Pros: Aesthetic--park seems to be newish with a lot of expansion planned for the future. For now there isn't much there besides disc golf. When we got there a family was flying an rc airplane.

Baskets--discraft, brand new shiny baskets.

Routing and navigation-- not too bad, pretty intuitive where to go except for 15 to 16.

Signage--great, except for the distances on a few holes (16?) Seemed way off.

Design--7,11&12 were great holes. 7 is a water shot with trees guarding the pin, 11&12 play through an old orchard.

Risk v reward--for all the things this course lacks, risk v reward is certainly not one of them. Plenty of risk to be had withthe water holes and the impossible rough through the woods.
Cons: Design-- lazy lazy lazy in a lot of places. 1,2,9,10 have to be some of the laziest hole designs ever. 1 plays across the entrance road to the park, 2 plays along the parking lot, then a sharp left and 250+ into the woods. 9&10 are huge bomber holes across a field where fairways and throws could certainly cross...

Teepads--the rectangle ones are nice. The two awkward circle ones on 9&10 are annoying as we are not throwing discus or shot put. The woods holes all had dirt (mud) pads.

Wetness--the woods holes were all very narrow with little chance to recover an errant shot off fairway, very wet playing across marahes. It is possible that wood chips are on the way in though.

Danger--when some of the other ammenities are in, this course could be very dangerous with proximity issues.
Other Thoughts: This was a good attempt but falls short of awesomeness, a few holes were cool, but the lazy and woods holes sort of ruined it for me. If you're in the area though, hit it up!
