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.

Short, sweet and sassy!
Pros: Brand new Innova DISCatchers, Houck design Gold Tee-signs and Course Overview sign. Extra practice basket with "Around 9" putting game sign and pavers. Good quality 5' x 10' concrete tee-pads, well graded. Holes 1-4 are in a flat, grassy area of the park with some mid sized trees for obstacles to shape throws. Holes 5-8 are in a small woods with some large and lots of small to medium trees which demand various lines of flight. The last hole is back out in the open plain area and finishes up by the excellent mini-splash park, restrooms tables and other amenities. This course is the perfect first course for kids and families. Experienced players will get to use their mids and putters for a birdie / ace run feast! The course even complies with ADA guidlines for accessability for golf courses, so special needs players will be able to use all or parts of this unique design, depending on their abilities! The course is in a great neigborhood, with other 18-hole courses, The Hill @ Northview and Dillon Park just a stones throw away. With the future addition of the championship layout at Hazel Landing, the area is becoming a disc golf mecca for all levels!
Cons: Shorter, mostly open course. Won't host the Pro Worlds any time soon. But then that's not the type of course it is!
Other Thoughts: Great beginner course or a place to practice your mid-to-short control game before playing a round or two at other nearby 18-hole courses. Excellent amenities at the park make it the perfect place for families and kids to be introduced to the sport!
