Pros: Easy course to find with parking close to first tee. Lots of details went into this course. The teesigns are merely hole number and distance, but are in excellent shape and each one faces towards you after completing each hole. Thus, navigation is pretty easy. Though there are lack of teepads, there are nice Innova teemarkers on the ground that indicate tee area. Baskets are Innova Discatchers in new condition. Large and small trees throughout the course that come into play on every hole. It is easy to see how well thought out this course is. Though the holes are short, it makes great use of the elevation and trees to make for some fun shots. An excellent course for beginners to learn on. Experienced players can just take a putter and work on their short game and go for aces. The park itself is clean and well mowed. Fairways are easily defined and it would be difficult to lose a disc here.
Cons: It is difficult to really speak of any cons for this course. It is designed as a short 9 hole course for beginners. It does that well. Teepads are dirt/mulch that could become muddy, but minimal run up is needed anyway.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course to bring a new player into the game. Easy short holes with just enough challenge that will keep everyone happy. Although I didn't get an ace, it was fairly easy to hit metal on many of the baskets. One of the best beginner courses I have played.
