Pros: Never much traffic besides people on the sidewalk. Good course to practice your drives and upshots. 9 more baskets have been ordered and should be installed soon. Holes are going to be shortened. Pond will be put into play on at least one hole with a get out of trouble line. New trees are slated to be planted in the fall.
Cons: Always windy, Way to long from tee to target on most shots. Not good for beginners unless you want to practice. Constantly in need of mowing. Lots of stickers in the grass on the fairways. Not enough obstacles.

Pros: This course has good signage and the baskets are excellent.
The grounds are well kept and on the back side of the course there is a playground.
Most likely you will have the course to yourself.
1-Long with the basket behind some pines.
2-Long with the basket up on a hill.
3-Open shot that throws across the ditch
4-Straight shot with the basket in the open.
5-Straight shot with the basket in the open.
7-Short hole, basket just in front of some pines.
8-Long and plays R to L.
9-Long with the pond on the right.
Cons: These holes are very long and there aren't a whole lot of obstacles to make the holes interesting. It gets pretty repetitive after a few holes. Wind obviously will be a factor here as this course is out in the open, so in the summer time it gets pretty hot here.
There is a walking path that comes into play on some holes so be aware, also there are some light poles on 1 & 8 and 9's fairways that are going to get pegged eventually.
There aren't any trashcans or benches.
The walk from 9's basket to the parking lot is pretty lengthy and the walk from 3's basket to 4's tee is long as well. Also the walk from 7's basket to 8's tee is long.
When it rains heavily the fairway of 4 is going to be a challenge to get across as it is basically a drainage ditch.
Other Thoughts: If grip and rip style courses are your thing then you are in luck because this one is just that. If you are into the park style of a course then hit up Riggs across town. If you like a more technical course then skip this one and drive over to Stone Creek in Derby.
I feel that this course was supposed to be the opposite of Riggs in that they wanted a course with more length, in that regard they hit the mark. However this course doesn't have much for variety or challenge, other than the length and the wind.
With all the other disc golf options in the area this course doesn't seem to get a whole lot of traffic. Not a must play by any means but if you like length then give this one a shot.
