Pros: The course is located in a big park with other amenities such as volleyball, swimming, fishing, and camping. The schule factor and resulting chances of losing discs is on the lower side. There are plenty of opportunities to crush the disc. The course provides a great place to practice playing in the wind. The ground is friendly for rollers. At one point in time this was the location of one of the biggest events on the pro tour.
Cons: The course is totally flat and mostly wide open. Few holes require much technical skill and the course overwhelmingly favors the power player. All par 3's. There is almost no tree canopy to provide any respite from the hot Florida sun.

The navigation is extremely difficult. The tee sign hole numbers don't match the numbers on the baskets. There are no directional signs between holes.

Several of the baskets are dangerously close to tee pads.
Other Thoughts: Don't be a dirty discer. Leave the course cleaner than the way you found it.

Pros: The front nine has a lot of open area to throw a good long powerful drive. There are multiple basket placement areas so things get mixed up often. The back nine is a bit more challenging than the front nine since it is more dense with foliage. You have to be more precise.
Cons: This course is not very well marked and for anyone playing the course for the first time can and will get lost. The signage is in disarray and for some holes there is nothing. They laid some new pads down and made them much shorter. Some of the brush on the back nine can gobble up discs. A lot of campers and RV'ers tend to use this area to walk their dog and they don't clean up after. So be careful, you might get an unwanted present from a pooch.
Other Thoughts: Also. This is not the best course in Brevard. try out the other course at Burton before making a judgment. Be careful of the disc golf stealer. There is an older gentleman who lives in one of the RVs that comes around when the course is not busy searching for discs. If he gets yours he will not call the number, but he will sand it down and turn them in for cash to Play It Again Sports! I had a great drive and before I could get to my disc he came by on a golf cart, scooped up my disc and drove off with it. I hunted him down and made him give it back. He also hides around the 18th hole and waits for you to throw, especially if it goes into the lake. He has a contraption that retrieves the disc and then he will drive off in his car.
