Pros: - Course is set in a tiny strip of forest next to a park. Can't imagine many other people coming over there.
- Pretty heavily wooded, with some very very tight lines and some very interesting hole shapes. One with a question mark shape fairway, another with a backwards 7 shape. #1 is a sharp sharp hyzer, or perhaps a line over the forest.
- A few elevation changes, #2 is slight uphill and #3 is downhill.
- Pretty simple signs
Cons: - Hole lengths are extremely short here, and the lines can be pretty darn silly. Pretty, pretty silly....
Other Thoughts: - Missing baskets, weird lines, short hole lengths, yikes. I don't know if this course is going to be fun for anybody... beginners most likely.

Pros: The course plays through a small wooded area. There are nice mature trees and plenty of thick underbrush to punish errant shots. Some elevation comes into play on about half the holes, with small but well-used up and downhill shots and a couple roll away greens. The course is short but technical, offering the chance to hit some tight lines. You will need to throw left and right turning shots to get the very available birdies here.
Cons: There isn't any length here, you don't need anything other than a putter to score well. A couple holes are under 100', and the only longer holes have awkward lines that you won't really be able to shape with a faster disc anyway. It feels like the design was done without the input of an experienced designer to take care of things like safety issues and a design that offers real disc golf challenges. The course is in a state of disrepair, with 3 missing baskets and a couple missing signs. Navigation is a little tricky in spots. The tees are awful, many of them are on sloping rutted areas of dirt with a couple paving stones or nothing at all to indicate the exact spot.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will find a few fun technical lines and short lengths though the rough can be punitive at times with blind landing areas. More experienced players won't find much variety or challenge to keep them interested, and the lack of maintenance or level tee areas keeps it from being worth the stop.

 Putter through the woods

Pros: - You can work on your technical game with your putter.
Cons: - Hole 1 is missing.
- Crappy tee pads.
- Half of the course is on the side of a hill with holes going perpendicular to the slope.
- Overall, just a really odd course with most of the holes under 100 feet.
Other Thoughts: - This course seems like it was more of an amenity quickly added by a developer to get more people to live in his new development.
- IMO, Rowe Park is better for working on your technical short game.
