Not a destination course

Pros: The pros and cons of this course have been nicely summarized by others below so I will not repeat them all. This is the course I first went to in order to see if I would like disc gofl. Someone kindly donated me a disc to try when they saw I came with a Master Frisbee. I tossed it around and got hooked on the sport. That is the beauty of these community courses. They are in local communities to get individuals and families a fun thing to do. And that is exactly what this course does. It is clear the community took time to do a course and are doing their best to keep it up. They did not just build it and neglect it as some communities might. They have done an okay job with the space they have. I usually only play the first seven holes and there is some challenge in each of these first seven holes. But after that there is not much creativity and far too many people walking around. I actually wonder if because of safety reasons these last holes will eventually get removed.
Cons: The one hope I would have is that tee boxes were kept up a little better or paved. But you can often stand next to them to throw if they are too bad. As mentioned by others, the first three holes do overlap so you need to watch out for others and their discs. The last holes do not really add anything interesting and they are in high used portions of the park. Lots of safety issues here!
Other Thoughts: In summary, this is a okay course for what it is. If you are on this site looking for cool new courses to travel to and play (that is how I use this site), then this is one to skip. It is not a destination course. It will offer you nothing new. It will frustrate you in terms of layout. There are much better even short 9-hole community course in the area that you should go to for a much better experience - Campton Hills, Sunny Hill Park, and Randall Oaks and all much better. But this city should be celebrated for taking the time to provide this course to their residents and keeping it up. As one who is local I will still be using it and hope the city continues to keep at least the first section. Even though I give a very low rating, it does not reflect the courses value to the community.
