Pros: Plays through a well maintained park. Some of the wooded holes offer a fun challenge.
Played early morning in spring and saw plenty of other discers, i can imagine its more bustling in the summer.
Smells like dreams.
Birdies and Aces should be very obtainable for low-intermediate players and up.
tees and baskets are often surrounded by wood chips
Cons: Very short holes.
Poorly laid out and confusing, lack of use of space. It really could be a 12-18 hole course if they would use unused spaces (especially between 3 and 4)
Baskets could use some T.L.C.
most baskets are straight shots with few obstacles.
No tee/basket signage.
expect a good amount of walking to 6 from 5 and from 9 back to 1
Other Thoughts: A fun short course once you have figured out the layout, Plays through a nice forested park. You may want to bring a map to figure out navigation. great course to introduce someone new to the sport. Still not kidding about it smelling like dreams, maybe thats just me though.

Pros: Mostly wooded course presents a good challenge to try out different throws, but not too frustrating.
Nice to walk in the shade during the summer.
Decent mix of short technical lines and midrange drives.
Holes 1-5 also function as a mini course/circuit if you want to cycle through a few times and hone your game.
Cons: Can get crowded at times.
Signage is nonexistent. There is a pdf map on the park website but you can't tell forest from fields on it...
You will see some trash, cig butts, and maybe even some broken beer bottles... wish people would take better care of this otherwise lovely park.
Other Thoughts: I really like this park. As a novice it presents just the right challenge. I can see how it might get a bit boring for more seasoned players though. There are some picnic sites and is a great place to bring the family or a group of friends for lunch and a few rounds.

If going for the 1st time Google the park and print the PDF map & score card. Otherwise ask/follow the locals to make the leap from hole 5 to 6.

Pros: Great tee pads.
Ground cover was cleared in most places.
Tree cover over most holes.
Short holes are great for newer players.
Cons: No tee signage.
Hard to navigate without a map.
Can be crowded during peak times.
Short holes are too easy for experienced players.
Other Thoughts: We really enjoyed this course, so much that we played through three times. We were surprised to see in not as crowded as usual on a Sunday morning, but we did get there very early, and it got busier as the day went on. The tree canopy made it nice even when it started to sprinkle. Also, the lack of ground cover, made it easy to keep a sight line on the disc.
Several times while walking between holes we commented on how much of the space was under utilized. You could easily put in eighteen holes here without changing the layout. The distance between hole 3's basket, and hole 4's tee could have easily made a great hole, and there were several places throughout the park that you could add to, instead of trucking a ways between holes.
Overall the park was clean, and the course played very nicely, even when it started to get busy in the afternoon. We will definitely be back!

 A fun place to play

Pros: - Fun hole layout
- Good shot requirement
- Somewhat rewarding birdie opportunities
- Minimal rough to lose a disc
- Beautiful Park
- Sense of seclusion
- Decent cobblestone pads
- Baskets were in good shape
Cons: - Very crowded
- Course is somewhat short
- No tee signs
- Awful navigation issues
- Some holes may have other activities that interfere.
Other Thoughts: Cornwall Park is a diamond in the rough. It plays mostly through large fir trees with a few shots that are a little more open. The course layout is extremely fun. It requires several different shots to score well. Yet, some of the holes have multiple lines to chose from that presents some risk/reward decisions. The fairways are ideal. They are wide enough for a wide range of players to hit consistently, yet tight enough to punish bad shots.

Unfortunately, this course gets very crowded and it is located in a multi-use park. Other activities can produce some conflicts and with the heavy traffic, be prepared to wait for other groups ahead. Navigation is a serious issue here especially between 5 and 6 (see explanation later if you plan on playing here), tee signs and signs directing players where to walk could help a lot. Don't be afraid to ask the locals for help finding the next tee, they are friendly and willing to help. The course is also a little short and may bore more skilled players that are looking for a challenge.

Due to the fact that it is only a 9 hole course with tee pads and better navigation this course could only be a 4 out 5 for me. With that said, the fun factor at this course is very high and the park is beautiful. It is not a destination course, but definitely one of the best 9 hole courses I have played. It is worth a stop if you are in the area.

Hole 5 to 6 directions: Continue to follow the path for a long way. It will travel to the left of a parking lot, at the end of the parking lot there is a little turn around, and the pad is slightly to the left of the turn around and the holes throws down the gravel bike path with the basket tucked slightly to the right.

Pros: Located in a good family park! Maintained well! Respectable players. Course borders the park, with nearly no interference from park's activities.
Cons: Course not marked well. First time there, it's kinda confusing as to where to go.
Other Thoughts: Not a very hard 9 hole. I'm not all that good, but I average 4 under par without breaking a sweat. Still a fun course though.

Pros: This course is set in a very nice park with tall evergreens in a well groomed park. The locals are friendly and will point you in the right direction. Tee pads are in great shape and give plenty of room. A nice mixture of open and blocked pins
Cons: No real distance to air it out on this course as said before. This course is only 9 holes it would be nice if there were alt tee pads to at least make 18. The traffic can be heavy, but still acceptable park is well used by all people.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course for a beginner or to take the family and play a round. There is no real elevation changes and should be a fun outing for everyone.
