot. Cement tee pads feel nice.
Cons: No water, moving from hole to hole can be confusing, and the area feel a little cramped.
Other Thoughts: It is a fun course to play if you can find your way out to it (print directions if you have never been).

Pros: Many difficult shots, and in close proximity to other courses. There is lots of variance in design, # 16 is a crazy hard right dog leg shot that requires either a huge hyzer or a very tall thumber to get over the trees.
Cons: Gets busy after 4ish and needs trash cans. No water hazards.
Other Thoughts: There are lots of trees and a few of them are really cool looking leaners that make certain holes significantly more difficult. Not a good course if you don't like them short and technical.
