Pros: Good change of elevation on holes. Good hole length variance. Course is fairly neutral to throwing style, right or left hand throwers can do equally well. The course will reward throwers who can throw multiple type of shots though (forehand,backhand, tomahawks rollers).
Cons: Potential to lose a disc.

Fun course with decent variety

Pros: Full disclosure: I am the course designer

-good use of elevation, especially given how flat town is. Especially like holes 1 and 16, which are both a hard rip down a big hill.

-Several big open bombers, several extremely technical throws, with everything in between

-not busy, in a quiet park

-hole 14, signature hole: you need a big hyzer or anhyzer over a river to get to the landing zone, then a very precise approach shot onto a slope

-good variety of shots needed: you will have opportunity to try everything.

-great signage makes navigating for a first time player very easy. Includes detailed tee signs and bricks in the ground with arrows leading the player from baskets to next tees

-some beautiful views, especially at the end of hole 18
Cons: -Pros will find this course short, although with some challenges. There are several planned tournament-only holes which all players will find very challenging.

-no washrooms or other amenities

-hole 6 tee is on a moderately busy path

-hole 18 ends three blocks away from hole 1, there is no 9 hole loop that puts you close to your car. If you do want to do a 9 hole loop, your best bet is to do this order: 1-4, 10, 11, 9, 5-6. The path at the basket on hole 6 will take you back to hole 1.
Other Thoughts: On blind holes, look for a white stake. This is on a direct line between the long tee and the basket.

Us locals are happy to take anyone out for a round and show off the course. Email gpdiscgolf@gmail.com or find me in the forums.
