Pros:
Many chances to throw over/near water with a) a reasonable chance to retrieve your disc if it finds the drink, or b) bailout areas, typically to the left, if the distance seems too long.

Golden spoke to point you towards the next tee.
Cons:
Like most courses in Florida located in a multi-purpose park, it is 1) flat, and 2) offers a few chances to negatively interact with other park users. A few holes have you throwing down paved paths.
Other Thoughts:
Course plays in a clockwise fashion around the fields, courts, and parking lots of a public, multi-purpose park. For the most part, the course plays next to the woods, and over the water retention basins, that form an outer rim around the various playing areas.

About 1/3rd of the holes have you throwing over these water retention basins. Some are short (under 200'), but others are long (over 300'), and nearly all offer a bailout position to the left (#6 is to the right), but not too far, or you'll find the edge of the woods.

Speaking of "to-the-left", about half of the non-water holes play fairly similarly to each other, treeline to the left, open to the right, a straight drive with a variable amount of left fade needed to reach the basket. A couple of very short, very-treed holes, a righty, and an a S-shape round out the lineup.

Navigation: finding the closest parking lot to tee-1 was the biggest challenge. Find the tennis courts, behind it the basketball courts, behind it the shuffleboard area (hole-2) plays over the back of it), and find the closest parking lot to the shuffleboard. Otherwise, the course has a simple, clockwise flow, with 5, 16-18 across the street. It makes total sense to play #18 between 4 and 5, thereby finishing with #17.

Fun play. Playing here often will strengthen your resolve, or have you owning a set of water discs.

Pros: Beginner friendly course. Very easy to to shoot 10-14 under. Good use of the water.
Cons: Very short concrete tee pads. Most of them stick up several inches off the ground.
Other Thoughts: Be careful where you step. Lots of snakes on the course because of the water.
