Pros: Actual use of elevation, both upwards and downwards, there is a small stream that runs through the course that appears to more for runoff than anything else, so you do not want to end up in there, it's kinda stinky and sludgy. There are small bridges conveniently located right where you need to cross, so you do not have to be leaping across.
Well layed out and easy to follow without signs all over. Good flow from one hole to the next without having to hunt around or walk across previous holes where other players may be throwing.
Portable bathrooms are close by, and more than just one, like at some courses.
Clean and well maintained, doesn't interfere with the other play areas as it is a multi-use park.
DOG FRIENDLY!!! Seriously, you would think that more courses would be dog friendly, but no, especially in this area, this is a really nice feature.
Cons: Short holes, the longest is #18, which is about 400 feet. Average hole length is about 250-300 feet. I don't know the footage exactly as the sign posts do not have the little inset maps attached yet, but to be fair, if they made them longer, it would be just for the sake of making it longer, it wouldn't make it a better hole / course.
The front 9 is great, uphill, downhill, nicely layed out with the mature trees on the 52 acre park, but the back nine kinda starts to drag. It's mostly wide open field shots with not much in your way.
Other Thoughts: This is my new favorite course near me and I will adopt it as my home course, that is until Oak Brook finishes up the Central Park remodel. But even so, I don't imagine there being as much elevation in play there as this course has. One nice feature that I have yet to see at any other course I have played, is the practice basket by the parking lot. It has 9 different spots marked out around the basket for playing a disc golf game of HORSE with your putter. Nice touch.
Natural grass tees with colored posts in the ground that have arrows pointing towards the basket. This, I believe, is a mistake to use in this course. It is a brand new course which is not even finished yet, and there are already signs of wear on the ground and the grass is getting tore up. They had better get some concrete in there by next season or it will be jacked by mid season next year.
