Pros: East to see holes and next tee boxes. Newly made course so concrete pads and maps are very nice! Good for practicing mid range/putting game.
Cons: The holes are so short! only averaging about 120ft. definitly a beginners course. The first couple holes are by the waterpark thing and if its during the day it loud with children running around. The wooded holes seem like they rushed on it and you really have no strategy throwing through the trees, to many trees blocking holes on most holes.

The course is designed to be a teaching course for kids, families and new players, as well as even ADA park users. The 4 holes in the woods have the fairways fully mulched, from tee to pin. Each of the 4 has a distinct route to teach the student; hyzer, straight, an-hyzer, and S flight. You can trust that a great deal of time and thought went into those holes in the woods. And the average hole length is aimed at a 5th grader. So, you can probably play disc golf better than a 5th grader!
Neat little pitch and putt

Pros: -Very clean park. Looks well maintained. (Update: Parks department started to let this go this past summer. Watch the tall grass and bushes growing into #4, and the ground wasps got real bad on #6. Spit and polish means more than usual to me on such an intimate, purpose driven course. Gonna take half a disc for that )
-Trees in wooded area aren't very dense, but dense enough to get the point across.
-Bathrooms and water fountains are nearby, new and clean.
-Shelter on site with grills
-Every hole is aceable, but very few 'gimmes'. Each provides a touch of tricky elements.
Cons: -Trees need maturing, but that will come in time.
-Short holes, leaves you wanting to rip a drive, but there's no where to do it.
-Some tees are within shanking distance of the previous basket. Watch your back!
-Played twice in under 40 minutes. No alternate tees to spice things up.
Other Thoughts: Good place to practice approach shots and putter drives. Every hole is easily reached with a putter, leave the mids on up in the car.
Good course for the intent. While the holes are short, each provides a touch of tricky, well except 9.
The course manages to be short and entry level without feeling like a mini-golf course. No windmill gimmicks or shenanigans to be found. Neat little place to pitch and putt.

Pros: A course for KIDDIES...and Mom & Dad starting to play the sport. Great layout in a kiddie park. No hole over 200' giving true new players a taste of disc golf and WANTING more.
Round 9 Putting game! that gets longer & tougher. 2 putts behind trees with a small incline.
Can very well be a "Warm-up" course played by the Adv./Pro player working on "Go for it" putts or mid-range shots before playing 1 of the other 3 near by 18 hole courses.
Perfect course for a Glow/1 Disc tourney.
Large concrete tees, very nice signage. Large paved parking lot. Clean bathrooms, outdoor shower, BBQ grills, Shelters, 3 Jungle Gyms & nature trails in the woods.
The Hamilton Disc Golf Union (TheHDGU.com) will be having the Annual Discraft Ace Race Fund Raising Event played here!
Cons: Flat, No water. But they are not needed, with near by Dillon & Northview.
No Alt. pin locations-yet!?
Other Thoughts: For players who need more distance, here's a Safari layout; warm-up on the round 9 putting game...#1 Tee to #2 DISCatcher, #3 Tee to #4 DISCatcher, #5 Tee to #6 DISCatcher, #7 Tee to (90° dogleg) #8 DISCatcher, #9 Tee as designed OR to #2 DISCatcher.
