Pros: nice signage
good for a quick round
variety of wooded and open holes
3 holes are wide open bombers
Cons: first 6 holes are pretty short and unimaginative
dirt tees
Other Thoughts: being close to Jaycee makes it ideal for a quick run of both courses. Back 9 is much better than front nine, probably due to limited size space. good for a quick round and course wont intimidate a newbee too much

Pros: - Great for beginners or people trying to disc down and be successful

-Mandos

-Many Different types of shots.(Short treed shots, long field shots, and water shots)

-Signs
Cons: -Can be short for some people

-The field shots (8,9,10) can be hot if playing in hot weather

-The Water is the grosses water I've ever seen.

- A few of the tee pads have roots in them, and all natural tee pads.

Other Thoughts: Its a nice little short course, there can be people walking dogs but didn't seem like a problem when we were there. Hole 2 is kind of hard to find, it's to the left of the basket for hole 1. A lot of nice shots and a good amount of ace shots here too . The wind can play into the holes field holes a lot also. Sometimes you will kind condoms and other random stuff on the tee pads and other places. Between hole 4 and 5 can be really muddy or worse sometimes.

A Halfway Decent Course

Pros: I like the layouts for some of these holes, including the 14th and 15th. The trees make for some tough obstacles throughout this course, especially for the holes in the woods (about half the holes are in the woods). Those holes encourage you to focus more on accuracy with your drives, and the trees can sometimes set you up for some tricky putts and approach shots. The open holes are a little longer and have nice grassy fairways. There's a pond which comes into play on the 15th hole and kind of also the 17th hole. The 1st and 10th baskets are each located on top of a small mound, and there's a nice, scenic design for the area around the 10th and 18th baskets.
Cons: Having no cement tee pads is a big negative to me, and the signs for each hole aren't very helpful (to top it off, they're all covered in graffiti). I'm utterly baffled as to why there's no bridge for players to use to cross over that big muddy creek between holes 4 and 5. Most of the holes in the woods are extremely short and narrow, and some of them have almost no fairways for players to use. Two of them are so short that the baskets can be reached with a putter on your opening drive. Some of the wooded holes are real close to each other, so be on the lookout for flying discs on a busy day. Also, the ground on the wooded holes is mostly dirt with big roots sticking out. On the flip side, most of the holes outside the woods are too wide open and really lack obstacles. With all that said, I feel like this course is too "black and white" - the holes are either heavily wooded or really open. It's nice that it doesn't favor one side over the other, but the problem is that it doesn't blend the two together, with the exception of only a few holes. You basically go from one extreme to the other. Also, the 18th fairway is inconveniently located next to a shelter, so you need to be careful with your opening drive when people are using that shelter.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this park provides a nice environment for disc golf, and it's a halfway decent course for players who live in this area. There are some challenging holes that I like, but for the most part this seems more like a beginner-friendly course due to it's short length on the wooded holes and lack of obstacles on the holes outside the woods. Some of the wooded holes, however, can be frustrating to play because of how poorly they're set up.

 Good Mix

Pros: About half the holes are through the woods and the other half are in the open. None are particularly long, although a couple mandos give you a little more challenge. Water comes into play on a couple holes. First and last holes (and #10) have some interesting landscaping, but can be frustrating for approaches and putts.
Cons: Can be muddy in the spring, and wind can be an issue on the open holes around the turn. Not a fun course for lefties, as almost all the holes favor a right hander, especially the mandos.
