Nice Rec Park...Forgettable Course
3 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: This is an absolutely beautifully maintained recreational park.
Great warmup fields available everywhere.
Nice restrooms on site.
Can borrow a disc from the Rec Dept if you want to introduce a friend to the sport. They also provide nice high quality scorecards with a course map - look for the mailbox near the Rec Dept entrance...that is the first tee.
Tons of ace runs.
Course is evidently an Eagle Scout project, which is in itself pretty cool
Cons: Most of the holes are way too short and par is very overly generous. It takes hard work to make a bogey. Only a few chances to throw anything other than a putter.
No baskets...its really disappointing to actually use trees/poles/signposts as a target.
No tee pads.
Very congested area that seems to often require you to skip holes. Hole 5 actually crosses the soccer field, while others cross the baseball diamond. The layout does not take into account how busy the area can be, and other park patrons don't seem to realize that there is a disc golf course. One guy actually picked up my disc and tossed it...
Other holes are uncomfortably close to the building's windows and to streets with parked cars.
Other Thoughts: Watch out for fireants, especially from holes 15-18. I got swarmed along with my bag and disc along the fence to the softball field. That was not enjoyable.
Take this course at face value. It is a purely recreational course made with what appears to be basically no budget. Its not bad for practicing short approach putts, but don't take it too seriously. And don't overthink the overly inflated "par" for most of the holes...just enjoy the walk in the park.
