Pros: Well maintained
Variety of shots
Course makes full use of the land given -- it's amazing 18 interesting holes fit in this space!
Cons: Soccer, tennis and baseball means it can be busy with people, but you won't have to cross paths with anyone while playing
Carpet pads (although personally I like them better)
Lack of signs for next tee? (this one is hard since I know the course)
Other Thoughts: I play this course very often, since before the tee signs were even up. The maintainers show the course a lot of love and have cared for it and developed it out very nicely as time has passed.
The course makes full use of the land, and returns you nicely to the parking lot several times during play so you never have to play all 18, can skip holes, etc.
Front 4 plays in the woods, 5-8 play around them, 9-10-11 are back along and in the edges of the woors. Holes 12 and up are in the open and let you rip (particularly 15, being long and wide open).

Pros: Great flow from hole to hole.
Variety of hole lengths.
Some wide open holes, some holes surrounded by trees on both sides.
Nice, clean public park with tons of parking, and other activities going on.
Cons: While there are signs that guide you from hole to hole, they are rather small and just arrows. Got lost twice during my round but didnt take long to get back on track.
Padded mats are a problem for some people, i dont really care.
Overgrown grass in some areas, and lots of bugs.
Other Thoughts: Went on a midweek early afternoon. Only one other golfer out at the time, and no one walking the paths. Tons of wide open room to just rear back and let 'er rip!

Great Course...worth a trip

Pros: This course is on its way to be one of the best in central Florida. The park is huge and has a ton of facilities and things to do. It has plenty of space for a DG course and they are actually installing 2 additional holes to get it up to 20 for an upcoming tournament.
The flow is amazing for the first 6 holes. They have trees cut and laid down to form a path that takes you from the pin to the next pad. I haven't ever seen anything so helpful on any course I have ever played! This course has everything but water, which is fine with me. It is hard to lose a disc, except in some high vegetation in a couple of spots. The length is excellent and will challenge you, even if you have a canon for an arm. The woodsy holes are nice and technical, with obvious lines and fairways but without rough that will eat your disc.
Locals were really friendly and even helped us find two discs (watch out for the tall grass). These guys really care about their course and are working hard to maintain it. They have added a tunnel shot on 15 that is roughly 200 feet dead straight down a tunnel.
The course takes you back to part of the parking lot on hole 7, which is helpful...it is a ways from where the parking lot meets up with hole 1, though. The online map is really helpful.
Cons: Just a couple of cons. Carpet tees. High shule in a few spots. Really the only hole that I thought had an issue is hole 17 because the hyzer route has you throwing blind across a walking path. I fear that someone is going to come walking or jogging down the path and get nailed. Only a mando would help that but it would take away from that hole.
Navigation was a little rough getting from hole 6 to hole 7. There were some carpet tees out in the field that we thought were hole 7 but then it turned out it was over by the parking lot.
Other Thoughts: Great course. No other courses on this side of town and pretty accessible from the interstate. I will definitely be playing this when I am in town. I hope they will add real tee signs, mow a little of the shule and add concrete tees. If they did that, I would give it a solid 4 or 4.5

Pros: I'm going to start with location and directions. The park was very easy to find and the course within the park was also very easy to locate all the way at the back.
There is not a course sign yet, but the start is very intuitive. There is also a practice basket if you like to warm up a little.
I played on a weekday so parking was easy, but the course runs around a multipurpose park so parking could be more difficult when all of the baseball, softball, and soccer fields are in use. Not to mention the tennis courts.
The pads are large pieces of carpet, which some people see as a CON. But they were nice and large and staked to the ground very well so footing was not on my mind even though the surrounding ground was wet.
There are tee signs (wooden posts) for all of the holes. They all have hole numbers and distances.
Once you get going the flow is very intuitive. Most baskets are visible from the tees and the trails from one pin to the next tee are very well cleared. If there is doubt, small signs with arrows point you in the right direction.
The 18 holes are a mix of left, right, straight, open, wooded, long, medium, and short. The variety of shots will make you use more than just your simple RHBH. I found myself using discs that simpler courses don't make me reach for.
Cons: Some of the wooded holes still need some clearing.
If you go in the summer, bring some good bug spray.
Some of the holes ran along or across a walking path. I only encountered one pedestrian, but again I was playing on a off day.
Other Thoughts: I had a great time playing the course! I will certainly make it down again. This course is mostly fair. There are a couple of trees that could stand to be taken out, but for the most part, good shots were rewarded and poor shots were not punished more than they deserved.
Rec players should expect to shoot several over. Advanced players should be anywhere from +3 to -6. And I would expect a pro to shoot better than advanced.

Pros: It has left, right, and straight holes to challenge any righty or lefty. No discrimination. Front 11 is a lot more wooded and technical compared to Northside Park. The park is still pretty new and the designers and local club are working hard to improve this course on their free time almost daily.
Cons: I don't feel right filling in this area yet due to this course still being new. All problems I have are being resolved without bringing it up to anyone's attention.
Other Thoughts: Potentially with the baseball and soccer fields out there I can see some night games going on if the stadium lights are on. You could play 11-18 no problem in the dark. I would like to see that in the future for those who have to work long hours.

Pros: Variety of types of holes. Front nine several wooded holes and back nine several open holes.
Lots of elevation change
Cons: Markings to next tee are mostly non-existent
Chance of losing discs over 8' chain link fence that encloses park
Tees are mat, not concrete
Some tees missing, although park is new and maybe not completely finished
Other Thoughts: I liked the course as it is not extra long, although one hole is about 500'.
