Very nice park, mediocre course
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: This is a new, unique course. It features solid DGA baskets and holes that go in and out of a wooded area of a park. Here is a list of the main pros:
*Good use of available land. The course is not confined to a tiny space. Instead the fairways take you around a very nice park with lots to do besides disc golf.
*Several shots off the tee bring potential OB areas into play, making the golfer decide whether they should play it safe and trust their putts or go for it (usually for an ace run!)
*Half the course is wooded, half is open allowing for an okay mix of holes
Cons: I rarely give 18 hole courses a 2.5 rating, but there were a lot of things that fell in the "cons" category at this one:
*Distances are not challenging in the wooded holes whatsoever. Other courses have wooded holes are short because they demand challenging lines to be hit. Not the case here. They are all just wide enough that you can pick your favorite shot and run an ace at them (around 180 feet apiece)
*Hole 10 is very bad. It is wildly short and completely wide open. I think it was about 110.
*Signs here are nondescript, or sometimes inaccurate. One of the holes was listed as 783' or something, and it really is about 550' at most (or maybe i can throw 650 ft!!!!)
*Not isolated from the park at all... brings baseball fields, soccer fields, and paths into play. leads to some significant safety issues as well as the loss of the "isolation factor" that I personally enjoy in a disc golf course.
Other Thoughts: Don't go out of your way to play this one, but Heritage Park is a quick fun 18 hole course that is worth playing if you are in the area.
