Pros: great course to learn on
nice course for kids (playable and beautiful playground)
mix of open and wooded holes
even a beginner can score on
quick 9 hole rounds(20-25 minutes)
map on each hole
scorecards at first tee
Cons: plays short
heavy, heavy summer brush just off fairways
just one set of tees
gravel tee pads can be sketchy; slippery at times
Other Thoughts: This is the course that my daughter and I learned to play on. For what the course is it is nice. Course plays short and big arms will find little challenge. Course is a great place to learn to throw and learn how to make puts. It is a really great course for kids to play and walk. My younger daughter (5 years old) regularly walks the course just fine. Course plays up and down a large hill then winds through some lightly wooded area. The main complaint about the course is the the lack of mowing during the summer. The plain township parks department mows the fairways all summer long but just off the fairways there is no mowing at all. This leads to high dense weeds, brambles and scratch grass. In places this can reach waist high. Try to keep good sight lines on your discs to prevent losing them.
#1- uphill straight shot. Looks like this year they are not mowing in front of the basket so it requires a straight carry over this area.
#2-downhill straight shot back to parking area. Definitely ace-able and easy birdie. (still waiting for that ace)
#3- straight shot that goes uphill and then back down. Basket is tucked in trees. Try to get disc to crest hill and you'll have a good look at birdie.
#4- uphill straight shot. Lot of hill to carry.
#5- Signature hole. Starts on top of hill the anhyzers past big grove of trees. There is a gap you can hit but if you through a solid disc it can normally make it through trees down to lower level. Hard hole but normally play this one pretty good.
#6-Hyzer shot that goes approx. 230 feet and takes hard left
#7-my nemesis. Hole is very straight tunnel shot with heavy rough both right and left of trees. Immensely easier then #5 but this hole kills me every time.
#8- Downhill short shot through trees. Easy birdie and big time ace-able hole.
#9- Fairly straight shot through light forest. Two tunnel trees you must clear approx. 20 ft. off tee. Hard part about this hole is tee box is built on very unsteady sloping ground so the tee is not level at all. Make sure you get good footing so you don't slip and hurt self.
Just north of hole #9 dumps back into parking lot. Pictures that are up now don't due justice to how far the course has come. I'm working on getting some new ones up to show how course looks now. Best advice I can give is to make sure you wear pants or your going to have some extremely itchy legs if you spray disc at all. Nice course to learn on.

Work in progress
Pros: Brand new park
People very friendly
Bathrooms ( porto's)
Gravel tee pads
Cons: No signage or map .
Tall grass will make finding errant shots a real chore
Other Thoughts: I've put together a map using Google earth as best i can . Course was built on the idea of Glen Oaks PE program, and introducing high schoolers to disc golf.
Mosty tees are marked with orange lawn flags
The first tee starts off at the bottom hill in the parking lot shoots straight up . From that basket up and to the right is the tee for 2, which shoots back down the hill.
For the most part the course plays back and forth . Hole 3 is the longest.
Hole 4's tee starts behind the tree line, and shoots up hill. WHile 5's hole does the same thing going back the other way through a gap in the tree line.
Hole 5 is the longest on the course plays down past the tree line and right
in the back corner of the park there is a gap in the tree line...7's tee starts back there and plays straight down a path. Toughest hole on the course IMO.
8 is total Ace run , gotta be less than 100 ft....take a left from the basket and walk till you come to a path, take a left and follow till you come to a gravel tee pad which will be 9
9 plays through a narrow set of trees
Fairways are looking much better. This already better than Boettler . 8 and 9 already Gravel tees in, and the holes are dug for the rest to be put in sometime this week
But i think this will be another fun 9hole-er when its fully complete and trimmed.
