Pros: while only one of the holes comes close to 200 feet in distance, the volume of trees really makes for some technical shots. You can play this course 3 times in less than an hour.
Cons: it is on the back end of an elementary school, so it can only be played during non-school hours.
Other Thoughts: this is a great place to practice that mid to short game. I recommend this course if you happen to be in the area.

Do You Like Dunking On 8 Foot Baskets?
5 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: The HCP Disc Golf Course (HCP stands for the woman who the elementary school is named after, Helen or Harriet Clarke Powers) plays around the athletic field at the elementary school.
The course is another of these courses in miniature, designed for elementary kids. The holes range from 65' to 182'. It has excellent tee signs giving the hole #, distance, par and a sponser. The smaller concrete tees are very adequate for the shots needed here. You're playing in the woods so it's nice and shady.
Basket # 1 is missing and it seems to have been missing for quite some time.
Hole #'s 3, 5 and 9 are the only really easy ACE looks. The other holes, although short, are mostly just easy birdie ops.
Cons: The missing # 1 basket is a shame. The course doesn't loop but finishes with # 9 at the far end of the fields. I threw numerous rounds here chasing that cheap ACE mostly concentrating on 3, 5 and 9. I hit chains, poles, trees but no ACES.
If you're looking for a challenge or a workout, this probably isn't the course for you.
Other Thoughts: This is no destination course but it's a great place to bring the newbie, girlfriend, or to come chasing ACES. Replacing # 1's 75' ACE run basket would certainly add to the course's appeal.
This course might be a little overrated (cough, cough.....giggle, giggle) thanks to a couple of 5's given but ignore that and enjoy it for what it is. A fun little course designed with elementary kids in mind.
Do you like playing hoops on 8 foot baskets and imagining you're in the NBA? Makes you feel like Dwight Howard dunking on those, right? Yeah, we all do! Well hitting chains off the tee on this course makes me feel like I'm Dave Feldberg playing in a pro event. Same idea!
