Pros: - Course is set in a large city park that has a pond, a creek, and some woods. There are a lot of other activities, but they are well separated from the disc golf. A few benches and stuff are spread among the course, there might be some interference.
- Many holes at the course play by a creekbed, with sloping terrain. #1 plays over the creek, #2's green slopes right towards the creek, and #11 and #12 also have baskets with the creek on the left. Definite possibility to roll in, even on a decent approach. Two holes also play over a small pond, #8 has water on the left, with trees on the right, #9 plays directly over the pond with the creek way behind the basket. Definitely a hazard!
- Holes make good use of the available woods to force line shaping. #2 is set up for a LHBH hyzer, #10 is a tight RHBH hyzer, #11 is a RHBH flick line, #14 is a sharp hyzer around some rough OR a big anny around the rough, definitely need to be accurate to avoid trouble. Mostly trees, but some nasty rough on #13 and #14.
- Remainder of the holes are pretty wide open, with one or no trees to worry about. #3, #4, #7, #15, #17, and #18 are open to almost any line. #5 and #6 are even more open, with fences on the right to worry about. There are some blind pins out here, and lots of gradual elevation changes, it is a good place for airing out drives for anybody.
- A few baskets are in troublesome areas, like by the creek, on slopes, behind trees or rough, and there is even some sort of meshing by #10's basket. Park road comes in play as well, for some extra OB.
- Good mix of hole length. The open bombers are obviously very long, #8 with water is still 490', #13 in the woods at 406', among the regular length ones.
- Natural tees are in good shape, and baskets are top notch. Signs are OK, some are pointed in different directions, but it's not too bad. Map helps for navigation. Good practice basket location by some trees.
Cons: - A lot of open holes here, pure grip and rip. I would say that 8 of the holes don't need any specific line, a hyzer from either direction is fine. Some artificial OB (roads/fences) is the real challenge, along with the long hole lengths.
- Bench is literally in the circle of #5's basket. Might want to move that...
Other Thoughts: - The interesting holes provide good fun, and challenge. The ones by the creek and the lake have real danger, and are set up well to make it really count. The two in the woods aren't too shabby either. But, the ones in the open are very bland, even with elevation changes and a few trees. Even so, a solid course that should challenge beginners and experienced players alike.
