Pros: The course plays through a nicely groomed multi-use park. There is a nice mix of hole lengths, with several shorter holes, some in the long but reachable range, and one 600' shot that offers a chance to air out a max distance drive. Many of the holes have some trees in play offering some interesting lines. The creek offers some risk on a few holes. There is a good map at the beginning of the course, it's worth taking a picture of to help with navigation. The rubber tees are fine, and are level with the surrounding ground so you can runup from off the pad. The baskets are fairly new and in good shape.
Cons: The course is pretty straightforward, most holes have multiple lines and simple hyzer shots will suffice for the majority of the holes. There are some minor safety issues with a baseball field and walking path in play. There is a really long walk back to the car at the end of the course, making for awkward flow if you want to play multiple rounds.
Other Thoughts: This course might be a little long for true beginners, but it doesn't offer too much punishment for errant shots and is definitely approachable for novice to intermediate players. Experienced throwers won't find a ton of different challenges, there's some nice length but you don't really have to hit specific lines to be successful here.

Pros: - Course is set in a pretty big park that has a good amount of other activities going on, with baseball fields, a basketball court, and such. Seems to be pretty well separated except for one hole by the outfield fences, shouldn't be any other interferences.
- Decent mix of trees and forest on most holes to provide some challenge. #1 is friendly to a RHBH anhyzer, #3 involves going through or around a grove of trees, #4 has a low ceiling with woods on the right, #8 is a shot out of some plinko trees (roller friendly?), and #9 has forest directly behind the pin. Some of the rough here is very brutal, and can easily rob a par, especially on the longer holes.
- Small creek runs next to some holes, like #2, #5, and #6 in a big way - there are a lot of trees on the left, and the creek gets especially nasty down by the pin with rough and piles of concrete.
- Great mix of hole lengths, there are some shorter holes for some ace runs, like #2 and #9. #8 is shorter but has lots of obstacles. On the other hand, there is the 650' bomber hole for everyone to throw a driver, that still has obstacles and rough to worry about. A few up at 370' as well.
- OK Baskets (Discnation), rubber teepads aren't terrible, tee signs non-existent. Map at the beginning is good and definitely necessary.
Cons: - Terrain here is pretty much as flat as it gets, from start to finish. Makes those other 'flat' courses not seem so bad.
- Nearly every hole is open to a straightish shot, or has a wide berth one way or another. #8 is the one exception with the wall of trees off the tee. Just a typical feature of this kind of park course.
- There is a looong walk back to the parking lot after hole #9. Ah well.
Other Thoughts: - Overall, a fun course that has a wide variety of park style holes. From fairly wide open shots, to some longer holes with trees, to a tough bomber hole, and a hole with a wall of trees to get through, a lot of different shots to be found. A great course for beginners to learn the ropes, including staying far away from the creekbed. Not too shabby for casual players either.
