Pros: -It has signs that have distance and hole number. They make it easy to get around the course. There are also large rocks by most tees which will not move unlike signs and also provide a bench if you need it.
-Like most small town courses, this course probably will not be busy.
-You can rent discs for free (with deposit) at the City of Hartford. That is what the board at the start of the course said.
-The holes aren't super short or all the same length which is better than a really short and open course with all 150-200 foot holes.
-You shouldn't lose a disc here.
-Adequate parking lot and was easy to find.
Cons: -This course is very very open. There are a few very young trees on the course but it will be years before they are any sort of a challenge.
-Awkward long walks after hole 3 and hole 7. The course plays in two parts of the park and it isn't a graceful transformation.
-Not a lot of elevation here.
-Natural tees which are quickly wearing away the grass. Could be muddy in the future.
-Without many trees, this course will be very windy often. This is SD.
Other Thoughts: This course is a decent addition to this small park in small town SD. I wouldn't stop here unless you are a course bagger or if you give the trees 10 years to grow up and provide a challenge.

Pros: Tee signs at every hole list par and distances. Located in a fairly new park in a small town. Every hole is an ace opportunity. A walking path through the park adds a small amount of OB, but not enough to make it interesting. The whole course can be played with a midrange or putter.
Cons: Wide open with almost no trees aside from a handful of new trees that were planted. Horribly designed and could have been slightly better if the design utilized the land given to its full potential. Some tall weeds to lose a disc in, but not much. Long walk between holes 3 and 4 and between holes 7 and 8.
Other Thoughts: Not really worth making a trip to play, but it is a good course if all you want to do is ace run without any obstacles getting in the way. Good practice for the local town folk as it is almost impossible to lose a disc there.
