Pros:
Not crowded with other golfers.
The park is very well groomed.
Good addition for Treasure Valley winter golfers, especially for beginners.
Cons:
Not enough trees to create challenges on most holes (the park is relatively new, so this should improve as the trees grow)
Grass tee pads.
There are houses right on the edge of 3 sides of the park, so the designers had to avoid shots toward these neighborhoods. Unfortunately, the best tree obstacles are located by the houses. This eliminated some nice potential basket locations.
Other Thoughts:
This is an easy short course that should boost the confidence of beginning players. You could combine it with nearby Settlers Park for a nice afternoon of golf. I think this course might be fun at night, so I'm planning on bringing my light sticks and glow discs next time I play.

Great teaching location

Pros: - Good baskets for a small local course.
- Course layout is understandable with each hole making its way around the baseball field.
- Good varying distances for a beginner course, I taught my cousin in law who is 8 how to play disc golf here and he had a good time. The course is not daunting at all for a new player.
Tee signs for each hole make understanding the course very easy.
Cons: - This is a very simple course. If it weren't for teaching someone how to play this course would have been very boring.
- Hole 7 goes right across the back side of the baseball field where it made the hole a bit more awkward as a game was being played.
- No actual tee pads. Assumed playing from one side or the other of the tee sign.
Other Thoughts: I love seeing a busy local park with people playing other sports at least glance over and take interest in people playing disc golf. Perking peoples interest in the sport and maybe introducing someone new is always good!

 Great mid-range practice

Pros: Great practice for mid-range shots, and placement throws. sweet local spot for people to learn the game. No crowds. Great use of available obstacles/terrain.
Cons: short, think 15 minutes to play the 9. No distance, anything over a mid-range is overkill. Out of the way unless you live or work in the area. The course moves counterclockwise so it is prejudicial for RHBH throwers.
Other Thoughts: Small, seasonal, local 9 hole. Check it out if you are in the area, but not a road-trip destination by any means. There is a playground and two ball softball fields so be careful of other park users, especially children, nobody seems to notice that there are baskets and/or flying plastic.

 Nice Neighborhood Course

Pros: These are good quality baskets and tee signs in a small well maintained community park. The course does what it can with very limited terrain.

If you live nearby: nice for keeping the rust off your game in the winter and introducing new people to the game.
Cons: Flat. Mostly short. Mostly obstacle free.
Other Thoughts: Not really worth making a special trip to play (unless you are a completist).

Pros: This is a good beginners course. It is very forgiving with almost no obstacles at all. If you are just starting out you will not have to worry about losing any discs here. It is also nice for anyone who lives in Meridian to have a course near home. A good easy practice course.
Cons: If you have played much disc golf it might be boring for you. Most of the holes are pretty short and like I said before there are hardly any obstacles.
