Pros: - Located in a well manicured park with tons of playground activities, walking paths, etc. and surrounded by suburban homes, with backyards adjacent to the course. Great fun on site for the whole family. Mostly a giant glorified lawn, Maryknoll desperately tries to bring some gently rolling elevation into play, and uses as many of the few trees available, but mostly this is wide open golf.
- Great amenities. Outstanding concrete tees (although #7's tee is already badly cracked). Okay signs list the hole number and distance, but take the listed distances with a grain of salt, as they are off badly in spots.
- Decent enough distance to create a bit of a challenge for beginners or very casual players. Open enough, and probably infrequently used, so ideal for field practice.
Cons: - Several holes play dangerously close to each other. #6's tee lies directly in the kill zone of noob hyzers thrown from #5's tee.
- Open for the most part, and pretty mindless. Too long in the distance department for beginners to have rewarding birdie chances, but short and open enough for most to save pars. Too short for experienced players to get much of a challenge past one-disc rounds or safari golf.
- Goose excrement covers most of the course. I realize there's not much the course designers can do about this problem; regardless, its presence always detracts from a round in my opinion. Hopefully, it's a occasional seasonal occurrence.
Other Thoughts: - It looks as though there was a slight redesign on a few holes that pushed the course back from some of the surrounding private properties. #7's tee might have been moved, resulting in the cracked concrete pad. A redesign would also explain why several signs list blatantly wrong distances.
- Be on the look-out for neighborhood dog walkers, joggers, etc.

Pros: -solid pads
-next to impossible to lose a disc
-a good place for beginners to learn how to throw
-good place to learn a new disc
-tons of milfs around the park
Cons: -hole 4 is the only hole that you have to think about your shot and you can shoot around the few trees on that hole if you want to
-if you have a bad throw you are looking through peoples backyards
-a short 9 hole
-i do not think that the distances on the holes are accurate
- hole 6 was the best hole on the course but they moved the pad out from under some big oak trees into an open field to make it just like 7 of the other shots at the course
Other Thoughts: this course is not much of a play it is the closest course to my house so i go there every once and a while mainly just to try out new discs with no chance of losing them or to work on new grips and flicks but if you are trying to teach a friend how to play this would not be a bad place to bring them as long as you don't have to drive to far
