Pros: SSA 61, on or over walking paths OB, longer holes include 3 tee to 4 basket, 7 tee to 9 basket, 15 tee to 16 basket, 19 tee to 20 basket, 18 tee to 22 basket, 24 tee to 25 basket, and 26 tee to 27 basket. Over 9,300 feet total distance. Best score was 57, rated 1033
Cons: Almost too long for two rounds of tournament play with a full course (69 players).
Other Thoughts: Three baskets are too close to the park entrance/bridges and only used during tournaments (4, 12, 13). Challenging shot from tee 10 to the practice basket, must land in the 10m circle or go to tee 1 for drop zone.

Max E. Roper
Pros: This is a 27 hole course. The front 9 aren't too long and are a good warmup for the back 18, which has a good mix of short and long holes. Every hole has an alternate tee position and multiple hole locations. The hole locations are changed frequently in the summer. A creek running through the middle of the course provides additional challenge, and most holes (warning not all) have easy access to the creek for disc retrieval. A good mix of holes with trees, hills, open space, and wind.
Cons: Recent tree maintenance has really decreased the challenge on a few of the holes. This is the only reason I didn't give it a 5. The course can get quite busy late spring-early fall, and some of the college kids don't have good course etiquette.
Other Thoughts: Warning: If you learn to play on this course many other courses will not be challenging or as fun to play as Roper. It's the price to pay for having an excellent course.
