Pros: 9 holes with long and short pads that most have different lines.
Lots of water in play (if you like that, which I do).
Beautiful well-kept park.
Some really challenging holes.
Cons: I really can't think of any cons. Maybe hole 3 long didn't have much of a fairway, so I chucked a giant anhyser over the short pad. Figured why bother with that river!
More trees on some of the open holes possibly?
Other Thoughts: This was my 7th course played on the day and I only played it due to having daylight left. Glad I did! It was a real blast! The wind really picked up on the last two holes which helped my new Nuke stay straight on Long 8 to park it.
I did see two lines on Long 1. I chose to take the middle line, but did not make it through! Step up your game Indydiscgolf!
Glad it's listed as a 9-holer and not an 18 hole course with 9 baskets and dual tee pads. It's a solid 9 hole course I will play again.

Pros: DISCatchers with two pin placements and two concrete tee pads per hole. The first four holes play next to Mudd Creek (on your right) with mature trees and some younger growth. Holes 5,6,7 are the open holes with #7 over 600'! Holes 8,9 finish with Mudd Creek,again on your right,and more mature trees. From the Red tees,and the DISCatchers in the "A" position,the course plays shorter and a little easier, With them a little farther away from the creek. Good for kids & newbies, But will still challenge. From the blue tees and in the "B" placement the course will force you to test your "Tech" ability. With the mature trees on your left and the wide and deep Mudd Creek on your right, on holes 1-4 & 8,9. Toughest hole is #4 from the blue tee the fairway narrows with Mudd Creek on your right and mature trees forcing a "Tread the needle" Drive.
Cons: Flat & built in a flood prone area, will be unplayable after the winter thaw & Spring storms. Holes #2,#3 have a long and narrow "Marsh". Far enough away,on the left, not to be a factor. Unless you throw a bad Drive or a ricochet. #5 has a standing water area that gets closer to the Discatcher.
Other Thoughts: As with all new courses (Dr. James A. Dillon) more "Tweaking" will be done over the coming Days,weeks, Months,Years. Hope is,in the near future,the planting of trees. Not only on #5 but also #6,#7, for more of a challenge. Not enough dirt was left over from the tee pads for a mound, for a elevated putting green on #6 or #7. All brush as cleared,giving no protection from the creek. The parks dept. Clears out all brush about this time every year,for better flow when it floods in the spring. The "Safest" time to play would be mid to late summer. When the brush hasn't been cut and little to no recent rain. You can see your disc at the bottom, if your dumb enough to throw your $20 disc,on a course you've never played before,you can retrieve it. Check your ego!....bring some used DX plastic you don't care about,at least the first few times you play! Holes #1-#4 are protected from the wind by mature trees and hill on the other side of the creek. Community building has shelter with pop machine picnic tables. Plenty of parking,except if a soccer tourney is happening. 3/4 miles from the interstate a round should take 30 minutes or so. My rating of 3.0-Good is from the blue tees and in the "B" placement. I'd give the red tee and in "A" placement a 2.5-Decent/typical.
