Pros: - Course is located in a quiet, nice neighborhood on the grounds of a city recreation center.
- Good variety of shots and lines on each hole.
- Multiple pin positions have been added to make course longer and more difficult.
- Great chance for an ace.
- Really good course to practice your game.
- Nice lowing ceilings on some holes create a moderate challenge.
- Nice, accurate tee-signs.
Cons: - Course is very easy and becomes old really quick.
- Not uncommon to get stuck behind a pack of beginners.
- Parents from the school allow kids to run on fairways; watch where you throw.
- Very small parking lot; usually full around the time school lets out.
Other Thoughts: - The locals call this course "The practice facility", and that's exactly what it is. Each hole offers a lot of different lines to practice without the risk of losing a disc or taking forever to find it. Not a very difficult course, but a great course to hit up on the way home from work, or to practice some drives or putting.

- Not a course I would drive out of my way for unless you plan on playing other courses in the area.

Pros: great course for a quick 9, doable in under 40mins, great to work back into your throw, water fountain near the tennis courts
Cons: watch out for the kiddys, #1 runs right along a path to the school/parking lot

Pros: -Entry level Rec Park Course. Fantastic Beginner course, that is good for Beginners, Casual, and Non-players. It's also a good for practice, improving ones game.

-Concrete Tee's, Tee Signs, map at start and it appeared there were Alternate pin placements. (Very nice well made sign at the start with map and distances.)

-It's a simple layout in an open field with a few trees to work around. Azalea has very easy navigation and allows for a quick simple round.

-Short to Fair lengths. Averages 200-250ft, giving it 2155ft

-Good Pin locations. They allow for one to opt for multiple lines around trees.

-Surprisingly, it had a decent fun factor. I would be happy if this course were in my neighborhood
Cons: -It's really too small to have a whole lot of cons. It is what it is.

-Some may find this course too simple and easy.

-Park attendees are very prone to walking in, around, and across the course.

-School across the street, which could cause some excess traffic on the course and on the way to the course. Mind the time of day you are in the area.

-It's way off the beaten path for travelers looking to add another notch on the belt
Other Thoughts: This is a simple rec park course. It's in an open field and it will be shared with other activities and park goers. This park isn't so much for the traveler, but for the local neighborhood. I played here to add the notch to my proverbial "Played" belt, but to my surprise I found I was having a good time playing here. Personally, there was a decent fun factor. That may be relative to the person playing here. I have an affinity for fun little 9 holers. Others may not share that same sentiment. This is the kind of course where I could see a bunch of my friends getting together to play. Friends that may not be regulars, but enjoy throwing a disc around every now and then.

Final Thought: If you are adding courses to your played list in the Clearwater/St Pete area, and you don't mind driving out of your way a little bit for a small course, then swing over and check it out. If you live in the neighborhood, you've got a nice little place to play.

Pros: this course is very open. great for beginners to get out and learn the game. good signage. no mistaking where youre throwing.
Cons: only 9 holes. a little too much space. not much of a challenge to even the slightly experienced player
Other Thoughts: cant complain though. at least the city is doing something for the dg community

 New WCDGD course

Pros: A recreational level course in a grassy area with sparse tree coverage. Absolutely no underbrush. Not a single tree was cut or trimmed to install this course. Grate pattern on the tee pads provide excellent traction. 'Next tee' arrows hang below each basket for easy navigation. Alt pins are planned. Plenty of room for 'unofficial' blue-level tees and gorilla fairways. Parents can see entire course from many vantage points.
Cons: Short tee pads (only 4'x8') were requested. Not much topography. Definitely NOT enough room for 18 quality holes without serious safety issues. May be tough to play when school lets out across the street. Some nice areas by tennis courts were not used for safety considerations.
Other Thoughts: The course will provide a nice challenge for beginners and plays a little harder than it looks for accomplished players. Many fairways offer multiple routes. Rec center will check out discs during regular business hours. More tree plantings and benches have been suggested.
