Pros:
A (relatively) open, flat, and short (141'-226', average ~190') 6=hole course useful for introducing people to disc golf. Nice baskets and good teesigns.
Cons:
As this course is geared towards beginners, there are some "danger" areas:
- Horshoe pit (don't know how often it is used) to left of fairway-1 / behind basket-6.
- Shule, and much farther away, a road, along the right side of fairway-3.
- Thick shule quite close along the entire left side of fairway-5 - a very natural place for a beginning RHBH player to throw. This will probably cause the most problems, i.e. disc searches.
- Fenced-off area along right side of fairway-6.

Bit of a chokepoint as players move from 3 to 4, then 5 to 6, as they all share same path. Players at tee-5 will need to be aware of people exiting the wooded path on their way to tee
Other Thoughts:
This new course, designed by the Scarboro Hills (great course!) gang, should prove quite useful to introducing people to the game of disc golf. While baskets 1, 2, and 6 are completely unguarded, number-3 has a few well-placed small hardwoods and a few pines to force some shot-shaping, number-4 is a tunnel (short distance and generous window) shot, and number-5 has shule to the left, some trees straight/right, to avoid on the way slightly downslope to the basket.. Experienced players should have multiple ace runs and enjoy a birdy-fest.

The on-line map is useful to avoid any confusion as to which basket to throw, and shows how holes 4&5 are on the other side of the narrow strip of woods. Combined with the tall, blue teeposts, the course was easy enough to navigate.

This is a tough course to rate. As a place/way to introduce kids and newbies to the game, it is fine, but it has little replay value, except for maybe glo or safari, for a player beyond complete novice level.
