Pros:
Beautiful little park course. Easy to navigate without a map. Concrete tee pads are smallish in size, but for these short holes most players won't use a big run-up anyway. Well designed on not a lot of land. There shouldn't be any pedestrian interference. Plays fast with close, short holes and not a lot of walking. Almost impossible to lose a disc.
Cons:
No distances posted on any of the signs. Exceptionally short course; eight of the nine holes are between 100'-200'. Fairways are close to each other so beware of errant throws from your neighbors. Some of the single chain (except #9 is 2x) baskets are starting to show their age.
Other Thoughts:
I heard this course is called the "postage stamp" because of its compact area. Only hole #5 (312') might require a driver disc, all others can be played with a putter or good mid-range.

At 30 years old now Ken Caryl is a testament to what disc golf once was. The holes are built for discs that had no concept of "Ultra-long range driver".

There are enough challenges and decent variety to make this a nice course to work on upshots and putting for most players.

Pros: Great for working on Approach and putting. Short holes are good for beginners. Playing over mowed grass! Good place to practice playing around trees. Good Baskets and Tees!
Cons: Cigarette butts all over the place as teens use this place to throw discs and smoke. Very little distance.
Other Thoughts: This is a good course because a lot of people started here. Now they are playing on the bigger courses!
