Pros: Nice Park, D.G.A. Tee Markers, Mach 2 baskets, concrete tees except number 1 is asphalt.Can throw r.h.b.h. or r.h.f.h. on every hole so is good for mid range game. Very beginer friendly.
Cons: No holes over 300 feet. Park can get pretty wet. Only 9 holes
Other Thoughts: The park is never busy except early mornings and a few big events during the summer so people and disc players do not conflict most times.. Tennis courts are never used so there is no problem there. Good recreational course in a small town.

Pros: -Nice baskets
-Nice tees
-Good Signage
-Ace Ops
-Good beginner course
-Other things to do at park
-A little downhill on the 3rd hole
-Clean

Cons: -Agree with DT on the use of fences as a hazard. Didn't like hole 2 due to this.
-Also didn't like the flagpoles as hazards on 1, disrespectful even.
-Not too hard, no real challenges
-May need to watch out for others using the park
-Can be soggy after a rain, poor drainage
Other Thoughts: This course is a typical city park. It is of mid to short length. There isn't much wrong with this course but by nature it can't get too much higher than this.

Pros: Fun course, lots of opportunity to practice, both back and fore hand throws plus there on some holes there is room fore overhead shots.
Cons: Most of the holes are pretty short, 200-300 ft. and on holes 3 and 4 you throw pretty close to a children's playground.
Other Thoughts: Over all its a great course in a small town. Good practice for beginners

 Recreational Course, Good to Work your Short Game

Pros: Good DGA baskets (Mach 2, I think), signage at several of the tee areas, concrete tee pads for all but Hole 1 (asphalt).
Cons: Course uses the fences of the tennis courts and ball fields as hazards/obstacles on two holes (a personal pet peeve of mine), which introduces the potential for disc golfer vs. other park user types of incidents and/or safety hazards. Also, some of the tee placements create conflicts and safety hazards with the previous hole (AKA hosting a tournament or having multiple groups playing at the same time could create avoidable delays between shots and/or safety issues).
Other Thoughts: I think it's a quick, fun round. Be tough to play Hole 2 or Hole 5 when there was other people using the tennis courts and/or ball field. Especially if it were really windy or you had newbie and/or player with serious accuracy issues off the tee. With the park/course relatively empty, however, it's a fun short-course to sneak a quick 27-36+ holes in! And "par" for most players with a rating of ~900 should essentially be 23 (-4) or maybe even 22 (-5). Lots of short, relatively easy tee shots.
