Pros: - Full 18 holes with multiple tee boxes
- Nice mix of long and short holes
- Not a ton of trash
- Water hazards and well placed trees
- Sneaky mix of elevation. Nothing to major in terms of hills but there's enough to knock your shots up or down about 5%
- Usually not too busy
- Concrete tee boxes and distance markers
Cons: - Hole 2 plays through the parking lot. Watch for cars and try to avoid tearing up a disc on the pavement.
- A little too open for some holes. Wind is big.
- When it's busy on the weekends, there's a lot of people using the trails through the park.
- Holes 17 and 18 butt up against a city street. Watch for cars.
- Some baskets and long tee boxes not obvious
Other Thoughts: I like this course. I play it the most. I just started playing disc golf recently and I feel this course allows me to work on my game, but seems like it's a decent enough challenge for others I've played with with more experience. Overall its a solid course and worth the drive.

**There are currently a couple changes going on at the park. The pin for hole 6 has been moved closer to the tee and there is a construction trailer near the hole. All the trees surrounding hole 2 have been cut down. Not sure what the big plan is, but there's definitely some sort of change coming.

Pros: There are multiple tees on most holes, which is always a plus. There is a good amount of length on a few holes, with some shorter holes.
There are some trees for obstacles, but not many. A pond comes into play on 2 holes which is a much greater obstacle.
Not too much elevation change, there's one hole on top of a funny looking hill, but other than that it's pretty flat.
All in all a mostly open course that's good for beginners but is difficult for more advanced players if it is windy.
Cons: Not a whole lot of variety. Every hole is almost entirely open with very little to make you choose your path. A few pine trees are the worst of the hazards.
It was super windy, at least when I was there. I guess this could be viewed as a con or as a pro depending on if you wanted the challenge or not.
Some of the tees are a little tricky to find, especially a few of the long tees.
