Pros: -Nice Baskets
Cons: -Natural tees
-Park is in a bad neighborhood (would be hesitant to play alone)
-Only 9 holes
-Course get flooded and really mushy after rains.
-Course was not designed by a professional
Other Thoughts: It's great that the City of Tampa agreed to another disc golf course in the area, however with so many other great courses within 30 minutes of here it left me never wanting to play this course.
I'm told that the park is becoming something bigger other than disc golf, which could be good if they invest in some nice pads and tee signs. But also could be problematic for foot traffic as the park isn't tremendously big.

Nice piece of land with some glitches
Pros: Most of the course plays through a canopied area with awesome big, old trees. There are many very picturesque areas and it's a pleasure to just make the walk. The odds of losing discs here are slight.
The shots required are mostly in the medium to medium-long range and present moderate technical challenge. Many of the shots present multiple options and there are opportunities to play creative routes, including rollers.
The course provides a good challenge for intermediate-advanced players. A round of 54 would likely be around a 930 rating. It also provides a good work-out for gold level players and wouldn't be overly frustrating for red level players.
Cons: Initial navigation is a little tricky. There isn't a main course sign and the first tee is out in the big open field. The first hole is 700 ft across the open field and then into the trees. The basket is tough to see from the tee.
Two of the tee signs were missing. (#4, #17)
The tee areas are natural at this point.
The tee for hole #7 is right in the middle of the fairway for hole #5/#14.
There are two places where the routing forces awkward, long backtracking from one hole to the next.
There are several places where tees are too close to baskets. There is plenty of room that could have been used to allow for more adequate safety buffers.
The course ends with hole #9/#18 about 1000 ft from the parking lot.
Other Thoughts: Don't be a dirty discer. Leave the course cleaner than the way you found it.
