Quick Short Easy 6 Hole
Pros: -Baskets in pretty good shape
-Nice park area surrounded by apartments
-Every hole provides a chance for an ace run
-Very easy to navigate and you will spend very little time looking for the next hole. Course flows well.
-Good place to practice your mid-range or putter game
-Good place to introduce new players to the game
-One or two holes have a slight bit of elevation change on them
-Hole 5 is a nice change from the rest of the course as it provides a sorta tunnel shot.
-They used the small piece of land they had available for this course pretty well
-Can easily play a round in 15 minutes if you don't have much time and want to get a quick round in.
Cons: -Very short holes (The longest hole is about 250 ft and most are a lot shorter than that)
-All of the holes are mostly straight shots with very few obstacles
-Doesn't provide any challenge really at all
-Can get a little boring and repetitive for intermediate or advanced players.
-Lots of other park activities in the area like horseshoes could make some holes unplayable if there are other park users
-There are a few fenced areas to lose your disc in if you have a bad shot
-The river area on the north side of the park, was overgrown even in the winter and would be a very easy spot to lose a disc in.
-A few of the baskets are really close to tee-pads and fairways cross a little bit. If there is more than one group on the course, there could be some conflicts and I would keep an eye out for incoming discs.
-No tee-signs just posts with numbers on them (not as a big deal since you can easily see all of the baskets from the tee-pads and there is not doubt as to what hole you are throwing to)
-The tee-pads are carpet and will eventually wear away, become un-level or disappear.
-Hole 4 plays alongside a fairly busy road that a disc could easily fly into.
Other Thoughts: The spot of land this course occupies is not very ideal for a disc golf course. If the area is crowded it could be very hard to play the course. Good for beginners and practicing your short range game but not much else. Don't go out of your way to play this course.

Good place for locals to practice
Pros: This is a six hole course that was designed for use by the residents of the adjacent apartment complex. The design does a very good job using a small piece of property to provide a solid putter and mid-range workout.
Each of the holes is unique and the difficulty is such that players of all abilities can enjoy playing and work on their games.
In terms of using the available space effectively I would give the designer a 5/5.
Cons: This course was not designed to receive heavy traffic. It really shouldn't be listed on this site. I played a round with the designer and he indicated that he did not want the course listed.
Other Thoughts: Don't be a dirty discer; leave the course cleaner than the way you found it.
