Pros:
Double chain baskets are in decent playable shape. Almost all of the dual tee boxes are marked; nice metal signs on the red/short tees and blue wood posts on the blue/long tees. Accurate distances are posted on the signs. It doesn't appear as if this course would get much interference from non-disc golfers. The creek offers a nice natural OB hazard; when I played the water was so low there was no chance of losing your disc. Nice balance of wooded and more open holes as well as lefty-vs-righty holes. Restrooms are located by the #1 tee parking lot. Has three baskets (#3, #4, and #16) placed on little mounds that make putting more challenging.

This is a tale of two courses. The long/blue tees average 364' in length and the name of the game there is to minimize the number of bogies (4s). There aren't many birdie (2) holes from the blue tees. The short/red tees average ~261' and offer a boatload of birdie opportunities and there isn't a hole there that a good INT/MA2 player should bogey. There's a local configuration of "white" tees that are a combination of some short and some long tee boxes (see the course map posted here; white tees are in the circles).
Cons:
Some of the long tee boxes are getting grooved in a bit. Tee sign posts are missing for blues #13, 15 & 16. Three holes (#1, #5, and #6) all play precariously close to streets. Definitely a lefty-friendly course with an abundance of RHFH shots. No significant elevation changes.
Other Thoughts:
The local club is working to get concrete tees installed, so far all the short tees have been installed. There's an additional parking lot between holes #6 and #7.

After playing rounds from both the long and short tees my impression is that this is a nice course. The longs are potentially frustrating for newer players and the shorts are probably too easy for experienced players; so having both is a good balance. While I would not rate this as a "don't miss" destination course you probably won't be disappointed coming to play this one.

Pros: This course was fun to play. The park land is utilized well and the flow is fairly straightforward. There is a healthy mixture of open/wooded, short/long, lefty/righty holes. Probably my favorite hole would be 6. The pin placement creates an island hole effect and is not righty friendly. Loved it! Holes 10 and 13 were also memorable due to their technicality. The course is shady, with tall pines and small hills at some of the baskets. A creek comes into play on many holes.
Cons: Only complaint was the unmarked short tee on hole 14 but some locals were very friendly and helped us out. If I were the course manager my top list of things to do would be: install tee pads, get baskets straightened up a bit (i bet hurricane rita/ike had something to do with that), and update the tee signs.
Other Thoughts: The course map was on the billboard making it very easy to know how to navigate the course after taking a look at the flow. The short tees were fun, I can't wait to come back and play the long tees!
