A lot of course for a little park
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: A bunch of different throwing styles at nice technical windows, without being too tight or too open.
Good Signage, makes navigating the unusual flow easy.
Nice tees, good flat concrete.
Quite scenic, and should be even nicer in the summer.
Tricky shots and mandos when necessary to keep you working hard, even though there's not much in the way of long range discing.
Cons: Very little in the way of long distance shots, if you just like to let 450' drives fly this isn't the course for you.
Bad drainage considering how hilly it is. The course was mostly a sheet of ice when I played it, but that didn't stop me from greatly enjoying the round. Probably amazing on a nice summer day.
The flow of the course is a little strange, with a lot of holes all crammed close together. Still, this doesn't really detract much from the course, considering.
Quite a bit of litter.
Other Thoughts: Very nice, especially given the space. This is in a densely populated area, and is one of the nicest courses I've seen in such a small city park. It gives a good experience, with a lot of holes you can be proud to deuce, and a few that will make you work to hit par. Not a destination course, but very much worth your time if you happen to be in the area.

Mostly trees, and some hills
Pros: This place has lots of trees which can make it a challenge during the summer
Theres some short holes good for people still trying to learn how to throw farther
Benches throughout the park make it possible for anyone to take a rest
Theres a spot in the middle of the park, usually used for baseball, that you can practice throwing your disc at
Cons: There is one hill that is steep!, so bring a hiking stick for that part, or just hurt your back walking up it
The 18th hole can be and mostly is avoided by alot of people because there is a playground right next to it, and basketball courts
On the tenth hole, theres a mando, and a good size creek flowing right by the basket, which disc can get caught into often
Other Thoughts: Even though theres a mando I believe on the 18th hole, it doesnt help with a playground on the side of it, whoever made this course could have put the 18th hole in a better location.

Pros: The course has mostly short distance shots.
Good signs to show where the basket is.
Quality tee pads.
Some elevation and nice RH LH shot variety.
Cons: Very confusing to find the next hole in quite a few spots and the whole course wraps around a very small area.
Many obstacles like basketball courts and baseball diamonds.
No water hazards.
Not many distance shots.
Other Thoughts: The park is pretty interesting because of all the really large old trees all around. If the signs showed you were to go next I would give it a little bump up.

Pros: Nice mix of short holes with longer challenging holes. some nice ace runs on a couple of holes. Tee posts with distance written on them. lots of shade due to the trees that are all around. short tees for every hole (yellow tipped 4 X 4 posts.)
Cons: Concrete tee pads while good yes but they are too short for some holes making a run up hard. even harder when there is a lip between the ground and the concrete possibly making you stumble on approach. can be confusing to navigate if your first time here.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoy playing this course. it is close to work so can play it real quick after work before i head home. the course lets you try and find shot lines to get through the vast amount of trees. a lot of holes are very good deuce opportunities. good course for players of all levels of ability. from #10 11 tee is between playground equipment and softball fence.

Pros: Short Course. Lots of elevation change and heavily wooded make it a difficult technical course, but, if you're just starting out like we are, it's a great place to work on accuracy. Easy to find tees.
Cons: Pads are raised, increases chances of tripping on approach. #18 is dangerous if your accuracy is poor. I understand the mando left, but still, if you release late you could wing a little kid. Some tees and targets are really close together.
Other Thoughts: Decent course. Fun for a change and one of the better elevation courses in GR.

fun practice course in GR
Pros: There is a nice variety of holes for the little space there was to set up a course. There are cement tees which is nice. The amount of trees poses risk but there is no rough to need to hack out of. there are a lot of ace runs and easy deuce holes. Good practice course in town when you cant get out to a more challenging course.
Cons: There are a couple shorter holes. Hole 10 is too short-- hyzer putter throw. Tee pads are too short for the longer holes. not enough room for a big run up. multi use park which requires waiting to throw or skipping a hole entirely--hole 18 is a fade right hole that the fairway runs right along a playground--there is too much of a risk of hitting a little kid if kids are playing.
Other Thoughts: I play here the most and it has become my new home course due to its proximity. there are plenty of opportunities to extend the shorter holes and make up new ones. I extend hole 1 to the path from the parking lot adding another 60-90'. Hole 10 is too short so i throw from the parking lot behind the tee. Hole 18 i have extended to across the creek from behind the tee. When #11 basket was missing i saw some people playing 11 tee to 16 basket which is fun. The possibilities are endless to make up new holes and work on the game.

Pros: Full 18 holes squeezed into a small park. Good mix of hole types. Mostly a technical course with shorter distance holes.
Cons: Tee pads shorter than most other courses. Sometimes difficult to orient yourself and find the next hole.
Other Thoughts: Watch your discs (lots of leaves) especially when the sun starts to go down they get real hard to find. I didn't see any mando signs...maybe they took them down?

nice city course
Pros: easy to play. good signage. fun open shots but treees are always a factor. it seems plastic is attracted to trees
Cons: if course was busy you will have to be on the look out for flying plastic object.
Other Thoughts: thank you kentwood and all the hole sponsers for making this course

Pros: Nice winding layout, Cement pads, the course has highly visible signage, which is very helpful because some of the holes would be hard to find otherwise. The course layout allows players an opportunity to throw a variety of shots throughout.
Cons: There are a lot of leaves on the ground, and if you you don't pay close attention you can easily lose a disc. Trees can be a struggle, though the course was no doubt designed to be technical it can seem a little unnecessary. Several of the cement tees are getting pretty worn out (specifically #2 and #17).
Other Thoughts: The course is good for both beginners and those who want to work on control through obstacles. The course is not very long although their is some variety in the length of holes.

Play in the leaves!
Pros: Chance of finding a disc in the leaves is high. Keep your eyes peeled!
Cons: Chance of losing a disc in the leaves is high. Keep your eyes peeled!
Other Thoughts: Fun course, once you know the layout. Best to triangulate your drive's resting spot with a tree or landmark that is directly beyond the line of the tee and your disc. No water hazards, but beware the children on hole 18!
