Pros: The course has a nice mix of wooded and open holes. A few holes require some good accurate throws while some of the holes (especially on the back 9) let you just throw hard. 12 and 14 have you tee off of a hill so you can get some decent distance even if you are a newer player.

Several holes have multiple basket locations and they are moved every now and again to keep it different. There is not too much traffic and is generally a nice quiet course.

No fees, the course is in a public park. Also it is not uncommon during the summer to see/hear bands playing on the stage during a round.
Cons: The signage is not that great. Some holes have incorrect distance and some are not marked. It gets a bit confusing around 11 through 13 but not impossible to navigate.
Other Thoughts: All in all it is a fun course to play. As other reviews mentioned there is an old pet cemetery on hole 6 which is kind of neat but in a weird spooky way.

A couple of tips:
If you go during the summer bug spray helps.

Be cautious of poison ivy as well. You will see dead brown vines on some trees where it has been killed off but it still is around on the ground.

To get to hole 2 after finishing 1 you need to double back on the gravel road.

On hole 10 beware of some water. The drainage creates a temporary pond to the left of the basket. Some days it is there and some days it dries up. On occasion I play from the pad on 10 to a shorter basket which is down the hill. Not quite sure which basket it is (maybe an alternate 9) but it works and avoids the drainage pond.

Hole 11 goes over the hill by the pussy willows.

Hole 12 goes down to the hill and the basket is by a large tree.

Hole 13 has two different holes as far as I can tell. The shorter one uses the gravel tee box (the only one) and goes straight to a basket near two trees. Sometime this basket is moved up the hill a ways.

The other hole 13 tees off from a temp black tee back near Rt. 1 and the basket is on the hill.

Pros: Great variety of holes from heavily wooded technical shots to wide open bombers. The course has great flow (once you get to know it) Good variety of tee placements and multiple pin placements on all holes make this course slightly different every time you play it. Local disc golf club puts a ton of time keeping this course well manicured and free of underbrush which was a problem at this course years ago.
Cons: Very pooorly marked course and with the fact that the pin placements constantly change it makes it even difficult for those who play it regularly to find the correct pin placement. Course is often crowded and unfortunately you do run into the occassional idiot who came to party not to play. As well as the people who dont respect the rules or let their dogs off their leashes etc.
Other Thoughts: This is my home course and my wife and I have easily played it 100+ times. I really likes the old course that played over the water and had a number more ace runs on the back 9 but the new couse has its fun holes. Definately play this course with someone who has played it before to enjoy it on your first or even 2nd time playing it. I really like this course, it is a great after work course as you can easily finish a round quickly.

Pros: Good variety of wooded and open holes
Recently been mulched all over the place
Short enough to be beginner friendly, technical enough to be a challenge.
Cons: Signs need some work.
Many holes have multiple pins and it often isn't clear from the tee which way to go.
Many of the long pin positions feel somewhat contrived
Does not drain well
Other Thoughts: This is my home course and I think it is an often underrated course. It is not super long so if you want to do a lot of grip and rip you aren't going to find it here. It does have a lot of wooded holes requiring some technical shots to stay on line and out of the trees. The local club is doing work regularly to improve the course so be sure to continue to check it out.
