Pros: - it's a warm up course.
- It's a fun, and actually challenging due to the bullseye baskets being only the inner chains. Makes even inside the circle putts feel uneasy.
- the pink bullseye baskets are easy to see (especially since they are only 100ish feet away, lol)
- There is a standing ace pot here at Marshall street if you pay in. I think this is the neatest thing about the course actually.
- the amenities of Marshall street and pyramids are all right there, which means on site a good real 18.
Cons: - it's pay to play (unless you buy something in the pro shop, then it's free which is what I did)
- it's only 6 holes and takes only 10 minutes to play which is really good or bad depending on how you see it.
Other Thoughts: This course is what it is and it does what it supposed to do. Marshall street gives you a net to warm up drives in. A putting field to warm up putts. And a tiny 6 hole course with pink bullseye baskets to warm up for the mental aspect. They even add an ace pot (which is much harder to hit than you would think) to make it fun.
I played this course before playing Pyramids and then Maple Hill (which is less than a mile away) and what a great way to warm up for the day. Really gets your focus straight, but I can't really rate it better than a 2, because... it's a 6 hole practice course with a gimmick. But a great one.

Pros: The baskets have only one set of inner chains with the pole, so your accurate putting range shrinks. You get some good putting practice, kind of like when you practice free throws on one of those hoops with a smaller diameter.
Navigation isn't too hard because the holes are so short. The average hole is about 110 feet. The design is actually pretty good, and several of the holes have multiple lines to the basket.
There are tee signs and pads for every hole, although the pads are short.
Cons: At six holes, this stretches the definition of a course. It's more of a novelty, which isn't a bad thing at all. It kind of fits the vibe of Marshall St and Pyramids.
Other than the putting aspect, there isn't much noteworthy.
Other Thoughts: If you buy something at Marshall St (which is about 10 feet from the first tee pad), you can play this for free. But this isn't the course you came for. There is too much fun to be had on the silver and gold courses to spend more than a few minutes on the pink one.

Pros: A course in miniature. Six baskets, with the farthest standing no more than 130 feet from the tee. All holes consist of a short curve leading to a bright pink basket. It's fun to grab a putter and throw down a round in five to ten minutes. The challenge, if you want to call it that, comes from the baskets. They have a reduced diameter, meaning getting it to stick in the chains is much harder. That means two things. That aces are still rewarding, even at the short distance, because you need to hit it dead center to even have a chance. And that you will need to absolutely park it to have a reasonable chance at a two. Just not much room for error putting.
On its own, of course I wouldn't recommend it. For kicks after a round at Pyramids? Should provide for some laughs and maybe the occasional triumph. Or alternatively, a much more fun way to warm up then the standard practice basket.
Cons: Not the course doesn't achieve the presumed objective. But that objective wasn't aiming very high. Pink won't provide more than ten minutes of fun. It's very well done for what it is, so it's tough to find a con, other then the severe limitations of what you can do on the course.

Pros: Six holes with very nice tee pads and baskets in great shape. Signage is accurate and top notch. Course is thought out well, with some elevation and mixture of lefty/righty holes. You will earn your birdies though, as these are not your typical DG baskets. These are a little smaller with not as much chains to catch the frisbee. You can leave your drivers in the bag and take a mid and a putter with you.
Cons: Now, for what it is worth, it is, after all, six holes. You can't really come up with other cons for it, but three is still a pretty good rating.
Other Thoughts: This is a good warm-up for a full round on the regular course, and you can play it for free when you pay for a regular round. If you like ace runs, this is your course, and you can also, for a dollar, try for an ace to win the pot. You will need a partner to verify your ace, like usual. Nice course to introduce someone to the sport, with holes no longer than perhaps 130'.

Pros: Quite possibly the best six hole course out there. Fly pad tee pads on every hole. Full color tee signs, although not entirely necessary due to the length of the holes. All the baskets are pink powder coated Gateway Bullseye Baskets. They definitely will make you practice your accuracy. Holes range from 96-125 feet and are in a previously unused area in between several holes of the regular Pyramids course. This makes it a very fun course for average and experienced players and a great course to teach someone on. Each hole is unique from every other one with either elevation changes or basket placement. There are two straight shots, two right to lefts and two left to rights. Takes only a few minutes to play each round. Great for a warm up to your round on the full course. And you only need one disc!
Cons: Only six holes. There isn't really anything bad to say, you just have to take the course for what it is.
Other Thoughts: Free to play once you have signed in for the day or made a purchase in the pro shop. For more of a challenge play the following Safari:
Pink tee 6 to Pink basket 1
Pink tee 2 to Silver basket 11
Pink tee 3 to Pink basket 4
Pink tee 5 to Gold basket 7
Silver/Gold tee 1 to Pink basket 6
