Pros: new baskets, very challenging, will humble you if make a mistake. great potential as the course matures and open up some throwing lanes. great elevation changes
Cons: tees are rough, a lot of rocks and roots make it hard to get a run up on tee shots, very tight, miss the fairway by even a few feet and you could lose a disc
Other Thoughts: in time this will be a premier course and will fit nicely with cedarock, wellspring and johnson street

quite a walk!
Pros: This is a brand new course. The tees are still natural, but there are tee signs and arrows on the baskets pointing you to the next hole. This course is a tale of two 9's. The first 9 are very short (all but one hole is under 200'), but very tight. The use of elevation is excellent. The back nine is mostly open and much longer. However, while most holes are "open", their is only about a 30' wide mowed fairway. The rough is 4-5' high grass and looks ready to eat some plastic. Navigation is manageable, if a bit confusing the first time. This course took me ~1.5 hours to play solo with quite a bit of time spend looking for disc in the rough on the back nine, so you will get your exercise!
Cons: Given this course is brand spanking new, the cons should be taken with a grain of salt. The front nine is amazingly tight and some trees need to be removed. Even with the arrows pointing you in the right direction, navigation is tricky in a couple of places. Just trust the arrow and keep going util you find the right tee.
The natural tees are very short, unlevel, and some are right up on drop offs (especially on the front nine). I spoke to a park employee and they do plan to put in concrete tees, so this shouldn't be an issue in the future. The rough on the back nine is brutal -- plan to spend time looking for your disc and use bright colors!
Other Thoughts: This course places a premium on accuracy due to the tightness of the first 9 and the extreme rough on the back. I would recommend not wearing sandals as I spent quite a while picking off hitchhikers. The park itself has more than enough for the family to do with hiking, fishing, canoeing, a pool, playgrounds, horseshoe pits, etc. The course has very good bones and will only improve with time. The park website says there is also a 6 hole beginner / kiddy course (though I didn't find it), that maps will be available soon, and mentions plans to install a championship course., Northeast Park has the potential to be a wonderful place for a day of disc golf.
